3 stars Help is the fifth full-length studio album by British pop/ rock act The Beatles. The album was as all earlier releases by the band produced by George Martin and recorded at the Abbey Road Studios in London. There are 14 songs on the album. Seven of them appear in the Help movie and seven doesn´t. The same model used for the A Hard Day´s Night (1964) album

The music is still rather simple pop/ rock influenced by the American r´n´b tradition that The Beatles loved so much but new influences were beginning to sneak into the music too. Some of the songs are as a result much more sophisticated than on earlier releases by the band. A song like Ticket to Ride features some pretty advanced harmony vocals and the beautiful ballad Yesterday also features a new level of sophistication in the song writing department.

The level of musicianship is increasing with each album and considering that Help is the fifth album in released in little over two years the band´s development is pretty amazing. The Beatles were never virtuosic musicians but their compositional skills are unquestionable.

The production is the best they´ve had up until then.

Help is a good album by The Beatles and I greatly enjoy listening to it. A sure 3 star rating from me.
