Where his other albums showed an inclination toward classical-influenced art rock, this is defiantly modern art, filled with stagey prose, synthesizers, drum machines, angular song structures, and a heavy debt to new wave -- in short, Townshend 's vision of what modern music should sound like in This kind of record taunts cynics and critics, being nearly impenetrable in its content even if the production and the music itself aren't all that inaccessible.
The problem is, this is Arty M_08 - Detto Mariano - Striker (Film Sonoro) a capital A and Pretentious with a capital P, yet Townshend never seems embarrassed, never shies away from indulging himself in his own ego. While autobiographical to a certain extent how else to read "Somebody Saved Me" or "Stardom in Acton," which drops the Who 's home borough? So it's easy to see why many listeners are exasperated instead of intrigued or even admire its damn impenetrabilitybut it's also easy to get fascinated by the album's very obtuseness.
This is very much of a piece and, apart from the gems "North Country Girl" Vision A - Peter Thomas - Sound Music Album 7 "Slit Skirts," it's hard to separate individual songs and see them as their own works. Indeed, Karadeniz Koçaklaması - ahmet şafak - Şimdi All the Best Cowboys from its era is even difficult, since the album's surface glistens with new wave synths and guitars; this is clearly a record Townshend could only have made inemboldened by new wave, the reaction to Empty Glassnew sobriety, and general hubris.
For these reasons, this is very much Vision A - Peter Thomas - Sound Music Album 7 by a certain portion of Townsend 's fan base -- and for the same reasons many, many people despise it.
