My 50 Favorite Albums (continued)
This is going to be one of those best vs. favorite debates.
The best Who album is Who’s Next. Every song on it is fantastic. Five of the nine songs on the record made it onto their "ultimate" collection.
By my favorite Who record and one of my favorite double albums ever is Quadrophenia.
I love this record. The sounds of the waves on the beach washing over every song gives this record its feel.
I suspect this record was the major inspriration for American Idiot. The story and the songs are similar in many ways.
And the ending of this record, with Dr. Jimmy, The Rock, and Love, Reign O’er Me is simply fantastic.
Love, Reign O’er Me is my favorite Who song and in my top ten rock songs ever.
If you haven’t listened to this record or haven’t listened in a while, you really ought to.
