After the experimental All the Best Cowboys Have Chinese Eyes, Pete Townshend returned to a more traditional form of concept album with White City: A Novel. Built around a loose narrative concerning urban despair, the album doesn't work very well conceptually, yet a handful of the individual songs are among his finest solo work, including the punchy "Face the Face" and the anthemic "Give Blood.
Pete Townshend attempted another concept album with 'White City: A Novel,' which also arrived with a film made from the same themes. On the surface, he was telling the autobiographical story of his upbringing in the titular West London borough, but those details were really just the connective tissue for a song cycle that tried to tackle everything from gender roles to racism. Originally I was going to call it The Tragedy of the Boy," Townshend told Spin.
