TJR says

Clocking in at an unsexy NINETY FOUR minutes, the tenth Beatles LP could do with being severely trimmed. The first and last sides are strongest, the flabbiness is in the middle. My own svelte 10 track, 35 minutes edit registers an “8.15” – Revolution 1 / The Continuing Story Of Bungalow Bill / Dear Prudence / Happiness Is A Warm Gun / Helter Skelter / Back In The U.S.S.R. / Blackbird / Don’t Pass Me By / Birthday / Good Night. This would be worthy of being classed up there with the career-high, “Revolver”. I mean, why have a gristly lamb chop when you’ve got prime beef fillet in the fridge? I’d avoid the weeping tiger steaks mind. A man's got to have some principles.
