Mr. Mustard
2 stars This is the album that started it all. Unfortunately that is the only claim to fame for this album. Musically, it's as far away from prog or even proto-prog as you can get. Not to mention that the band only wrote half the songs on here. Of the songs they did write, 'I Saw Her Standing There,' Ask Me Why,' and of course 'Love Me Do' all deserve recognition. It's not as if any of these songs are bad, but most of what makes them good is held in their nostalgic value.

Not a bad debut album when taken out of the context of prog rock, but nowhere near their best.
