Editors’ Notes

The Who's record label decided to target the casual-fan market with a series of greatest-hits collections that served up quick summaries of the artist at hand. At just 10 tracks, 20th Century Masters obviously can't do justice to a band with as many classic tunes as The Who. Still, there's not much to complain about with what's here. "Squeeze Box" and "Join Together" feel a bit slight compared to the omissions of "The Kids Are Alright" and "Baba O'Riley" ("Teenage Wasteland"). But any album stacked with "My Generation," "I Can See for Miles," "Pinball Wizard," "Behind Blue Eyes," and "Won't Get Fooled Again" is at an unfair advantage over the competition.

Customer Reviews

Not the best songs

As much as I love The Who, these are not their 10 best songs. The only songs of these which I consider among The Who's best 10 are Behind Blue Eyes, Won't Get Fooled Again, and My Generation. The Ultimate Collection has a much better selection of songs. Instead of this, try that, or Who's Next or Tommy.

Questionable, But Great For Starters!

Yes, ten is not enough, but for the value it is worth it. However I do fully recommend this album for people that are just starting to listen to The Who. To those people: you've made a very good choice to choose to listen to this legendary band. The Who is the perfect example of great classic rock the way it was meant to be! Good listening to you all.

The who rocks but...

Where's Baba O'Riley? That's one of there best songs other than that great. The who is one of the rock legends so don't put bad reviews on here just cause you're a rap fan! I'm getting sick of it. But this album does deserve a four instead of a five cause it is missing some of the greatest hits.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s, '00s

Few rock & roll bands were riddled with as many contradictions as the Who. All four members had wildly different personalities, as their notorious live performances demonstrated: Keith Moon fell over his drum kit while Pete Townshend leaped into the air with his guitar, spinning his right hand in exaggerated windmills. Vocalist Roger Daltrey prowled the stage as bassist John Entwistle stood silent, the eye of the hurricane. They clashed frequently, but these frictions resulted in a decade's...
