5 stars WHO'S NEXT is the Who's most exciting album, and one of the greatest masterpieces of 1970s rock. Some of the tracks are recognisably proggy in mood, especially "Baba O'Riley", with its extended, keyboards-dominated intro, and "Won't get fooled again" with its grandiose, synthesizer-generated climax. The album is notable because, by this stage in their career, all four members of the band had reached the highest musical level they would be capable of. Pete Townshend's guitar playing sounds wonderfully inspired throughout; compared to the 1960s, Roger Daltrey's singing has taken gigantic leaps forward; John Entwistle's bass sounds superb (I love his melodious playing on "Gettin' in tune") and Keith Moon never sounded better than on "My Wife" or "Song is Over". If you're not familiar with this album, and you have no objections against heavy rock that enjoys striking heroic postures, I would advise you to acquire a copy as soon as you can! The gorgeous bonus tracks (especially the touching "Pure and Easy") only make WHO'S NEXT all the more desirable.
