  Essential

| | See all Sigbert's reviews (1)

A timeless masterpiece, from a timeless band. Whos Next, is from start to finish ground breaking and years ahead of it's time. The Who were at their pinnacle as a live act and probably the biggest band on the planet due to their unsurpassed live show. The Whos live sound could never be captured on record and they were a hard touring band. They hated the studio and still produced this. I would say to anyone who loves music, to buy this fantastic album.

Man, this album... where to start? Let's just say it's THE definite classic rock album. It has everything: incredible vocals, beautifully written songs, insane guitar riffs, out of the world drum solos, and the best bit about it: outstanding musicianship. The chemistry between the members on this album is just gorgeous. It's like fate purposely put these guys together to release the perfect, flawless album. And that's exactly what Who's Next is.

I won't bother writing an essay, but I can't imagine life without having experiencing each and every one of these tracks. Once listened to, you simply cannot forget. I completely overplayed it on my first listening, and for a whole month it wasn't out of my stereo. When I though I'd finally give up on the listening streak, after about a week I come back to it, not expecting to be blown away by it, and again it's not out my stereo for a whole week. That's enough of my experience, let's get down to business: the real highlight on the album for me is the drumming. I'm probably jumping a bandwagon here, but Keith Moon's talent on this album is indescribable. Sure there's faster drummers (pick up any thrash metal album), maybe there's more better drum solos created (Moby Dick anyone?), but Keith Moon shows his charisma through the clashes of his drumbeats. It goes so well with the already perfect tracks, it stands out compared to any other instrument.

Now the vocals are beautiful, Daltrey can really make his voice heard. He can belt a simple "yeah" into something so awe-inspiring, it almost brings tears of happiness down your eyes. The guitarwork is also genius, and although overshadowed by the fantastic drumming, it really helps complete the package.

Although the popular energy-fused Baba O'Riley and Won't Get Fooled Again are undeniably the high points here, it's the more ballady tracks that really stick with me. My Wife has proven over time that it's the definite track for me, because even though Baba O'Riley stands as my most played Who song, this track never gets the skip. It simply cannot be overplayed. And by god is Love Ain't for Keeping underrated. I adore that song with a passion, it's the ultimate feel good anthem. Then there's Behind Blue Eyes, the one tear jerker on the album that can really get to you (stay well away from the Limp Bizkit cover, don't let it put you off this awesomely amazing tune).

I can't comment on the added bonus tracks, as I feel exhausted after the epic "original" closer Won't Get Fooled Again, so i often skip them, but from what I can vaguely remember of them, Naked Eye and Pure and Easy are pretty damn good.

Unfortunately I did end up writing an essay, but seriously this album deserves as much praise as all the half-decent albums in the world put together. It really is a classic. I'm running out of superlatives now, so I'll end by saying if you ever consider picking this album up, don't hesitate. It's classic rock at it's best, The Who at it's best, and well, best at it's best.

  Great album, knock-down price

If you like anything like the Who, this ones for you. See what I did there? Yeah, its a great album and you get the whole album, covers, and original lyrics sheets etc inside the cover. Mine had a slight mark on the front and looked a little old, but still great.

  NONE OF YOUR SOPPY LOVE SONGS HERE

| | See all livebythesword's reviews (2)

Fantastic, one of the Who's greatest albums - Won't get Fooled again, which they used to open with at concerts in the 70's, is totally brilliant, - for me rock doesn't get any better. It seems that most other bands write a okay/good song and then stretch it out for the track but Pete Townshend (a genius) does the opposite - he writes a long wide number and then squeezes down to fit in - there's so much going on when they perform. None of your back-ground easy here,The Who's music is serious stuff, Try Quadrophenia as well and see what I mean.

  What an album

| | See all cooldude469's reviews (10)

I liked this album when i very first heard it years ago, this is rock music at its best, my favourite track out of the many good tracks is "Behind Blue Eyes". Many of these tracks are so good The Who played them in concerts even the bonus tracks "Naked eye" and "Water" were played at many gigs.Get the beers out, play the cd and enjoy.

  Definative Album

| | See all PhantomPigeon's reviews (1)

It is my belief that all great groups produce a definative album. An album where every track is well produced and reflects the Band's true roots. To my mind, this is The Who's definative album. There was no better before or after, and now Mooney and The Ox have gone, it cannot be equalled.

  Perfection

This I believe is the best album The Who have ever made. Mixed with traditional Who music with contrasting tracks from rock to ballads. A must for any 'true' Who fan.
