5.0 out of 5 stars Superb soundtrack - a must for all Who fans 23 Aug 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The original 1973 Qudrophenia album is my favourite Who album, and is also amongst my top ten albums of all time, so I had put off buying the soundtrack to the film for quite a while, thinking that the songs would be merely shortened versions of those that I already own - big mistake!

Listening to the versions on the soundtrack is like revisiting an old friend - they're still essentially the same, but they're also different. Some changes are subtle, whilst others are more obvious, giving some of the tracks a more polished feel. Some fans may not agree with this, but after listening to the original for so many years, it's really refreshing to hear these 'alternative' versions of some classic songs.

You also get three extra Who tracks - Get Out And Stay Out, Four Faces, and Joker James, as well as tracks by other artists featured in the film.

This album should be in every fan's collection - and at under 4 there is really no excuse not to own it.

Highly recommended!

As a soundtrack to the film it compiles many of the great songs from it - The Who songs as well as some by other artists which are also excellent.

The big problem for me is that they're in a completely ridiculous order, whereas The Who's own Quadrophenia double album follows the story from the beginning to the end, with this we have Love Reign O'er Me and Bell Boy near the start and The Punk And The Godfather near the end which is annoying.

It's a great CD to have in the car as it lasts for over a hour and there's not a bad track on it and with the other artists featured it's got plenty of variety but if someone wants a CD to listen to which covers the story in a meaningful order then they'd be better off buying The Who's double CD instead of this.

Also as stated elsewhere the songs on the double album that aren't on this are better than the new ones recorded by the band for this soundtrack.

4.0 out of 5 stars The order of the songs 15 Sep 2010

This CD is a bargain at [...] secondhand on Amazon.

It includes many brilliant songs at the end of the CD -

16. Night Train - James Brown
17. Louie Louie - The Kingsmen
18. Green Onions - Booker T & The MG's
19. Rhythm Of The Rain - The Cascades

21. Be My Baby - The Ronettes
22. Da Doo Ron Ron - Crystals
23. I'm The Face - The High Numbers

5.0 out of 5 stars Quadrophenia - A Way Of Life 5 Feb 2009
Format:Audio CD
A brilliant album that includes all the songs by The Who and other tracks from the orginal film Quadrophenia. If like me you remember and loved the film then this album is a must. I went on to purchase the Special Edition DVD of the film from Amazon at a very good price. LOVE IT.

3.0 out of 5 stars Original soundtrack 29 July 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you love the film then this will not disappoint! However the track order is annoying in comparision to the Who's album Quadrophenia. If you're a fan of the 'Who' you would be happier owning the latter of the two as i am. There is a difference in the versions of the tracks which can be either annoying or rewarding depending on the listener. Myself i'm a connoisseur of all things 'The Who' so an enjoyable addition to my collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars The High Point of Rock? 4 May 2001
Format:Audio CD
This album was originally issued on vinyl in the autumn of 1973. I was then 16, and bought it the day it hit the shops. I played it right through, twice, that night. I fell in love with it there and then.
Since that time, the reputation of this album has risen and fallen a fair few times.
At its very worst, when you listen to it and your mood is wrong, "Quadrophenia" can sound turgid and lame - 70s rock, stuck in its own groove.
Listen again.
There's power, grace, calm and elegance in here.
Pete Townshend was aiming to write something to unite the rough edges of rock with the higher aims of art. In the 21st century, such an ambition seems almost laughable - mainly because so few people have the talent or the vision to even try. They'd rather loll about in a vapid cloud of "post-modern" irony or "slacker" idleness. The Who in 1973 did not know HOW to be idle.
Listen - hear the way PT combines T.S. Eliot's despairing visions of a world dry and arid for lack of spiritual life, with a pimply youth's callow cries for acceptance and self-knowledge. Hear how THAT seemingly pompous notion is turned into living, breathing music with fire in its belly, blood in its limbs - and angels on its shoulders.
The great beast that was The Who was simply magnificent back then. This is their gift to history. Take it. And be lucky.
