Ok, here it is: Tommy or Quadrophenia

Some of you care, some don't.

I love Tommy as a whole piece, but the songs on Quadrophenia are better written, and sound so great! The production of Tommy has always bugged me because it sounds sloppy.

The Real Me, 5:15, I've Had Enough, and Dr. Jimmy can never be played loud enough.


Your thoughts, if you care to share them?

Purely as a piece of rock music I'd say Quadrophenia and yes its production is far superior, but Tommy was one of the most significant albums of all time, and The Who played it soooooo brilliantly live. Actually that's one of the reasons I love Tommy, cos it can prettymuch all be played on stage if you have a couple guitars, a bass, drums and a french horn.

Tommy.
