Frontman Pete?

I remember reading in "Who I Am" that Pete struggled with finding his (literal) voice for this album. Yes, he had sung songs for the Who on all of their albums, and had released "Who Came First" (which was essentially a compilation of personal recordings) and "Rough Mix" (which wasn't a proper solo album). But, here Pete was expected to a be a real frontman, and to provide lead vocals on an entire album of rock songs. The results are superlative, and it makes one think what the Who would have sounded like as an actual power trio... (Especially considering how awful sounded in the early '80s.) Anwyay, Pete's songwriting is stellar as usual, and is some of his most introspective stuff other than "The Who by Numbers." "A Little Is Enough" is one of my favorite songs, sans qualifiers. It consistently gives me chills. Pete sings with such sincerity and passion. For fans of the Who looking to delve into the boys' solo catalogues, this is the logical place to begin, as it is arguably the best Who solo album around.
