It's the Beatles so it's at least a good album. Least of the Beatles albums so far, however.
Often a lower ranked album on Beatles lists, but mostly for the lackluster covers on the album like "Words of Love". At least to Beatles standards, a slight disappointment, but a decent Beatles album is often a masterpiece compared to other works of the time.

A Beatles album is always worth listening to. This is no different. It has some filler (Mr Moonlight is awful) but it still has Eight Days a Week and I’ll Follow the Sun. Slight dip in their incredibly high standards but still a good enjoyable album.
A good album by the Beatles, not quite their best, but still a important piece of record. Overall this is a more calm and less energetic attempt than theirs previous work. Making their way to experimenting new types of sound.
Least favorite Beatles album but still gave us Eight Days A Week
Often seen as a minor step back from A Hard Day's Night as this album has a lot of cover songs dew to the fact that The Beatles were under a lot of stress and a crazy time table for creating new albums. However the Lennon/McCartney songs on this album are some of the best ones yet to have been released. Just look at the first treo of songs. No Reply, I'm A Loser and Baby's in Black as well as Eight Day's a Week and Every Little Thing. Amazing stuff!!
I don't agree that this is one of the Beatles' weaker albums. There are some great songs on there, particularly "No reply", "I'll follow the sun" and "eight days a week": all classics of the Fabs' earlier period. Sure, the covers aren't quite as good, but they are still fine and don't spoil the album.
I agree that this a more downbeat record in tone than their previous ones, but I take that as a positive as it gives an empathetic feel to the album. The bands' instinct for great pop is still very much intact. This album is not as "artistically interesting" as their much rated later albums like Revolver or Abbey Road, but is a much more down to earth and fun pop album.
May be the weaker of the UK albums. Its got some great tunes, "I'll Follow the Sun" is one of Paul's underrated acoustic masterpieces. Then there is "Eight Days a Week" and John's self-loathing on "I'm a Loser". But part of the album seems like they are tired and haggard from touring, so much so that they move away from original compositions and back to covers, something they didn't do on "A Hard Day's Night". "Mr. Moonlight" has a tremendous opening from John and nicely sung choruses, but does not deliver with the lackluster verse singing. I'd say the same with "Words of Love" A cover that doesn't match up with the original in the same way their covers from With The Beatles did. (The best version of "Kansas City" is the alternate take on Anthology 1.)
