Who Came First is a pleasant enough album, that sees Townshend paying tribute to his deceased mentor Meher Baba. The opener "Pure and Easy" is one of Townshend's greatest songs, and ex-Faces Ronnie Lane follows that with the modestly charming "Evolution".

The album's overall sound is thin, but modestly charming is in fact a description that typifies the album as a whole - it's all good, except for the overlong religious hymn on Side Two, and though solo Townshend lacks the power and majesty of The Who, the album would be a good investment for Who/Townshend fans.
