4 stars Man did that movie reeked or what?!?

I'm a fan of the Beatles, period. But that movie was flimsy and simply indigestible. But, of course, the soundtrack was above any critic. In my opinion, Magical Mystery Tour is, in my humble opinion, the most drug related album. From A-Z, it breathes LSD experimentation, and the Fab Four dropped acid more than on any other records; as example the title song, Blue Jay Way, I Am the Walrus and Strawberry Fields Forever.

The only point why I snatched off a star is my objection to say that it's a 'real' Beatles album. They had not enough material to make a full album, and picked some stuff here and there making the other half of the record much less progressive and therefore, interesting. Paul is clearly dominating the rest of the record, giving it a girlie side that I judge being a step backwards what they did in the White Album.

Still, a collection of many, many, many classics.
