5 stars Finally the Who are welcomed to ProgArchives! By far the Who's best album, Tommy is a collection of pop/rock tunes that tells the story of a tormented boy who makes himself sense-less (literally)....and finds music, which becomes his passion. And with this philosophy he becomes a preacher of sorts and develops quite a following. Or something like that. Everyones heard of "Pinball Wizard" and "I'm Free," but this album is as solid as they get. From the magical opening tune 'till the fade-out chorus which demands to be sung by the listeners, every song is a classic. This album is proof alone that Townshend was a genius; he didn't need to write Quadrophenia, Who's Next or Who Are You to prove anything. This album isn't hard to digest, and prog fans as well as music fans should pick it up if they haven't heard it yet. They won't regret it.
