Consisting of nine tunes and another of Townshend's beloved "mini operas" called "Wire & Glass," Endless Wire does succeed in shaking out the cobwebs. Songs like "Tea & Theatre," "Mike Post Theme" and the guitar laden "It's Not Enough" all boast the theatrics of the classic Who. The collection also includes a bonus DVD of the Who live in France this past Summer. Townshend also played most of the instruments on the album, wrote the songs and produced the record.
A lot of us had given up on The Who - what, with their endless "farewell tours" and all - but Endless Wire does show that there is some fuel left in the creative tank after all.
