3 stars The album with THAT album cover. One of the bigger cultural icons of the last 100 years.

It seems like the band was in disintegration at that time with George and Ringo dropping in and out of the band. In particular George which had left the band and had to be talked back again. It is therefore ironic that one of his and The Beatles best ever songs is the star of this album. Something is a brilliant song by all standards. In my humble views, far better than the other great Beatles love song; Yesterday. Another one of George's songs; Here Comes The Sun is also great. Ringo's Octopus's Garden is also great.

...... The rest of the album is not particular good and this album really disappoints me. There is a lot of studio experiments here which would be adopted by the prog rock movement to great effect. But the songs are not good.

So three brilliant to superb songs and the rest is not so great. A three stars album in short.

3 stars
