Movie Reviews

If you are a Who fanatic you'll dig it
Peter Alerich | 08/22/2009
(3 out of 5 stars)

"I'm a fan of the Classic Rock DVD series. The two best titles I have seen are the Fleetwood Mac "Rumours" and Elton John "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" titles. This installment about The Who's "Who's Next" album was a bit of a disappointment to me. It's more about the background of the album than the recording process as in the FM and EJ discs I mentioned earlier. Too much filler and too little insight to the actual recording of the album. I was very excited to get this item but rather let down after viewing it."

"At 13 yrs.old, Christmas of 1971, my grandmother got me the album as a present from my wish list. As the years have passed I've rebought on cassette, 8 track, 2 CD upgrades to the Deluxe Edition, and now the DVD. I've turned countless friends on to the album, including my son, and am working on my grandson. Every track shines. Not a loser in the bunch. But then, the original lineup never disappointed in my opinion. Recommend highly. Love when they disect an album at the mixing board !"

"This DVD is EXCELLENT! It not only features video clips of The Who doing material from the album, but it also features clips of how Pete Townshend put together a lot of the album. Also, there is some great footage about Keith Moon towards the end."
Great concept for a documentary. Great Album

"I took a chance and got this DVD because "Who's Next" is really one of the greatest albums of all time, and one of my personal favorites.

I came away with some real insights into the Who. First, these were fantastic musicians. Second, Townshend is really a great musical talent. Third, you realize that music just isn't at the same level any more. Not because there are not great musicians around, but rather the art form itself has changed. It is because this current generation has moved onto other musical forms. The concept album doesn't speak to younger generations. Too bad, because The Who show what power great rock music can have. It truly is a great art form.

When I heard this album in college, I was blown away. From Baba O'Riley - which is not about getting wasted, but rather is about wasted life - to Won't Get Fooled Again, the quality of the music is amazing.

You will get to see acoustic performances of several songs, a discussion of the Lifehouse concept which led to Who's Next (you could call it Townshend's Smile), several engineers discussing the individual tracks and how the totality of the music was created, and interviews with Townshend, Entwistle and Daltrey. This documentary makes you realize just how much work goes into creating great music.

Truly, a terrific concept for a documentary. I would recommend this wholeheartedly."
