This review is from: Yellow Submarine (Audio CD)A mixed bag, but treat it as a film soundtrack rather than a 'proper' album, and there is much to enjoy. 'It's All Too Much' is as loose and 'out there' as The Beatles ever got (and far more 'psychedelic' than anything on Sgt. Pepper). Great to hear them loosen up on the sonic perfectionism and really play. 'Hey Bulldog' is another really powerful song, often overlooked. 'Only a Northern Song' is a fascinating slice of Harrison songwriting, and 'All Together Now' may be a throwaway, but it's lots of fun.
The orchestral stuff may be more of an acquired taste, but it helps evoke this memorable film in all its technicolour glory.
Not an ideal first purchase for someone curious about The Beatles, but essential listening if you have their other albums and enjoy the psychedelic stuff.
