"... initiated an adult style of songwriting that helped reenergize the singer-songwriter tradition in the '80s ... Townshend's ambivalent obsession with punk dominates both the lyrics and the music ... the album was raw, muscular and focused in a way The Who never would be again." - Rolling Stone "Empty Glass is confident, accomplished and lyrically as personal as anything Townshend has done ... Townshend’s songwriting makes the best of Empty Glass more than worthwhile. The hit single Let My Love Open The Door is just a great, unabashed love song and pop song ... his simple yet naked emotion is sincere, a notion that comes through in his overdubbed, barbershop quartet-style backing vocals and the song’s charming, three chord arrangement." - PopMatters.com Pete Townshend's most successful solo album, Empty Glass peaked at number five in the US and yielded the top 10 single Let My Love Open The Door. Co-produced by Chris Thomas, hot from his recent work with the Pretenders, Paul McCartney and the Sex Pistols, Empty Glass was ranked at number 57 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 best albums of the 1980s.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
