Agree with that completely. The Who of My Generation are untouchable. Like The Small Faces they were good at three minute bursts of energy. I  find 70's The Who over wrought and pompous.  Each to their own though.

I think only Quadrophenia showed certain pomposity, though I still like it. In my opinion, the essence of Who's Next belong more to the late 60's than the 70's. The Who By Numbers is anything but a pompous album. And Who Are You is hard rock with some experimentation, recorded during the height of disco music.

I think the Who were one of the few bands who could be hard rock while maintaining interesting songwriting elements. Too many hard rock bands to me went for songs of three or four major chords. Little variation or substituting interesting chords. That can be fine for a few songs but gets tedious pretty quickly.

I agree. I always say that a main difference between the Who and Led Zeppelin, for example, is the songwriting. The Who were an unusual combination of virtuosity and great songwriting.

I can see the big attraction to mid sixties Dylan. He's a punk on a street corner with his guitar, snarling at the world. How many kids heard him and thought I cando that! That Dylan showed you didn't need a "good" voice or be technically proficient at your instrument is a revaluation. His impact upon popular music is, as with The Beatles and Elvis, beyond measure.
I can see why Beatle fans don't like him. There's no jangling guitar or sweet harmonies, and his lyrics can be a little inaccessible. But over-rated! Dylan! I cannot agree.

There's a logic to going heavy.
You play in huge (American) stadiums, you've got to be more expansive/theatrical/loud/brash.
And that is going to translate to your records.
I just don't like it!

That may be true, but I just see the Who as a hard rock band, and this album in particular is hard rock embellished with artistic issues.

It isn't the first time someone copied. Of course no permission.

I'm moving to Crimea for a month, see you soon. Hope I'll write from there.

Take care!
