Synopsis

Album Description
Members of The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame and recent Kennedy Center Honorees, The Who combine energetic live performances with iconic songs that are embedded in popular culture. UMe/Geffen will be releasing THE WHO'S GREATEST HITS, a 19-track single disc career-spanning compilation, on 12/22. Beginning with the band's first single and concluding with a track from its most recent album, ENDLESS WIRE, it's a fantastic place to start your amazing journey into one of the most beloved rock catalogs of all time. In between are songs representing the many peaks of the band's career, from early singles to classic concept albums to more recent successes. Most, if not all, of these classic tracks are instantly recognizable. Millions of US TV viewers know three of these songs already, as the themes to CBS' popular CSI series: "Won't Get Fooled Again," "Who Are You" and "Baba O'Riley."

CD Reviews

Poor remaster job

"Poorly remastered, some are too soft, some louder, it should all be the same. Also not all songs are the long versions."
Hilarious

"WTF? I can't wait for the Who's next greatest hits package in three weeks and then the following one at Christmas. Maybe it'll include a bonus track of Pete Townsend explaining the Who's importance. Don't get me wrong Who fans- I like the Who. I'm listening to them now. I may listen to them later. I may have even listened to them yesterday but this is shameless and embarrassing. On a related note, I actually think Endless Wire is the best thing they've done since By Numbers in '75 despite it being a bit of a stretch to call it a Who album- more like Townsend solo with special guest Vocalist Roger Daltrey. Anyway, a new law has just been passed requiring all bands to release at least two collections of new material before releasing a new greatest hits collection. This law is punishable by large scale booing, hissing, jeering, taunting, and community service. I hope this review has been useless."
Time to face the music...

"This is yet another hits collection of The Who. It's totally not worth it for anyone, be they new, casual or whatever. Why? Because there are much better options available. To start, die hard fans have probably had mst, if not all these songs in their collections for years now. Second, "Who Are You" is less than four minutes long! That is a crime. Also, only one song from "Quadrophenia" -- omitting "The Real Me," "Drowned" and "5:15." And seriously, how many times do we really need "My Generation" on CD?

I personally am fed up with The Who. With only one new studio album in the last 30 years, they repeatedly continue to milk their legacy. Get "The Ultimate Collection" and be done."
