Release Date: 1964 | Tracklist

Review Summary: Listen to this album and you won't have a hard day's night.

With two albums under their belt, one good and one, not so good, the Beatles finally start to become their own band in layman's terms finding their stride. With their third album called A Hard Day's Night, they finally started to get into their own swing and started to make some truly good music. And what's more, they finally released an album with no covers on it! Thank goodness! The whole half an album being covers thing was starting to get a little old so this time Paul Ringo and and George are here to dazzle us with an album that is completely their very own!

You might find upon starting this album a cacaphony of a chord at the beginning of the self titled song, A Hard Day's Night. What is interesting to note is that this chord was actually a mystery to all from when it was first released all the way until a mathmatics professor decoded it using math to unscramble the musical frequencies. It turns out that everybody had the basics right, a simple Cadd9 chord but apparently they played it on several instruments and looped it over and over, and there was a piano hidden back there in that mix that nobody could figure out for decades. Chalk it up to one of the great Beatles' mysteries!

After that is one of my personal favorite Beatles' songs titled I Should Have Known Better featuring a harmonica and a great catchy chorus/bridge. The only thing that they need to work on is their soloing because it hasn't quite gotten good enough yet but this will be fixed it in later albums. Another highlight includes Can't Buy Me Love and Happy Just to Dance With You, and last but not least, Any Time At All. Overall it isn't the best pop Beatles album but it is definitely one of the best and certainly better than the first two albums, especially Please Please Me. But they can only go up from here.

To back up tyr, you spelt cacophony wrong. You spelt it 'Cacaphony'. Also, please stop reviewing. Your second paragraph was terrible. You just found a fact online and wrote a paragraph about it, without relating it to the review at all.
