Congrats Abbey Road for overtaking Revolver as the best of the 60's and third best album ever. Definitely deserves it all and more. Not to discredit Revolver as that is a truly remarkable album as well but the medley is what really takes the cake.

In terms of a consistent, cohesive and coherent album statement, this is about as good as it gets. Brilliant songs throughout, from the mini-epic I Want You to the brilliant You Never Give Me Your Money (which sounds like every 10cc song ever written) to the beautiful Golden Slumbers. There's a great mix of heavy and lighter, rock and pop, as well as the best harmonies the Beatles laid to tape in songs such as Because. I also dig the variety with song lengths varying from 25 seconds to 8 minutes, together with the medley on side 2 where the songs flow into each other perfectly with some unexpected tempo/metre shifts making for an exciting and captivating listen. Not to mention fantastic production and arrangements. For my money, easily the best Beatles album. I didn't get all the Beatles hype until I heard this record - then I immediately understood.

Even though Abbey Road is one of the greatest records ever made, it's still not better than Revolver. I have ranked it third in my top 100 chart. But Revolver is the better one. I think in fact that Revolver is the greatest record ever made. Period.

Easily a top 10 record all-time, arguably THE greatest. I personally think it belongs in the top 10 but still not their defining release. That would be Revolver. It's hard to imagine Abbey Road overtaking Revolver's #3 spot but hey, the members have spoken and I am but one person. Regardless, They're two of the finest pieces of art to grace mankind so it's kinda like trying to choose between gold and gold, can't really go wrong. All hail Abbey Road, all hail Revolver, all hail THE BEATLES!
