2 stars Charming stuff.

First of all; please ignore the two stars I have given this album. Qualitywise, it is two stars. When it comes to joyful and charming, add a couple of more stars. This album is not the best The Beatles has ever done. It is pretty substandard, in fact. The rock'n'roll covers (album fillers) feels out of place on this album too. Only tracks like Eight Days A Week and I'll Follow The Sun is up to the normal The Beatles standard. But the naive music on this album is pretty charming. I would also say a joy to behold. Even the album fillers are pretty charming.

It says everything about The Beatles that even a substandard album from them is a good album. It is only a two stars album for a proghead like myself and most others here. But I would challenge any other pop group to come up with a good album as Beatles For Sale. A big pluss for the iconic artwork too. This album is not bad at all.

2.5 stars
