This album is simply great. This is where it all came together for The Who: the flamboyance of their performances, the extravagance of their songwriting, their flair for the dramatic and bombastic, their fine musicianship and keen sense of how to just plain rock out. The songs are tightly played, yet full of room to breathe. And of course, "Won't Get Fooled Again" is probably the single greatest summary of what makes rock music such a great vehicle for social and political commentary.
Who's next, derived from the aborted 'lifehouse' project, another Pete Townshend rock opera that he was unable to complete. In a way, that was a blessing in disguise, as it leaves us with a classic album full of fantastic songs. Who's next, had a strut and swagger about, it's obvious the band are full of confidence after the success of, Tommy, and the, live at leeds, albums, and, who's next, whether it's your favourite Who album or not, it is the band's best, and all the members are at the top of their game. Opener, Baba O'Reilly, is one of The Who's most anthemic tracks, a fantastic song, and, bargain, is a great bluesy rock number. Love ain't for keeping, has a slight country rock feel, and John Entwistle contributes one of his best songs to the band with the darkly funny, my wife. Getting in tune, and, the epic, the song is over, are two excellent album tracks, while, behind blue eyes, is another classic Who moment. If there is a weak track it's probably the road anthem, going mobile, but this excellent album ends with one of the band's greatest songs. Won't get fooled again, is The Who at their brilliant best, an epic eight minute closing track, superb. Who's next, is one of the great all time rock albums, and it's probably for the best that Townshend didn't finish, lifehouse, as it might have ended up as bloated and overblown and the great songs here may have been lost in all the over ambition, as it is we are left with a tight and coherent record, a true rock classic.
It's impossible to deny that this album put all of the best songs at the very beginning and very end. However, I think this is still an all-time classic album. Every song on here is at least good and those four classics (yes, Bargain belongs in that group as well) are all some of the best songs ever. In my view, four 100's and five 80's which averages to approximately 90.
Baba O'Riley is freaking amazing. So many cool things going on in that song. Behind Blue Eyes and Won't Get Fooled Again are also pretty good. The rest is really uninspiring to me.
This is without any doubt my favourite album by The Who.
I love every song on this album. I even like the songs on the expanded edition like Pure and Easy and I Don't Even Know Myself. The beginning of progressive rock in my opinion, Baba O'Riley and Won't Get Fooled Again are revolutionary.
This album defined 70's rock. Progressive, intelligent and kick ass. A great record by a great band. Keith Moon will never die!
Taken from the remains of the Lifehouse project, this was one album for the history books. More than one song on the album ranks among the best ever recorded. Everyone should own a copy of Who's Next.
Who's next is the quintessential aggressive rock album that defined the rock sound of the early 70s sounds and it sounds just as vital and fresh even today. Despite listening countless times in various formats over 3 decades,I hardly skip a single track
Hard to believe there are so many legendary songs on one album. The bookends alone make this a classic rock classic. But the overall flow of the album, and the craft of songwriting is what makes this a true staple of an album. Not much else to say about it really. Fine work, and the Who's best studio album.
