She said: "Revolver is the best Beatles album. It doesn't overwhelmingly rock, roll or pop because its strategy is to transport the listener to the until-then uninhabited space between all three via melodic aggressiveness and sonic inventiveness." I said: "Who put all those thoughts in your head? It's got Yellow Submarine, for Christ's sake. And that strategy meant they took their eye off the ball lyrically and out popped Good Day Sunshine and Doctor Robert. (Let's just ignore the Harrison lyrics)." She said: "No, no, no, you're wrong. What sounds like filler or a lack of cohesion is the embodiment of the main theme: alienation. Listen again to how many of the songs take a side-on approach to loneliness and people talking past each other. As standalone songs, they're crystal clear, but together they jar. That's deliberate." I said: "Even though you know what you know, you're wrong." She said: "Then how come you're using one of their songs as a framing device for your review?" I said: "..."

One of the most influential albums of all time and the point where the Beatles started changing the game. Tomorrow Never Know’s is perhaps one of the greatest finale’s on any album.

A dynamic album with top notch production value. There is a fair amount of experimentation with stereo sound, instrumentation and arrangements. When used, the harmonies are excellent. The drum lines simple and true. Individual songs differ enough from one another so as to not make for a monotone collection. There are pop-hooks a plenty, making fans of first-time listeners.

Just a damn great album. Just ... just so great. If I didn't have a soft spot for the sheer quirkiness of "Rubber Soul", "Revolver" would be my #1 Beatles album. Great songwriting, performances, production, and arrangments from top to bottom. Hands down, one of the all-time greats of rock and roll.

This album scores highly purely on innovation and influence but when you add the quality of songs that feature on this album (minus Yellow Submarine) it gets full marks. Lyrically it’s probably their best work - “wearing a face that she keeps in a jar by the door.” 👌 The Beatles at their songwriting and creative peak, I love this album.

Here are The Beatles about to leap headlong into their new psychedelic personas. From the backwards guitar solo on Taxman to… the backwards guitar on Tomorrow Never Knows, the band is firing on all four cylinders. Everyone has their spotlight songs, and the album shows a group taking their first real step into the unknown.

One of the greatest albums of all time. You can hear the seeds of experimentation which would explode the next year in Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. This album represents a huge leap forward musically, and technologically as the Beatles began using the studio as an instrument in itself.

Finishing this classics week with a BANG. I've been looking forward to the day we'd get a Beatles album for months now, and here we are starting with my favorite! Revolver is such an unbelievable piece of art. The recording techniques are still mind-blowing by today's standards, and the genre exploration is such a welcome reprieve from the band's earlier work. There are, frankly, too many hits on here. I could list them, or you could literally just read the tracklist. Eleanor Rigby?? Taxman?? This is also home to one of my all-time favorite songs ever made, "Tomorrow Never Knows." What a dazzling, mystifying piece of music. And of course there's also "Here, There and Everywhere," famously sampled by Frank Ocean on Blonde. "She Said, She Said," reworked by the Black Keys. It's an experimental pop rock album, and it still manages to be a hit parade. As cliche as Beatles praise has become, it's almost frightening how good their albums like this are. This was made in 1966. Who was anywhere near this in 1966? We've heard so many rock albums on this list from that decade and decades after, and it's crazy how this holds up compared to any and all peers. This could never get less than a perfect score from me. Favorite tracks: Tomorrow Never Knows, Love You To, Taxman, Eleanor Rigby, Got to Get You Into My Life, Here There Everywhere, She Said She Said. Album art: Definitely iconic. I don't know what my favorite cover from the Beatles is honestly, but it isn't likely this one. Still, I can't escape it. 5/5

