    Shout outs for Leeds and Meaty.

    Quadrophenia is one of the most overrated albums of all time but it's a solid #4 in the Who rankings.

    By Numbers would be fourth for me, Sell Out would be 5th.

    It is actually hilarious to see how much more is Quadrophenia loved around here than My Generation.

    Difficult with The Who.
    ‘Live At Leeds’ and ‘Meaty, Beaty, Big & Bouncy’ are extremely essential releases for them and are IMO light years better than some of their regular albums. ‘Leeds’ is probably the best live album by anyone ever and ‘Meaty’ has all of their essential A-sides.

    Think Who Live at Leeds should be on the list, even tho it’s a live album...but it’s
    And yes, “Sell Out” deserves every bit of praise and consideration.....
    One of their Best

    2. Who's Next and The Who Sell Out (tie)
  15. The first 2 are really easy: Who's Next and The Who Sell Out. But then it's a tough call between Quadraphenia and Tommy. I'll go with Quadraphenia today, but ask me again tomorrow and I may pick Tommy.

    My Generation - pure raw power. maximum r&b and the birth of power pop.
    Sell Out - psych pop masterpiece.
    Numbers - Pete at his most confessional, great ensemble playing.

    I voted for Tommy, My Generation & A Quick One.

    Tommy is probably my favorite as far as an album goes, but I think the early period is grossly underrated in this poll while Who’s Next and Quadrophenia (while still great albums) are overrated. Listening to the 60s vs 70s output it’s like listening to a different band, and I think the 60s material is far superior. The grit and energy on those early tracks just cannot be matched: I Can’t Explain, The Kids Are Alright, Anyway Anyhow Anywhere, My Generation, Out In The Street, Circles, etc. I realize some of those tracks are non-album singles hence my vote going more to a period of time than a specific album.

    FYI I feel the same way about the Stones: 60s material is tops, Sticky and Exile are overrated, and everything that came after that is barely worth mentioning...
