Keith Moon.....KEITH MOON Madotsuki
This song has to be one of the most fun songs I've ever bought for DLC and definitely is one of the funnest Who songs.
That being said, I'll try to be unbiased.
Like most Keith Moon songs, you will be flying across the drum kit, performing rolls across toms, beating cymbals to shreds, and hitting a large number of consistent kick drum notes that pull you along throughout the song. However, one of the best things about this song is that although it is all over the place, its surprisingly smooth and easy to play, making it (as I said), one of the most enjoyable drum tracks. The rolls are fast, yet not too fast to hit, the fills travel across the drum kit, yet are quite simple, and the consistent kicks constantly keep you in time. Sea and Sand is also very diverse so you will likely not get bored of playing any part of the song.
If you like this song, I would recommend it on high priority.
If you like The Who, this is one of the most funnest and enjoyable tracks in the pack, so you should definitely buy it.
If you mainly play drums, this is a MUST HAVE for any drummer, as it is one the most smooth-yet-complicated drum songs.

A Rare Non-Live Jam on Bass Karmeleaux
This is probably my favorite Who song we have so I might be a bit biased, but I'll try being neutral. But it's hard to tell, because many of Entwistle's bass parts are fantastic for the game, and I feel this is one of them.

The verse is focused around sustains, but there's scales before them and enough variation in them to make it outright unengaging.

From there, the chorus is built around a G R R~~ rhythm, with every forth iteration being various scales instead, which is a real blast to me.

There's also a section with longer sustains in there, but it's over after a few and leads into another chorus, which turns into a sort of jam by the end. This section is a real blast on bass and part of the reason I've confident to give it five-stars.

Another reason is during the (incredibly long) outro solo, the chorus rhythm loses all definition as Entwistle jams long and hard. There's all sorts of different movement and strum patterns in the end (though you should be able to upstrum!), and it's a riot to me.

As I said, I'm hesistant to give this a five-star due to the verses, but I think the other sections are strong enough to make up for any hesistation bassists might feel during it.
