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

From RobertChristgau 09/27/2015 23:59
With its acoustic guitars and drumless bits, this triumph of hard rock is no more a pure hard rock album than Tommy. It's got more juice than Live at Leeds. And it uses the synthesizer to vary the power trio format, not to art things up.
