CD Reviews

The Ox buries himself in '80s shlock-rock
T. Sileo | Charlotte, NC USA | 10/27/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"The whole appeal of John Entwistle's work was his darkly-humoured writing, thunderous bass, and distinctive yet very capable vocals. None of this are easily found in The Rock, recorded in the mid-80s. It is chock-full of musical cliches from the era, both musically and lyrically (stock guitar riffs and synthesizers, trite lyrics).

It's really an Entwistle album in name only, as he wrote only 4 of the original 10 songs, defers lead vocals to Henry Small, and shows none of the musical complexity of his Who or '70s solo work. It does rock a bit, though, in a mindless way. And the review above is right, 'Love Doesn't Last' is the best song on the album.

If you want a better sample of some of his later work, get the 'Left For Live' set."
Buy it for track 15 and a tribute to the greatest!

"Love doesn't last is a great song in demo version and why not spend a few bucks for the greatest bass player that ever lived. A true genius and a wonderfully twisted individual."
