As for the rest, the "next" button is most useful.

Run For Your Life is the worst Beatles track of all time and mars an otherwise great album.

In terms of pure musicianship, I agree. But that's not what makes it the worst.

The only track I really can’t stand is “What Goes On”, the rest are fine. I used to think of this album as equal to Revolver...I’m not sure what I was thinking. I might rank it behind A Hard Day’s Night at this point.

Favorite Tracks: Norwegian Wood, Michelle, Wait

The first "grown" up Beatles album - but yes, I don't finish the album most times anymore. That closing track gives me the creeps.

HoldenM alluded to it, but somebody has to say that In My Life is easily their greatest early era pop song ever written.

I hate Run For Your Life as well. It spoils the album with its rampant misogyny.
