4 stars This is the first great Beatles album. It marks an important transition in the band when they were getting rid of their pop rock and roll style and moving onto something different. It is not their former pop genre, though it is not their great psychedelic era yet. Most tracks are different than anything they ever did up to that point. With the great love song "Michelle", the amazing "Wait", and the great vocal harmonies of "Nowhere Man", The Beatles were starting to get somewhere. Of course, this album marks the point where Harrison started to become a prominent songwriter with his great songs "Think For Yourself" and "If I Needed Someone." In fact, "If I Needed Someone" is the best track on the album. It sounds very much like songs of The Byrds. The only drawbacks of this album are the opening and closing songs and that this album isn't as good as the band's following efforts.
