First Impression: It started out great... kinda lost me in the middle there the album is a bit too long I think. Maybe it grows on repeated listens? But there were definitely highlights every now and then including ...Shaky Hand, ...Miles and Sunrise. Loved all the ads and the Radio London bits though! I think many of the actual songs haven't made a big impression on me yet.

The album has only 13 songs, and it's about 37 minutes long...I don't know how you could think that's too long. The other 10 are bonus tracks.

Well, clearly I didn't know that track 14 to track 23 was bonus! No wonder I felt it was too long!

There are some good moments scattered among those bonus tracks but, really, it's the first 13 you should focus on. The album had to grow on me as well, and now I think it's their best studio album. It's catchy, fun, and quite addicting.

It's definitely a great record, but it doesn't surpass Who's Next.

I'm not a big Who's Next guy. The great songs are amazing (Baba, Love Ain't For Keeping, Won't Get Fooled Again, The Song Is Over), but I just can't get into Getting In Tune, Going Mobile, and My Wife. Quadrophenia is a notch better overall, and certainly more coherent.

Getting In Tune is one of my favourites.

On the second listen now. Yeah I really think they should do a better job of labeling the bonus tracks so they stand out from the album proper. Otherwise, first time listeners like myself could easily get turned away by the length, not knowing about the bonus section. Of course, I would always give the album a second chance but others may not, you know? The exact same thing happened to me with Gary Numan's Pleasure Principle where I thought it was too long, and it turned out that half the tracks I was listening to was bonus!

Yeah, to say I disagree with this would be a huge understatement, so I'll leave it at that.

And I agree with Phanan.

It's not that I hate the album or anything, it's just 3rd instead of undisputed 1st. An "A-" instead of an "A+++++++++++++++".

Quadrophenia fucks shit up, I agree.

I'd say that and Who's Next are about tied for me.
