Album Review

With songs unleashed from the soul of Roger Daltrey, Under a Raging Moon is a short voyage into the psyche of an aging rock star who has plenty to reveal. Daltrey's bitterness about growing older while gasping for every last breath of a youth gone by gives this album heart and a certain emotional dimension, coming to a head on the title track. His thunderous but passionate ode to his former friend and drummer Keith Moon is a fervent downpour of frustration that can be truly felt inside every line of the song. A spectacular drum solo from Mark Brzezicki is a modest tribute to the late Moon and adds depth indefinitely. A multitude of drummers appear on the album, musically paying their respects, including Cozy Powell, Roger Taylor, and Stewart Copeland. The guitar slashing "Let Me Down Easy," penned by Bryan Adams, is a perfectly formulated rock song intensified through Daltrey's energy. While this song and all of the others act as outlets for his pent up anger, each one is sung, and sometimes screamed, with genuine passion and heart. Even the slower songs, like "The Pride You Hide," display a moving amount of sincerity. Not every song is a treasure, but all contain a intangible character that only Daltrey can muster.

Customer Reviews

Classic Daltrey

This album is without a doubt my favorite Daltrey album. It would be up there with "Empty Glass", "Smash Your Head", etc as best Who solo projects. "One of The Boys" where is it on itunes?? This album is a must for any Who fan and certainly any fan of Daltrey! Bryan Adams fans should also take a gander.

This album surprised me...

...way back in the day when I bought it, and today when I still dig so many of the songs on it. I was struck by the depth of emotion in his renditions of each song, and how his voice reached out of the stereo and demanded I pay attention. I was barely 21 when this album came out, but he made me understand about growing older, and how aging doesn't have to dampen your spirit if you stay true to yourself. In essence, after the fire of youth has burnt out, the fire of your passions-the things you care about, the things that move you-are still there. I found "The Pride You Hide" to be truly moving through the raw sincerity in his voice. The song would not have been nearly as effective if sung by a sultry, smooth voice. I was always surprised at how MUCH of this album I liked, and how much I still enjoy it all these years later.


Roger Daltrey's solo career has had it fair share of highs and lows. This album is most definetly a high. Although Roger does not reach his full emotional potential sans his pal Pete on this album, there are really some great moments here. After the Fire (which is actually composed by Pete) and Under A Raging Moon a really, really good songs and either could have easily been a Who song. They both rank in the top 5 or 10 Who solo songs. The Bryan Adam penned songs on here are good too, as well as "The Pride You Hide." This album is not essential to a Who fan, but those two tracks I mentioned before most certainly are.

Who lead singer Roger Daltrey forged a parallel solo career beginning in 1973, when the group had begun to fall apart in the aftermath of Quadrophenia. Born March 1, 1944 in London, Daltrey grew up in the same Shepherd's Bush neighborhood as future Who bandmates Pete Townshend and John Entwistle, performing with them as the Detours as early as his late teen years. Over time, Daltrey developed into one of rock's most powerful lead vocalists, a position to which he staked his claim on the Who's 1971...
