4 stars 4.5 stars really!!!

This has nothing to do with the album, but don't watch the movie, it sucks. Anyway, we're talking about the album not the movie. I believe this a downstep from Sgt. Pepper, but not a huge one. The music still has a prog relation on songs like MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR, STRAWBERRY FIELDS FOREVER, BLUE JAY WAY, FLYING and BABY YOU'RE A RICH MAN. I don't particulary like songs like ALL YOU NEED IS LOVE, but nothing is really bad at all. This isn't quite as experimental as Sgt. Pepper, but the music is still incredible, and that's all that really matters. I skip a couple tracks occaisionally, but it's not like anything's unlistenable or anything. If you like later Beatles, you'll like this, and really so will anyone. It's a couple steps down from Sgt. Pepper, but then again, what isn't? A great addition for any prog fan's collection.

J-Man | 4/5 |
