I don't think it will sound much like their first album.  They'll never recreate that raw & dirty sound again.

The new album will be more slickly produced (hopefully not TOO slickly produced).  There'll be keyboards, and programmed synth parts too.  Altogether, it'll sound much more "sophisticated".  

This isn't a bad thing.  I don't listen to the MG album much anymore.  Far, far, less than any of the other Moon-era albums.  It's dated worse than the others.  Certainly lacks the depth and sophistication of their later work.

Oh, and another thought.  All the Who tribute bands out there (Who's Who, The Ohm, Happy Jack, etc): do they need to learn all these new cover songs too?  Do they need to try and fit all these other peoples' songs into their setlists too?

Presumably, these tribute bands are happy to fit Young Man Blues, Summertime Blues, etc into their act.  But how would they feel about having to play a bunch of new cover versions?  And what if they don't even like the songs chosen for the next album?
