how does abbey road pass this? I predicted it would in a thread last year but I didn't want it. sure, abbey road was important for prog. it was original to have the whole second side as one coherent piece and important for works like dark side of the moon as well as every other prog or rock opera album, but revolver revolutionized EVERYTHING.
do you think it's a coincidence that the velvet underground and pink floyd made their debuts a year after this? do you really think the explosion of great music from 67-70 would have come without this? organize your collection by release date and you'll see that b4 revolver there was only jazz, blues, motown style pop, and 50's style rock.
there were no odes to drugs or even abstract, bizarre lyrics b4 this album.
there was no such thing as "weird" experimental music b4 "tomorrow never knows" and "yellow submarine."
there were no albums with songs ranging in diversity from "love you to" to "for no one," and certainly no lyrics that openly embraced sin as in the former song.
there were no blasphemous lyrics like we hear in "eleanor rigby."
there were no obnoxious guitar solos coupled with shouting lyrics (PUNK) like we hear in "taxman," let alone the anti-government lyrics of the same song.
there was no psychedelic rock b4 "i'm only sleeping."
they experimented with so many tempos, styles, tunings, and a lot of it was never heard b4. frankly, music was elevated to the highest art form with this release. to come out when it did, this must have sounded like it came from another planet. this is the birth of modern rock, how long do you think it would have taken your preferred styles of music to evolve w/o the beatles' influence and lead here? even now, we're a mere 50 years (NOTHING) since this album, we might still not even have what we know as "modern rock" to this day. every landmark album is either influenced by revolver or influenced by an album that was influenced by revolver or influenced by an album that was influenced by an album that was influenced by revolver.
you'll never see this much innovation in a single album again. there was more innovation here than in every album of the last decade and a half combined. ppl tend to think, "well, yeah, everything's been done by now" but they're wrong, there are new styles every decade and you just take for granted that it would have been done by someone else had the beatles not done it first - as if you would expect ppl to know what "green" looks like if they've never seen the color; THAT is what it's like to come up with a musical style that no one's ever heard b4 or paint something in a new art style. someone could have rapped in the 60's and you'd take them for granted too, along with all the additional rap we'd have gotten, given those 2 extra decades of evolution and inspiration. the genre TODAY would be 2 decades into the future, do you get it? try to imagine there was no rap, or alt/grunge/funk/techno/disco, then someone releases an album today with all that shit on it. imagine that every genre about to emerge in the next 30 years ALL DROPPED on one album tomorrow. the beatles did that. and they did it with songs that are still classics of their genres, played on radios and jukeboxes every day after half a century of evolution in the genres. they're gods, if any musicians deserve the title.
pls just look at the entirety of music pre- and post-revolver and you'll know that it's true. ppl can't even seem to comprehend just how important this album is. if ppl understood, this album would be #1, it certainly wouldn't be below abbey road. this is much better and will likely always be mind-blowing to anyone who can wrap his head around it well enough to get close to understanding what it must have been like on the day this album dropped.
Not much to say about this album, we all know it's great. One of the first albums I heard when I was first getting into rock music. This is the first album where The Beatles really start reaching for their true musical potential. A perfect blend of the pop songwriting from earlier in their career and the crazy experimentation later. Not my favorite of theirs, but still great.
A great Beatles album their 3rd best in my opinion. I still prefer Abbey Road & Rubber Soul and the "white album" is a close 4th, however all 4 are in my Top 100. The big disappointment on Revolver is Love You To I want to like it but it doesn't work for me and sounds out of place amongst so many other great tracks - Taxman, Eleanor Rigby, Yellow Submarine, For No One, And Your Bird Can Sing, Got To Get You Into My Life & Good Day Sunshine. Don't get me wrong it's a great album it's just not their best.
Don't even question it, all you have to say is "Revolver". A legend of legends.
Could be argued for the best album of all time, and I can see why.
Favorite Track: Tomorrow Never Knows

Tier List for my preferences of the tracks on this album:
Top: 1, 2, 7-10
High: 3, 4, 6, 11-14
My favourite Beatles album!
This was where the beatles really became artists
Between the plodding, sappy, simple boy-band musings of the early Beatles, and the later drug-induced hippie gibberish of late Beatles, lies this, a great, forward-thinking-without-being-ridiculous, album.
