4 stars The Who By Numbers is a charming album. It is known to be the band's most personal and you can hear they've matured somewhat, sometimes revealing a cynical side which is interesting. On the whole, Pete Townsend's most gorgeous and inspiring melodies are here, providing a consistently solid, enjoyable listen. THE WHO add good diversity, mixing electric and acoustic instruments, from the quirky rock and roll numbers "Slip Kid" and "Squeeze Box," to the sweet and softer, melodic ones such as "They Are All In Love" and "Blue Red And Grey". "Imagine A Man" and the upbeat "However Much I Booze" is where they get some of their darker sides off their chests, but they are still pretty down to earth as usual with some witty lines thrown in for good measure. This is a work of art which is misunderstood. It appears it only strikes a chord for some, but that is how it works with art after all.
