Ultimate Classic Rock heeft een recensie van de vrijdag verschenen DVD “Live At Hyde Park”.
“Recorded in front of a crowd of 65,000 on their home turf in the summer of 2015, Live in Hyde Park is a testament to the power of the Who both in song and in performance. (…) Starkey is simply a powerhouse on the kit. Daltrey has had his share of vocal issues over the past few years, and while age may prevent the man from regaining the power of his early years, he more than holds his own throughout. He seems to have found that spot vocally that doesn’t hide from his age, but rather uses it to good effect. Unlike the posturing of fellow elder statesmen Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, Daltrey and Townshend never come off as anything but 100 percent genuine and real.
The performance is never sterile or phoned in, and there are some moments where it’s truly inspiring. (…) You can’t compare the Who circa 2015 to the band at their peak, but the bottom line is, the creature known as the Who are still delivering, celebrating the music, and doing so with class and power“.
