    I'm so happy I found this on vinyl. I only wish it had the booklet included

    My favorite Who album. One killer song after another, culminating in the stunning "Love, Reign O'er Me." Rock rarely gets better than this.

    For several years after I became a Who fan I didn't give this album the credit that it deserves and after becoming familiar with it played it only rarely, opting instead for Who's Next, The Who Sell Out, Tommy, Live at Leeds, etc. Something brought me back, though, and I now recognize it as perhaps The Who's greatest achievement and one of the 5 or 10 best albums of the 70s. Just a beautifully written, wonderfully played, emotionally resonant masterpiece. This record and the aforementioned other classics in their repertoire (along with the awesome singles from Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy) are evidence of the group's superiority to The Rolling Stones and Beatles. In particular neither of those bands could've pulled off Quadrophenia.

    After giving this a lot of thought (and plays) and seeing the brilliant movie, I've come to the realization that this is my favorite Who album. Also, I got the vinyl for a bargain (the best I ever had).

    Can't understand that Who's next have most plays, wouldn't trade a cargo full of Who's Next vs a single track from Quadrophenia.

    The Who's best album by far.
