It's Hard album for sale Product Description

It's Hard album for sale by Who was released Nov 01, 2006 on the Universal label. Who fans tend to dismiss the two studio albums that the group made with former Small Faces drummer Kenny Jones after original drummer Keith Moon's death in 1978, but both FACE DANCES and IT'S HARD are solid rock albums that deserve to be judged on their respective merits. Recorded in 1982, IT'S HARD was the Who's final studio album and it is arguably the least rock-oriented album that The Who made. It's Hard CD music contains a single disc.   ...See Full Description

No Keith Moon,
Most people seem to focuson the fact that Keith did not play on this album, (or Face Dances). Don't. This is a fine album, well worth purchasing.

The Who forever!
The Who's final studio album for 24 years is a highly ambitious collection of songs featuring synthesizers, horns, long-winded song structures, and so on; while it isn't a bad album by any means, it takes many spins to hook into (moreso than even the band's 1969 masterpiece "Tommy"). Nevertheless, songs such as the hits "Athena and "Eminence Front" still showcase what makes the Who one of rock's most accomplished bands.

Up Here On The Precipice....
The two Who studio albums of the early eighties have been painfully underrated. "It's Hard" was a much stronger... and an improvement... over "Face Dances" "FD" simply suffered from weak material and subpar performance, but that was understandable considering the band was recovering from Keith Moon's loss and the indoctrination of Kenny Jones. The group seem rejuvenated somewhat on "It's Hard" as it contained more potent material and more thought-provoking lyrics. The instrumentation was formidable, but one also gets the uncomfortable feeling that the band was seriously fraying at the edges when probing tracks such as "It's Your Turn", "Why Did I Fall For That" and "Cry If You Want" I would recommend this album over "Face Dances" for those who want to sample the brief Kenny Jones era, but check out the Moon-era records first.

Not too hard to like
Long time Who fans tend to regard "It's Hard" and "Face Dances" as lousy albums but I don't know that they've actually completely listened to them?.7 of the 12 studio tracks from "FD" and 9 of the 12 studio tracks on "IH" were considered worthy of joining my collection of Who songs on my iPod and I'm pretty discriminatory. I love The Who but do find that almost every one of their albums has a few songs that are a bit difficult to enjoy. I would consider purchasing either of these CDs before the 2006 release, Endlesswire. I would actually give them each 3.5 stars as 3 is too low, but 4 is a bit too high when comparing them to the classic albums. .

The final album from the Who is a really good album also, but for me, this is probably the least enjoyable of all of the Who's albums. Eminence Front is a fantastic song and I'm pretty sure that it's my favorite song on this album. I recommend this album for Who fans but for those who are just starting to be interested in the Who, listen to the Keith Moon albums first.
