Don't get me wrong, this is a great who compilation. Brilliant tracklisting, but with a few obvious omissions: Acid Queen (Understandable) and Anywhere Anyhow (Start wondering...) and Baba Oriley( OH.MY.GOD).

Now, my point. The Ultimate Collection (also available from amazon) has loads more tracks (double CD)and costs about the same. So, if your going to buy a who compilation, buy that nit this. Simple.

'Then And Now' is a superb collection of most of The Who's finest work, and hearing it from start to finish tends to make this listener think that The Who were Britain's best rock band after The Beatles. What grabs you is the musicianship, Roger Daltrey's flexible vocals, the diversity of the songs, and the witty and intelligent lyrics of Pete Townshend, notably on 'Substitute' and 'I'm A Boy'.

We are taken through The Who's Mod beginnings, via 'I Can't Explain' and 'My Generation (though that could be said to be a punk record ten years before its time)', and the sweet pop sound of 'The Kids Are Alright'. Then it's psychedelia with 'I Can See For Miles', followed by the eccentric 'Magic Bus', then a dip into the concept album 'Tommy', with 'Pinball Wizard' and the emotional, uplifting, but very simple 'See Me, Feel Me' - a contender for their best creation. A raw version of Eddie Cochran's 'Summertime Blues' captures the energy and power of their vaunted live sound, and, from the acclaimed 'Who's Next' album, 'Behind Blue Eyes' sees Daltrey stretch his vocal range, as he shows his prowess for switching from balladeer to rocker, and back again, effortlessly. 'Won't Get Fooled Again' is a song for our times. Beginning in a prog rock style it then really rocks, and is arguably the defining song for The Who, and the musical talents of Daltrey, Townshend, John Entwistle and Keith Moon. Townshend's guitar work coruscates, perfectly complemented by Entwistle's looping, pleasant, melodic bass, and it's a song made for Keith Moon to go on the rampage, attacking the drums as if they're his worst enemy. Daltrey delivers one of the great vocal performances in rock history, and, as a teenage brat, I remember scaring my Grandmother by playing her Roger's horror film scream...several times.

A fairly representative and cheap 'best of collection', with thoughtfulpackaging, but there are far better 'greatest hits' sets on sale. The onlypoint of interest this time out is the inclusion of two new songs.
These new songs seem to have been included in order to milk the die hard,completist fans, who need another greatest hits CD as much as Townshendneeds tinnitus. These two rather lame tracks sound more like outtakes fromthe tail end of the band's productive career in the early 80s. Weakmusical vehicles that have been revamped and given new lyrics, rather thanclassic tracks in waiting. There's a raucous enough delivery, but whatused to be direct and visceral now just meanders. Both songs are instantlyforgettable save for Daltrey's vocals and his range is dropping ever morenoticeably. In truth, it no longer sounds like The Who and anybody couldhave been playing Townshend's workmanlike guitar parts. It sounds morelike a Daltrey solo record (and not as good as many of his actual soloalbums.) I hope that the other songs being recorded for the new album tofollow are stronger and that the band hits its stride and sounds moreinteresting. If the name 'The Who' is going to be anything more than acynical marketing brand then they need to do better. As his solo recordsdocument, Townshend's songwriting has been on a downward trajectory formany years. He still seems to have something to say, but unless the songsare better why should anybody stop to listen?
It says something thatThe Who still manages to impress audiences with just two surviving membersand very competent, but uneventful sidemen. Undeniably a very goodnostalgia band, but long past being the great band that they once were.Remarkable for their age, but no longer simply remarkable. They hit rockbottom with the Face Dancs and It's Hard albums and, on the strength ofthe 2 new tracks on this compilation, they may simply not be capable ofanything better. However, I would love to be proved wrong!

In a recently published Q magazine special edition, Daltrey gives some background to the two new songs. Apparently Townshend was reluctant to record them and the duo succumbed to record company pressure to get two new tracks completed to include on this compilation.
