There comes a time when artists of a certain stature decide that their muse can no longer be restrained by the confines of a mere rock song and must spread its wings across an extended narrative. This is a delusion that cannot be dealt with firmly enough. Since the Who birthed the idea on 1969's sprawling Tommy, it has spawned numerous incomprehensible mish-mashes of half-baked science fiction, heavy-handed metaphors and Rizla philosophy.
