    There are only two versions. The Who's Next one and the single edit. I don't think there's much debate as to which is superior.

    If you are lucky enough to get the chance to hear Pete Townshend's original demo then you will have a real treat! The song is stripped down to its bones before the band get hold of it and turn it into probably the finest all out rock song ever written.

  • Who's Next. There are a few mediocre songs, but the rest of the stuff is just incredible.

    I'd love to know which songs you consider to be mediocre!

    It's a fucking masterpiece!

  • Getting in Tune and The Song is Over.

    I'm not saying they're bad songs, they just don't keep up with the great stuff over the rest of the album. When compared to Baba or Won't Get Fooled again, they seem like filler.

    "Getting In Tune" and "The Song Is Over" are actually really nice, IMO. The 'lost songs of Who's Next'. Would have been a great single, them first "Getting In Tune", and then the flip side, "The Song Is Over".

    Both tracks are superb. My personal favourite on the album is "Going Mobile" yet it is always classed as a filler track. True Who fans will believe otherwise.

    Live at Leeds

  • Who's Next was the album that got me into the Who, with a little help from my friend. But I think my favorite album is Tommy. I just love rock operas, and Tommy is no exception. Great from start to finish. Another good one, that isn't getting much mention is The Who by Numbers. One of my friends really likes that album, and started to get me into it. I like it quite a bit, and my favorite songs from that album are Blue Red and Grey and Squeeze Box and How Many Friends. Quad I haven't heard very much, but it's got one of my favorite Who songs, which is Love, Reign O'er Me. The Who Sell Out is interesting to say the least, but it's good. The others I've only heard once or twice

    RIP ASR

    The Who by Numbers, definitely

  • Quadrophenia. My dad gave me Who's Next when I was young and I loved that. My friend's dad was always telling me and the guys to get Quadrophenia. Thank god I bought it because it is just amazing from start to finish. All the tracks are great.

    toughy

    i'm torn between, quadrophenia, tommy, and live at leeds, i like the live aspect of live at leeds becuase there is nothing better in my mind then the who live (I'VE SEEN THEM THEY ROCKED BOSTON) but also the rock opera aspect of quadrophenia and tommy is really just overwhelming. IN quadrophenia pete seemed to be way more accostumed to writing songs and i think the almost overuse of synthesizer makes it redundantish, so i guess i'd say tomme, becuase it was also the first who album i'd ever heard and the overture is like....wow

    my name is 905.
  • Tommy and Quadrophenia is best. Dunno which one I like best though. Third is Who's Next

    The Who Sell Out. It's... different. And AWESOME!

    Wikipedia has a good article on it:

    1. Live at Leeds - I use this to introduce people to The Who. I think it shows perfectly the kind of band they are.

    2. Who's Next - It's one of those albums you just put on and sit back. No skipping required!

    3. The Who Sell Out - Damn fine album…not exactly poetic but it works.

    you gotta get quadrophenia. it's my favorite and is a perfect album. it's all about a story of a guy with 4 split personalities. it's way better than tommy

    possibly Live at Leeds. a total staple.

  • Fave The Who Album....???

    What a choice... The rawness of "My Generation" to the slick "Who's Next"....but just of having " Happy Jack" (my personal fave) from RUN RUN RUN to Land of hope and glory mine has got to be "A QUICK ONE "

    STAY COOL

    Live at Leeds! The Who are very much a live band, so it makes sense that Live at Leeds is one of their best albums, in my opinion.

    I'd say their masterpiece is definately Who's Next, though it would've been the ultimate had it originally included 'Pure and Easy' as well as 'I don't even know myself' and 'Naked Eye' . I don't that 'The song is Over' or 'Goin' Mobile' are filler track at all, in fact they're some of my favorites.

    I think I'd put The Who By Numbers pretty high up on my list. It's got some of Pete's most personal work on it. Leeds is also great. I'm tempted to put Sell Out up there to, but i just recently got it and need some more time with it before I rank it.

    I suppose just sayin' Live at Leeds is a bit of a cop out and I should really say a Studio album. I don't know what I'd choose. Who's Next, Tommy or Quadrophenia? Hmmmmm. I wouldn't like to choose. I'd maybe say Tommy but I'd probably say somethin' different tomorrow. I also agree with what people are sayin' about Who's Next bein' even better with some of the extra tracks but it's still bloody amazing without them.
