The WHO thread. Get on it.

Can we do this??

Welcome all, this is a band I'm getting into of late that doesn't get talked about a whole great deal round these parts.

So I'm taking the initiative.

I have Who's Next, which I think is terrific from start to finish, and just recently bought The Who Sell Out, which I'm yet to fully listen to yet.

I hear Quadrophenia (how do you pronounce that by the way?) is quite good, that Tommy is worth it, because, well, it's Tommy, and that My Generation can't be skipped either.

Discuss favourite songs, albums, Lifehouse, it's all good.

Just keep this going.

I never get tired of hearing Won't Get Fooled Again and Love Reign O'er Me.

I think they are two of The Who's best songs and also two of the best songs ever written. I just picked up Quadrophenia but still have to listen to it. Who's Next is a classic. Magic Bus is another great song.

All together, they're an amazing band that I wish I would have gotten into before their recent tours.

My ears hurt for days after I saw them.

They were my favorite band till about War I think, then U2 took over. Maybe earlier.

Of the albums I have...

1. Live At Leeds (10/10)
2. The Who Sell Out (9/10)
3. Who's Next (9/10)
4. Quadrophenia (8.5/10)
5. A Quick One While He's Away (8/10)
6. The Who Sings My Generation (7.5/10)
7. Tommy (6.5/10)
8. Endless Wire (6.5/10)

The Who is a pretty good studio band, but one of the best live bands ever. Seriously, compare some of the tracks on Tommy to their live incarnations on the deluxe version of Live At Leeds. It's ridiculous.

No self-respecting Who fan should be without The Who Sell Out. It's completely underrated and awesome.

The version of A Quick One, While He's Away from Leeds absolutely floors me every time I hear it. Everything I love about that band is represented within that song - their exuberance, playfulness, experimentation, and fucking badassery.

Keith Moon played the drums with a fish tank inside, guys.

I is now playing The Who Sell Out. Such a cool record. It falls apart a bit after I Can't Reach You, but it's all good.

I would call it brilliant, and in my opinion their finest hour. Endless Wire is also excellent and does not, I feel, receive its due acclaim.

The Who just fucking rock. They're definitely in my top bands. They've written some of the biggest rock classics of all time, and they're still going strong. I agree on "Endless Wire". It definitely doesn't get its due.
