my personal RATING : κκκκ (out of 5)


The first album entirely written by the Beatles.

Almost all songs have an high grade of inspiration and the classics do not miss.

John defined And I love her as the first Paul's Yesterday...

The tracks from1 to 7 were included into the first Beatles' film soundtrack (A hard day's night by UA films).

I suggest to buy it if you haven't did it yet.
