It's rare to hear this about an album by The Fab Four, but I think HELP is underrated. 

But, the choice is naturally obvious to me for the weakest link, so I'll act upon it.

"It's Only Love" is nothing special. "Act Naturally" features very good lead by Ringo. Artistic.

Completely agreed with RangeRover. Voting against It's Only Love. Act Naturally at least is in my view (despite being a cover) Ringo's quintessential song, so at least that has it going for it - for now

 "It's Only Love"

Like the song but it doesn't stand up to the other cuts.

Damn, am surprised to see so much ambivalence for It's Only Love. That's one of my favorite songs on the album.

I think maybe it's because I'm an acoustic guitar player and I really like the bright and fun acoustic part for this song:

Really like some of the chord changes too.

Exactly. Ringo even sounds kinda "country".

Yep, not many people like it.

Ditto here. I know Lennon despised the song. But it is one of my faves as  well.

From here on out it's going to get really difficult. "Help" is currently my favorite Beatles album. I LOVE "It's Only Love". I'm going to have to vote to remove "Act Naturally". I've never really liked the song, despite it being in Ringo's comfort zone(he loves country music).

Yeah it  was. Plus it was the last Beatles album that followed the formula from as far back as Please Please Me by ending the album with John screaming a rocker.

Dizzy Miss Lizzy is too damn fine of a rocker to go just yet
