I'm currently listening to it on Apple Music. Nothing ground breaking, but some good catchy pop songs. A quantanamo bay protest song and a lot of self reflection.




The Who Eyeing First U.K. No. 1 Album In Nearly 50 Years

You better you better you bet The Who could go to No. 1.

The Rock And Roll Hall of Famers are on track for their first U.K. No. 1 album in almost a half century with WHO (Polydor), which leads the midweek chart.

With a New Self-Titled Album, the Who Have Made Classic Rock Comfort Food
Although it's been 13 years since their last LP and more than half a century since they formed, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey still know who they are

The first Who album in 13 years opens with a perfectly cynical Pete Townshend lyric: "I don't care/I know you're gonna hate this song." But it's kind of hard to hate something that feels so familiar. Roger Daltrey sings the lyric and the ones that follow, claiming the song isn't "new" or "diverse," with the same anger and conviction as the Who's earliest music, recorded more than half a century ago, and the melody is almost identical to the opening "I don't mind" of the band's 1966 single "The Kids Are Alright." He even takes it a step farther, later in the song, singing, "I don't mind/Other guys ripping off my song." But even when Townshend, who wrote the majority of Who hits, is the one ripping himself off, it sounds as authentic as it does ironic.

Well, that merits a listen after reading that.

The Who by Fire
They bicker. They stay in separate hotels and record without ever being in the same room. But Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend can still conjure old magic

Started listening to it today in the car.

Sounds good.

I always liked The Who.

Daltry's voice is still strong.
