Not as bad as people say
on November 28, 2012
This much-maligned album was initially released in December of 2009. It features nineteen hit tunes that were written by the incomparable Pete Townshend. The album was rushed out, not due to fan demand, but to capitalize on the band's performance as Super Bowl XLIV's halftime show on the following February.
Is it as bad as people say? I don't think so. The tunes are all very good, though admittedly they could have stood being remastered. If you have an even relatively extensive Who collection, then you will not really get anything new here, though it does contain some newer tracks than their 1983 Greatest Hits album.
As for me, I found this to be a very good album, one that I really enjoyed listening to. It has the best of the best, including I Can See For Miles, Behind Blue Eyes, You Better You Bet, and that stellar tune, Baba O'Riley.
