The Who - My Generation

Here are some reviews of this album:

What can I say that hasn't already been said about My Generation? This is bollocks. However, it is the type of bollocks that makes me jump up and down, again and again and again. While other albums only make me jump again and some again again, this album satisfies my lust. If this CD had a smaller hole, only then could I get more pleasure from it.

This is a wonderful album from the beginning of The Who. Some favorites and some deep tracks make the album balanced. One can tell from the C.D. that even then, The Who had an idea of their strengths and weaknesses and how to capitalise on them. The sound may be a bit raw for newcomers, but the well known hits may compensate. Some favorite tracks are : Bucket T., and, of course, The Ox.
The only problem is that this is the American release and The English release has the track I really wanted to hear on it, I'm a Man.

Given that it is one the strongest debuts in rock history. Given that it is far superior to the band's second album. Also given that Pete's songwriting was very mature, even in its infancy. This album showcases the best of the early, raw, Mod Who. They quickly abandoned this approach to create more sophisticated songs and arrangements. One can only wonder what would happen if this record was remixed and repackaged like the rest of the Who catalogue. This is my one problem with the record: the muddy sound. I know most folks feel that is what makes it so classic, but the Stones' Exile was redone to great success. That's a very muddy album. I just wish this album was taken out of the hands of Shel Talmy and could stand with the rest of the albums in new clothing. Overall, I'd agree that this is early Who at its very best. The real strength is that Townshend was already setting teen angst to loud guitars. Moon made his presence felt by letting listeners know that he was one of the most original drummers in Rock. Entwistle proved that he was the most gifted bass player of his generation. Daltrey had a ways to go, but he was still competent enough to handle the growling R&B numbers. It would still be hard pressed to forsee the glories to come. The Who did make better albums than this, but as Rock debuts go, this one stands as one the greatest.

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.
