This is it. This is the gold standard of albums. You think "Pinball Wizard" is a good song? Wait until you hear it in context. Tommy is far from just a collection of songs. Each track is a chapter in a story. This album paved the way for Quadrophenia, The Wall, American Idiot, hell, even "Trapped in the Closet." This is a groundbreaking work from one of the greatest bands of all time. Stop reading and download it.
