    His Who-tastic riffs remain belligerent and plentiful, but Pollard sounds grimmer, as if the former grade-school teacher suddenly realizes that touring in a van past age 40 isn't as much fun as he expected. [Jun/Jul 2001, p.111]

Nevertheless, a starting point for new fans of the band that are more inclined to mainstream hi-fi music. Full Review »
