Although I didn't see the actual movie until after I heard the soundtrack I was hooked on the music right away. It's a little hard to follow the first time you listen, but every time it gets better, especially if you watch the movie. I like it becasue all of the singing on the soundtrack is done by Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey, unlike int he movie where the actors sing the songs. While the all-star cast (including Eric Clapton, Tina Turner, Elton John, etc.) creates a stunning effect in the movie, I enjoy the consistency of one artist singing the songs more. If you've never heard or seen "Tommy" I strongly suggest you do.