This album blows my mind. Every single time. This is a pop/rock album, right? But here's Eleanor Rigby, a piece of chamber music with pop lyrics; Love to You, with its tabla and sitar; Yellow Submarine, which feels like something written for Sesame Street; For No One, backed only by piano, percussion, and French horn; and Tomorrow Never Knows which still sounds, in 2021, like it's from the future. The rest of the songs are more traditional rock and pop but they are an eclectic mix that I find difficult to place in a specific time period. Here, There and Everywhere sounds like 1960 Beatles. Got to Get You Into My Life sounds like 1970s Wings (which is honestly ok with me). Here is a short list of the things on this album that make me exclaim, "Are you kidding me?" to these geniuses when I listen to Revolver: The too slow countdown + cough + in tempo countdown that open Taxman and the guitar solo in the middle. The psychedelic fuzzy guitar on She Said She Said. The staggered entrances of the instruments and vocals at the beginning of Good Day Sunshine and the change to the melody on "Sunshine" the last time through the chorus. The way the bass and the piano play with each other on I Want to Tell You. The entirety of Tomorrow Never Knows. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? This is my favorite Beatles album.

I kind of wish I were listening to the Beatles albums in order, to follow their evolution, but it's also interesting to look at each album as a snapshot of one point in time, and to hear the familiar and unfamiliar songs in their original collections together. I do remark how this album represented an exploration of what it meant to craft recordings in a studio as its own thing, as opposed to capturing a group performance. I wouldn't really have noticed that if I hadn't read about it, but it's quite interesting to me to learn the details and innovations they came up with. I loved all the songs, from the very familiar to the less. I'm sure there would be a different favorite every time I listened. Today, unpredictably, it was "Got to Get You Into My Life."

For about 15 years, I believed, and would argue, that this is the best Beatles album. I'm less certain now - purely because so many are brilliant, but it still feels like the balance of pop and experimentation is so perfect on this album, at least for me. It really isn't worth going track by track with the Beatles, as you'd almost believe every song is a single, such is their impact. It's perfect, or so near it doesn't matter anyway.

This is a beautiful album of artwork and I always enjoy listening to it. It's not even my all-time top fave Beatles album but it's still deserving of 5 stars. I love where these songs take my imagination and I had a great time listening to some classic genius song-writing which did in fact change the direction of pop music inspiring millions globally. Well done Beatles love you long time.

Maybe it's because I'm not a huge Beatles fan, or maybe it's because I hate "Yellow Submarine" with a burning passion. Either way, I thought this album was average, and I initially wanted to rate it 3 stars. However, I acknowledge that "Revolver" contains a few classic hits, such as "Eleanor Rigby" and the other song I mentioned. I was also pleasantly surprised by "Love You To," which I've never heard before. Therefore, I'll give this album 4 stars.

I did enjoy listening to this album, having never fully listened to any Beatles albums from beginning to end. Only knowing a few of their major singles, this definitely felt more psychedelic/experimental than perhaps their earlier work. Especially with the sitar and other instruments. It seemed obvious that they were on some good drugs around the time of recording this album. Controversial opinion - didn't care too much for Yellow Submarine. Best: Taxman; Elenor Rigby Worst: Here, There and Everywhere

I have never been a true Beatles fan. Maybe it's because when I was able to "get into them" I was too busy getting into "better" bands like Led Zepplin, Rush, and Van Halen. Anytime I listened to them I thought they were just a lighter version of that and never impressed me. But any time I really dove into a song, I tended to like it for the most part. I'm very excited that we have finally gotten an Beatles album on this list so I have an excuse to listen to them and this one didn't dissapoint. With classics like Elanor Rigby and Yellow Submarine (is it the true version?) I was hooked. Even the lesser knowns were enjoyable. I actually ended up listening to the album twice over and I can confidently say I am a fan. I have no ranking of the beatles albums but since this is the first I've fully listened to, I'll say, for now, it's my favorite. Super strange and cool album cover, something I'm sure they made while they were tripping on acid.

The Beatles seventh album is 5x platinum and regarded as the most innovative album in popular music. There's different musical styles, diverse sounds/instruments, new recording strategies, and great lyrics. The album is said to have inspired development of psychedelic rock, electronica, progressive rock and world music. The vibe the band was going for on this album, was sounds that weren't possible during live shows and ones that sounded otherworldly. The album accomplished this and it still holds up today as being extremely rich in different sounds, while holding up that pop rhythm. Furthermore, the album captured the spirit of the times which was progressive social and cultural changes - especially in London which during recording was regarded as a cultural capital. This is the first time I have listened to this album all the way through and I have to agree it sounds pretty epic!

