Poll question: Favorite bloody Who album
So, I was on a total Who kick over the weekend. What do you wanna listen to right now?

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

"Who's Next."

5. I agree.
I love "Live at Leeds," but to get the full experience, you need the double-CD set (with disc 2 being "Tommy" in its entirety). I restricted myself, in my estimation, to original releases.

After narrowing it down to "Who's Next," "Sell Out," and "Quadrophenia," I chose.

8. ah the Who addiction continues
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 01:30 PM by tigereye
You Better You Bet ( not sure if that is the exact title) is stuck in my head. And my son liked Boris the Spider. However, I love Rough Mix, I love Uncle Pete wholess in an oddly spiritual mood.

Blame Colo Dem he started it!

12. "Who's Next" had 3 of their greatest singles.
"Baba O'Riley" "Behind Blue Eyes" and "Won't Get Fooled Again".

I can forgive "Getting In Tune" and "This Song is Over" because of the aforementioned triad.

6. I like the one where...
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 01:28 PM by southpaw
Townsend wrote a bunch of pretentious songs,
Daltrey sang them in a flat, tone deaf voice,
Entwistle played as if he were being paid by the note
and Moon thrashed about in a frenetic, overly busy and cluttering fashion...



Actually, Who's Next...

17. Dude... I have a YES avatar...
And yet I attack the Who for the very sins that YES is most guilty of... not to mention I clearly cop to the irony of it all in response to alhedges...

But, just for fun...

Roger Daltrey (yeah, I like the Who)
Geoff Tate
Barbara Streisand
Sebastian Bach
Vince Gill
Shannon Hoon
Jann Arden
Joni Mitchell
Adam Duritz
the list is endless...

13. Somebody had to vote for "The Who Sell Out".
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 01:35 PM by mac56
Arguably, along with "Revolver", the first-ever power-pop album.

Add on edit: an old college roommate of mine played "Blue, Red, and Gray" from "The Who By Numbers" over and over and over again, because it reminded him of John Denver. :puke:

22. I voted for The Who Sell Out
It was, strangely enough, a Concept Album--it was supposed to be like tuning in to a London pirate radio station.

And! It contains "I Can See For Miles"!

20. Odds and Sods?
yeah, i know it's b-sides and outtakes, but it's all stuff that's not on other albums.

i voted for Quadrophenia anyway. it's a stand-out in a career of stand-outs?
