The Independent heeft een recensie:
“Daltrey’s voice has retained its bellowing growl but with the microphone twirling more wearily than it used to, it is Townshend that injects the fury, windmilling the guitar so ferociously you suspect he’s powering Hyde Park by himself.
He’s in typically bullish mood, too, variously claiming to have foreseen the advent of the internet and barking at those who feels weren’t sufficiently engaged. And as ever, tensions are never far from the fore: the guitarist gives Daltrey a public dressing down for daring to suggest that The Kids are Alright was written for him.
The friction between the pair over five decades is legend, but that is precisely what made The Who such a thrilling band at their best, their alchemy of working class rage and adolescent ambition powering their fantastic rock songs.
Playing songs that sink or swim by their energy when you’ve qualified for a bus pass, though, is fraught with danger. Yet at 70 and 71, the pair do all they can to recapture that youthful exuberance”
