A gift from the gods
on 24 November 2006
I'm not a great judge of music after one listen. I did like it after just that, then I listened again and wavered, but after another listen it soon dawned that the album is magnificent.
Daltrey makes sure there is fire in his voice as if to say "we will somehow find the old spark" as he roars "We're not strong enough" in Mike Post Theme.
The album never goes off the boil and I like the shorter songs, a good plan for the MTV generation to have a good mix.
Inevitably, its impossible to replace the greatest ryhthm section I've ever heard, but the album is so enjoyable, there are other reasons to like it.
