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 only other debut album which might be as
good as My Generation is the first Led Zeppelin. This album is a
mix of the Maximum R&B they lived by and classics like
"My Generation" and "The Kids Are Alright"
and a great cover of "Please Please Please" the James
Brown song. I love this album and I hope it gets remastered soon
with all the UK songs we missed and the whole version of
"The Kids Are Alright".
This is the ultimate of the Who's early work,
and as far as I'm concerned the top albums of the sixties are My
Generation, Revolver, Let It Bleed, The Stooges and Led Zeppelin
(not in that specific order). When I read the reviews written by
some fans I couldn't believe what I was hearing, people nowadays
just can't understand what raw production is about, who wants a
record like this to be remastered ? The production is perfect, it
captures the Who's aggression and bite perfectly, and is the pure
middle finger to all the refined rock acts who have been picked
up and polished by modern technology. The Who have made a great
album whose production suits it perfectly, why wreck it?
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.
