4.0 out of 5 stars Tell me that you want the kind of things, That money just can't buy, 19 Feb 2010
This review is from: A Hard Day's Night (Audio CD)
Most people under the age of 50, which, alas, I'm not, can't understand the fuss. You try and tell them, `But the Beatles were first!', and it doesn't compute - they're just a bunch of old, slightly tinny-sounding, songs. Of course if it hadn't been them it would have been someone else, but it was them.

This album was made at the height of Beatlemania, somehow in their song-writing it hadn't quite got through to them that their world (and ours) was changed forever.(Whether for good or bad depends on your point of view, I happen to think for good, probably). Most of the songs are still about getting/losing girls but there are hints in the title track and `Can't Buy Me Love' that they are starting to realise what they've gotten themselves into.

There are a couple of duds on here but for the most part these songs still sound what they were intended to be - damn good pop songs. There's nothing to match the paranoid, at times moving, genius of what was to come on `Help', `Rubber Soul' and `Revolver', but it's still pretty fine and, for those of you under 50, they were first!
