What a fantastic way to start this iconic album. This is progressive rock disguised as hard rock. Just when you think the song can’t get any better, it keeps changing and surprising you with new instrumental bits and tempo changes. The moog synth lays down the musical foundation. Then the piano riff, later duplicated by Townshend’s guitar, starts to play. Then Moon’s powerful and thunderous drums come in. Then Daltrey’s raw and impassioned vocals cut through the mix. Pete shines on two guitar solos. And after the final breakdown, we are treated to a violin part that comes completely out of left field while the drums continue to build until the song is flying of the edge of a cliff. After the song ends, it feels like more than five minutes have passed. Brilliant opener and rightfully a classic rock radio staple.

Fantastic song, it's iconic and definitive of its time. Probably not their best song though, I prefer Won't Get Fooled Again.

On The Who's best album, they jump right into your grille right on the opening cut. "Classic" doesn't even begin to do this song justice.

The only song I can think of that is equally loved by both classic rock radio and hipsters.

Incredible opener. The three chord guitar riff (F5, C5, A#5), Keith Moon's drumming, the classic synth loop, Entwistle's powerful bass guitar lines are all incredible but the best things here are the beautiful, unique violin solo at the end and Roger Daltrey's vocals, his ability to bring Townshend's lyrics to life. His vocals are so believable. Nothing wrong with the song.
