This is the 1st album of the 2nd part on Beatles' career.

It is a masterpiece.

They start being aware of the recording studio possibilities.

The experimentation is gradual, but evident.

Once again, Mc Cartney is ahead of the rest.

He opens the door with "Drive my car", a mid-tempo rock 'n roll with a very cool rhythm, smart lyrics and a great chorus, which results the perfect piece to start the album (and pretty much to start any album).

He also stands up with another display of his talent writing perfect pop melodies like "You won't see me".

And even creates the greatest piece of the entire album, bringing the heavenliest moment with the out of this word semi-french ballad "Michelle".

Of course Lennon shines too with the deepest track overall "In my life", the sad and touching "Nowhere man" and the semi-folk "Norwegian wood (this bird has flown)".

Harrison, on his part, writes his first masterpiece "Think for yourself".

Distortion bass, sitars, complex and new musical arrangements; The Beatles start shaping popular music and taking it to a different level even creating a new one.

Mattiias | 5/5 |
