The Who - Tommy
I usually have a hard time casually listening to the post British Invasion era Who. During the rare occasion that I'm in that zone where I can appreciate it. The mid career Who releases like Tommy are incredibly awesome. There's a bunch of great songs on Tommy and the production is so much better than their previous release. This is the first album where Roger Daltry really takes over and finds his place as lead singer. Side 2 is really strong and easy to enjoy without giving any thought to the "opera". I know it's hard for people to digest this 75 minute opera sandwich.
