5 stars Classic, eternal classic. Even some songs can sound not so well (and we all know it, everyone has their favourites and especially in case of The Beatles, there will be good/bad songs, because of their "singles", or "hits" orientation, so their albums aren't so consistent [except Abbey Road], even they can be good, so their albums seems more like collections of hits).

Even US release, in these modern times, boundaries between countries are quite non- existing to be honest. So everyone can enjoy it (more or less). There' another weird problem, there are songs (like Fool, Magical, Walrus, Strawberry and Penny Lane) that I know very well. In fact, I grew up listening to these (basically). And there are others, also good, but different, not so well known (Flying, Blue) that aren't bad, no way, but only they're like uncharted territory. It's exceptional album, as everybody (literally), should know at least one song. Dreamy territory exploring Strawberry Fields Forever would be my favourite. Or nonsense classic I Am the Walrus (I like my girlfriend dancing like these walruses with pointing fingers doing the rhythm, while smiling and humming this melody).

5(+), very special one, believe me. Even it's "just" proto prog, there are no bad songs that beats it down.
