Hmmmm.... a new Who album that isn't written by Pete...?

As I see it, this could only mean one of 5 things:

1. Roger's writing the next album.  Pete stated earlier that Roger was having ideas for the next album.  This would be interesting, but probably not that great.  Would possibly just sound like a Roger solo album with Pete playing guest guitar.

2. They're recording an album of covers.  Everyone's doing it nowadays (Rush, Patti Smith, etc.)  Could be good.  I'm sure that the list of songs they would pick would be fascinating.

3.  They're recording old, previously unreleased material written by Pete.  Could be good.  But a bit like "leftovers".

4.  They're re-recording old Who songs, breathing new life into them.  Eg: acoustic versions of A Quick One, and other rarities.  I would love this.  Last year, Roger stated that they were considering ways of playing the old much-loved rarer songs again, as they knew fans were disappointed that they were weren't playing these songs live.

5. They're recording an album written by Rachel.  Pete talks later about how she's writing good powerful songs at the moment.  Fans will hate this.  I would be open minded, but probably, ultimately, disappointed.
