That was supposed to be a best case scenerio! People will probably compare
it to Face Dances.

I meant a little excitement on our parts is enough, at this point.
We've been hearing about a new album for years. There has to be a
boy-who-cried-wolf effect. Plus, the two new songs give us at least some
idea of what this band will sound like on a record. Let's face it, a lot of
the wonder has been removed and now we're sort of waiting for the other shoe
to drop. I won't be worried unless I hear the album and still am not
As far as the album causing "a stir", forget it. I don't care *how* good it
is. And, I'd much rather have a great album that doesn't get noticed than a
medicre one that poeple talk about.
Let's take your frequent benchmark for publicity in Rock and Roll, The
Rolling Stones, for example. I actually have no idea when they released
their latest album. I know they've had some live albums and some new tracks
on compilations, Don't Stop being the only one I can name. If the Rolling
Stones don't get the attention of casual fans like me, then The Who are not
going to be causing a stir among anoyone but devoted fans, like all of us
here. And, selfishly, I'm fine with that.
