* LighterAndSofter: Okay, so the identity crisis, emotional turmoil, and social trials aren't exactly "light" per se, but compared to ''{{Tommy}}'' this album has no torture or rape and an overall happy ending.

** This would present a problem with performing the record live. During the original 1973-74 tour, Roger Daltrey would often take time between songs to describe what was going on in the story. For the early dates on the 1996-97 tour, they had Phil Daniels (the actor who played Jimmy in [[Film/{{Quadrophenia}} the film]]) as a live narrator onstage. For the rest of the tour, the narration segments were pre-filmed, with Alex Langdon as Jimmy.
