    Best BEATLES Album evah... ???

    I assume this has been asked before?! Anyway, tell me all about your favourite Album of the Fab Four ... to me it's "Revolver" ... and I think "Sgt. Pepper" is way overrated ...

    Revolver or Rubber Soul. It's a toss-up for me.

    That is just too hard! Every one of their albums had something that made it special and unique. I chose The White Album, because even after all these years, when I listen to it, I hear something I didn't hear before.

    And this thread is very timely.....I just got tickets to see Paul McCartney in November

    Funny. I'm the 3rd person of 3 posters to think 'Revolver' was their best!

    And yes, I thought that 'Sgt. Pepper' was overrated. But Rolling Stone magazine always rates it as the #1 rock/pop album of all time.

    BTW, I also like the OTT 'White Album'. I remember reading that George Martin (sp?) their manager, wanted to trim the album down to 14- 16 songs, but the Beatles said 'no'.

    Hard Day's Night for the individual tracks, and either Revolver or Rubber Soul for the album as a whole being greater than the sum of its parts.

    I don't think Sgt. Pepper was over-rated in 1967, and it's still a great concept album ... but I don't think it stands the test of time quite as well as some other works.

    For me it's Rubber Soul. Funny, because I never owned a copy. A girl next door to me in my freshman dorm had it, and I borrowed it--for a loooong time. But I did return it.

    Rubber Soul. For me it's all downhill after that.

    Rubber Soul for me too. It was the first Beatles Album to show their growth and sophistication (although there were signs of it in "Help"). And I think it's the first one to use the sitar in a song (Norwegian Wood).

    But I love them all.

    It's hard to choose--it's always between Abbey Road and Revolver with me. But Abbey Road is my fave.

    For me, it's Yesterday and Today

    Consistantly great. A transitional LP from teeny bopper pop to psychedelica.

    Got a good reason for taking the easy way out...indeed


    Side one

    1."Drive My Car" – 2:30
    2."I'm Only Sleeping" – 3:01
    3."Nowhere Man" – 2:45
    4."Doctor Robert" – 2:15
    5."Yesterday" – 2:08
    6."Act Naturally" (Morrison–Russell) – 2:33


    Side two

    7."And Your Bird Can Sing" – 2:01
    8."If I Needed Someone" (George Harrison) – 2:24
    9."We Can Work It Out" – 2:15
    10."What Goes On" (Lennon–McCartney–Richard Starkey) – 2:51
    11."Day Tripper" – 2:50

    This was a hard one, Rubber Soul, Revolver and the White Album are all up there as my favorites, but I think I was just a bit more obsessed with Rubber Soul when I was 16 than I was with the other two.

    All great albums though...

    Remember, the UK LPs and the US LPs had different song line-ups on them until St. Pepper. My own favorite is Revolver. "Tomorrow Never Knows" was so innovative for its time.

    Well, I consider the UK releases to be the "real" albums... But that's probably due to the fact that I wasn't alive when the Beatles were in their heyday in the US.

    I chose the White Album as my favorite. But, there were songs on all albums that I love. I still remember being 10 years old and hearing "I Want to Hold Your Hand" for the first time. I remember The Ed Sullivan Show and girls swooning.

    As Mona Lisa Vito would say - "It's impossible to answer. Nobody could answer that question!"

    Well, except some of you did.

    But anyway, I can't choose one. I just can't. They are all so totally brilliant. I love their early albums like the album KHenry14 listed, Please Please Me, With the Beatles, Beatles for Sale - all the earliest Capitol records. They hold such memories for me, like standing on the front porch air guitaring with a tennis racket with 3 of my friends playing the other Beatles, singing at the top of our lungs. I still have these albums and I still play them over and over. I love Magical Mystery Tour because it has Penny Lane on it. White Album holds a fascination for me because of the Charles Manson connection. Rubber Soul and Revolver are both to die for. Sorry, I am just so passionate about their music - they burst onto the scene during my most impressionable years.

    I can list a few that would NOT be my favorites: Let It Be, Abbey Road, and Sgt. Pepper.

    I voted for Revolver. I'm surprised so many people did because it didn't have as many single hits as some of the others, but it was when they were first starting to experiment and getting into some interesting sounds.

    I also still like Magical Mystery Tour. I never saw the movie, it didn't sound too good, but I liked songs like Blue Jay Way (I could feel the fog) and I Am the Walrus was just strange. The whole thing reminded me of people at a pot party who had had some wine or beer. Very late sixties.

    I also really like that album. "Your Mother Should Know" is one of my favorite Beatles songs.

    If I can pick only one, it's "Sgt. Pepper".
