4 stars I'm not a Beatles fan, and I heard almost every song they recorded so many times that I would rather not ever hear them again, but I do enjoy this album.

Does it have some prog leanings? Soitenly, as a late great comedian would say. But it also has some spectacular songs. Come Together, Something, Oh! Darling, and Here Comes The Sun are fantastic pop tunes, and the production of them always brings a smile to my ears. Even Maxwell's Silver Hammer, while silly, is finely produced. And the group of songs that filled most of side 2 of the LP version, what more can be said.

But the gem here is I Want You (She's So Heavy). This to me is the best song the Beatles ever produced.
