Reviews of this exquisite album usually focus on the unique "I can see for miles" with its stinging guitar and stampeding elephant-on-speed drums - a most wonderful anthem to paranoia of female treachery. But "Miles", like the opener "Armenia City in the Sky" is not really typical of the album as a whole. Forget the ad jingles too. When I had this album in the sixties I taped it without the jingles - infinitely better! The great thing about a lot of the songs is that Pete Townshend sings them in his high register and he is at his yearning best. He gives The Who a much more sensitive sound than their later heavier recordings which suited Roger Daltrey's voice. Having said that Roger does nice teenage angst vocals on Tattoo, a beautifully crafted and lyrically sophisticated song, which adds to Pete's catalogue of investigating the meaning of gender. The stand out tracks, which rarely get mentioned, are "Our love was", "Relax" and "Sunrise" - all perfect summer love songs of a wistful, blissful type for which The Who are not generally known. These songs are so good that you wonder why Pete didn't return to this style until his solo album Who Came First with songs like "Pure and Easy". Maybe it was because he had a stampeding elephant to play with! The bonus tracks are a truly great bonus with "Glittering Girl" and "Early morning cold taxi" standing out as tracks nearly good enough to go on the original. I really appreciate the way The Who give extra value on their CD re-releases but I have to say that they unbalance the perfection of the original if listened to right through. This album is so spiffing that I wish I had never heard it and bought it on the strength of this review. How wonderful it would be to hear it for the first thousand times again.
