Quadrophenia, released in 1973, was The Who's sixth studio album and second rock opera. The title is a play on schizophrenia (implying multiple personalities) and quadraphonic, the newest innovation in sound at the time that provided four separate tracks of audio coming at the listener. Pete Townshend took these ideas and wrote the story of Jimmy, a Mod boy in 1965 with four different personalities (each based on one of the four members of The Who). He presented the story as a long-form work with four distinct themes that would be interwoven throughout. Townshend proudly feels that Quadrophenia is the best work he ever produced.
