8/10 Tom Customer review, 30th May 2018The Beatles third album was the soundtrack to their breezy movie A Hard Day's Night and if you're a fan of the Beatles it's hard not to be swept away in the fun of it all (if you're not a fan it must be bloody painful to watch). This album marked the first time Lennon and McCartney wrote all the songs on a Beatles album (having previously always included an old rock n' roll standard or two) and while there are still a few throwaway songs here and there, for the most part it's an excellent showcase of their talents. Not only does the album include some of their best known songs (including the title track, 'Can't Buy Me Love') but it also contains some signs of their later experimentation with unusual chord progressions and a more sombre side ('Things We Said Today', 'And I Love Her').
7/10 Penrith Steve Customer review, 15th February 2016Probably as I because I wasn't born at the time that The Beatles were making records, I tend prefer the albums from Rubber Soul onwards. "A Hard Days Night" does have flashes of their brilliance though and at least half of this album is brilliant. "If I Fell", "And I Love Her", "Anytime At All" and "Things We Said Today" are all great. The tracks I don't particularly like are "I Should Have Known Better" and "I'll Be Back" as they have a bit too much of that generic Merseybeat sound: Gerry & The Pacemakers et al, which I just can't be doing with. Anyway, all of the Beatles albums are worth buying, I'd probably buy them from "Help!" onwards before buying the first four.
