Originally released in August 1971, Who's Next became The Who's most acclaimed work and one of the most important albums in the history of rock. Springing out of Pete Townshend's never-fully realized Lifehouse Project, it revolutionized popular music by introducing the use of pre-programmed synthesizers and sequencing. Who's Next also featured some of the Who's all-time biggest tracks, including "Baba O'Riley", "Behind Blue Eyes" and "Won't Get Fooled Again."
"Or is this Who's Best? That debate will rage forever, but there's no denying the sheer majesty of this 1971 classic, with regulation Who anthems like "Won't Get Fooled Again," "Baba O'Riley" and "Behind Blue Eyes." This disc has been reissued and remastered so many times, it's simply astonishing that Classic was able to extract more." – Hi-Fi News
