About this album

Who’s Next is the fifth studio album by English rock band The Who, released in August 1971. The album has origins in a rock opera conceived by Pete Townshend called Lifehouse. The ambitious, complex project did not come to fruition at the time and instead, many of the songs written for the project were compiled onto Who’s Next as a collection of unrelated songs. Who’s Next was a critical and commercial success when it was released, and has been certified 3× platinum by the RIAA.

    If you're totally into vinyl, the original 1971 US/UK Decca pressings are the best sounding of this particualr album! Bypass the MCA label ones.

    Hasn't aged a bit. No matter how much I like Zeppelin (which is more than I love The Who), not one of they're album as a whole succeeds to still sound so fresh. Amazingly good. Also, the line "meet the new boss, the same as the old boss" is probably one of the best ever. So true, unfortunately.

    I can't say this is my favorite album by the Who, but I can't deny the fact that it is a masterpiece. It's amusing the fact that it was a failed attempt to make an even greater album, and it is still a sample of the great musicianship of the four members. What an amazing start of the decade.

    fank19 is so right, the album begins & ends on high notes. I'll even go so far as to say that the 1st & last songs are their very best.

    The phrase "all killer no filler" probably coincided with this album.

    He observado ,que discos editados en la decada de los 70. son anuciado por parte de los reponsable de esta web,en tiempos actuales ,como este teabajo de los who albun de 1972,y esto puede crear errores ,sobre todos a las nuebas generaciones de melomanos,en este caso este trabajo se edito con 9 temas en formato vinilo que hemos conocido .los que tenemos mas de 50 años, los datos actuales son de ediciones a partir del año 2000,co temas bonos para c .d.y habia que decir siempre REDICION DE CD DE 2005,por ejemplo asi se evitaria posibles errores de fechas.gracias

    sin duda el mejor trabajo de the who, los 9 primeros temas ,son de la edicion primera del año 1972,los demadas temas son del proyecto fallido de lifehouse

    First 2 songs and last 2 songs of this album are probably the best The Who songs.

    That tracklist is horrible, put (Live (1971 / Young Vic, London)) as a different album.

    I knew that many people was gonna say it's overrated, but I can't help but love it!!! My all time favorite album!! every song it's a masterpiece, baba o riley it's the best song ever written, but.... Imagine this album with "Naked Eye" , "Pure and easy" (the odds and sods version of both), "Lone live rock", "I don't Even Know Myself", "Join Together", etc......... This would be so icredibly awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
