as great as it is, I still prefer the follow-up ‘With The Beatles ‘… in fact, you could say that just about each album here on up until the end got better… that being said, they sure got outta the gate in a fury with this debut… Ringo’s out of his mind on this album…:-)
I prefer Please Please Me . I’ve said as much before, but it’s remarkable how good the album is for a debut, and holds strong against the likes of AHDN . I listen to it quite a lot. The original content and the covers blend together well and there’s always positive energy in the tracks. Can’t really fault it.

In ranking the canon of 13 albums I put Please Please Me at #11 saying of it: “Raw and charming. New meets old in seamless unity. Groundbreaking.”
Unless Paul McCartney knocks on my door I am unlikely to be impressed.
