Product Description

Product Description

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

Amazon.ca

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.

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.

Format: Audio CD
In 1973 There was ELP Brain Salad Surgery ........Genesis Selling England By The Pound and Now Whos Quadrophenia....
I am just 21 now and getting acquanted with this music that was made 10 years before i was born.....
Well now this album... I will not talk about the music as all of u already know it .. it just amazing.... and who ever does not like it must be some nut,who likes the current boybands.
What i will talk about is the sound quality of this album ..... it surpasses any remastered cd i have ever heard... every note of any instrument can be cleary distinguished....only cd that can match this sound quality is Tommy...
Well how can i not talk about the music....It starts off with I am the sea.. (A little start off of the Quadrophenia story ) and then comes The real me and all the way to the epic Love, Reign O'er Me is a story of manificence .. i am hearing this cd right now while i am writting it and its kind of loooog to write about each song .... but in short,Quadrophenia is an experiance u will not forget ... and will like to experiance it again and again.... Again Would have loved to in the music world in 1973..

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.
