2 stars If this would have been a rock'n'roll album, which it almost is, it would probably seem as more consequent. The butter-sweet pop songs brings it down a bit since they are far from the quality that was to come later. Hits like "Love me Do" and "Please Please Me" are great, but the quality overall is far below later Beatles standard. It's a shame that the raw and unpolished sound that they had at this point didn't come through when making this album. Because the strength in early Beatles is the rock parts rather than the popsongs. I will probably rate all Beatles albums with four or five stars, but this doesn't get more than 2.
