    Not a bad effort, but not one of their better ones. There's some cool songs on here (Slip Kid being the best by far, but many of them are just meh. It does have interesting lyrics though.

    There's something missing on this album. It sounds so simple when you compare it with the other 70's records. Maybe because it isn't so synth-driven, and was the only one which didn't start as a rock opera. Pete's lyrics here, however, are some of the best he ever wrote. Those dark, introspective verses are pure poetry. "How Many Friends", "Dreaming From the Waist" and "They Are All in Love" are some of my favorite Who tunes, as well. Perfect lyrics, perfect rhythm, some of Roger's best performances ever. This may be one of the best Who albums. By the way, I meant "Blue, Red and Grey" in my last shout. Silly me.

    My third favorite Who album after Quadrophenia and Who's Next. This is Pete's most intimate effort as a songwriter.

    Well, at first I always saw this as a failed attempt to make a solo album by Pete. But every song seems to need every member to bring them to life, except Red, Blue and Grey which is basically a Pete's solo song. I agree with everyone, it's a really underrated Who album.

    So underrated, It has completely awesome songs like dreaming from the waist, squeeze box (everyone hates this one but it's really funny), slip kid, Blue red & grey, Imagine a man & They're all in love, one of the best albums

    Uno de los discos menos valorados de los Who... lamentablemente.

    However Much I Booze is the best song by the Who and if it wasn't for Quadrophenia, this would be the best Who album.