Naturally, very familiar with this one as well already. Between “Rubber Soul” and “Revolver”, my dad educated me about the Beatles in my early teens. As such, both have special places in my heart, though if I had to choose between the two, I’d lean “Rubber Soul”. That is in no way any sort of indictment on “Revolver”. This album is also a stone-cold classic.

Quite cool. It has some good songs.

Bit overrated in my personal opinion. Like BTS but ugly and average

Stunning. The lyrics, the artistry, the variety, the production. A band unafraid to try new things but who take the fans with them. Taxman is a great rock track; Eleanor Rigby is a maudlin, poetic chamber pop track; I’m Only Sleeping a trippy, hippy sixties indie track; Tomorrow Never Knows experimental almost trip hop/dance Indian vibe… and it all works and sounds incredible. Perhaps the album that shows the world The Beatles as artists, making great works of art - more than just a great band. Side note- I nearly docked a star for the insufferable, anodyne, tiresome Yellow Submarine - but, hey, that would of been churlish of me!

Is this their best album? Maybe. The Beatles are cool. Even people who don't "like" the Beatles have to appreciate them. Those who say they don't at least appreciate them (or acknowledge their greatness) are just trying to be "different" or "cool" - but they aren't. Kickin' bass lines throughout this one Paul - way to go.

I mean. Come on. This record. Hoooooooo boy. I've listened to all the Beatles studio albums so many times that I can hum the pitch of the first note of any song, based on hearing the end of the previous song in the track listing. Not a brag, just an indicator of how well I know these records. The Beatles are my favorite band and a lot of what I like about my other favorite bands can be traced back to something the Beatles did "first." I can't pick a favorite Beatles record (not for a lack of trying) and Revolver is in the group of their best that make the task impossible. This is also the record where their guitar tones got wild. I've always loved how thin and piercing the distorted guitars are on this record, and that continues with Sgt. Pepper and the White Album (not many guitars on Magical Mystery Tour). It took me a long time to get into other great 60s bands (The Kinks, Beach Boys, etc.) because I held them all to the standard that the Beatles set. No band produced such an consistently high level of quality through their entire career. 12 records in 6 years. That's all it was. Highlights: So hard to pick just a few, but...McCartney's lead guitar and noodle-y bass runs on "Taxman;" The story and strings on "Eleanor Rigby;" the perfectly-captured sleepiness on "I'm only sleeping;" the giant leap forward of "Tomorrow Never Knows."

What hit me upon this return to Revolver is the textural variety the Beatles aim for across the album as a whole. By this point their songcraft is rock solid, so it’s a case of seeing what else they can add, or how they can twist it: the pulsing strings of Eleanor Rigby, the swirling pseudo-Indian She Said She Said, the bursting sunshine horns of Got to Get you into my Life. These embellishments are thrown into sharp relief by reverting back to the guitar,guitar, bass, drums and harmonies of the classic sound, which underpins the whole record. In this context of experiment with sonic texture even the sore thumb of Yellow Submarine doesn’t stick out quite so much.

When i first got really into the Beatles, i couldn't get into this album. I've since come around, but there are still some real stinkers on here. "Dr. Robert" might be the worst Beatles song. I almost demoted this to 4 stars just because of that song

I often fall on the Alan Partridge trap of listening to ‘The Best of The Beatles’ and inevitably miss out on rediscovering songs that would be the pinnacle of most bands’ careers. Revolver is full of these, in particular Tomorrow Never Knows, Taxman, I’m Only Sleeping, and Got to Get You Into My Life. 5 stars in spite of Yellow Submarine.

