¨I don´t need to fight, to prove I´m right¨
Beautiful motto, The Who created a masterpiece that changed their life, the critics up at an incredible cantity, they were clapped, the other bands were scared of what The Who could do, they were full of imagination and creativity.
I listened to this album because I love the front cover, so, I download it, the first impression is just the best, the second one was strange, soft start and then PUM PUM in Bargain, when I listened, I notice why it was their best album

Best song: Baba O´Riley
Worst song: My Wife

Definitely the album that made me a Who fan. For the most part a full-on hard rock record, but "Behind Blue Eyes" really puts it over the top.

@TheRealMe - I am not commenting on the album here, simply commenting on your response to @swhaze. Your response is the exact opposite of something that is objective. You sound like nothing more than a fan being fan of something that he is a fan of. You can argue all you want about the quality of the record, but I don't think you really have a leg to stand on when discussing objectivity.

Also, no one cares about the correct spelling of Townshend and the fact that you know or don't know the correct spelling of his name does not make you understand more or less the quality of the work being produced.

Swhaze you are obviously in a haze and are not offering an objective comment. For starters please learn the spelling of "Townshend." Overrated songs? Yea right. How about the greatest collection of rock anthems and powerful melodies on a non- greatest hits album ever, accompanied by amazing musicianship by Townshend, Entwistle and Moon! Overuse of reverb?! The only reverb is on Goin' Mobile. You are entitled to your opinion even though it is devoid of facts and reality. Enjoy The Monkees!

On revisting this album after some 15 years I was surprised to find that it had not grown on me at all. I have a wisteria on my wall that has shown more promise in that department. I find the overuse of reverb on the guitars one of Townsend's least innovative moves. The tracks seem poorly put together and although the technology of the time was limited by today's standards, other groups like The Beatles, Stones, Monkees managed OK in producing quality output. The songs themselves have always been overated.
