A quarter-century after their last studio album, the Who are releasing the 19-song epic Endless Wire [CD/DVD Combo] [Limited Edition]. Built from the triumph of the mini-opera Wire & Glass EP (included here in its entirety), 'Endless Wire' mixes metaphors of music, war, and religion, while showcasing Roger Daltrey's ageless vocal cords and Pete Townshend at his windmilling best. Launching with a "Baba O'Riley"-like synth break in "Fragments," Daltrey asks "Are we breathing out or breathing in?" and Townshend answers with a thrashing, crashing Gibson. When the volume is turned up, there are echoes of three decades ago. "It's Not Enough" and "Mike Post Theme" conjure images of John Entwistle and Keith Moon. But the linchpin remains Townshend's songwriting, whether he's questioning faith ("Man in a Purple Dress"), showing gratitude for support ("You Stand By Me"), or dreaming of entertaining immortals into eternity ("Out on an Endless Wire"). By the time it wraps up we know that as long as Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey walk the earth in tandem, the Who live on.

Pete and Roger were kind enough to give us this list of some of their favorite songs. You'll find more artists' picks on our main Music You Should Hear page, http://www.amazon.com/mysh.
