I'd have to go with Quadrophenia.
Though the Tommy segment of this year's tour (Sparks/Amazing Journey/Pinball Wizard/See Me Feel Me) was the highlight of the show.

If I had to pick, it would be Tommy. I love Quadrophenia, but Tommy is a masterpiece, "The Overture" "Christmas" "The Underture" "I'm Free"... So many fantastic songs. Yes, the production sucks but... Just a side note, I saw the Who recently, and they did a Tommy Medley as the encore... "Sparks was UNBELIEVABLE!!!!! It has to be the greatest performance I've ever seen... WOO HOO!!!!! This thread is going to put me back on a major Who kick!!!

Quadrophenia is one of those albums that you listen to the whole way through. Tommy has some fillers....I just can't listen to the whole thing together.

Ancient thread it most certainly is!!!

I like Quadrophenia a lot even though there are a few songs on there I'm not crazy about. I don't know anything about Tommy except for hits like Pinball Wizard. So don't think I can vote here.

I love Quadrophenia. Better songs, more interesting concept. Oh, and did you know Sting was in the movie? (sorry martha )

I agree. (even though I haven't listened to either since before U2democrat was born )

I'm not a fan of Tommy. The songs on Quadrophenia seem relevant while many of those on Tommy sound too popish to me.
