... Sell Out this 8th Who release is still a great album and my favourite of their later period
on 23 December 2014
Although not a classic or a unified concept in the vein of Tommy or The Who Sell Out this 8th Who release is still a great album and my favourite of their later period. This is unmistakably the Who, with Daltry in fine voice and Townshend's riffs dominating many tracks- though there is more keyboard in evidence on several tracks (this being the late 70s). Since Keith Moon was a little worse for wear during the recording of this - his last album - there aren't any notable drum sections. The keyboard works fabulously to build the intro to the mighty Who are You, surely a contender for their greatest rock out. Other great tracks include Had Enough and Townshend's Guitar and Pen, plus my favourite gentler track Love is Coming Down. The additional tracks are interesting but hardly essential with the exception of Empty Glass. A Great rock album.
