Here are some reviews of this album:

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 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?

What's up with the word "Sing", on the US version, huh? Oh well. This I think, set The Who's image for their entire career. "Hope I die before I get old." The words which haunt Pete Townshend the worst. But this is the Who like they were at the Marquee and the Goldhawk. This is the Who, before they got caught up in rock operas, and synthesizers.
I think it's one of the hardest rock albums. If your listen to this, and then something later, oh, say, "The Who by Numbers", you can see where they've come from.

"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.
