I'm off to HMV in a moment.

I'm quite prepared for it to be rubbish, but I'm gonna buy it anyway.

They hoped they would die before they grew old.

They failed.

Two stars in the Sunday Times. The reviewer insisted on going on about Townsend's child porn escapade though.

The thing is Miller that i always say never trust the reviews even especially the 4 and 5 star ones . But in saying that the times reviewers are pretty spot on most of the time.

Not sure about that, I dont like Dan Cairns, and he's the one that reviewed The Who's album.

It seems to me that Pete is doing the majority of the singing.

First 9 tracks are not typical Who, but when the mini opera kicks of its very Who like.

I played this via headphones last Sunday and was genuinely pleased with most of it.

When I have played bits of it via loudspeakers since, I have not been so impressed.

Not sure what to make of this CD.

I want to like it and if it hadn't have been the Who I would have chucked it by now, it is a grower though, and several tracks are becoming quite good.

I'll give it a couple more days.

Never mind we can forgive them though for all the amazing stuff they have done. I've gotten used to doing that with my namesake!

So would you recommend it as yet?
Just when I might be on the verge of saying no, I find myself not being able to get one of the songs out of my head.

I've got a feeling its going to just keep on getting better & better, maybe its turned the corner?
