The Who by Numbers
The Who
(1975)

This is not the most well known The Who album.
But before I begin – it is weird to write The Who in the previous sentence. You would normally say “…most well known Who album…” skipping the The. But the full name is The Who. Not Who.
That had to be said…
But this album is weird. Only a few songs really stand out – “Slip Kid” the first song on side one is a great tune. Powerful, full of passion. “Squeeze Box” can be viewed initially like a joke tune because of the lyrics but it is a very well written tune. I lifted the needle up and played the song again – it is quite an infective tune.
The rest of the album meanders. It is OK.
Just OK…
