RORY: Well, what’d you hear?

LANE: Quadrophenia.

RORY: Classy, but not date-like.

Quadrophenia, the sixth studio album by English rock band The Who, released as double album in 1973. It is the group’s third rock opera, the two previous being A Quick One, While He’s Away and Tommy. Set in London and Brighton in 1965, the story follows a young mod named Jimmy and his search for self-worth and importance.

The album went to #2 in both the UK and US, and has received critical acclaim. It had a strong influence on the mod revival of the 1970s.
