4 stars If I'm not mistaken this is the very first rock opera and that in itself makes this album an essential to listen to for prog fans. This is the album that made the Who huge and without this album The Who would have disbanded. The story itself is just genius but unfortunately the music does not always match it. Sally Simpson and Tommy's Holiday Camp are proof of this. But there are still some great, classic Who songs like 1921, Sparks, Pinball Wizard, Cousin Kevin, We're Not Gonna Take It, See Me/ Feel Me. So you can see that the good definitely overrides the bad and therefore I give Tommy four stars because it's good not perfect and not the best Who album either.
