For reasons that remain somewhat ill defined, the concept wasn't quite driven to completion, breaking down around the middle of side two (on the original vinyl configuration). Nonetheless, on strictly musical merits, it's a terrific set of songs that ultimately stands as one of the group's greatest achievements.

They never made anything more entertaining or endearing.

The Who are one multitalented bunch. With The Who Sell Out, the band proves that when they set out to make a concept album that they will make one of the greatest ones of all time. So off-the-rails bizzare, loud, and mesmerizing, this record stands as the high point in the band’s creativity and wit.
