Here are some reviews of this album:

This isn't exactly as famous or well known as Who's Next is, but I've still got to say that this album ROCKS!!!!!!!!! When I first bought this I was completely blown away by "The Ox", "Instant Party (Circles)", "Out In The Street", "The Kids Are Alright", "It's Not True", and "My Generation". This is my favorite Who album. Who's Next is second. This is truly an awesome album. Buy it, you'll see what I mean!

The Who showed what a powerful band they were from day one. Out On The Street is an awesome song. Its too bad it often gets overlooked. Myself I think its one of their best early songs. My other favs on here are "I Don't Mind", "It's Not True", "My Generation", "The Kids Are Alright" and "The Ox." Also of note is the intense James Brown cover "Please Please Me". Roger unleashes his famous growl on that one and the whole song just rocks. I hope I get to see the day where this is properly reissued. I got the cheap bargain bin 1980's c.d. version, which actually doesn't sound too bad, but I'd drop it in a second if a deluxe version came along. Especially if one of the bonus tracks was "Motoring" which is a great drumming showcase for Keith. I think we also deserve to finally get a full version of "I'm A Man." That said, I think "Circles" would be nice to have on there too because it really signals towards the sounds they reached later on on "Sell Out" and "Tommy." The Who's My Generation is an amazing and powerful debut album. It deservers a lot more respect and a better pressing on C.D. than the one now available. Come on Shel Talmy, what gives?

"My Generation" is unquestionably one of best debut albums in rock. It allows you to feel the real sound of early The Who. The title song is one of best rock songs ever, but unfortunately the sound quality on this not remastered version is not perfect. Another highlight is "The Kids Are Alright" which is ( in spite of rather Beatlish sound) The Who's classic. The album includes also the great ballad "The Good's Gone", rather lightweight , but attractive "La La La Lies" and great beat standart "It's Not True". The first instrumental in Who's career "The Ox" with it's heavy bass riff allows the band to strech away. Another two Townshend's songs:"A Legal Matter" and "Circles"(on MCA CD only) also rock. The first is rather close to "The Last Time" by The Stones and the second is the first version of the song which was later re-recorded and retitled "Instant Party"(aviable on "Rarities") to became the B-side of "Substitute" single. The only Townshend song here, which is not as well-done as others is "Out In The Street". It's intro is completely taken from "Anyway,Anyhow,Anywhere" and the melody is quite forgettable. Another bad point here is "I Don't Mind" which is rather boring in compare with much better "Please, Please, Please". Finally, I can say that this album is great and highly recommended.

Ok, so Pete stole a Kinks' groove when he wrote "I Can't Explain", but this album blows away anything The Kinks, The Beatles, or The Stones did up to this point. I think for a bands debut album this ranks up with if not above Led Zeppelin I or The Doors first album. "Out in the Streets" and "The Goods Gone" are total rockers. Remember at this point the Beatles were still singing "I Wanna Hold Your Hand". Roger's vocals (which is my least favorite member) are nothing but angry and powerful on every song which he's on, plus "The Ox" which he is not on is angry enough without him. This is Roger's second best effort, besides Quadrophenia. I'm glad they made this album, because I couldn't live without it. "Keith wasn't a timekeeper", and I'm glad.
