By far this is one of the best debuts and for that matter albums ever. Hugely influential to the punk and mod bands of the 1970's. The band plays incredible. Moons drumming, some of the best on a rock record (he never over did anything like ginger baker). Entwistle's bass is great and innovative as well, but Townsend's guitar is the main focus. Feedback and white noise adorn many of the songs, He is one of the founding fathers in guitar rock. Songs such as the Goods Gone, Legal Matter, Much Too Much, Its Not True, and the Ox will never be dated and sound as fresh as ever. The records sound is great too (muddy my ass). This is true mod and punk rock by one of the greatest rock bands of all time. Buy this immediately. The American version includes Circles while the British version replaces this song with I'm A Man. Both albums are excellent don't listen to all these chumps that care about the British version. Their lucky to own any Who album.

"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.

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