3-star review  from  Roy

This always gets panned by critics but if you give it a chance then there is plenty to enjoy here.

Yellow Submarine and All Together Now are nice if you don’t take them seriously. They have got nice tunes and its difficult not to enjoy them when theyre playing. Hey Bulldog is one of John’s best songs, and it’s a shame that it ended up on here because lots of people don’t know about it, because they never put Yellow Submarine on the stereo.
All You Need Is Love is a classic, of course. Who cares that it had already been released before? Does that mean its no longer a classic? Of course not. It’s a first rate song and the album is 10x stronger for it.

The only songs I don’t really care for are the George ones. I can stomach It’s All Too Much, but never bother listening to Only A Northern Song. I think he was trying to write a bad song (in the same way that les dawson tried to play bad piano) and that is exactly what he ended up doing.

As for the George Martin instrumentals… they are a perfectly pleasant way to pass the time. I don’t see anything bad about those. If you let yourself enjoy them, then you will. Give them a chance!
