2 stars 2.5 stars really!!

This is simply a collection of early Beatles hit singles, nothing more nothing less. The Blue Album is less of a compilation of hits like this is, and it is a compilation their good songs, but this is solely just The Beatles hits early on. There's not much explaining to do. Everyone knows PLEASE PLEASE ME and LOVE ME DO from just the way pop culture spreads. But that's all this is. The second disc is much better better than the first because it includes some psychedelic and rock songs, but disc one is simply their early rock and roll songs.

If you don't know much about The Beatles and hate prog, start here. For any prog fan, this is decent rock music, that is better to be left skipped anyway. If you like prog, start with The Blue Album as a compilation, but not this.

4/5 for a rock and roll compilation. 2/5 for a proto-prog compilation.

Final Score: 2.5/5
