Como já possuía o CD com um belo encarte estilo livreto, comprei o LP esperando um encarte bacana também, mas infelizmente este é simples e detém apenas as informações originais da época do lançamento. Nada de informações adicionais históricas, como existe no CD.
It's not that easy to review this album. I did say that it was probably the weakest album by The Beatles, but can any of their albums be classed as weak, I think not. Apart from the Orchestrations on side 2, there were only 4 New songs by the band when this album was originally released. I still have my vinyl copy, which I had converted to MP 3, but the quality was not nearly as good, as the CD, so I am really HAPPY with this product. I would recommend this album, as the songs are terrific, and, I must admit, as I am now older, the George Martin orchestration s are pleasant to listen to. As this CD has been remastered, I am only now hearing parts of the songs which I had not heard before. Would definitely recommend this to ardent Beatles fans.
The worst of the original Beatles releases. With the exception of the new car-crash of the Beatles Love album (which is Giles Martin playing frankenstein and producing a monster) this is the worst Beatles album you can possibly buy. It's awful, truly awful compared to anything else they ever released. TLDR: save your money, spend it on something else. Why?
Don't be fooled by the track listing, of the 13 tracks, only the first 6 are actually proper Beatles tracks. The other 7 are instrumental score from the cartoon and while composed by George Martin, they're not really much to do with The Beatles themselves. They're not particularly worth listening to as pieces of music in their own right. Pepperland is ok, I suppose, but some of the others are kind of droning junk. Flotsam around the periphery of this nautically themed musical shipwreck.
Of those first 6 proper Beatles tracks two are available on other albums (Yellow Submarine on Revolver, and All You Need Is Love on Magical Mystery Tour) and both of those albums are actually worth buying. The other 4 consist of three written by George Harrison, and one by John Lennon - and without wishing to do mr H a disservice - I think it's fair to say these are not his finest work.
Tracks 4 and 5 Hey Bulldog and It's All Too Much are best described as B-sides. There's potential there, but they don't quite cut it alongside the main album tracks. - Hey Bulldog has the catchy riff, and is the best of the bunch (it was written by Lennon), but it just isn't quite refined and (given the ending) has the overtones of a muck-around that got enough editing to make it onto a disc, and not get saved up for the anthology mop-up a few decades later. - It's all Too Much begins with the interesting attempt at mimicking a Hendrix intro, then goes off-piste with a second intro more akin to a Blackpool pier wurlitzer, and ends in a bit of a mess. It should end after Ringo's drum crescendo circa 3:52 but sadly it drags on all the way to 6:28 with the musical equivalent of polyfiller. It might make sense against the cartoon, but as a piece of music it's lacking. It definitely is all too much.
Then there are tracks 2 and 3 - Only a Northern Song, and All Together Now. -Only a Northern Song sounds like a late-night "too tired to be bothered, but have to do my homework for my producer when I don't want to". The clue is in the song writing commentary "it doesn't really matter , what chords I play, what words I say..." etc - they've done their homework by writing how boring they're finding having to do their homework. A bit like a grumpy pupil handing in a doodle of a dog-turd for his art homework. To me this song is the drivel antithesis of the genius that is Hello Goodbye (which was written to show a journalist how easily song writing came to McCartney). It's almost like Harrison's late night drunken mumbling parody. Easily skippable. (NB this track was rejected from Sgt Peppers for not being good enough. Kind of says it all) -All Together Now starts with promise, but at 20 seconds you start to worry, at 25 seconds you get that horrible sinking feeling you get witnessing an accident unfold before you, and from 30 seconds it becomes teeth-pullingly tedious and more deserving of a place on an infants' song album along with other repetitive tedium such as the wheel's on the bus, old McDonald and Bingo. Thankfully it's only 2.13 long. In fact, 30 seconds onwards is almost a different song. It's like he had an intro and hadn't finished it, but they just shoved it at the front to try and salvage a piece of tosh written by someone else entirely. A bit like putting "the Beatles" name on a cartoon where all the voices were provided by impersonating actors.
So, all things considered, assuming you're wanting to get a collection of Beatles songs, you can skip this album. If you own the other albums you'll listen to this the grand total of never. The good songs are on other albums. The musical scores at the end are not worth the time, and the 1 B-side and 3 D-sides are not interesting enough to make you want to blow the dust off and listen to it ever again.
Buying this album is a waste of money. Quite how other people on here are giving this album 5 stars baffles me. Don't say I didn't warn you. If you really really want to get it just to own Hey Bulldog then get the remastered songtrack 1999 version which has other Beatles songs too (basically anything half decent that had a snippet, bar or beat played in the film).

Yellow Submarine Songtrack
I remember loving this film and the soundtrack as a youngster (it was the first album I ever owned and it was on an old cassette) but at that point I didn't really know much about The Beatles or their music but of course over the years over growing up that has changed! This is never really considered a proper Beatles album among people I've met and know (I'm not sure if anyone else does?) but I do because for me the Beatles' music on here is just amazing, there's some seriously strong material (obviously excluding the film score, which I enjoy just because of the nostalgia linked with it but I could understand how some may not like it as much). I really do recommend this to anyone who's looking for some brilliant Beatles music and also bear in mind that some of the songs that are in the film aren't on this (like Eleanor Rigby and Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds for example) but they can be found on The Beatles' other records.
Obviously this is a brilliant product because it's the Beatles and any collection of the group's albums would be incomplete without Yellow Submarine, but I've never really thought of YS as a 'proper' album - in terms of EMI's reissuing of the back catalogue maybe they should have stuck with the original intended format of an EP? Still, the four 'original' songs are great
Strange collection of songs and instrumentals - the soundtrack of the film. I'm sure it sold well just because it had the Beatles' name on the album but a lot of the music,especially the instrumentals is pretty average. I say this as a Beatles fanatic. You would be better buying the newer Yellow Submarine album with different mixes and remastering - maybe not true to the film but a lot more enjoyable.
