Some great songs on this, very good value but there's a but....,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Quadrophenia (Audio CD)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.
