This album has grown on me through the years. I never considered it near the top of Beatle albums, let alone all albums. I do now. Norwegian Wood, In My Life and Michelle are my favorite tracks. Thumbs up!

A inocência estava ficando para trás. O iê iê iê amadurecia em lindas melodias e letras perspicazes. A virada dos Beatles e da música sessentista.

Solid album by Beatle standards. It bridges the gap between the simple early guitar pop and the later hippie escapism and drug ridden nonsense.

The predecessor to Revolver beats a compilation of the best tracks from their previous 5 albums.

There are so many great tracks on this album that one forgets what an epic album it actually is. Because I have a theory that great sleeve designs help sell great albums, I feel that this album is often given a wider birth than the more well known albums. The vinyl re-issue sounds superb and certainly doesn't sound its age.

From Nowhereman1965 09/09/2018 13:02
Incredibly, when I first heard this album as a teenager I thought it was mediocre!! I now realise it’s one of the best albums ever made. By a superb band entering their imperial phase. It has a “folk rock” element to it that I love. Lennon & McCartney were on fire, giving us enduring classics like In My Life, Michelle, Nowhere Man ,Drive my Car and Norwegian Wood. However the standard of songs overall is very high for a band who were touring and appearing on tv constantly. A classic.
