    "Ours is a group with built-in hate." Pete Townshend said that in 1965, around the time that THE WHO SING MY GENERATION came out. That hate--or, more accurately, angst--jumps out of the grooves on the album. Although the line between righteous anger and self-centered bitchiness occasionally wears thin, there is no denying that the Who were truly revolutionary. The arresting teenage anthem "My Generation," the shaky solidarity of "The Kids Are Alright," the dizzy confusion of "Instant Party (Circles)"--never had pop music expressed such raw emotions in such an uncompromising manner.
    At the same time, Townshend, despite his bluster, could not escape the fact that underneath his rage lay a melodist worthy of the Brill Building. On tracks such as the crystalline, harmony-laden "Much Too Much," he proved that he didn't need power to create a powerful pop song. In other words, you don't have to be a Mod to enjoy this album. But it helps.

    Rolling Stone (9/19/02, p.108) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...The Deluxe addition adds more black lighting to the original - torched-Motown covers; more JB; the brisk sass of 'Daddy Rolling Stone' an Otis Blackwell bullet rescued from a '65 B side - and doubles as a thundering monument to the late John Entwistle..."