👍

All these songs are great (what's with the Yellow Submarine hate?), but the standouts are Eleanor Rigby (haunting lyrics, simple yet effective), I'm Only Sleeping (psychedelic rock groove), Here, There, and Everywhere (an amazingly beautiful and refreshing love song), Got to Get You Into My Life (a super catchy tune), and Tomorrow Never Knows (the psychedelic piece de resistance). I guess my only "complaint" would be that Paperback Writer and Rain, two great songs from the Revolver sessions that were released as a single a few months before Revolver, aren't on the album but this is understandable since it was typical Beatles practice to not include single songs on the album.

Its definitely 5 stars, I would be lying to myself if it was any lower. But at the same time a couple of the songs can be annoying at times. I actually enjoy Yellow Submarine which is contrary to other reviews on this site, but I need to be in a really good mood to enjoy Good Day Sunshine, otherwise its a straight skip. Same story with Dr. Robert, who's backstory is way more interesting than the song itself. That being said, the 5 stars is warrant because I love half the songs to death and enjoy the rest. I particularly love Tomorrow Never Knows instrumentation and sonic sound. Also there's 3 songs from George which is fantastic as he's my favourite Beatle. On a side note, the album cover is their best, even better than Sgt. Pepper. I feel like all but one or two Beatles albums on this list will be 5 stars. It's kind of annoying at times they're too good. Then again if you've sold the most records in history, what else do you expect.

When I made the return to Vinyl from my journey through the tape, CD, MP3 and streaming this was the first album I bought. Originally I listened to this as a kid on my Dad's copy which was well worn by the time I got hold of it. I was surprised how much the pops, crackles, little jumps etc were etched in my brain. Almost 40 years later and my new copy didn't have any of these, still sounded awesome. I feel for anyone who hasn't had that analogue experience. Don't get me wrong the pure unadulterated digital has its place as well. A classic all the way, even those that doubt Yellow Submarine, I was 5 when I first listed and that was my fav and got me hooked don't forget that the Beatles are a band for all time and all people.

Revolver is a band at the peak of their powers as a collective but also as individuals, where everything is in balance. The result is a pop/rock album of seismic proportions covering all sorts of musical ideas, stylistic ground and psychedelia.

Had not listened to this before, but had heard about half the songs previously. It has a great album cover! My favorite song on this album, and possibly of the Beatles, is "Eleanor Rigby." I read on the Wikipedia page that the string octet was inspired by the soundtrack to PSYCHO. I love that soundtrack so I guess it isn't such a surprise I love this song. I also already loved the songs "Taxman," "Here, There and Everywhere," "Yellow Submarine," "Good Day Sunshine," "And Your Bird Can Sing" and "Got To Get You Into My Life" (which rivals Eleanor Rigby for my favorite Beatles song). The rest of the album was new and I liked them on first listen. Probably my favorite of the new songs were "Doctor Robert." The song seems to imply this doctor might not be completely on the level... "For No One" stood out to me. I also found "Tomorrow Never Knows" to be an amazing end to the album. I love its epic psychedelic structure. It's easy to see why this was such an important and beloved album. It overflows with musical ideas and packs a huge punch for its relatively short runtime.

Its always great to get a Beatles isn't it? Obviously this is an incredibly accomplished album, but in the spirit of saving the 5*s for the hard hitters, this isn't my fave Beatles album. So is it a 4... hmm. I love how varied their style is in this, some classic rock, some more alt songs and then some that are a little twee. Ah fuck it its a 5

"Eleanor Rigby" was one of the first Beatles songs I heard. "She Said She Said" and "Here, There, and Everywhere" are two of my top favorite Beatles songs of all time. The sounds here are just the perfect blend of innovative and familiar. I get a sense of nostalgia listening to this record even though I was born in the 1990s. :)

Yeah the Beatles were pretty good, not gonna lie. Eleanor Rigby is probably my favorite song of theirs, but this album also has some other bangers like "Taxman", "Love You To", "Tomorrow Never Knows" and basically every other song (except Yellow Submarine). Gotta love that sitar. I'd be the first one to jump on the "Beatles are overrated" train (or submarine?), but that doesn't mean they weren't amazingly talented musicians. I have to give this a 5/5 or I'm being too strict with these ratings.

