3 stars "Yellow Submarine" is the 10th full-length studio album by UK rock act The Beatles. The album was released through Apple Records in January 1969. Itīs a soundtrack album to the animated film of the same name, which premiered in London in July 1968. The Beatles never counted it as a full-length studio album, but it is widely considered as that in the bandīs discography.

Side one of the original LP features 6 tracks by The Beatles including the title track which had already appeared on the "Revolver (1966)" album and "All You Need Is Love" which had appeared on the "All You Need Is Love (1967)" single and on the US/Canada only "Magical Mystery Tour (1967)" album release. Side 2 is a re-recording of the classical soundtrack to the "Yellow Submarine" movie composed and arranged by producer George Martin.

So if you exclude the classical music tracks there are actually only 4 new original Beatles tracks featured on the album. Those tracks are of the usual high quality that weīve come to expect from The Beatles, but 4 tracks arenīt much when you have to pay full price for the album. The George Martin material is well composed, but itīs also a bit too safe and nice. Somewhere between a 2.5 - 3 star (55%) rating is warranted.

UMUR | 3/5 |
