Usually, when I see reviews of the Yellow Submarine album, they say it's not a very good album, because half of it is crappy incidental music.
I don't think this is a fair judgment. As a fan of very many different types of music, I'm aware that the score is of the Neoclassical genre, and it's a very high-quality, well-composed example at that. I think the problem is, it's not classical music fans that are judging the score, but rather, it's rock fans judging classical music. Of course most of them are not going to like it! They're expecting Beatles songs, and they're getting classical music! But the score, including side 2 of the Yellow Submarine album, "A Beginning", and the as-yet-unreleased-on-record Liverpool/Ringo's House music, are very fun to listen to, in my opinion.
What are your opinions of George Martin's score for the Yellow Submarine film?
