Pitchfork
Rather than an accurate document of an evening with the pre-fame Beatles, Please Please Me works more like a DJ mix album– a truncated, idealized teaser for their early live shows. More than any other of their records, Please Please Me is a dance music album. […]

The Telegraph
After everything that has been said about the band, imbuing them with an almost supernatural hue, it is always amazing to hear them on their debut, just a sharp, fresh, rock and roll band, the savage young Beatles. […]

BBC
But the grandest oak begins as the tiniest acorn, and Please Please Me is just that: perfectly formed for what it is, and ready to split when promise is realised. […]
