Sound — 10
Great sound on this album. This is the first album of there's that I heard aside from 'Beatles 1'. I couldn't be more pleased. They used alot of Lennon on piano in this one. They also use alot of uncommon instruments (for rock, atleast) like sitars, brass or string ensembles, and even a slide flute on one song.

Classic Beatles song writing. Paul does awsome singing in every song where he has the lead. Lennon and the others aren't bad either. The music really goes well with the lyrics too.
Overall Impression — 10
This is the only Beatles album I have so I don't know how it measures up to others. It's been named a classic though, and I'm not surprised because it's excellent. If I lost it I would definitely get it again.
