4 stars Why this album is an excellent addition? First of all, if you are looking for prog, try another way, but if you are getting into The Beatles, this is an excellent example of their first period.

The album starts with a great beginning, "It won't Be Long", a very good song, maybe the best of the album. After a couple of seconds, when you have retrieve the sanity (it starts with a discharge of power and rock and roll), you find out that the voice is only in the right channel, and the band only in the left one. And the whole album keeps this characteristic (except for Money, at the ending). That's funny.

In this second album, they still included several covers, just like in "Please Please Me". And some of my favourite songs from here are part of this covers: Please Mr. Postman, Devil in Her Heart and Money. Here you also find the first Harrison composition, Don't Bother Me.

At the end, you have a solid album, very balanced, without fillings. 33 minutes of great music and history.

Proglodita | 4/5 |
