* EstablishingCharacterMoment: "Don't Bother Me", as his first song, establishes quite a bit of Music/GeorgeHarrison's musical persona. The lyrics, besides fitting in with his "quiet Beatle" image, are a bit of an AntiLoveSong, in contrast to what Lennon and [=McCartney=] were doing at the time, showing him to be lyrically adventurous. Then that's coupled with a minor-chorded Latin-style feel, showing him to be the Beatle most open to foreign musical influences and non-standard sounds.


The album was listed at nr. #53 in Magazine/RollingStone's [[UsefulNotes/RollingStone500GreatestAlbumsOfAllTime 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time]].
