90. The Who - The Who Sell Out
Release Date: 1967
The Who Sell Out was the third studio album from the My Generation Hitmakers, and the second of their offerings in this book - 'A Quick One' being deemed unimportant. I vaguely remember being slightly underwhelmed by their debut album and was hoping for something better this time. Luckily, that's exactly what I got (on the first half of the album anyway). Moving away from their RnB roots, the album contains well-written songs, cleverly interspersed with cod-radio jingles. Unfortunately they see to run out of steam towards the end of the album.
There's a book you may or may not have heard of called '1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die'. Here is my attempt to do just that. Follow my progress from Frank Sinatra to Arcade Fire as I write my thoughts and feelings about each album.
