I've always found the Entwistle solo material much more listenable than the other Who members. Actually I always enjoyed his tracks with the Who as well from Boris The Spider onwards. I'd recommend Too Late The Hero to anyone interested.
How does this have no shouts?! John's lyrics, ah man, his sense of humour really shone through in his solo work. Even if I don't care for the tune, I can listen to his stuff just for the words. Seriously, who else can poke fun at suicide like this?
