Also, I would think that b-side/outtake collections would be out, though that is certainly a grey area. Let's allow allmusic to make the decision; if you're not sure, check the site, and if it's under compilations, don't include it.

So in total I've only got about 72 albums to choose from... (not including of course artists/groups where I own more than three) so that takes the fun out a bit, but I'll get on it. Just means some rather average albums may round out my list.

I fucking love Quadrophenia of late. It kicks all kinds of ass. A double album with single album quality and little filler. My only complaint is that by the time you get to the end you've essentially heard LROM about ten times.

Haha well, there are different themes repeating all over the album including "is it me, for a moment?", helpless dancer and of course love reign o'er me. Starting from the very first I Am The Sea with the sound of waves and The Real Me kicking in with a bang to the grand finale of Love, the album is simply flawless! Impeccable! I'm extremely tempted to include it in my Top 5 but it will probably be more like Top 10 or 20 though cos there's too much competition!

Agreed one hundred percent

My first thoughts of the album were positive, because The Real Me is great, and Quadrophenia is an outstanding instrumental. It's absolutely perfect. The Rock, I'm not as hot about, mostly because it is a big rehash and there's not a lot new, but I still like it.

Helpless Dancer's one of my favourites (always skip the KAA inclusion at the end though). The Real Me is the type of song that I'd love to hear go on for 10, 15, 20 minutes it's that awesome. The horns, the running bass, Roger's vocals...

I think it's just 's body shape that irritates me.

Yeah I agree. Quadrophenia > The Rock. The Rock may have a more impressive intro and some kickass drumming but I just love how the LROM theme arrives in Quadrophenia. It's almost like listening to the actual song!

Ooh what is that?? I have no idea what that song is that plays at the end of Helpless Dancer. I like it though. I don't skip it.

edit: Oh it's Kids are Alright! Yeah I know it's a Who essential and everything but I've never heard it.

Agreed! That bass and those vocals are just unfuckingbelievable! Perfect start to the album to keep one's attention throughout!

Well, my initial list is 72 albums. That's not too bad, not too much to chop out.

I picked my top 50 albums, all I have to do now is rank them, Which I find incredibly hard; top 10 is relatively easy but how can I tell which album I like just a tiny bit more than the other? Arrgh.

Quadrophenia is firmly entrenched in my top 10. It is The Who's finest hour.

This is awesome I think in the past we used to disagree on 99per cent of things...

I also ADORE The Punk and The Godfather, for it's guitar and Townshend's verse at the end, and also 5:15, which has a bit of a manic-bowie-piano feel about it.

I'm starting to come around to this opinion as well. Who's Next is superb, but Quadrophenia is sustained brilliance for what, like 80 minutes or so? I think it's a few of the individual songs on WN which make it so fantabulous. Baba O'Riley man...

My mate still thinks Limp Bizkit's atrocious synth fucking garbage shit cover of Behind Blue Eyes is better than the original.

Mostly U2 and Bomb related. But now I think we pretty much both agree that it was good but not great.

Oh god! First of all, how can one not like the beautiful original version??? And second, how could he like the Limp Bizkit version and that too better??

Spot on! I was perhaps one of its staunchest defenders; now, "good but not great" probably suits it perfectly.

Exactly. The first version is superb, from the quiet acoustic, to the rollicking conclusion, and secondly... I can't even go into it. The Bizkit version is beyond bad, and it had a woeful video as well.

Stick to the fucks et al that you know best, Fred...
