4.0 out of 5 stars Brand "Who" don't show themselves up, 10 Nov. 2012
This review is from: Endless Wire (Audio CD)
When this album was first released, there was so much understandable hype & publicity, that it kind of put me off it for along time. But listening to it now after a gap of several years, I have to admit to quite liking the record.
The album is split into two sections, the first & more successful is a traditional selection of songs, with no underlining theme connecting them. The highlights being "A Man in a Purple Dress" concerning all the sex abuse within the church, & "Two thousands years", about waiting for JC's returns. Interestingly, a lot of the songs have a more acoustic feel to them, which give the tracks a nice delicate feel.
Then you have "Wire&Glass" ,a concept piece about the evils of the music industry (that's a subject never broached before).
There are some good songs on this part of the album, such as "We got a Hit", & "Tea & Theatre" (which The Who used to close their concerts). But I feel that they should have made a regular album upon their return, then followed with the high concept after gaining a bit of confidence.
Perhaps the reason for listening to the record so infrequently, is that The Who have released so many iconic albums, it just a bit of a effort to put "endless wire" on the turntable. Which is a shame, as it a solid record.
