Tommy has some great moments but I'd say at least one third of it is filler. Very little filler on the Wall imo so I went with the Wall.

Don't like The Who at all. The Wall is a pretty poor album, rescued from a 1* rating by Comfortably Numb and Run Like Hell. It is far worse than any album from AHM to Animals, their peak period.
A TVR is not a car. It's a way of life.

I agree that both bands had better, and consider "Who's Next" and "Quadraphenia" far superior products from The Who.  

I still like "Animals" the best of the modern Pink Floyd discography. 


What's modern about "Animals"?

Really always loved the Wall, but I think Tommy is greater. To me it would be harder to choose between Ummagumma and Tommy.
