This was awesome, and the best the British Invasion had to offer up to that point.

I love this album. One of the best of 65, though a bit late to the British Invasion. The Kids are Alright is one of my favorite songs, and My Generation is arguably the first punk rock song. Pete Townshend is a great song writer. A great album with great playing from all 3 musicians. Keith Moons drumming is next level.

It has everything that is known to bring a debut down, but this one manages to stand up with classics like "My Generation" and the wonderful "The Kids Are Alright"

Meno male che a Townshend non è riuscito di "morire prima di diventare vecchio"...

Well...hard to know where to start. I loved "I Can't Explain" and "Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere" as singles, and was a Who fan from early '65. However, "My Generation" stills causes the hairs on my neck to jump to attention....probably the best rock single ever, and caused many bands fore decades to come to want to play music. The LP is a mixture of Townshend penned work and covers of R&B and Blues numbers, with varying success, but this was The Who at the time "Maximum R&B". Highlights for me: "My Generation" and "The Goods Gone", in fact the Townshend stuff was a hint of the song writing excellence that was to come. As debuts go, it is amazing and vibrant and powerful stuff.

Uneven. A strong good record but very uneven.
The two best tracks by far are 'My generation' and 'The kids are alright'. Then below that the other standouts are 'The good's gone' and 'A legal matter'.
