CD Reviews

Joe Walsh and Joe Vitale add some serious bite to album

(4 out of 5 stars)

"I have always been a big Who fan.
Too late the hero has always been a favorite of mine among John's cannon of music. The album has it's fair share of classic John Entwistle humourous lyrics and topics.
I consider it one of John's best solo ventures.
I am also a big fan of Mr Joe Walsh and Joe's playing is all over the album. It would have been great to have seen them collaborate even further.
John's awesome bass work is well displayed throughout especially on "Dancing Master".

Favorite tracks are "Try me" which starts off the album in stellar fashion, "Sleeping Man", "Fallen Angel", and the epic "Too late the hero" title track. This song should have been a hit back in the day.
Probably Entwistle's best chance at a commercial solo hit.
The album has it's small spots of cliched rock tendancies, but you can tell the guys were having a great time making this album. It's still played in the car and house after all these years with enthusiasm.
If your a Who nut or ardent admirer, I would highly recommend this album.
Rest in peace John.

"Who knew. This gem, which I ignored for 25 years, except for "Fallen Angel" and the title track which are on "Thunderfingers", showcases great music, John's distinctive voice, and a dose of good time rock and roll.

My particular favorite is "Sleeping Man", with great vocal melodies, bass licks, and Joe Walsh's distinctive guitar work. All of the other tracks are solid, and the CD includes the usual detailed liner notes with John's thoughts behind the songs. If you are a fan of his, you won't be disappointed."
