Description: Tommy, The Who's hugely successful rock-opera started it all. Quadrophenia was the 1973 follow-up, a disillusioned flashback to the early 60s, when mods engaged in pitched battles with rockers on the Brighton seafront.

Best Narrative Concept Albums (14 music items)

"Most people would go with "Tommy," and yeah, Tommy's good and the story is a little more evident, but it really falls apart after "Sally Simpson." Quadrophenia stays strong the whole way through. It's about Jimmy. At the start, Jimmy has some mental problems and they don't get better from there. He becomes disillusioned with the bands he loves, he becomes disillusioned with his Mod lifestyle, he's sexually frustrated, he gets heavy with drugs and he's having breakdown after breakdown. It's a sto"

"Tommy seemed to me an album of pop but Quadrophenia was something else. Somewhat flawed but otherwise brilliant. Simply works."

RS 500: Part 3 (100 music items)

""The album that brought back Vespascooters, parkas and uppers: Pete Townshend drew on the Who's roots in the London mod scene of the early Sixties and composed this expansive, messy rock opera about a lonely teenage boy looking for love in the city. It gets even better when you check out the movie.""
