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

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.

A masterful job of remastering this classic album for 5.1 surround. Don't hesitate, just get it. The sonics and attention to detail by the engineers is incredible. From the opening waves from the seashore to the thundering Pete Townsend guitars and Daltrey's intriguing and haunting vocals, you will once again be immersed in this classic album. Highly recommended.

The best Who Album? Maybe. I love it. Always have, always will. This Blu Ray reproduction is sonically wonderful compared to the CD. From crashing waves to piano keys to machine-gun drumming to Daltrey's voice its all good.
For those who don't like thematic albums or Rock Operas, who cares what you think. Don't buy this, get some KC and the Sunshine band.

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.

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.

This sounds amazing. Love the surround mix. You can really appreciate the recording (41 years ago!) and remastering of this album. Picked it up for about $20!! In a perfect world all such classics would be available in this format.

I am posting the review of the product that is listed as Live in London (Blu-ray Audio) but is, in fact, the original 1973 recording of Quadrophenia in Blu-ray Audio. (The cover shown is the correct one.) So, if you want the original Quadrophenia in Blu-ray Audio, this is it. This disc also has the original stereo mix.

I've only listened once to the 5.1 mix and it's excellent. It's not "over-heated," if that makes sense - the sound is spacious and immediate. The audio is accompanied by stills.

As for Quadrophenia itself, for me it's the album where you hear everything that is best about The Who. Melodic and hard-driving. It tells a compelling story through some of the best Townshend pieces ever - like Bell Boy, Sea and Sand, 5:15, etc.
