Prog Reviewer
3 stars This is kind of a transitional album. It sort of transformed them from their rock n' roll period into their folk rock period, with songs of both eras on here. There are a couple old rock covers, done well but not great songs or anything. Basically what started here was finished on Rubber Soul. Nothing here is really progressive, but is just good early 60's rock. The highlights of the album here are HELP, IT'S ONLY LOVE, and YESTERDAY. Not everything is great but nothing is awful either. You can start to see the true talent of the band starting to show here, but it's not clearly shining like on their later albums either. Good album, it's not progressive, it's not superb, but isn't awful either. Don't come expecting early, middle, or late Beatles. It's really a mix of folk and rock n' roll. If you want really folky Beatles go to Rubber Soul, and if you want early Beatles go to A Hard Day's Night. But there's not a whole reason to go to Help.
