Really good album but a major downfall from A Hard Day's night. Some great songwriting here though with I'm A Loser, No Reply, Eight Days A Week, I Don't Want To Spoil the Party, and What You're Doing. But the others are just fillers and bring the album down. Probably just better than With the Beatles and that's it.
One of the lesser Beatles albums. I did not enjoy this one all that much.
Not their best, but not bad. Goodies like '8 days a week', 'No reply' and 'I'm a Loser' save it.
No reply is good, but other stuffs are not good
Damn this is considered the best band in the world? Impossible if they ever released something this weak.
More of a fan of their later stuff. But this isn't a bad album - just perpetuates their status as pop idols early in their career.
This is one of the 2 weakest Beatles albums along with "With The Beatles". My favourite songs: "I'm A Loser" and "I'll Follow The Sun". However, "Mr. Moonlight" must be the worst song covered by The Beatles. This is one of the albums made in a rush to cash up on "Beatlemania"
Probably me least favorite of the Beatles albums. It somehow gives the impression that they were mailing it in and tired of the machine they were caught on.
It has often been said that The Beatles on this album appear tired, and somewhat uninspirered. If this was so it would not be unnatural, after within two years having recorded four albums and several singles, almost constant touring and with all the buzz around their enormous popularity.
The album title and the bandmembers' own slightly weary attitudes seem to support this theory. However, I will choose to focus on the music which in no way seems tired to me.
The group has in this album perfected their well-known expression, and their own songs are stronger than ever. You could object and say that several of the six cover songs might not be among the most interesting Beatles recordings; and I would not completely disagree.
Like on the later "Rubber Soul" several numbers are characterized by the acoustic guitar, which gives them a crisp but also a soft sound, on a few songs almost folkish.
The great sound and production are also help to demonstrate the group's lush harmonies and their individual vocally strengths.
John Lennon was at this point the group's undisputed vocal center - with Paul and George predominantly as harmonies. A quick review shows that Lennon's takes the lead vocals on "No Reply," "I'm a Loser," "Rock and Roll Music", "Mr Moonlight", "Eight Days a Week," "Every Little Thing" and "I Don't Want to spoil the Party ". On the duets "Baby's in Black" and "Words of Love" it is Lennon you hear most clearly, and even on McCartney's "I'll Follow the Sun" he sings the first verse lines.
There was certainly good reason to leave Lennon lead-vocals. His voice was incredibly powerful these years, and his interpretations of rock and roll songs like "Rock and Roll Music" is nothing less than overwhelming.
McCartney sings "Kansas City", and actually does it almost equally; that track as such does not work as well as the aforementioned is another matter. On the Beatles originals McCartney actually only has lead-vocals on "I'll Follow the Sun" and "What You're Doing". Ringo and George each sing a Carl Perkins number, a thing of which George clearly comes out best.
For me, the album's highlights are many, but especially the two delicate acoustics "No Reply" and "Every Little Thing", are tracks you never grow tired of. McCartney's "I'll Follow the Sun" and "What You're Doing" are almost as good. "Eight Days Week" is a classic that could have been a chart topper, but which was hidden on the back of the stunning "Rock and Roll Music". "I'm a Loser" can almost be regarded as a precursor to the "Help" and "Baby's Black" and "I Don't Want to Spoil the Party" are just good numbers. Among the cover versions, besides "Rock and Roll Music," "Words of Love" comes out the best (it actually sounds like a Beatles' song). "Mr Moonlight", "Kansas City", "Honey Don't" and "Everybody's Trying to Be My Baby" are solid recordings but numbers you could have done without if necessary.
