Endless Wire
5 stars My favorite album of all time. It seems impossible that an album can get much better than this. Just about everything is perfect on this album- the musicianship, the songwriting, the concept, the lyrics, everything is about as good as it gets.

After a couple of minutes of ocean noises and distant vocals, the album kicks off with one of The Who's greatest songs, The Real Me. One thing that The Who have always managed to do is that every song seems to have such emotion and intensity, almost as if they are pouring their heart and soul into every note, and this song is no exception. Every song from beginning to end serves and purpose to the concept, and every song absolutely rocks. Quadrophenia and The Rock stand out as being very memorable, being two of the few instrumentals that The Who ever did, and both are simply fantastic. The way the themes of the main character are represented by songs, and then have them blend together for the instrumentals is simply genius.

Every fan of music owes it to his or her self to listen to this album. It is essential to any music collection.

Endless Wire | 5/5 |
