Not as good as Please Please Me or A Hard Day's Night, but there's a lot of good stuff to be found here. In particular, the title track, You've Got to Hide Your Love Away, You're Gonna Lose That Girl, and Ticket to Ride are massive standouts for me. And, yes, Yesterday is on this album. Unfortunately, there's quite a bit of filler on side B, but it's not terrible.

Call me crazy, but I'll take this record over Rubber Soul. They were made largely in the same vein, but I've always had a tendency to these collection of songs. I could have done without Act Naturally or the closing track, but overall its a fantastic(and often overlooked)

The best Beatles album so far up to that point. All the songs were good. Overlooked because they would top themselves the same year with Rubber Soul, and then put in one of the greatest albums ever the following year with Revolver.

Their best album from their earlier days. There isn't a weak track on here; in fact, some their best material ever is here.

Other than a few song, really not so much in an of itself, but you can tell the group was getting poised for a major musical breakthrough.

Underappreciated because of what comes after it, with some great tracks. There is clearly some filler, however.

Mostly same sounding stuff, but on this album, you can just start to hear that the group was ready to expand beyond the simple pop/rock formula they had followed so far.
