'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

Magical melody tour

AdvantagesSeveral all time classics numbers

DisadvantagesNot really a proper album, more a collection

"The thing that attracted me to the fab fours music was just that - their music. It's in the tunes - their lyrics are good, sometimes brilliant, sometimes mediocre. But the tunes, compositions and harmonies are the best I've heard. Its magic to my ears. Though this album was seemingly flung together almost as an afterthought to coincide with the apparently dire film of the same name, it contains several stunners. Notably Strawberry Fields Forever, ..." Read review
