Not as great as Under a Ragin Moon but good....

"THIS CD. SEEMS TO BE RUSH MADE. THE PRODUCER IS THE SAME AS "UNDER A RAGIN MOON". THERE IS A GREAT TUNE PENNED BY RUSS BALLARD (HIS CDS ARE VERY VERY GOOD), AND ON PARTICULAR GOOD SONG CO-PENNED BY ROGER DALTREY HIMSELF( BALANCE OF WIRES).
BUT THE LAST TWO SONGS SOUNDS ILL MIXED AND IS A SHAME BECAUSE THEY ARE GOOD SONGS TOO.
THE CD IS GOOD BUT NO AS "UNDER A RAGIN MOON" OR "ROCKS IN THE HEAD".
CHEEK OUT RUSS BALLARD...HE IS A GREAT SONG WRITER AND GUITAR PLAYER (EX-ARGENT).
HE PRODUCED ROGER DALTREY S' "RIDE A ROCK HORSE" AND ALSO WROTE "FREE ME" FROM MC VICAR SOUNDTRACK.
Well Done, But Doesn't Stand Tall...

"...which is really too bad. I remember when this came out in 1987...I was into the Who in a big way, but in a backward way, I'd heard Daltrey and Townshend's solo stuff first. Go figure.
Anyway, "Under A Raging Moon" remains to me one of Daltrey's finest hours, and this effort to repeat the process sadly did not hit on all cylinders, despite best efforts.
Alan Shacklock was brought back to do "Can't Wait," hopefully to rework the magic. For the most part, the songs are good, and the production is slick. But it does lack the bluster you'd expect from Daltrey.
"Hearts of Fire," a Russ Ballard tune is good, "Balance on Wires" is a moody, intriguing peace, and "Take Me Home" tries to do some sort of dance/jazz/rock fusion thing. Kinda works.
Daltrey also has the ability to take a ballad and make it great, witness so many great Who songs. Here he doesn't get the great song--"Miracle of Love" is okay, but a bit soppy, almost something like Rod Stewart would do, but Rog gives it a go.
This really isn't a bad record in any way. It just doesn't stack up well against "Raging Moon" and 93's "Rocks in the Head."
Either way, don't matter--Daltrey is pushing 60 and STILL has one of the most powerful voices in rock and roll!"
Some great tunes on this

"Compared to the stellar "Under A Raging Moon" this was not as powerful, but it had some great tunes nonetheless. I put this in, and listened to it all the way through, and never felt like skipping any tracks. Several were very good tunes."
