It just doesn't move me.  It sounds awkward.  Like Pete & The Who
venturing into territory that really isn't their strong suit.  They can pull
it off.....(hey now!).....but it always comes up short.  Because The Who
aren't about those styles & nuances.

This is a problem with a lot of latter-day Who/Pete material, IMO.
