2 stars When I cleared 2-300 albums out of my own collection last year to make way for a large collection I inherited, this was one of the first to go along with the other Beatles albums. I grew up with The Beatles and Beatlemania and never got seduced by it, and even though I bought all their albums to try I didn't play them more than once or twice as there was nothing to grab my interest - no great epics, few decent solos and dull melodies. I get the impression that they were experimenting to find out what they did best and they didn't get it right very much even by this, their final album. The musicianship is basic and several songs are deplorably bad (the cheesy Octopuses' Garden being the absolute pits). Come Together and Here Comes The Sun redeem it a bit, just enough to save it from the ultimate degradation. And my final comment - how does such a mainstream pop album ever get on a progressive site?
