The Who: I Can See For Miles (1967) – Song Review
So when I first got in to music, the only real historically relevant music that I know about that was more then just a passing understanding, was the music of the 1980s through the early 2000s, and I have to say that, the music from this time was great, but severely limiting!
What I mean by this is that, well… It is true there is a lot of amazing music that has come out in the last 30 years… Metallica, Michael Jackson, and so much more! But when you look at their influences and the influences of some of these famous groups, and all of the rest out there, you begin to see a beautiful history of music that have been around for decade after decade!
Some great stuff like, ‘The Beatles’, ‘The Rolling Stones’, ‘The Who’ and so much more!
And speaking about, ‘The Who’… I just recently got in to their music, and I have to say that this song I am reviewing for them are pretty good! that song being, ‘I Can See For Miles’ from the, ‘B’ side of their 1967 album, ‘Someone’s Comming ‘!
Written by: Pete Townshend and produced by Kit Lambert… This is an interesting Psychedelic sound that was made really popular during the counter culture, drug based era of the 1960s… But well, this song is good… The problem is, is it is nothing exceptional… There is nothing exceptional to it… It’s tones and its melodies I found to be fun, but nothing exceptional…
So if you are looking for something exceptional, you are probably not going to find it, but if you are looking for something fun to listen to for background noise, this is definitely a good one for that!
