John Entwistle must have had a ton of material backlogged as a member of the Who in the late 1960s/early 1970s, as evidenced by the appearance of three solo albums in three years (SMASH YOUR HEAD AGAINST THE WALL, WHISTLE RHYMES, and RIGOR MORTIS SETS IN). As the latter's title suggests, Entwistle's fascination with the macabre still served as the basis for much of his work. Comparable to his first two solo releases, RIGOR MORTIS SETS IN is not unlike his few compositions that graced The Who's records around this time. The difference here is a heavier and darker edge. Standouts include a remake of his classic "My Wife" (which is one of the gems on The Who's classic WHO'S NEXT), as well as the straight forward "Gimme That Rock N' Roll."
