The Wall by Pink Floyd

The Wall by Pink Floyd

The Wall is less a collection of songs than a single work, which is sometimes frustrating; the plot lacks enough coherence to hold the snippets of music together. However, there are occasional flashes of brilliance on what ranks as Pink Floyd's most ambitious project. Most of these come from the fully developed songs, which have become classics in their own right. "Hey You," "Mother," and especially "Comfortably Numb" are subtle, incredible pieces of music. Though complex, they move at a relaxed pace, allowing the listener to absorb them slowly; this kind of pacing was something Pink Floyd excelled at. Also worth noting is the "Another Brick in the Wall/The Happiest Days of Our Lives" medley, which has become a staple of rock radio.

  • 1979 Quadrophenia was the ultimate British film based on The Who album by the same name. We learn about the Mod cultural wars!

  • I mean, come on. This is probably the most obvious recommend album on the site. But hey, listen to it with The Wizard of OZ and it'll completely change your perspective.

  • The last album with Keith Moon shows him sitting on a cair saying "Not to be taken away" If only that were true. It's an uneven album, but "Had Enough" and "Who Are You" are still among the best that they've ever written.

After releasing Who's Next and Quardophenia, there's just no way to really keep that momentum going. Instead, the song writing turned more introspective, as can be seen in "How Many Friends", a great song about feeling lonely even when you have lots of people around you. There still was "Squeezebox", which was a crowd pleaser and strong single, and more in the traditional Who vein.

  • Endless Wire is the latest Who release, with just the two remaining members of te band, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltry.

Endless Wire is the latest Who release, with just the two remaining members of te band, Pete Townshend and Roger Daltry. True, this is not the Who of old, but ther are still some good songs to be had. "Mike Post Theme" is catchy, even if we're talking about the guy who wrote the Hill Street Blues theme, and "Black Widow's Eyes" is well done too, with darker overtones. "It's Not Enough" and "We Got a Hit" are catchy as well and have really good guitar lines. The album is capped by "Tea & Theatre" is a sombre affair, which is fitting enough.

The last Who album with John Entwistle. It's definitely not my favorite Who album, as it has neither the charm of being absolutely strange like their earlier albums, or quite as aggressive as the albums from their prime, but there are still good moments to be had. Specifically, "Eminence Front" is a great song with a drive to it and some downright funky synths.

Overall, the record has some good tracks, but the band is starting to wane. "You Better You Bet" is still a great song though, but even in it's lyrics, you begin to see how age is affecting the men who once sang "I hope I die before I get old"

There have been countless "Best Of"s for the Who, but I think this one is worth the money. It's got a balanced track-list, but also contains two new songs: "Real Good Looking Boy" revolves around the theme of "Only Fools Rush In" and is a touching ballad, and "Old Red Wine" the weaker of the two, but a memorial to John Entwistle who had recently passed away.

Many of these songs can be found elsewhere, as it's a compilation record made prior to the release of the Tommy movie. There are a few tunes though that had been bootlegged widely, yet not formally released, like my personal favorite "Long Live Rock". Great intro to earlier Who stuff as well.

It captures the Who at their peak, with guitars a-blazing and full of aggression and energy. This was when they were known for their ear-splitting concerts and wrecking guitars. It's worth getting the deluxe edition, which provides an almost complete performance of Tommy on the second disc.

They decided to intersperse radio commercials with their songs (hence the strange cover photo-shoot, from which Roger Daltry got a cold from sitting in those bakes beans for too long). Includes classic songs "Marry Anne With the Shaky Hands", and "I Can See For Miles". Definitely an interesting concept album, with some really great rock and pop songs.

"Going Mobile" predicts cell phones and the internet in a way that would be unimaginable to most people in the 70s. "Bargain" is also a great, with aggressive guitars and a kicking rhythm backbone. How can you not love Keith Moon's drumming? This is when the Who were at their creative peak, creating timeless rock classics.
