Review : WHO - Endless Wire
Times OnlineItís 20-odd years since the last Who album and Pete Townshend isnít holding back. ďAre we breathing out or are we breathing in?Ē is Endless Wireís opening salvo. No change there, then. Townshend is the last songwriter youíd accuse of writing clichés, but his lyrical concerns havenít really moved on since their first single, I Canít Explain, in 1965 ó heís still wondering what weíre here for, what itís all about.
PopmattersThe Who took a deep breath for 24 years before releasing this new album. That pause gave them time to, variously, make solo albums, act, repeatedly reunite, and make us really sad. With Endless Wire, Pete Townshend, Roger Daltrey, and four other guys who are really talented but whom you donít care about even if theyíve been more or less bandmates for a long time, come back to make a big statement. Or possibly no statement at all, depending on how you want to look at it.
Sputnikmusic.comAnd with that after 24 years of reunion tours, much anticipation, specualation, hearing loss, and another dead band member to get over, Who leader Peter Townshend and his sole surviving bandmate singer Roger Daltrey return to recording as The Who with Endless Wire, perhaps the final breath to be taken by this legendary band on record. Not looking to relive past glories or to pretend they are still the wild guitar smashing band of their youth, what Pete and Rog have given us is what Townshend is quoted as saying above, "something else". Meet the new Who, not the same as the old Who....
