Non c'era ancora niente qua dentro al confronto di molte delle loro opere successive, eppure c'era giĆ  tantissimo...

This album, a couple of years ago, was the first time I ever heard any early Beatles songs except those on the 1 album. I just assumed the rest were crap, but holy God was I shocked to find that there were loads of nice Beatles songs with catchy melodies that I'd never even heard of! A pure goldmine.

My favorites tracks by this band are in this album. Twist and Shout, I Saw Her Standing There, Anna, Baby It's You, Misery, Boys... they are great! The other ones just sound a little bit boring.

What a debut album! The band sounds amazing and you can really hear how well they gel together from playing eight days a week in Hamburg. Paul and John also almost sound as the same person on this record, which makes their duo style sound incredible. Maybe due to the fact that Lennon had a cold the week they recorded the album.

Probably the best, or one of the best, pop albums ever.
Every song just exudes white, pure, golden pop-bliss. Man, the Beatles know how to write melody.
Best Songs: Anna (Go To Him), Love Me Do, Do You Want to Know a Secret?
Worst: Chains, Twist and Shout, A Taste of Honey

A solid debut album from the greatest band of all time. There are some good songs, singles, and covers. Here is where we get the first taste of the Beatles in history.

Highlights- Anna (Go to Him), A Taste of Honey, There's a Place, Twist and Shout

Their first album still holds up with the rest of their work for me, despite being almost half covers. Shows they always knew how to write songs...the complexity would come later

From souplipton 06/14/2016 21:29
Please Please Me was The Beatles' first release, and it was a great one. It featured the pop sound that would be their signature until Revolver, a sound that would make them the biggest band in music history. This first album featured eight Lennon-McCartney originals, including "I Saw Her Standing There", "Please Please Me", and "Love Me Do", and six covers including the great "Twist and Shout". The album is the best of The Beatles' early albums, but isn't on par with their more complicated later work.

Beatles debut is heavy on the harmony and light on the musicianship. They also aren't writing their own songs yet but they are taking previously made songs and absolutely killing them on re-makes.

Fun to listen to since there aren't any hints yet of what kind of potential they possess but this is a well constructed well sung debut album
