What can you say?.....it's 'Quadrophenia"-The Who, it's got great number's by Cross Section & The High Numbers, The Who of course, from a concept idea, hence a timeless film that along with The Jam, The New Hearts, The Exits, helped to spearhead and influence, inspire the nouveau Mod revival by 1979, from the remnant's of New Wave Power Pop, with The O' Levels/The Odds & Edward Ball, The Nips, The Rivals, The Jags, it was a new modern world, Paul Weller was a defining face, along with Jack And The Plugs (The Purple Hearts), The Killer Meterz (Killermetres), The Split Screens, but of course 'Quadrophenia" can't be underestimated, there are many misguided & modern misconceived trivial idea's that are completely wrong and miss the point, what people don't often spot is that the film is about also importatly what in 1964 was not talked about, it was misunderstood, a stigma, so hence not treated, or with any safeguard's in place, Jimmy Cooper, Mod, has a split personality disorder, thus a mental illness that is hindered by drugs, respect and credit to Pete Townsend & The Who for being brave enough to conceive and portray something not often shown or highlighted, also a classic Mod story with this classic soundtrack.

OK, its a back catalogue purchase for a classic album of my youth, when in '79 there was a minor mod come-back. This is one of those albums you had back then on vinyl along with Meatloaf's Bat out of Hell et al. Good for the average 'The Who' fan and anyone that likes a bit of the old stuff thrown in. At the price, it was a must to add to my eclectic list of 70s and 80s albums.

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!

The film soundtrack gives a different feel to the original album with lots of extra tracks from the film that capture and enrich the storyline. Tommy has some great songs but Quadrophenia like nothing else hits teenage angst, frustration and isolation with the best Rock soundtrack who Who every did. Genius and another example showing how the money machine has turned today's music into soggy popcorn.

Just lie back, close your eyes and relive the film in your mind's eye, excellent. A fine selection of Who tracks complimented with a few special tracks from the film by other artists. Picture Jimmy (Phil Daniels) and Steph (Lesley Ash) and the rest of the Quadrophenia crew enjoying being mods, it'll bring a smile to your face, guaranteed.

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!

Having seen the film recently on dvd I thought it would be good to get the original sound track. Some good Who numbers and a couple of
other numbers from different artists. It will be good to play it independently of the film.
