Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
The Who's second album is a less impressive outing than their debut, primarily because, at the urging of their managers, all four members penned original material though Pete Townshend wrote more than anyone else. The pure adrenaline of My Generation also subsided somewhat as the band began to grapple with more complex melodic and lyrical themes, especially on the erratic mini-opera "A Quick One While He's Away."

The pure adrenaline of My Generation also subsided somewhat as the band began to grapple with more complex melodic and lyrical themes, especially on the erratic mini-opera "A Quick One While He's Away." Still, there's some great madness on Keith Moon's instrumental "Cobwebs and Strange," and Townshend delivered some solid mod pop with "Run Run Run" and "So Sad About Us."
