Two pure Rockers worthy to be celebrated.

Yes, these two musical gems are re-issues...re-issues that are fit for a celebration! A celebration for a certain Simon Townshend that has decided to launch his own label in the UK! In doing so, Townshend has re-mastered and filled his last two solo albums with some surprises and is releasing them on his brand new Stir Records.
'Looking Out Looking In' shows Townshend at the top of his creative powers. How he crafts a song, from the writing perspective and performing. A fresh, and varied collection of originals that showcase his enormous talents.

Although kept busy with his involvement in The Who, Townshend still pursues his own musical expressions and identity. Light years from TW, Townshend's original material still beats with the heart of the "mod" sixties style of Rock. A collection of catchy, up-tempo songs that will keep you nodding your head in pure satisfaction. 'Looking...' is really a showcase of his song-writing talents and gives us a more personal insight into his writing, a collection that touches on a variety of styles.

'Denial' continues with that personal side of Townshend – but more so. It is actually Townshend's latest solo offering, one that seems to be a little more aggressive. This set of musical jewels seems to be almost a "baring of one's soul", more personal and more intense. I find the whole of this recorded work stronger as well, being more defined in the song-writing area, as well as more emotive in Townshend's singing. Musically, 'Denial' is much more aggressive than 'Looking...' with each song full of impact! Overall, Townshend stands out as a bright light...

His decision to launch his own label and re-introduce us to these two pieces of work is a very smart move, one that will give him more control over his musical career and allow him to move from the side lights to the spotlights, a place that Simon Townshend truly deserves to be in!

'Looking Out Looking In' and 'Denial'... two pure Rockers worthy to be celebrated!