Along with Abbey Road and maybe Rubber Soul, I consider Revolver one of my favourite Beatles's albums. There's so much going on with a wide range of styles and an increased contribution from all the members. The Beatle's sound was rapidly evolving and after this album, the band settled into the studio and continued to expand and innovate their sound. This has a few hits (Taxman, Eleanor Rigby and Yellow Sub), but really it's a collection of lower key classics that makes this a very solid listen.

Por mucho tiempo (y quizá aún) Revolver fue mi álbum favorito de los Beatles: las razones abundan, pero una de las más importantes es que es un disco que me ofrece un poco de todo: cursilerías de McCartney, cosas oscuras de Lennon, las primeras composiciones 100% de Harrison, a Ringo cantando algo sacado de un viaje de LSD, instrumentación occidental y oriental, tracks en reversa, todo. Una de las características que lo hacen especial es que ya tenían tomada la decisión de no volver a hacer giras y eso le da a George Martin todo el espacio para igual tener en el estudio un octeto de cuerdas (¡como único acompañamiento de una canción de "Rock"!), un oboe, un corno francés, o de grabar las guitarras y luego meterlas a la mezcla final en reversa. Tratando de dilucidar cuál rola es mi favorita de este disco, llego a la conclusión de que es más fácil ubicar las dos que menos me gustan: "Yellow Submarine", que de cualquier forma tiene su ondita y es divertida de oír como pieza individual; y "I Want To Tell You", que siento como la menos interesante del disco, musicalmente hablando. Pero es que ahí están "For No One", "Good Day Sunshine" (que por cierto fue rankeada como la peor de ellos en cierto conteo), "And Your Bird Can Sing" y la cereza del pastel que es "Got To Get You Into My Life". No hay como aburrirse con este disco.

Sólo por tener a Eleanor Rigby se merece de menos 3 estrellas pero no, no es lo único excelente del disco. 14 canciones repartidas en 34 minutos y aún así son piezas bien redondeadas. Sin ser el más fan ni mucho menos un experto, creo que es un disco de transición entre el sonido inicial con el de la psicodelia porque no están mezclados, sino que están presentes en algunas canciones de manera independiente. Creo que ningún disco me había provocado clavarme y poner uno tras otro y éste sí lo logró. 4.5 estrellas que suben a 5 por esta razón. Songs: Eleanor Rigby, Got To Get You Into My Life, I´m Only Sleeping, For No One

For me, this is The Beatles’ best album. Their early stuff is great with the harmonies and simple but catchy tunes, then they released Rubber Soul and you got a hint that they were evolving into much more than just a pop band, and then Revolver came out and blew everyone away with the new ground that it broke. With Tomorrow Never Knows, She Said She Said, I’m Only Sleeping, and And Your Bird Can Sing, it’s a really strong album for John. Paul’s contributions to the album are a bit more mainstream but some of his strongest work as well, especially Here, There and Everywhere. George brings a couple of solid tunes as well with Taxman and I Want to Tell You (not so much with Love You To though - the album’s only miss really). It’s eclectic, and the songs just jump off the vinyl. They did great work after this of course, but Revolver was the transition point. 5 stars.

Best band forever. First album cover with no band name on it. Interested in Taxman song, because it is not talking about love. "Taxman" is a song by the English rock band the Beatles from their 1966 album Revolver. Written by the group's lead guitarist, George Harrison, with some lyrical assistance from John Lennon, it protests against the higher level of progressive tax imposed in the United Kingdom by the Labour government of Harold Wilson, which saw the Beatles paying over 90 per cent of their earnings to the Treasury. The song was selected as the album's opening track and contributed to Harrison's emergence as a songwriter beside the dominant Lennon–McCartney partnership. It was the group's first topical song and the first political statement they had made in their music.

