5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Journey - Exactly what is says on the tin!, 22 Jun. 2008
This review is from: The Who : Amazing Journey - 2 Disc Collectors Edition [DVD] (DVD)
Wow!....

Bought this 6 months ago and have just watched it for the third time. I have so much respect for Townshend & Daltrey for making this film - The interviews are incredibly candid.

No subject is off-limits to them - they happily talk about the music; the experiences on the road; late band members Keith Moon & John Entwistle; and their relationship with one another - from the very beginning to the present day.

True to form, while Townshend comes across as slightly aloof in his niche as the original tortured artist; Daltrey, by contrast, is almost painfully frank at times, and comes across as very likeable.

I am only 24 years old - I got into the Who after stumbling across a re-run of Quadrophenia on telly about 10 years ago - Admittedly, I'm now a huge fan, owning all their albums. But I would argue this film is not only unmissable for anybody calling themselves a fan of the band, but also for anybody with an interest in music generally.

The Who have been a seminal band in the history of British music, and this film is an absolute gem. My Dad is in his 50s, and although he's never been a huge fan of the band, even he found this documentary interesting.

To anybody deliberating whether or not to buy - go for it. Treat yourself.
