2 stars What happened to The Beatles in this album? Being preceded by the "White Album" and "Magical Mystery Tour", and followed by "Let it Be" and "Abbey Road", It's definitely a low point in the end of the band's career.

The second half of the album is quite boring. Maybe as a soundtrack, I mean, while looking at the movie, it's OK. But included in the album it's kind of a try to make classical music, but George Martin unfortunately is not a classical composer.

The first half, with the common structure of a Beatles album, is far from the quality of the mentioned ones above (yes, maybe "Let it Be" is not so far). In fact, the only real highlight is Lennon's 'Hey Bulldog'. It's fair to mention also 'Yellow Submarine' and 'All You Need Is Love', but they are more commercial hits. Harrison's 'All Together Now' is a good song too, but incomparable with the great ones of him.

"Yellow Submarine", therefore, is an album to complete your collection of The Beatles, and just that. Don't try it if you are not a Beatles fan, you should get a wrong image of these masters.
