4.0 out of 5 stars A Hard Album To Put Down..., 22 Dec 2006
This review is from: A Hard Day's Night (Audio CD)
This is the Beatles' third album, and is the first one where every song has been written by the Beatles themselves. And what a good effort!

Not only does the album begin with probably one of the most famous Beatles songs ever, with that exact unidentifiable chord being struck to begin the highly-charged 'A Hard Day's Night', which came from a Ringo-ism, but this album also contains quite a huge number of songs that could quite easily have been singles and done very well in the charts - 'I Should Have Known Better', 'If I Fell', 'Things We Said Today' (which is one of my all-time favourite Beatles songs!) and 'I'll Be Back'. And of course the equally well-known 'Can't Buy Me Love' certainly does the album no harm.

There are quite a range of songs on this album - from the almost old-style rock 'n' roller 'I'm Happy Just To Dance With You', to the quite Bluesy 'I'll Cry Instead', to the love ballad of 'And I Love Her', and this album really does show the true potential of the Beatles as songwriters as every song has something to offer.

This album is worth getting for the high quality of all the songs alone, but I think it is the first album the Beatles did which has so many potential hits, something which they pride themselves on in future albums.

In my opinion:

Best Song = "Things We Said Today"

Weakest Song = "Any Time At All".
