    As Long As I have You surpasses expectations at every turn, a high-water mark in a career already boasting a fair few triumphs. [Jun 2018, p.92]

    Muscular adaptations of Stephen Stills' How Far and Parliament's Get On Out Of The Rain stray into '70s Who territory, with stirring arrangements and hot Townshend licks, while his courageous tilt at Nick Cave piano ballad Into My Arms roils with heartache that can;t be faked. [Jun 2018, p.89]

    Daltrey climbs inside every song, slaps it around a bit and makes it his own. [Jul 2018, p.111]

    Like Going Back Home before it, As Long as I Have You benefits from Daltrey's diminished range, as it adds gravity and grit to his interpretation. This album also benefits from its tight backing band, which is graced with a swinging horn section but distinguished by Townshend playing a secondary, sympathetic role to Daltrey, helping to give this muscular, occasionally moving record an air of grace.

    Sometimes the album verges on melodrama but he has a way of selling it where it never sounds like he's acting. It's not all R&B, but it is Maximum Daltrey.

    His voice isn't built for such poignancy. This is a 74-year-old's dance record, not an elegy. [Jul 2018, p.27]

    With Daltrey suffering from a serious illness himself mid-way through this recording (the singer had a meningitis infection), this is an affecting album of reflection, survival and celebration both after this, and his work with Johnson in 2014.
