By KaleHawkwood TOP 100 REVIEWER on 9 Jan. 2013
Format: Audio CD
One thing you always get with Pete Townsend is plenty of energy. The guy really can sing too! Remember those Who songs where Pete took over from - or harmonised with -
Daltrey. He`d sing even higher and sound just as good.
This terrific 1982 solo album is as good as many a Bowie or McCartney album of the period and a darn sight better than some of them.
An early highlight is The Sea Refuses No River, a lyrically and musically rich song with an impressive vocal from PT.
Not all the songs are quite as memorable, but he sings with such commitment and passion - Pete was ever a passionate man - that he commands attention.
North Country Girl is an uncharacteristically folk-tinged number, and Somebody Saved Me is a cracking good song.
The extra tracks on the reissue are welcome, and I`m very glad to have this often surprising album in my collection. Pete Townsend was and is one of the most talented of the British musician-songwriters who came to the fore in the sixties, along with Ray Davies, Lennon & McCartney, Mick & Keith, Richard Thompson and a few others. He`s certainly in that class, and this slightly patchy but no less fine album is further proof.
Do hear it.

I think Pete must have swallowed a dictionary when he was writing this album! The poetry of 'The Sea Refuses No River' must be heard to be appreciated; and the relevance of 'Somebody Saved Me' will not be lost on any Who/Townshend fan.
I've heard them all, and this is my candidate for Pete Towshends finest solo album.

I bought this for the classic single "Uniforms" must have heard it dozens of times when my mate owned it and couldnt see a compilarion with this single on it ....cant judge the whole album as ive not listened to it probably but its okay and gets a 4Star for Uniforms alone

I believe this album was written by Pete on or during his recovery from severe drug dependancy...
If you note this then the poigniancy of "The sea refuses no river" and "Somebody saved me" is inescapable...
True it is not an upbeat album, but it's more than the sum of its parts... "North Country Girl" starts as a song about a lost love then twists at the last verse into something much darker and heart-renching than you could possibly imagine...
I listened to this album after listening to Quadrophenia and Tommy... Cowboys was a far more fulfilling and lasting experience for me... Not to play down the rock-operas in any way, shape or form...
Pete has been part of my life since I can remember, since the release of "You Better You Bet" in 1981... I quickly got into the back-catalogue... Who couldn't fail to love that lanky, awkward, windmill of a man... powering out chords in his own destructive powerplay...
Townsend, Moon, Daltrey and Entwhistle...
Names to tattoo on the muscled arm of rock for an eternity...
Pete - We who are about to rock salute you...

A terrific album with some tremendous songs. For the second solo off the trot this should have been a who album and is a country mile better than 'It's Hard'.
