Three truly fantastic tracks (Baba O´Riley, Behind Blue Eyes and Won´t Get Fooled Again). Behind Blue Eyes is one of the most beautiful songs ever made about how powerless we can be when faced with our own emotions, and that we need each other in dealing with them: ´When my fist clenches, crack it open, before I use it and lose my cool´. Won´t Get Fooled Again is my absolute favourite. The irony that we keep on being fooled all the time! Unfortunately I find the middle part of the album weak, especially Getting in Tune and Going Mobile. These track disqualify the album from being among the greatest albums ever made, but it certainly contains some of the greatest songs ever made.
A rock classic!
Just a great rock record from start to finish. It really gets you hyped.
Great songs, great cover
If not for this album, The Who would be remembered as a British group with some hit singles and an uneven rock opera.
In my opinion, they are lucky the crazy Lifehouse idea fell apart and that they could make one tight album instead of a messy double LP.
Three undeniably great songs, and the rest are mediocre. Unfortunately, that's not enough for an album to be great.
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.
