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.

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.

I first heard this album in my teens in the 70's. I had it on 8-Track tape (!) I played it so much the tape snapped, then I got the vinyl. Now I have the remastered CD. Some say the vinyl is better, but I hear things in this remastered CD that just bring it back to life for me. Highly recommended. If you are young and starting out on bass, get this! (and Live at Leeds, Who's Next.) You'll get flung out of bands for playing like this, but what evil fun!

This is The Who's second brilliant rock opera. Naysayers beware. My favourite cuts are: The Real Me, Sea and Sand, 5:15, and Doctor Jimmy. My one complaint is that the album is on two cds which rather breaks the continuity a bit between the first and second disc. I'm very pleased to own a playable copy again.

It is a great album, in great shape and was delivered promptly. Only complaint is seller needs to get a life; to email me to complain that I did not give a written report on his/her exceptional service is over the top. I have never in my life had to pat someone on the back for selling me anything let alone an album.

Album qui demande une écoute tranquille, tu dois prendre le temps. Cet album est un bijoux de production musicale. L'histoire est magnifique et surtout ne pas confondre avec la trame sonore du film. Les cors, le piano sont splendide. Je vous conseille cette production musicale. The Who, the best .......

I am a huge fan of progressive rock and darn proud of it. As such, I studiously avoid the blues, and "straight" rock with the all-too-familiar 4/4 rhythm, primitive melodic and harmonic structures, and of course goofy lyrics that mythologize "drugs, sex, and rock n' roll". I used to think (without basis I might add) that The Who was a band that produced such drivel until I listened to the brilliant Quadrophenia. Of course, the music on Quadrophenia is, in comparison to the thematically similar The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway (Genesis, 1974) pretty tame, it is also extremely sophisticated for a hard rock band. Even the treatment of "drugs, sex, and rock n' roll" is handled carefully and with great intelligence, resulting in a concept work that is "deep", multidimensional, and ever engrossing. In fact, I think I might like Quadrophenia more than The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway! On Quadrophenia, Townshend demonstrates his ability to embellish very simple and brief musical themes with instrumental preludes, interludes and postludes, all of which create the impression of something much larger and complex. In addition, highly melodic vocal, guitar, and synthesizer parts weave and soar above a positively thundering rhythm section to create some of the most interesting hard rock music I have ever heard. (Oh by the way, John Entwistle is a ripping bass player and Keith Moon is right up there with some of the best progressive rock drummers!). In spite of the fact that I was only 5 years old when Quadrophenia was released, I am wistful for times when a piece of rock music this involved and emotionally rich could reach number 2 on both sides of the Atlantic. Highly recommended in addition to Who's Next.
