I never did put my impressions into words, but a few months ago you
convinced me to give By Numbers a closer listen than I had for some years.
After about a week of not listening to anything else in the car, I did
develop a deeper appreciation for However Much I Booze and Dreaming From the
Waist.  But...

I just can't connect with this song, for some reason.  And it's not some
macho thing.  I love many of Pete's more sensitive songs.  I really don't
know what it is.  By the way, what is "a child of any revolt?"

Oh, and They Are All In Love was the other song that I still can't get into.
Yeah, there's a couple of lines that hint at what it was like to be Pete
Townshend in 1975, but "zip magazine?"  Am I the only one that think that
sounds silly?
