This is one of my favorite Beatles albums. When this was released in late 1965, the Beatles were already experimenting with different musical styles. The songs on this collection run the full gamut of expression and styles from the highly romantic ballad "Michelle" to the highly danceable "Wait" and "Drive My Car." The lyrics are nonpareil and remain so to this day. The blend of guitar, drum and harmonies remains flawless and unrivalled. "In My Life" is truly an exceptional work of art. It is a musical masterpiece. The lyrics evoke strong feelings and the gentle harmony provides a pleasant contrast to the strong feelings expressed in the lyrics. I always felt it was a shame that most of these songs did not get a lot of radio play (e.g."Wait," "You Won't See Me," "Run for Your Life.") The work contained on this album is of impeccably high caliber and it is something to be heard and treasured to this day.
If I could, I would rate this one more stars.
