The Who's Tommy defined the opera rock genre, one that would be improved later on.
This comment is beneath your viewing threshold.
Pinball Wizard apart this album doesn't work for me.
Come opera rock gli ho sempre preferito "Quadrophenia"
I was raised on Quadrophenia, but I mean, come on, it's Tommy.
If you like dad rock, this is for you.
Legendary... Not the best album ever but the one that impacted me the most, it showed me how an album could be more than a collection of songs. The story is easy to follow and the message is clear; my favorite album as I said.
Pete Townsehnd really nailed this one, and the rest of the band showed their skills and their peak.
This album was a revelation when I first heard it and I still find it compelling today. Pet proves he's more than just a rocker right from the get-go by writing a magnificent overture. Interestingly, I find the one big hit, Pinball Wizard, a bit overrated and definitely overplayed.
A journey into Tommy's life. It gives the same sensation as reading a book, you can enter in the story and live it.
The opera-rock label has made this album huge in the past but makes people lift up an eyebrow today.
It was ambitious and stepforward when it came out but to judge it for what it was THEN is just as unfair as judge it from the POV of "hey other people made more coherent rock opera after that" as if all that matters about an album would be some sort of plot.
I like to judge it for the music itself. How it sounds today and how it sounds in the context of what was being made at that time. And I find this to be a hell of a good album.
Who's next and Quadrophenia could arguably be better in performance and sound but here we got superb riffs, a very powerful backsection and Roger Daltrey finally finding his voice as a frontman and singer. A lot of subtle electronica and imaginative use of studio possibilities too (just listen to "amazing journey" for example).
As with any double album there are some fillers, interludes and songs that are not up there with the best ones. Anyway it works very well in one sitting.
Overall an outstanding record.
