Listening to you, I get the music… again.

After doing the entire “Meet the Beatles” cover album, The Smithereens decided to make a proper, all-out studio version of one of the albums that inspired their rock dreams of becoming a band in the first place for this 40th anniversary tribute. The Who’s unique sound will never be duplicated, but then again neither will The Smithereens’ sound that has made them enduring rock icons over the past 25 plus years. The result is part Who, part Smithereens. It sounds really good instrumentally as usual, and it works well. But Pat DiNizio’s vocal limitations are clear when compared to Roger Daltry (listen to “I’m Free” to see what I mean).

One thought to “Listening to you, I get the music… again.”
