I prefer this album over Who's Next and Tommy. Excellent album and a more consistent and varied album to their previous rock opera.

Everything here - the singing, the drums, the bass, the guitar, the lyrics, and the music itself can easily contend with anything written in popular music, ever. This album is absurdly underrated, and the fact that it is only 120th overall on this site is a rather large grass stain on the metaphorical blue jean that this site is.

First two listens were hard but persevered and found some worth in it - best tracks Love Reign Over Me and title track. It's not quite my cup of tea but better than what I first thought having only listened to it for the first time in 2017

Con "Quadrophenia" Pete Townshend chiude il cerchio sull'epopea mod iniziato con "My generation". E' la sua seconda opera rock dopo "Tommy", che è più famosa e più calata nel suo tempo ma a cui io ho sempre preferito proprio "Quadrophenia": a parità di grandi canzoni contenute, questa nuova opera rock ha un suono più potente e mette maggiormente in risalto le qualità tecniche dei quattro. E' praticamente un "Tommy" suonato come un "Who's next"; ed è l'ultimo grande disco degli Who…

Amzing double album, almost as good as Tommy and Who´s Next, and for a time my favorite album from The Who.
