Here are some reviews of this album:
This is my favourite album of all time. I cant believe that people complain about its choice of material or quality of vocals or
pete's 'unmatured' songwriting. This album is everything that British guitar music needs and lacks at the moment, pure excitement, freshness, rawness, perfect pop tunes and raw R n b.
Keith's drumming is like one huge drum solo, Pete's guitar is innovative as ever without all that self
indulgent Isle of White type rubbish, Johns bass playing is innovative and original, Rogers vocals are young and
aggressive and full of emotion and its all stuck together with fantastic hooks, sweet harmonies and fantastic pop songwriting. Kinda like the Beatles on French Blues. Out on the
street - awesome powerful aggressive opener, I Don't Mind, great soul stuff, Goods Gone - moody pop sounds, La la Lies is a great jaunty pop song nice sound, Much too Much is a great
piece of pop music, almost exhilarating, My Generation (well you know what THAT is), Please Please Please is a nice change of pace after the
positive craft of 'kids', Its Not True is a pointer to Where Pete's natural quirkiness
as a songwriter was going, same with A legal Matter, I'm A Man - great bit of R
'n' B and then the Ox which is great fun and a nice powerful finish. No mature songwriting? Bah humbug, go and dig your Led Zeppelin albums out and forget what is like to be a young. I love this album. At 18 people think
I'm a bit odd.
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.
What a great album! From start to finish this album packs a ferocious punch. Alot of great feedback and songs. The Ox is just fucking nuts as well as some fine
James brown covers and group originals. Anyone wanting to dig further into mid 1960's British rock will want to hear the dutch Outsiders, Q65, Pretty Things, Wimple Winch, The
Birds, Tintern Abbey, The Move, and the great Poets. All these bands are fantastic and innovative.
This isn't the best debut by a British rock
band ever (I prefer the debuts of the Stones, the Clash, and the
Sex Pistols, personally), nor is it even close to being the Who's
finest moment. It does contain a clutch of memorable Townshend
originals ("The Kids Are Alright," "A Legal
Matter," and two semi-forgotten songs which I love,
"The Good's Gone" and "It's Not True," which
basically presents a prototype for punk to the world), as well as
two banal James Brown covers in which Daltrey's overemoting
nearly matches that of Dave Davies on "Beautiful
Delilah," from another Shel Talmy-produced debut (truly a
hysterical performance). "My Generation" itself can't
really be counted; it was made as a single and thus stands apart
from the album (and anyway it's hard to separate the song from
its historical context, although as a performance, it's the early
Who at their very best). 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.
