2 stars Well, it at least is better than FACE DANCES. But, not by much. Along with many people, I believe that The Who lost their heart and soul with the passing of Keith Moon. This is pretty basic hard rock and AOR middle-of-the-road rock with little of interest. "It's Hard" was not bad, "Athena" was okay, but the rest was weak and "Eminence Front" just plain overplayed and annoying. Seems to be a lot of filler here. And little that is memorable. Pete Townsend's solo projects were actually better at this date than The Who. While this is not unlistenable, it just doesn't have anything to cling onto to recommend it. So, WHO'S NEXT or QUADROPHENIA it ain't. What it is is a last, almost, dying gasp of a great band. 2 stars, possibly 2 1/2.
