Quadrophenia by The Who

My review of Quadrophenia is the sixth studio album by the English rock band The Who, released on 26 October 1973 by Track Records. It is a double album and the group’s second rock opera after Tommy. This album was entirely composed by guitarist Pete Townsend. There are many great cuts on this album such as The Real Me, Bell Boy, 5:15 and my two favorite cuts, The Rock which contains all the themes in the album and Love Reign O’er Me which later was redone by Pearl Jam (My wife’s favorite version of this song).  This album did not have the success of Tommy but it is definitely one that I recommend adding to anyone’s record library.
