I agree, Jones never grabbed me, nor those two albums. That said I saw them in 88 and on the Quadrophenia tour and they kicked much arse.
If the Who were a baseball player they would be the Dale Murphy type, shows up, impresses, burns brighter then the sun for a time and then fades to something that resembles neither of the two prior stages.
Any band would take Tommy-Quadrophenia-Who's Next as a career and walked away with a big grin.
Oh BTW I listened to the first 3 tracks of the new disc (it's on right now) and it wasn't bad... the first song (Fragments) cops some older licks from Won't Get Fooled Again in the opener, I also hear a little of "Music Must Change"
