2 stars This still has no value to the progressive rock at all, sorry but this is my opinion. Well, I don't need to explain about The Beatles, you know everything about them. Even talking about the easy listening rock albums, this one is booring. The first track, I Saw Her Standing There, is a happy pop rock, featuring clapping hands and dancin rhythm, and it's the highlight of the album. It's a funny album, but cliche enough even for the genre. Misery it's just another fine Beatles song. Anna (Go To Him) is terrible! Poor listening. Chains is better than Anna, but it stinks too. Boys is a poor rockabilly track. I'm very harsh with rockabilly and rocknroll since I'm a very fan of the Stray Cats. If Brian Setzer did amazing riffs into the rockabilly sameness, why Harrison couldn't? Ask Me Why is too "normal" for me. And it sounds like a song to old men, to boring old men. Please Please Me and Love Me Do are both cool tracks. Very similar tracks, mainly the intro. Love Me Do is better than the main track, I think. P.S. I Love You is too much like an Elvis hawaian track. It's horrible. Baby It's You is another slow cliche rock. another poor odd. Do You Want To Know A Secret is probably the best track of the album. It's a calm rock, and the melody is catchy for my ears. The song is short, like most of them, so I don't have any problem with the sameness of the track. A Taste of Honey is a forgettable slow rock. There's A Place tries to use the same Please Please Me track formula, but the chords are better than Please Please Me again. Well, Twist and Shout is the finishing track, maybe the most famous, but I don't like it.
