AllMusic Review by

Who Covers Who features affectionate interpretations some of the Who's classic songs from artists like Hyperhead, the Revs, Mint 400, the Mess and Brilliant Corners. In particular, Alex Chilton's rendition of "Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere" and Blur's dashed-off "Substitute" cover capture the rough-and-ready attitude of the Who's early days; though Blur later disowned their performance, it remains one of their most appealing, off-the-cuff moments. Swervedriver's "In the City" and the Telescopes' "Good's Gone" capitalize on the bands' way with hypnotic, loud-yet-dreamy grooves, and add more interest to this uneven but well-intentioned collection.
