Only as a noteworthy time/place marker. Your Patty can actually sing, and very well.

Quadrophenia is the best album of all time.

Okay, that's clearly hyperbole, but Wow. I just never get tired of it. John Entwistle and Keith Moon at their very best, and Roger ain't bad either. I've always enjoyed Pete's writing more than his playing or singing. Masterpiece.

Speaking of hyperbole, I received a free subscription to Rolling Stone when I became a member of the Experience Music Project. The issue I received yesterday struck me as pretty funny. It doesn't seem to be posted, yet, but the cover was all ablaze with "the musical event of the year! Dark Side of the Moon Reissue!" or some such.

Now, RS isn't exactly the BBC when it comes to editorial restraint, but I found it wildly amusing that the "musical event of the year" is the latest in a long line of incremental improvements to a 38 year old album already widely considered to be sonically stunning.

I always preferred Animals, myself.

The Ting Tings - "Hang It Up"

New song from The Ting Tings. Fun.

Good enough to get this version? Seriously, though, which of the reasonably-priced releases is the one to get?

I had no idea Quadrophenia was that large. I've got Tommy, and that's a bit of a slog through parts... I'll have to check out Quadrophenia at some point.

When we had our mini-GTG, Tom was pretty upset I didn't have Quadrophenia. He took my beer, poured it on my carpet, and said, "That will be enough. Good day, sir!" and stormed off in a huff.

Wow.

Tom's behavior was unusual. The beer must have been some watery light swill.

Normally, he does that routine just to get a beer.

That was fun, but who's playing those TWO guitars while she's fondling her hair?

+1 on the excellence of Quadrophenia. I like it much better than Tommy, which is saying something. Quadrophenia stands up to repeated listening very well. John Entwhistle is just amazing. A pioneer of melodic rock bass.

I've never gotten that much into Animals; was always partial to The Wall. An album that changed my life.
