5.0 out of 5 stars A superb album, a rival to Who's Next, 25 July 2012
This review is from: The Who By Numbers (Audio CD)
I wasn't going to write a review for this album as the ones which have appeared thus far are so thorough and are clearly written by genuine fans who have taken the time to listen to By Numbers closely. With one exception. No need for names but someone has declared that "Roger Daltrey (is) largely pushed into the background" ? Sorry, mate, that is so wrong. Daltrey delivers some of the finest performances of his career on Imagine A Man, Slip Kid, How Many Friends, In A Hand Or A Face. Yes, this is Pete spilling his guts (Daltrey refused to sing However Much I Booze as it was too personal to Townshend) but it's Roger who supplies the passion and adds blood and sweat to the poetry. By Numbers lacks the rock power of Who's Next (but to compare any work to that landmark release is unfair) but it is still a fabulous, indispensable album. All four members of the band are given the freedom to express themselves; the bass, drums, vocals are of the highest standards and the band is as tight as a duck's backside. This is NOT a Townshend solo project, please do not be misled by those who say it is. Do not live another day without this album in your collection.
