I like it.
In the Broadway play (Tommy...duh) it was well done.
I like it too. Kind of under-rated, even by the band, it seems, as they
sometimes skipped it when playing Tommy. I think it's a perfectly
written song, and it tells a complete, vivid, colorful story with great
economy and detail. It's good for the Tommy story, too, to shift
perspective from Tommy's world to the the real world, looking at him.
And it also tells us that all is not perfect in Tommy's world, though
he's oblivious to the danger.
