If you've been lucky enough to find my reviews in the chronology they've been written, you've probably read time and time again that I think John Entwistle is great at making engaging bass parts during jams. Three-dots on bass is an underestimate in my opinion.
Well, this entire song is almost a jam. The intro scales are pretty fun to me, but in the style of many songs there's no bass during the talking. But you're only through two verses, with scales during the instrumental breaks before you get into the jam for the rest of the song.
And when I say jam, I mean jam. And when I say scale, I mean dude is seriously going all over the place. It's just consistently moving and consistently changing and it's one ride after another. I have trouble describing Entwistle's jams, but I think I can do this one: spectactular. Yeah, that's pretty much it. The most disappointing part to me is when the song ends.
If you like energetic basses with tons of movements, this is a song that can do you no wrong. This also gets some bonus points from me for being the only live Who bass you can entirely upstrum. It's pretty killer though either way, so watch out.
