Empty Glass based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Somewhere I read that when 'Empty Glass' came out, the other members of the Who (most likely John Entwistle) lamented that Pete Townshend held the material on 'EG' for a solo album and not for the Who. Compared to the Who albums that followed 'EG', it's hard to blame them - then again the songs are more personal than most Who, and it's Pete T's finest moment as a solo artist.
This is possibly the best album of all time, let alone Pete Townshends best work. From the catchy ruggedness of ''Rough Boys,'' and the dark primal feelings of ''I am an Animal,'' to the gripping lyrics of ''Empty Glass'' and the joy in the seemingly pop sounding ''Let My Love Open the Door,'' Townshend has covered as broad of spectrum of emotions, thoughts and experiences than one could believe possible in just ten songs. Though works as ''Tommy'' and ''Who's Next'' marked him as a songwriter, artist and rock legend, this album shows him as he truly is, a voice of the generations.
