4 stars ok.... my first official album review on here, and i was on here a few months ago on the forums, but i guess this is gonna be more of a review/rating gig only, so hello again. anyway, I have known of the Who since i was a fan of GHIII (with The Seeker on that game), and it got even futher with radio stations and what not. the inclusion of these guys as prog got me even more interested to hear if they were any proggy at all. kinda here and there, but definitely revolutionary with rock operas and programmed synthesizers (as well as the live performance). all of that is represented masterfully on this double-disc compilation which was the BIG catapult into the Who for me (thank you MP3 player, lol!) it comprises the whole history of the Who from '64-'82 (I Can't Explain to Eminence Front from "It's Hard", Endless Wire didn't peep until 2006). The booklet included here has a good essay on the same thing as well as photos and more information on the individual tracks on here. My favorite tracks here include Won't Get Fooled Again (of course), Love Reign O'er Me, and Substitute to name a few, but i love them all!! even though i have no squeeze box anywhere, i can deal with this compilation any day, proving this to be the best compilation out there. Yet, im giving 4 stars to this album because nobody's perfect (except my favorite albums ever made!!!) hopefully you guys can see me somewhere else on this type of "communication" somewhat. Prog teen, over and out.
