Having casually followed Simon's career for many years, this is the first CD of his I have purchased. I was afraid I would be too critical and compare him to his brother, Pete, but after listening to this CD, I am impressed. Sure, he sounds like his brother at times but the sound and style is all Simon. I could say that the music is like gentle waves lapping at your feet and turning to a thunderous tsunami for your senses , revealing gems of Townshend treasure to enrich your spirit but that seems a tad Ken Russell-esque so let me say that the music is varied, soulful, sung with emotion, and catchy. I've been humming Looking Out Looking In and Bed of Roses quite a bit. Something New, There's A Girl and Electric Friend are great as well; soundtracks for life.I hear there is a new CD due out in the spring and I plan to get that one as well as hope that the solo tour for it will include Minnesota (hint, hint). Well done, Simon!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
