The Beatles: I Blew My Cool Through The New York Times

Richard Goldstein, Village Voice, The, 20 July 1967

IF BEING A critic were the same as being a listener I could just enjoy Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Other than one cut which I detest ('Good Morning, Good Morning'), I find the album better than 80 per cent of the music around today; It is the other 20 per cent (including the best of the Beatles' past performances) which worries me as a critic.

Total word count of piece: 1921
