The Who: Four-Way Pete

Charles Shaar Murray, New Musical Express, 27 October 1973

TOWNSHEND'S Quadrophenia is a rather daunting proposition. Another Who double-album rock opera? About a kid called Jimmy? With a massive booklet of grainy monochrome tableaux stapled into the sleeve? With titles like 'The Real Me', 'I Am The Sea', Love Reign O'er Me' and 'I'm One'?
