"Grindhouse" - "Sell Out" connection?

Interesting paragraph from the Boston Globe's review of the new Tarantino/Rodriguez movie "Grindhouse:"

By this point, all the campy '70s touches have fallen away, and Tarantino's just grooving on speed and on the sight of women in charge (all three actresses are just wonderful). If "Grindhouse" has any precedent, it may be the 1967 concept album "The Who Sell Out ," which Pete Townshend sequenced like an actual AM radio station, with pimple-cream ads wedged between the Who songs. Like the album, "Grindhouse" loses interest in its own concept toward the end and simply lets the creative juices flow. That's not a bad thing.
