This album just blew me out! I'm just.... I never doubted them, and I was right!

Christ I'd write what I think about each track but I'm too tired. But.... wow.

It just came out Monday in the UK, Tuesday in the US.

I don't think they've ever really done proper acoustic songs, so 'Man In A Purple Dress', 'Marty Robbins', and 'You Stand By Me' are a pleasant surprise. My favorite favorite song is probably 'Tea & Theatre' - Roger's voice is amazing.

Then again, I've been listening to 'Mike Post Theme' a lot... and 'Black Widow's Eyes'... and 'It's Not Enough'... and 'Endless Wire'.. and......

Though I wasn't kidding when I said every track is my favourite, the stand out ones for me would be :

Mike Post Theme, which just kicks arse on every level.

Trilby's Piano ; I have a hard time believing that anything this beautiful comes from a guy who pushed Abbie Hoffman off a stage.... then again, he did write Love Reign O'er Me...

And I can't speak highly enough of Tea and Theatre. Townshend himself said the subject matter has nothing really to do with Keith or John, but they were all I could think of when I heard it!
Absolutely brilliant track, that one... funny enough I think its the sort of music John Lennon might be doing if he weren't in an ashtray.

Special mention to Sound Round, for having a very classic Who feel to it.... but FUCK it's too short.

Yep. It's all your fault. :P

The other thing that cracked me up recently is when you said there was a demo of "pee pee."

I laughed...I was like, "Oh, no - you DIDN'T!"

XD

I'm starting to collect every damn thing by The Who now. I adore them. So ofcourse this must be added to my collection. :)

Just saw them again last night. Great concert, even better than when I saw them in September. The Endless Wire stuff really sounded great, and they threw in 'Mike Post Theme', which is my favorite track from the album, along with the remaining eighteen.

WOW... Lord I wish I could see them. My chance was at Hyde Park 2006 but my parents said the tickets were too much and I didn't have anyone who was willing to go with me...

How was Pete's guitar playing... Still the same? Does he still do those spinning arm moves when he plays the guitar??? :P

Pete played even better this time than last time - Eminence Front was almost an instrumental version, he focused more on his guitar work than singing. He windmilled a lot, especially at the end of Listening To You. Magical.

Their tour is allegedly going on for another year, so I'm sure they'll swing back around to England and you'll be able to see them.

Do they mean the half part of Australia that would've been fortified if Japan had invaded in WWII, or the whole actual country itself (including that deserty bit on the west coast where I live).

I'd sell my kidneys to see those guys, every live video I've seen of them lately (from this tour) is pretty awesome.

I love Western Australia...so easy to murder someone and hide the body in our vast, Vast, VAST desert.

I'm going based on this - http://heatseeker.com.au/content.aspx?id=Tour%20Rumours&tid=3&iid=1

Seems to be fairly accurate..and shit.

Worrrrd.
