    If any Beatles album can be said to be underrated -- which I believe they can, because as popular as The Beatles remain there are still tons and tons of people who have no awareness of this or any other Beatles album; this one remains pretty unloved by the overall Beatles fanbase -- this is one. It's a huge step forward for them, Lennon in particular, especially in terms of the subject matter of the songs. "No Reply," "I'm a Loser," etc., were not the typical "boy meets girl" songs they and their peers had been writing. Unfortunately, as on With the Beatles, the covers here are really crummy juxtaposed with the brilliant originals. It's also disappointing that after writing all the songs themselves on A Hard Day's Night they reverted to the "some originals/some covers" format. At any rate, this is far better than its reputation and is in my opinion really good.

    i don't think words like worst, underrated or overrated apply to the beatles. this is a beatles' album, so you basically know what you're getting: great composition, even better execution, and some things that will make you lose your breath, even after hearing it a thousand times before.

    There is so many people saying that this is their worst album, while I feel like this one is the best.
