2 stars Most of this album is pretty forgettable; The Beatles simply do not offer enough musical interest in their songs or their playing to sustain my attention for a whole album or even album side since I was brought up on more sophisticated songs from bands like Strawbs and Genesis, who develop ideas more. Yes, there are some innovations but the songs just aren't that good and the playing is fairly basic, the odd Harrison solo excepted. However, there is one glorious exception to this mediocrity: Here Comes The Sun is one of the great songs of all time and shows that, whilst Lennon and McCartney get all the plaudits, it was George Harrison who wrote most of their best songs. This album is definitely not a masterpiece in any way and The Beatles are terribly overrated generally. Even Here Comes The Sun can't lift it above 2*.
