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.

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.

Whos Next punches, bangs, and blasts its way through each track as it rolls along like a steam train of an album. The guitar work and riffs, the vocals, and the crashing drums demonstrate a pinnacle of the genre.There's really not a whole lot to say tho:this is simply an album by a band at the top of their game, demonstrating how to perfect their sound and compose an LP with an expansive pallet of sound.
Best Songs: Baba OReilly, Behind Blue Eyes, Bargain
