2 stars when i heard the who were going to record a new album i was very excited pherhaps another tommy or the unfinished lifehouse project. needless to say i was quite excited to go out and get this album as soon as i could. and all i can say was what a major letdown.This is the worst Who album i have ever listened to a huge waste of my money.

anyways it starts with fragments which i feel is just a rip off of won't fooled again and baba o'reily with that synth at the begining then roger starts his singing and i just ask myself why? why is still singing his voice is so oviously gone. it a very poor opener for an album i had such hope for

track 2 Man In a purple dress i thought was a rather good song. even with roger's now limited range he still manages to do a great job and it fits the song rather well and the guitar is decvingly simple i dare saythis is one of my favourite who songs of all time.

The album takes the same route as fragments (just ripping off older who songs very little creativity i feel) until we reach It's Not Enough This is not my favourite song by any strech it was one of the few gems on this album very much like man in a purple dress roger's vocals arn't terribly complex but the harmonies in the chorus really make him sound great and as per usual the guitar is great.

Sound Round one of the better tracks but much to short i wish it kept going and going but daltrey's voice kinda ruins its for me kudos though for the awesome transition into pick up the pieces

14.) Endless Wire The Title track was a joke. simple as that seriously what is daltrey doing he's half speaking half mumbling its horrible and the song isn't very intresting

the album then has the extended versions of endless wire and we got a hit also the shortened version of fragments all in all a very poor album i expect better from the who
