Pete Townshend revisited the rock opera concept with another double-album session that was built around the story of a young mod's struggle to come of age in the mid-'60s. Quadrophenia is an excellent and frequently astonishing album.

Although "Quadrophenia" is Pete Townshend's most ambitious and grandiose project, it's also The Who's last truly great album. The band's performance is first-rate though the album does tend to suffer from a bad case of overproduction at times. This is particularly evident on the instrumental interludes "Quadrophenia" and "The Rock." Still, that doesn't detract from the potency of these or any of the other cuts on the album.
Despite its complexity, "Quadrophenia" flows well. The music and the lyrics are strong and the marriage of synthesizers and sound effects help make for a unique and timeless listening experience. Without a doubt, "Quadrophenia" is an innovative concept album that deserves the attention of all Who fans.

Originally released in 1973 - The 17 tracks on this 2-disc set were the very ones that were eventually used in the 1979 film of the same name.

All of these songs were written by guitarist/keyboardist, Peter Townsend. Quadrophenia was the Who's follow-up album to 1971's "Who's Next".
