Can TR hit the rock vocal notes?

Daily Variety review todd live and give a general thumbs up. Commenting on the new material they say:
"Weakness," a love song where Achilles' heel and Kryptonite are among the terms of endearment, stands out. And the spiritually themed "Bardo" sounds like Robin Trower's "Bridge of Sighs" revisited. But "Strike" and the aforementioned "Mercenary," both approaching metal, put quite a strain on Rundgren's vocal cords"

They also comment that "Courage" (YouTube clip in earlier post) is rather Utopia like, and suggests the number of Utopia-like moments throughout the night suggest a reunion might be in order (I would not count on it).
