The Who's 3rd studio album is, quite simply, a thing of beauty. The idea to intersperse the songs with snazzy advertising jingles is inspired; the material itself does not disappoint with Pete Townshend in excellent songwriting form. 'I Can See For Miles' (the only hit single from this collection) is a superbly crafted pop song and there is much more besides in the shape of tracks such as 'Mary Anne with the Shaky Hand, the amusing 'Odorono', 'Tattoo', 'Relax', 'Sunrise' and the interesting closing piece 'Rael (1 and 2)'. Special mention must also go to the photographer who provided the iconic images of the 4 band members on the album cover - step forward David Montgomery. This is an album that all lovers of classic 1960s pop music should have in their collection and so I say "Buy it and reminisce!!".
