Truly brilliant from start to finish. As much as I like Quadrophenia and Tommy, this is a lot less sprawling and hits like a heavyweight. If you like The Who, then you almost certainly own this - and if you don't, then buy it TODAY!

Their best album, by far. Not a bad song on it. Great lyrics, great sound. One of the iconic albums of the '70s.

A classic and essential Rock N' Roll album, the musicianship is top notch and containing a lot emotion. This record is one of the best examples of four men working together to make something special.

From RobertChristgau 05/09/2015 19:09
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--are you listening, John Fogerty?--it uses the synthesizer to vary the power trio format, not to art things up. Given Peter Townshend's sharpness and compassion, even his out-front political disengagement--"I don't need to fight"--seems positive. The real theme, I think, is "getting in tune to the straight and narrow," and comes naturally to someone who's devoted a whole LP to the strictures of hit radio. Another sign of growth: the love songs.

95/100 = A

My all time favourite album. Every member of the Who is on top of their game playing pure rock n roll. The rock n roll feels traditional but there's a really inventive artiness on each of the songs, and it's pulled off with perfection.

The Who are at their best when they focus on playing. This is what they sound like when they leave all the bullshit on a concrete wall on the highway and play their guts out.
