    You Can't Have Everything

    The Who have so many great songs. Everyone of them here is a winner. Sure this collection is missing some masterpieces. But track for track, this rocks...

    Another opportunistic record company ripoff

    Let's find 10 of the most popular and widely recognized songs by "choose an artist", stick 'em on an album, and call it yet another "Best of" collection. While I completely understand the difficulty--perhaps the impossibility--of capturing the essential Who (or any other major artist) in ten songs, I despise the corporate profiteering and hypocrisy that underlies this "Millennium Collection" venture. Also, a mere 40 minutes of music on a CD? Why not put it on vinyl for that "millenium" feel? Of course, with 10 songs at a time, you can do, what, "Best of" Volumes 2, 3, 4, 5,....?

    i completely agree with 'nick'

    i love the who, and i was just looking around for more good albums and i found 'the ultimate collection' its 2 very long disks for like 20 bucks and i would seriously advise buying that over this. most of the songs on here are on that album and this album left a lot out. personally my alltime favorite who album was 'tommy', so i completely reccomend that too. but if you havent tried the who, i really just dont have any clue how the hell you are allive. i gave this album 3 stars because it does have good songs, but i really wouldnt give it more than 3, more like 2 or 3. o well..

    WTF!?! WHERE'S BABA O'REILY!?!?!?!

    First off, I love the Who. If you do too, there's probably no reason to get this cause you already have these songs. If you're looking for a good place to start, look elsewhere. Don't get me wrong, all these songs are essential, but it's what they left off. Most noticeably Baba O'Reily (aka Teenage Wasteland to those of you very new to The Who). The monumental Quadrophenia album also gets the shaft in this poorly developed quick fix for cash. It's obvious this album was just put out by the record company to make a buck, which might be okay. After all, the Who did release an album called "The Who Sell Out," but they did such a sloppy job on the music, you should really invest in a better greatest hits collection, or just buy the albums. I gave this 2 stars because I couldn't bring myself to give the who 1 star. ONCE AGAIN, THIS IS NOT A KNOCK ON THE WHO!!!THEY ARE ONE OF THE GREATEST ROCK BANDS EVER!!!!! This is the fault of the record company for putting together such a piss-poor collection.
