The extremely talented group Who have released their latest CD on the MCA Records recording label, entitled Whos Next.
I wish it weren’t the case but, it’s not each day that I get a CD for review that I can just pop in and comfortably listen to from beginning to end. There is usually a song or two that I just can’t force myself to get through. Not at all the case with Whos Next. Every track is enjoyable and was beautiful easy for me to listen to from start to finish.
One of the refreshingly nice things about this CD is the way all of the participating artists seem to be really enjoying themselves. Combine that with the overall presentation and you’ve got one of Who most impressive releases ever.
If you’re a Who fan this is a CD your collection flat can’t be without. In fact, this is one of those CDs that you don’t even have to be a fan of lname, or even Rock to know is good. This is just good music. Period.
While this entire album is outstanding the truly standout tunes are track 3 – Love Ain’t For Keeping, track 14 – Too Much Of Anything, and track 16 – Behind Blue Eyes.
My Bonus Pick, and the one that got Sore […as in “Stuck On REpeat”] is track 1 – Baba O’Riley. Good stuff!
