The Who - My Generation

Here are some reviews of this album:

Pure, raw stuff. "Out in the street your gonna die slowly", definitely the origin of punk on record. End that debated point right now.

"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.

Right from the opening bars of 'Out in the street', this really does become the definitive Mod experience! I can remember donning my parka and going down to the 400 ballroom (giddy heights!) with this Lp burning a hole through my turntable during the lengthy 'choosing of the clothes' time. The thing with the oooooo is, and maybe this is my age (33), that most of their albums sound like many bands 'Greatest Hits'.....That's the quality of not only the music or lyrics.....but the feel. MY GENERATION.......THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT...youth statements if ever I heard one! This stuff should be played in schools. At the age of 15, Legal Matter was just a great song....at my present age, it's a reality. That's the difference with the Who...they meant it! ps. Keith Moon's drumming on the 'OX' is the first time I thought of the drums as a solo instrument.

The Who didn't actually sing my generation. I think they SMASHED, DESTROYED, DEVASTATED, & OBLITERATED my generation!

For me as mod is that a great album. I bought it in America. My favourite songs are MY GENERATION, THE KIDS ARE ALRIGHT, MUCH TOO MUCH, INSTANT PARTY and LA LA LA LIES. I think that all these songs are the best works of the Album. The best lyric, I think, is "I HOPE I DIE BEFORE I GET OLD" in my generation. Have a nice day.
