5-star review  from  Chris Strafford

This is one of greatest singles ever put to together a demo recored by John in the late 70s with a little help from Paul and George, plus Jeff Lynn and Ringo Starr. Should have gave the Beatles a number one hit.

3-star review  from  Tsmith

This doesn’t really sound like the Beatles to me. It’s not a bad song, and I do like it, but the "sound" is nothing like anything that they released during their proper career. Part of that is probably to do with the rough homemade recording of John that they were forced to work with, which wasn’t ideal, but a lot of it has got to do with Jeff Lynne. If you ask me, I think he put too much of his own ideas into it when he should have left alone. The Beatles don’t need a new producer to come up with ideas for them.
