FAV TRACKS: A Taste of Honey, Misery, I Saw Her Standing There, Please Please Me, Do You Want To Know A Secret

If I don't review The Beatles, how am I reviewing albums at all? Well, now I am! I made it this far!

This is the album that kicked off this legendary band! It's just catchy rock and roll and we all love it! Overall, this was very fun to listen to.

Fav Tracks: Twist And Shout, I Saw Her Standing There, Boys, Please Please Me, Love Me Do, Chains, A Taste Of Honey, Ask Me Why
