Great rock 'n roll from The Who on this one. I love this album! "Won't Get Fooled Again" is one of rock's most powerful songs with a great organ and synthesizer throughout it, not bad lyrics, either! "Baba O'Riley" plays the same way with more of that great sounding synthesizer. "Going Mobile" is yet another high energy tune, about living one's life out on the road, with the lead vocal sang by Pete Townshend.

"Gettin' In Tune" is a little more mellow, but it's results are just as powerful. "Behind Blue Eyes" is a wonderful ballad that turns into a nice rocker before it finishes up. Of course Townshend 's guitars are a main part of all this power, as is Roger Daltrey's lead vocals. John Entwistle, who up to this album's release was the best bass player in rock, proves it here once again. His song "My Wife", is another fine written number. And lets don't forget Mr. Madman, Keith Moon, who's fine drumming is yet another key part of the album. In all, a great band's best ever album. If you love rock music, this one is a must!
