Exceptional, one of Daltrey's best on his own.

Roger's vocals are strong throughout the album as well as the production,mixing, and musicianship of the session players.

The Verdict A couple of the songs just don't work, but there a very few so you can get through them.

I really like this album more than any other Daltrey solo album that I've heard. There are 6 excellent hard rocking songs on this CD that are some of his best work; DON'T TALK TO STRANGERS,BRINGING DOWN PARADISE,UNDER A RAGING MOON,AFTER THE FIRE,LET ME DOWN EASY, and MOVE BETTER IN THE NIGHT. The rest of the songs are good, but not great. Roger's vocals are strong throughout the album as well as the production,mixing, and musicianship of the session players. If I was to buy only one Roger Daltrey CD, I would pick this one.

Even though I currently only have a handful of his solo albums, I tend to believe what most people say, that Roger's solo records are hit and miss. Sometimes you get a really cheesy or lame one, and sometimes you end up with a great album like this one. He even co-wrote four of the songs on here, and it reached #42 on the charts. I think it works so well because it sounds so much like a Who album (Pete even wrote the famous first track, "After the Fire," which reached #48), though unlike 'McVicar' it's not a de facto Who album because the other bandmembers don't play anywhere on it. These are the types of songs he should have been recording in his solo career all along, songs that really match his vocal abilities and personality well, where he can showcase primal screams (like at the end of "Rebel"), gruffness, and the equal ability to sound angel-sweet besides just gruff or raunchy. The songs are also very introspective; though I didn't realise this till it was pointed out, it also reads very much like a midlife-crisis album, a guy who's getting older going back to his old town and realising that he can never go back, that times and people have moved on, he's no longer as young and vital as he used to be, and dealing with the pain of lost love. The opening track of "After the Fire" brilliantly and poignantly sets the mood of the other songs to follow, and though I can't say if this really is true or not, not having all of his solo albums, it's said that this is his last album where he screams from start to finish, a last hurrah of fading youth, glory, vibrancy, and vitality. He made fantastic choices about songwriters, backing musicians, and songs, and it proves that not all of his solo albums were jokes or a waste of his incredible vocal prowess.

Roger Daltrey stepped out on his own in a big way when "Raging Moon" was released. Mostly spurred by the MTV play of "After The Fire," this album had a great combination. Daltrey in fine vocal form, a good backing band, good production and great songs.

Some have said this was like a Who album, and perhaps it was, though Daltrey has staked out territory for his voice on other recordings (witness his work on "Daltrey," doing Dave Courtney/Leo Sayer tunes).

This one just rocked from end to end--"Fire," "Move Better In The Night," and the title track are among the better tracks, while Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance contributed "Let Me Down Easy," which had a minor bit of play on MTV and radio (I think).

Roger also handled the ballads again--"The Pride You Hide" and "Love Me Like You Do" were well done.

Drummers and likewise also get a huge thrill out of the title song's use of 8 drummers, including Stewart Copeland, Mark Brzezecki (I hope I got his name right) of Big Country and others. Interesting, but I wished they'd cranked the drums a bit more.

Exceptional, one of Daltrey's best on his own.

Now how do i give this album the praise it deserves without sounding like an absolute Roger Daltrey fanatic.Yes have been a big Who fan in past years (like proberly every other person who has make the effort to check out his material) but first and foremost i am a fan of this album. It's "the Who grown up". It is Daltrey at his very best, the perfect soft rock album. Opinions are of course subjective but for what mine is worth i honestly do not think the likes of Bryan Adams, Bruce Springfield, or Meat Loaf could have put on a better rendition of this album. Daltrey emitts all of the qualities needed to turn a song into "rock song". Even in this studio recording you can not only hear but feel the raw energy, emotion, anger, frustration and heart and soul required for a true rock performance.. Just one album filler entitled "Fallen Angle", but hey, even "Sergeant Pepper" had "Within you, without you" "After the fire" like most of Townsend's material is a brilliant but very personal and almost self indulgent composition, but it works well because it also fitted perfectly with Daltreys position at the time.We can sumize that deep inside Daltrey is still sceaming "hope i die before i get old", but also coming to terms with the onset of middle age with the realizeation that he can still keep those youthfull fires burning inside. Haveing said that, this album does not have to be analized to be enjoyed. However i feel that i must reply to those pro Townend, anti Daltrey, reviews. Firstly, " weak songs and lyrics?" What about this example from "The Pride You Hide" "i found some things of yours today,with an old guitar you used to play, i through them all away.Read more ›
