Let me just also say that The Who never wrote a song on the same plane of sucktitude as "All Of My Love".

Generally when bands discover production values only to be revealed in the future 80s decade it's not a good idea.

Meh The Who have recorded worse than All of My Love.

"Water" off the expanded Who's Next is horrible.

Also, Zeppelin overall > The Who.
Listen to Whole Lotta Love live from Knebworth - 1979 in all its glory.

Maybe. But Water doesn't get heavy radio play like All Of My Love. I can't even say the name without throwing up a little.

And since it was brought up, Baba O'Riley craps all over Achilles' Last Stand. Although Kashmir is a pretty even match.

All Of My Love is a great song. The middle section with the synths sounds a bit dated but that was an idiosyncracy of the era it was written in. The rest of the song is great. And it's better than Boris The Spider.

Entwistle wasn't known for songwriting.

True. And not one of their best.

But I still like it better than any Zep song ever.

I like to listen to Pete Townsend talk, he's an interesting fella, but I can't listen to any of his music, with or without The Who - other than Baba O'Reilly, that's a classic.

And Roger Daltry is just so goddamn goofy.

So you would take Boris The Spider over any Zeppelin song?

I dreamed the other night Roger Daltrey was in my basement, and he told me it was being haunted by Keith and John. I have no idea where this came from and how it got into my head. but yeah I'm a big fan.

It has a really strong Page solo for sure. I wouldn't say it's a great song, but it is better than many of the Who's throwaways.

BTW, to answer a previous question, The Beatles were a million times better than The Stones. One changed the face of music entirely, the other just made it a little better. It's not even worth comparing.
