3 stars All of The Beatles' albums were at least good. In the early days, they had to come up with two albums a year. You won't find any other band who could 'churn out' something of this quality after having already written one album of completely original material in the same year (whilst on the road!) followed by more relentless touring and movie making.

Both the covers and originals are all good in my opinion. There's a nice bit of rock 'n'roll. I especially love "Mr Moonlight" and the "Kansas City/Hey-Hey-Hey-Hey" medley is pretty cool too with McCartney's screaming Little Richard styled vocals.

"Beatles For Sale" is definitely the most moody of the fab four albums. The first three songs are quite cynical. But that kind of touch sets this apart from the other releases and isn't a bad thing at all. "No Reply" and "I'm A Loser" are really decent tracks but "Baby's In Black" is one of the best. "Eight Days A Week", "Every Little Thing" and "I'll Follow The Sun" are all wonderful, showing that the group's compositions and songwriting were getting interesting. It was all uphill from here! 3 solid stars for this album. No less!