This is the first of the Beatles "good albums." Definitely a lot more substance in the lyrics yet no cohesion throughout. It sounds like a bunch of great songs made in different sessions all crammed into one album. It's a rather joyful jaunt, but I'll never understand the name of the album. There are a few songs worth skipping on here - I forgot they existed. I'm only sleeping, bird can sing, dr. robert, and I want to tell you are meh. Tomorrow never knows is also meh, but I can see what they were doing - progressive for its time. The number of songs liked puts it at a 3, but for its time and for the good songs that are on here it gets bumped to 4. It's a good romp, but trim the fat, beatles. I also think maxwell's silver hammer would fit on this album.

It was pretty good. It seems a bit different than other Beatles albums, and those differences lead to an interesting experience. Although not specific to this album, the main problems in most songs were that each ear contained one instrument and that the songs were very "60's slow" in that they had that era-specific sluggish feeling to them. All in all, however, these problems don't plague this album like others.

Yes yes, as if this album hasn't been reviewed 3 million times already...ok ok ok top 10 album of all-time, highly influential, etc etc. So ... do I actually like it? No Beatles albums are anything less than interesting, even their (to me) very dated earliest material - this is where they started to get experimental, which is probably why as a little kid listening to some of these songs scared me a bit (musically the sitar freaked me out a bit; lyrically "Eleanor Rigby" especially was a trip - 'keeps her face in a jar' - the metaphor was way over my head). But...scary music sticks with you. Honestly, a fair number of the songs kind of bore me ("I'm Only Sleeping" and "Love You To") - but the best here are among the best songs....ever? "Good Day Sunshine" and "Got to Get You Into My Life" in particular are worthy of their fame. For me they got better after this, but this is the genesis of them steering away from their 50s influences (perhaps excepting "Here, There and Everywhere") and becoming the "weird Beatles" - which is my preference. 7/10 4 stars

The stereo panning can be a little jarring depending on what you’re listening on, but the melodies and instrumentation is top notch, of course. I enjoy the harmonies and the unique instrumentation. As a producer myself, I enjoy those little tricks that make the listening experience a little sweeter. The songs are really the difference. Obviously the quality is below current standards, but the songs still sound unique compared to the standard musical fare. There’s a reason why this record is so celebrated. I do not like Yellow Submarine for various reasons. Overall this was a good album, with many great moments. Maybe not the most accessible Beatles album, but one to check out nonetheless. You’re more than likely going to like it.

Controversial opinion time: this is a fine album by a fine band, and definitely warrants 4 stars. Not 5, 4. 4 is a great rating for an album, and if you had a 4-star album, your nips should tingle with pride. But it's not a 5-star album, and definitely not in the top 10 best albums of all time in the history of the world... ever!. It's a solid, fun piece of work that delights, but it has some filler and doesn't overwhelm the listener sufficiently to raise it to the most exalted pantheon. Prove me wrong! I know the history, of how this was one of the first albums to push the idea of the studio as instrument, and that it punctuated the Fabs' transition from superior pop quartet to psychedelic Shackletons. But the presence of Tomorrow Never Knows does not negate that And Your Bird Can Sing is filler, in that it's a slightly boring, fairly innocuous three-minuter that, well, fills a quarter of an inch on vinyl. Now, such a statement might make me sound as if I wish to be harsh towards this album, and I genuinely don't. I can happily accept that there's some topmost work on this. But exactly why is this so venerated? I can't suss that out. While I'm here, can I ask if I'm perverse for preferring Yellow Submarine to Eleanor Rigby? The former is a cheery little bit of jest from our mate Ringo, detailing the band's happy adventures under the sea, which is exactly what I want from the Beatles. The latter is an okay, slightly stodgy cut of mild pretentiousness that feels too slight for the subject matter, which is what I don't want from the Beatles. Also, is Taxman that popular a sentiment in this day and age? Who wants to hear about millionaires whinging that they might have to give up a chunk of their money Everest in order to pay for a few schools and hospitals? Am I that out of sync with the rest of the world? Why has a Beatles album led me to question the nature of the human race? And remember kids: John Lennon is still a bit of a tosser.

