The Power and The Glory
Broadway and Hollywood have embraced "Tommy", but if you really want a so-called rock opera from The Who then this record is the essential document. Instead of depending on the artifice of a deaf, dumb, and blind kid who plays pinball (didja ever meet one?) Mr. Townsend concentrates his considerable narrative power on a confused lad by the name of Jimmy, who is on the cusp of adulthood and isn't sure he likes the position. For those of us (like me) who bought this record in high school it seemed to speak directly to our confusion and apathy and rage, and Pete's observations about the horror of late adolesence are as timeless as they are tuneful. The hypocrisy of adults, the banality of the coolios, the clay feet of the trend-setters, all and more are fair game for his poison, poignant pen. And the really great news is that The Who rock like never before or since. After the white noise and orchestral meanderings of "I Am the Sea" lull you into a dreamy contemplation, "The Real Me" pounds into your skull, John Entwhistle"s bass lines taking the main instrumental role as Jimmy laments his mental state to his doctor and mother. And the confessional is non-stop, the horror of lousy jobs ("Bellboy") the thrill of drugs and partying ("5:15" and "Dr. Jimmy") the confusion of relationships ("Sea and Sand") and the possible redemption of love in the album's swan song, "Love, Reign O'er Me". Although it is well-documented that Roger Daltrey was unhappy about his performances and the final mix, I find his concerns to be completely baseless. Unlike "Who's Next", where his vocal confidence almost overwhelms the material, "Quadrophenia" shows Roger to be able to communicate a sense of loss and vulnerability that is totally appropriate to the material, if not to furthering his status as an arena-rock demigod. And underscoring all this magic is of course Keith Moon, you can almost hear his sticks splintering as he pounds his kit into submission. Throw in the finest guitar work that Mr. Townsend ever produced, eschewing the standard crunch for an alternately jagged and melodic approach, and the surprising versatiity of John Entwhistle's bass and brass work, and you get an ensemble aesthetic that has never been topped before or since. Unfortunately for The Who, the only direction from this remarkable summit was down, this was the be-all, end-all statement that started back in '65 with "My Generation" and finished with the massive pick-slide and power chord that ended this amazing record. You might not die before you get old, but you can buy this record and remember how it felt to be young.....JJ

This cd would be in my top 100 somewhere around 10. England has given us so many genious musicians and bands that have become legends and icons. The Who - Quadrophenia is a masterpiece of classic, hard, timeless rock and roll!!! Music for the ages. Absolutely the best Who albumn. ROCK ON

A Masterpiece
Some nights I used to look out on New York Harbor as a kid and here voices and music. It always seemed that there was some kind of carnival going on. I can remember a searching,longing call across the harbor. It seemed like the carnival crew were trying to get together. Pete said he heard glorious music on the other side of the pond and did his best to recreate it. I believe him. Quadraphenia is a reflection of Pete's experiences as a young lad.The lyrics and music express the frustration and reality of growing up."Is it in My Head?","The Dirty Jobs", "Drowned", and "Helpless Dancer" are self explained. Keith Moon lets us know how he feels in "Bell Boy". Roger asserts that "The beach is a place where a man can feel where the only soul in the world is real". Buy this CD to hear Keith's response. His vocals here need to be heard. Throughout this masterpiece Pete uses his guitar, synthesizer, and banjo. John smoothly plays bass and horns to help create the carnival sound. And,oh yeah, remember, this is where The Punk Meets the Godfather! Enjoy the Overture(Quadraphenia} and Dr. Jimmy. Remember and respect your roots! I can still here the music. "Is it me for a moment?"
