Ultimate Classic Rock heeft een top 10 van wat zij de beste albums van 2014 vinden. “Going Back Home” van Roger en Wilko Johnson staat op nummer 4.
“Roger Daltrey was reborn alongside Wilko Johnson, as ‘Going Back Home’ transported the longtime Who frontman to an era that predates bombastic rock operas — or even the period when his band put the “maximum” in R&B. No, this was primordial, way before that. This was deep blues, reworked by a pub rock band for the ages. And it couldn’t have more perfectly fit Daltrey’s voice — weathered, as it is these days, following decades of arena-rock yowling. Rather than reaching into the toppermost of his age-corrected range, however, Daltrey sat in a gruff comfort zone. Along the way, he happily inhabited the grizzled crag these lyrics demand, and sharply reasserted his own legend apart from Pete Townshend”
In de top 10 staan verder nog albums van AC/DC, Tom Petty, Pink Floyd en Robert Plant.
