Yellow Submarine is exactly the same as it appears on Revolver, and it’s a fun trippy song. I like the intro more than the bulk of the song though. I think it’s semi-lame that it’s literally the exact same track, instead of a rerecording. Only A Northern Song is kind of wacky and doesn’t seem to know what it wants to be doing. All Together Now is cheesy fun, sounds like a merry band of pirates. Hey Bulldog has a pretty neat chorus and riff, but the guitar solo doesn’t do anything for me.

It’s All Too Much is a fantastic jam song, one of the cooler songs the band has done in my opinion. All You Need Is Love is kind of neat, but it actually kind of grates on my nerves for being too happy or sappy. I honestly have trouble getting through the song sometimes. Not to mention that the verse is the best part but is barely there, and it’s another song lifted straight out of an earlier album. Pepperland is a neat intro track. Sea Of Time is pretty nice, has a lot of fun melodies.

Sea Of Holes is not that interesting to listen to. Sea Of Monsters brings back some of the melodies from before, it’s fairly cool. March Of The Meanies is aggressive and cool. Pepperland Laid Waste has some neat instrumentation. Yellow Submarine In Pepperland is basically a symphonic version of the title track, which is kind of cool. I have no idea why they didn’t use this to do a rerecorded version. This album has some fun moments, but I mostly just forget it exists.

Final Rating: 6.5/10
