4 stars This is definitely one of The Who's greatest albums as well as a top rock classic. It sounds a lot more dynamic, fresher and mature than the group's previous works. Townsehend's use of synthesisers and modified keyboard effects on several songs became very influential, notably on the opener "Baba O'Riley" and the ballsy epic "Won't Get Fooled Again" which is quite progressive work.

The songwriting is superb throughout. Other than the main highlights mentioned above, some favourite blinders include "Bargain", the piano driven "The Song Is Over" and the rock ballad "Behind Blue Eyes". The rest of the tracks are also very good.

There isn't really anything more for me to say that hasn't been said already. "Whos Next" is a great rock album and would be a very worthy part of your collection. 4 solid stars.
