... Alas, the same level of success was not obtained when the band released their third movie, ‘The Magical Mystery Tour’; sure it was kooky and sort of funny hour long motion picture and is regarded as a bit of a cult classic by people like Spielberg now-a-days but when it was first released, ...

'Roll Up! Roll Up For The Mystery Tour!' Review with images

AdvantagesMy favourite Beatles soundtrack and bursting with energy

DisadvantagesThere are a couple of dud moments...

"...released their third movie, ‘The Magical Mystery Tour’; sure it was kooky and sort of funny hour long motion picture and is regarded as a bit of a cult classic by people like Spielberg now-a-days but when it was first released, ‘The Magical Mystery Tour’ was too different to seriously compete with the loveable earlier movies of ‘A Hard Day’s Night’ and ‘Help!’ and fans just found it all a bit too peculiar for words. Thankfully, the band still ..." Read review

The Beatles' home movie soundtrack

AdvantagesIt's a Beatles record, of course!

DisadvantagesRather short on playing time

"...so what. It's the Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour, innit?" Note - 'quality and consistency of tracks'. Can I have somewhere 'twixt 'Flawless' and 'A couple of weak links', Mr and Mrs ciao? Pretty please? Oh, all right then. By the way, I've never seen the film myself. As they came to my home county of Devon to shoot most of it (apparently John Lennon had a strop after their bus got stuck on a narrow Dartmoor bridge), I'm slightly ashamed. One ..." Read review

Elementary penguin singing Hare Krishna, man...

AdvantagesA great collection of songs.

DisadvantagesVery short.

"...Ordinary Coach Trip into a MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR. If you let yourself go, the Magicians will tkae you awya to marvellous places. Maybe YOU'VE been on a MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR without even realising it. Are you ready to go? SPLENDID! So starts the booklet for "Magical Mystery Tour". For those not in the know, "Magical Mystery Tour" started off as a (not very good really) 50 minute fil made for television. Originally it was Paul's own baby project, ..." Read review

Criminally Underrated

AdvantagesSheer brilliance from, unarguably, the greatest band of all time.

DisadvantagesUnder-rated :-(

"...begin to realise how good Magical Mystery Tour is. Add to those two "I am The Walrus", "The Fool on the Hill" and "Hello Goodbye", and there's a solid base of great songs. Take into consideration that the rest of the album is damn fine too, and you should need no further prompting: this album is massively, criminally, under-rated. It starts with the title track. Trumpet fanfares blaze, Ringo goes berserk and John and Paul sing silly lyrics. ..." Read review

Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, Olympic Sound Studios, De Lane Lea and Chappell Recording Studios, London, England between November 24, 1966 and November 7, 1967.
The first six songs on MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR were the soundtrack to the Beatles' TV movie of the same name. The film was an experimental mess, but the experimental pop of the album included some of their most memorable productions. The soundtrack side was dominated by Paul McCartney pop tunes, including the bittersweet piano ballad "Fool On The Hill" and "Your Mother Should Know," an impossibly catchy bit of Vaudevillian pop. But it also featured George Harrison's mystical "Blue Jay Way" (about his house in Hollywood) and John Lennon's "I Am The Walrus," which wedded a stream-of-consciousness lyric to a fierce drum beat, layers of strings, odd voices and some dialogue from Shakespeare's "King Lear."
McCartney's "Hello Goodbye," which led off the assorted singles, featured some neatly arranged contrapuntal vocals, and may well have been about the dissolving partnerships (songwriting and otherwise) between McCartney and Lennon. Lennon's strangely arranged "Strawberry Fields Forever," whose two halves blend different takes of the same song, one slowed down to match the pitch of the other, was a trippy reverie; its bridges, orchestrated with horns, cellos, and backward cymbals, are sheer brilliance. "Penny Lane," a wistful fantasy featuring a beautiful trumpet solo, was McCartney at his melodic best, the AM foil to Lennon's FM headiness.
Album Reviews Q - Included in Q Magazine's "Best Psychedelic Albums of All Time" issue.
Q - "...the weirdest beast in the entire Beatles catalogue....As good an indicator as any that all the madness was about to end. It had to."
Paste - "With much better material and no forced concept to weigh down the proceedings, Martin's production work shines, particularly on the Lennon tracks."
Q (8/89) - Included in Q Magazine's "Best Psychedelic Albums of All Time" issue.
Q (8/99, p.138) - "...the weirdest beast in the entire Beatles catalogue....As good an indicator as any that all the madness was about to end. It had to."

There isn't a big McCartney love song (we do get the next best thing though) and Ringo sings! (*)
Pulps strength is in the song lyrics. Some of the tunes are very catchy.