I can see how this was a predecessor to Sgt. Peppers—it shows experimentation but still has a cohesion that the later album lacks, in my opinion.

They play so well together, haha! Beetles have some amazing music. Good listen.

gevarieerd album. Oosterse klanken hier en daar, en niet te heel erg psychedelisch, maar de sitar is er toch net te veel aan.

Hadn't ever listened to this one before- not my favourite Beatles album but still enjoyable!

Hit or miss. Back half is better than front half (except for Elenore Rigby).

Honestly, this is not my favorite Beatles album. I don't even think it's in my top three. It's always confused me as to why people like this one more than the other ones. It's got killer album art, I'll give it that, but I don't find it nearly as catchy, influential, or as captivating as other Beatles records. Highlights: 2, 3, and 6.

It was ok, its a beatles album. Lots of playing with stereo sound and mixing was weird. Kinda sameish feeling on every song.

The Beatles are far more experimental than I'd ever known. I love that, you never know what you're gonna get from each new track. Some really delightful turns in here. Everything coming in at 3 mins or under so if you don't like it you've got something new to taste very soon. It's an experimental tasting menu and as always there's a bit too much celeriac puree in everything. By that I mean I feel there are more misses than hits in here. Real good fun though. Absolute nutters these guys.

Lilting, pre-psychedelia with some all-time classics. It's the Beatles - of course I was already familiar with several songs on this album but had never listened to it in it's entirety. The eastern-inspired instrumental arrangements on Love You To were a highlight. Tomorrow Never Knows is a fantastic closer and sounds well ahead of its time - no wonder really given the Chemical Brothers sampling of it in Setting Sun which didn't seem out of place in the 1990s.

Got Abbey Road before this, so this record doesn’t leave as good an impression.

52. Revolver - The Beatles 14 tracks. I know it's almost musical blasphemy to not like this album but it's so overrated. Yellow Submarine is a joke & Eleanor Rigby is.... unusual rather than fantastic. Taxman is great but I honestly don't get the hype. What a let-down. 3/5

I like the Indian influence in the tracks. I didn’t know the Beatles were so talented with vocal arrangements, that’s a pleasant surprise. I hadn’t listened to them much before. It’s my favorite Beatles album I’ve heard.

An intersectional Beatles LP - snippets of the past poppy and future psychedelic/rock-ripper directions all jumbled together in one album. Not the most cohesive product, but an interesting one at the very least

Most consistent album of theirs I've listened to, and a lot of good songs (Tomorrow Never Knows being great). Just misses out on 4 stars due to the vast majority being too short and simplistic verse/chorus/verse/chorus/finish.

I mean I get it, but I think I’m finally on the side of “The Beatles are overrated.” They absolutely made insane steps that changed the music industry forever, but you know I just don’t like them that much.

I’ve heard many people say this is their favorite Beatles album… and y can’t understand why, I mean the production is great and it is the album that features “I’m only sleeping”, “here there and everywhere” and “for no one” but damn, does anybody really like “love to you” or “dr Robert”? I don’t know it is really uneven, also, yellow submarine is cheesy and quite lame

Great use of other instruments for background parts. I was not a big fan of the Beatles before listening to this album, and my opinion has not changed much. I can acknowledge that it is quality music, but I don't particularly enjoy it.

I just really don't like the Beatles. Completely burned out on them. But this does get 1 additional star for Eleanor Rigby, which is a great song.

Enjoyed several songs but Got to get You into my life was a favorite. Not a Beatles fan or should I say groupie. Can’t name a band I have ever screamed, cried or lamented for. Better writers than singers.

I listened to it for study music, but it didn't make me wanna get up in front of the class and boogie down, so it is not a 5/5. There were a few good tracks but overall it wasn't anything interesting. I need something to wow me.

Not my favorite Beatles album, but def some good songs on this. I'm fairly certain Dr. Robert was their drug dealer, and this album was made after dabbling with Ayahuasca.
