Something Else heeft een recensie van “Going Back Home” van Roger en Wilko Johnson.
“Going Back Home, mostly of songs written by Wilko and all of them featuring Daltrey on vocals, was one which I was not sure what to expect. I would not have paired Daltrey and Wilko naturally. However, from the first time the vocals come in over the guitar chords, the listener understands that this was an album which had to happen. If it had never happened, it would have been one of the biggest losses to the industry. (…) Daltrey has developed just a touch of the tenor tone about his vocals here and there. That adds a maturity to the songs, which is brought out wonderfully. Going Back Home is one of the best albums I have heard in a long while“.
Rolling Stone meldt: “I don’t know what is the more delightful surprise: The incorporation of the famous Chess Records “horsehead” logo on this album cover in its completely non-ironic manner, or that these two performers, who rose to fame in the ‘60s and ‘70s respectively, sound convincing, workmanlike, professional, and—oddly enough—actually hungry in their desire to create good music. Good, strong stuff, and one of Daltrey’s best showings in years“.
