Why is The Who's 'Who's Next' one of the most perennially played CD selections on FM radio? Surely it has retained the richness of sound that hasn't dated the music for over thirty years. With intricate music, spare, yet memorable lyrics, and powerful vocals and guitars, it has all the elements of a worthy classic rock album. 'Who's Next' may or may not be a concept album, but it doesn't really meander ever really. It seems to make a post-sixties statement about the meaning of power and what's essential …

Originally intended to be a sci-fi rock opera titled "Lifehouse", WHO'S NEXT is a classic that ranks amongst the finest rock albums ever recorded.

And the Bonus Tracks such as Naked Eye, Water, and I Don't Even Know Myself blow away the best recordings of Def Leopard and Whitesnake with the upmost ease.
