Our Review

The Who have always overreached. At their peak, it meant the most dramatic and challenging rock n’ roll ever recorded. At lower points, it’s brought a meandering, confused conceptual gestalt to a band that has mostly served as the tough front for singer-songwriter Pete Townshend’s neurotic self-doubts. Townshend’s solo work – and especially his multiple Scoop collections of home demos – provides interesting moments, but it’s his lifelong collaboration with singer Roger Daltrey that sets his compositions ablaze. Endless Wire, the first new Who album in 24 years, features its two surviving members front and center, and while no one will mistake this edition of the Who for the pure young man angst of Live at Leeds or Who’s Next, it does provide fans with a worthy update on their old heroes. As always, Townshend, yes, overreaches, providing too many songs that are meant to flow as connective tissue to an overriding theme rather than as independent vital organs. The immediate attractions are Townshend’s acoustic musings (“You Stand By Me”) being pitted up against Daltrey’s increasingly husky bark (“We Got a Hit“) while keyboard loops threaded throughout recall the days of “Baba O’Riley.”

Customer Reviews

Townshend and Daltrey are back to prove that they are the Greatest Rock Band in the world. (5 stars)
The Who is back. An fan for years, the Who has truly enriched my life. I cannot believe that this is happening. The Who has released a new album! The openers are killer tracks, such as the "Baba O'Riley"-esque Fragments, and the knockout "Mike Post Theme". The second half of the album is devoted to Wire & Glass, one of the best rock opera's written by Townshend. Yes, I'm going to do this, but I'm going to com

Strong Effort, Better Than Expected (4 stars)
Anyone expecting to hear another Who's Next or Quadrophenia will be disappointed with Endless Wire. However, if you have an open mind and accept the fact that half the original members of the band are dead, then you will be pleasantly surprised by The Who's latest effort. Gone are the breakneck jams of the past; instead, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey have cobbled together an interesting mix of folk/rock songs that tackle such topics as

Who's Next it is not, but Excellent it is (5 stars)
For a band that has been silent for 24 years, Endless Wire does not bring you back to the past, instead it creates a new body of work that hooks you from the very first song to the very last. Pete Townshend's lyrics are as crisp today as they were during the 60's and 70's. Endless Wire is an album very relevant to today's culture and Roger Daltrey's voice, while not as perfect as it had been, is still as powerful. You feel the pain and th

Few bands in the history of rock & roll were riddled with as many contradictions as the Who. All four members had wildly different personalities, as their notoriously intense live performances demonstrated. The group was a whirlwind of activity, as the wild Keith Moon fell over his drum kit and Pete Townshend leaped into the air with his guitar, spinning his right hand in exaggerated windmills. Vocalist Roger Daltrey strutted across the stage with a thuggish menace, as bassist John Entwistle...
