Product Description

Product Description

The Who's other rock opera, completely remixed and remastered under the supervision of Pete Townshend.

An excellent and frequently astonishing album, Quadrophenia is both more ambitious and less accessible than Tommy, the first and most well known rock opera. At its simplest level, Quadrophenia is a coming-of-age story with an awesome soundtrack. The album features some of the Who's finest material, in songs like the enraged "Real Me," the cynical "Punk Meets the Godfather," the wistful "5:15" and "Sea and Sand," and the powerful "Love, Reign O'er Me." The songwriting (courtesy of Pete Townshend) is top-notch, as is the production (the Who actually managed to use synthesizers in an original manner, something few rock bands can aspire to). The mix of powerful songwriting and skillful composition makes this one of the Who's finest moments. --Genevieve Williams

Format: Blu-ray Audio
I received my copy about three weeks ago from .uk and this is a wonderful 5.1 Blu ray. I was a little cheesed about there only being an 8 track 5.1 disc in the box set but at least it's this version is at a fair price. The mix is Awsome. Better then the 5.1 of Tommy that came out (I still can't figure out on Tommy why the drums come out of the left rear speaker). Where that was good this (in my opinion) is one of the best 5.1's out there. There is also a stunning transfer of the original two track master.
This is a record I find people either love it or hate it. I feel it's one of the great two LP sets of all time. There is no filler on this album. All four members play great. It's just a stunning album.
The 5.1 Blu ray is cheaper then the CD set and as I pointed out it has a stereo mix so you do not need a surround sound system and for twenty dollars you get the whole double album on one disc.
One more thing they used the original two track as a guide so the mix is very close to the original.
What else can I say "Just Buy It"

First i would like to thank Pete Townsend, Roger Daltery, John Enwhistle and Keith Moon for creating this MASTERPIECE. This blu ray pure audio 5.1 surround sound remix is the only way to hear this great recording. Pete himself has said that if he had the ability to record Quadrophenia in 5.1 back in 1973 he would have. There is no real words to describe how good this is. You have listen to it yourself. But in 5.1 surround. It's the only way you can appreciate how good this really is.i've listened to it twice now and it blows me away on how amazing is sounds. This is a must own. I just wish they could do the same with Who's Next.

If you can play SACD and are a real fan of The Who, get this SHM-SACD version.

Compared to the MCAD-6895 redbook version, the SACD version seems:

1. to be recorded at a slightly lower overall level

2. but it seems to be have more dynamic range (the redbook CD seems to be more flat overall)

3. detailed - Keith Moon's drumming is super sharp. You get the sense of the space for the different drums in the kit whereas the redbook version seems to be more indistinct and hazy. The cymbals on the
newer version also seem more clear and decay more cleanly as well.

4. John Entwhistle's bass notes are more distinct and clean.

This version seems to extract the most that you can get out of a rock recording from 1973. The band comes
alive in this one.

Format: Audio CD
There seems to be a major resurgence of interest in 1970s music as today's 15-25 year olds rediscover music from that decade. I grew up in the 70s and my friends' teenaged sons are now frequently asking me about 70s bands and looking for lesser known bands and albums from that era.

The Who can hardly be classified as a "lesser known band" but I've discovered that many of the young guys asking me about 70s music have never heard of this album. So to help rectify that situation.......

This is one of the essential albums that should be in any respectable collection of 1970s music. Like The Who's Tommy, released a few years before Quadrophenia, it's a rock opera with the entire album devoted to a story. In this case the story is about growing up in England during the 1960s.

The Who were superb musicians and this album is one of their best. Pete Townshend, the guitarist and composer, was one of the most influential guitar players and songwriters of the era. Roger Daltrey is considered one of the most distinctive rock vocalists. The drummer, Keith Moon, is still considered one of rock's best drummers. Sadly, Moon died of alcohol poisoning in 1977. Bassist John Entwhistle was/is one of the most highly regarded bass players in rock music. Entwhistle died of a heart attack in Las Vegas while The Who was touring the USA. Quadrophenia is considered a showcase of Entwhistle's talent. If you're a bass player, you should have this album.

To sum up, this is great album. If you're discovering/re-discovering 1970s music, this one should be in your music collection.

Any just discovering The Who should also check out Who's Next, which was released a few years before Quadrophenia.

Ever play the desert island game?
...If you were stranded on a desert island with just 10 music CDs, which selections would make the final cut? Never mind the fact that you have no electricity on this imaginary desert island and batteries would last just days. It's a thought game.
Anyway, for me, two Who CDs made that top 10 CD cut - "Who's Next" and "Quadrophenia."
It's tough to review Quadrophenia, using today's jaded "cookie cutter" music industry standards. One grumpy Quadrophenia reviewer panned 70s era "rock opera" music in general (20/20 hindsight) but Quadrophenia was [is still] certainly groundbreaking when it was released. To date, I've heard nothing like it and few established bands/singer-songwriters are willing to take this sort of musical risk - not in an era where a performer's first CD needs to be highly successful in order to PASS GO AND COLLECT $200. Another words, today's record execs wouldn't have put any stock in, say, singer-songwriters like Bruce Springsteen only because HIS first two albums were flat. Can you imagine passing on that talent? That would happen in today's environment. It's no secret that musical experimentation and risks are discouraged.
Another thing: Quadrophenia was released in an interesting time in our history. Most of us were still experiencing the malaise of the post 60s and the U.S. government, under Nixon and the Watergate scandal, was just pissing us off. Lots of unrest, discouragement, disappointment and impatience. (Sound familiar?)
In general, music at this time was becoming very suspect. Even legendary music critic Lester Bangs loathed this period in music.
