The songs' subjects are typical of Townshend solo fare - psychoanalysis
of his childhood tied to an Elvis motif on "Real Good Looking Boy," and
a heartfelt rumination on the death of Entwhistle on "Old Red Wine." 
Daltrey captures the essence of the songs, and the band's subtle
performance carries the rest. When the coda of "Old Red Wine" is
launched with a crashing guitar crescendo, it's almost as though The Who
of old are back. 

This David Brinn guy did a great job, as he put into words my feelings of the 
album and the new songs.  He obviously knows the band pretty well (except for 
the misspelling of the Ox's name.)  Thanks for the repost, Kev.

Jon in Mi.
