3 stars The Music Must Change! Most music had changed by 1978. And fittingly the songs on "Who Are You" are linked together thematically, all about the changing nature of music. I can't say there are really any bad songs on here. The highest quality songs are mostly on the first half. The catchy "New Song" is quite good although "Had Enough", "905", the rocking "Sister Disco" and the title track are the best. It does appear on most songs that Keith Moon had lost some of his power on the drums, but on the final track Who Are You, he certainly hits home. Also on the plus side, Roger Daltrey's vocals were definitely better than ever. As a whole, I don't think it's as good as "Who's Next", "Quadrophenia" or even "Who By Numbers" but The Who enthusiasts should find enough moments to enjoy on this heart-warming album. Three and half stars.
