A kaleidoscope of possibilities - the largest jump of their career and one of the epitomes of a group of artists breaking new ground at the absolute peak of their creative powers.

Arguably the best album ever made. I go back and forth a lot on whether Revolver or Abbey Road is the Beatles' best. Certainly their most experimental and most groundbreaking work. A stunning achievement that never fails to amaze.

The Beatles at their creative peak. 5 stars for an album with more 5-star tracks than almost any other.

Favorite tracks: "Here, There and Everywhere", "She Said She Said", "And Your Bird Can Sing", "Tomorrow Never Knows", "I Want to Tell You", "Got to Get You Into My Life", "For No One"

Their seventh studio recording marked a huge progression from their first huge progression, Rubber Soul - this made it obvious: Revolver was an album that would come to echo for The Beatles.

This is simple in the overall musical channeling, yet very complex at the level of the individual song - for me personally, here I find the guys at their most energetic and at the same time most musically well-founded stage of their career, though they were transgressing at a great pace and were very swift.

This is when studio sound really changed for music as well - the band began using was automatic double tracking as a production technique (dual vocal tracks) which marked a studio engineering revolution.

"Eleanor Rigby" is my favorite track with a great melancholic feel to it.

Revolver'​s impact was massive and transformative with a simply constructed while at the same time very complex and confusing effort in popular music - one of the greatest in my opinion.

Great album that has so many great melodies and even features some technology that I would suspect would be quite new in the 1960's! From primary school singalong songs such as Blue Submarine to the Psychedelia of Tommorrow Never Knows.

I've heard many of the Radio songs from the beatles and just assumed that they churned out clever easy-listening songs. But after listening to this album, I'm now aware that their legendary status is not just for that but their ability to innovate in a period where rock was still relatively young.

My Favourite Tracks:

Taxman - More for the effects more than the lyrics

I'm Only Sleeping - I've never more wanted to bob along, go to sleep and put a song on repeat all at the same time.

She Said, She Said - Another song I could eventually sing along to!

Tommorrow Never Knows - Too innovative to not rate highly!
