I have thought about the same thing about Beatles For Sale . This album is definitely underrated. We must remember that the Beatles themselves had a very tight time schedule, with World tour and live performances, TV shows etc. The pressure on them was extreme. Beatlemania was taking its’ toll. And the drugs the Beatles used to manage that pressure made the matters worse for them. EMI also wanted the album to be released on time for Christmas sale, and I think that made extra pressure on the group. Yes, the Beatles had to make cover versions of 1950’s rock’n’roll songs, but the cover versions were really great. Personally, I find the Beatles’ version of Rock’n’Roll Music greater than Chuck Berry’s original version, and the Beatles’ version of Words Of Love greater than Buddy Holly’s original version. 

Personally I think this album is underrated because it was made by the Beatles. If it had been made by any other group, I don’t think it would be underrated the same way.

BFS is the album that I grew to appreciate the most out of the albums. I used to think it was a dip of sorts, a breather after AHDN , before they moved onto Help . But there’s so much gold on there. Any other band would like to have this in their canon.
