I'm voting off Walrus. I like it but MMT is a slice of melodic brilliance with great tempo changes and excellent dynamics. Like Tom, I think Walrus is a bit undercooked and flat sounding. Lennon later complained that his songs weren't getting as much time dedicated to them as Paul's songs and I think it shows here.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Same here, as it’s a superior song to the admittedly good MMT!

MMT is a pleasant mid-to-low tier Beatles tune.

Walrus, on the other hand, is immense and sullied only by its association with the absolute barrel-scraping nadir of Beatles "product" and schlock:

Walrus is the best Beatles song 67 and on.
We reach the parts other combos cannot reach
We beach the beachheads other armies cannot beach
We speak the tongues other mouths cannot speak
