Revolver is an album that changed music as we know it, and is one of the best albums in music history. Rubber Soul may have been the Beatles first "art" album, but it's conventional when compared to Revolver. This album marked the beginning of the Beatles experimentation in earnest, the results of that experimentation is astounding. The songs are unique and unlike anything that came before, but that individuality of sound doesn't get in the way of the Beatles signature beauty, but rather enhances it. Every song on Revolver does something new, and this continues through to the closing track. Tomorrow Never Knows still surprises me, not just in that the Beatles would try to make the song, but that the song somehow works. I think that ability to make even the most obscure elements work is the essence of the Beatle's genius, and Revolver's genius as well. Music wouldn't be the same without Revolver, and neither would many best-ever lists. Revolver has definitely earned its spot on all those lists.

This is, in my humble opinion, a perfect album. It's not too long, there are very few situations where it is inappropriate to play, every song has both no meaning and endless meaning and you simple cannot argue with the quality of the music. Flawless.

I couldn't tell you the first time I listened to this. It was just always there, like bird song. I couldn't imagine life without it.

The Beatles have always been a bit overhyped to me but Revolver is one of the best LPs of all time. "I'm Only Sleeping" is pure genius.

Such a perfect album. If you haven't listened to this, I don't know what's wrong with you. I think you should go and see Doctor Robert.

@jackbrown "Name a more punk song written before Taxman"

Uh, Heroin by Velvet Underground was written in 1964

To jackbrown8786. Oh no, not you again. What's all this about drugs? Is that the glue that binds these songs together? Yellow submarine, about a drug dealer? It's a harmless children's song. Anyway, what drugs? LSD? Paul wrote the song and had never even tried the drug at that point. As for she said, she said, that is a song that Paul DIDN'T write, John wrote it, after an acid experience in L.A, most notably involving Peter Fonda, who while on the drug was telling John he knew what it was like to be dead, the rest is about his childhood, especially his relationship with his mother. As for, and your bird can sing, that was John reacting to a number of derogatory comments Frank Sinatra had at that point made about them. Tomorrow never knows, is not about acid, it was adapted from the, book of the dead, which is a tibetan prayer book, certainly nothing to do with drugs. Granted, Dr. Robert, is about drug dealing, possibly inspired by the dentist that slipped LSD into John and George's coffee for their first trip. There is no doubt some of the sounds on, revolver, were influenced by drugs, but it's crazy to suggest that the album wouldn't have existed without them. One of the most important factors in the making of the album was the wonderful George Martin, and he certainly wasn't using any narcotics. I think it's completely irresponsible to suggest that, for no one, is a reason to do drugs, and I'm sure Paul McCartney would agree with me. You certainly don't need to be on anything to enjoy an album as special as revolver, there are probably millions of people who love revolver who have never touched a drug in their life. Punk songs/records before, revolver? , try the thirteenth floor elevators debut album, and what about, 'I hope i die before I get old'. Off course, anyone who spends all day smoking pot and listening to revolver, is going to convince themselves that every line in every song is a reference to drugs, you'll probably convince yourself you've found the key to the universe. Sort it out, man, don't Bogart that joint. LOL
