Almost every song rivals the best song ever. Dare I call this album underrated? This music is untouched. Deep, catchy, psychedelic, epic, wonderful. The Beatles were pure magic and, with the possible exception of Sgt Peppers, we will never see an album this good or this important ever again.

Love the Beatles! Eleanor Rigby is so sad, downright depressing, but still so beautiful.

Objectively speaking, probably the best Beatles album, it has better songs than Sgt Pepper, it is more concise than the White Album and it doesn't have too many novelty tracks like Abbey Road.

It also has a perfect balance of some gentle McCartney ballads, Lennon's more edgier and experimental tracks and also some of Harrison's finest too.

This is a good album, but I have never felt that Beatles albums have the overall construction of other great albums. I am impressed with how quickly they put out these albums, most of my favorite artists only put out albums about every 5 years, which again is a testament to how great the Beatles were. Each Beatles album had major hits and managed to reinvent their sound which is again very impressive in a short period of time, but individually I don't think their albums were perfect.

Specifically in this album, the song yellow submarine really breaks the flow of the album. The songs are really short at first which gives a choppy feel to the album (although Eleanor Rigby is one of my all time favorite Beatles songs). So to me, this is an album that has a lot of solid songs, a few great songs, and could use some work in its overall flow and construction.

Beatles are the best what else to say? Ranks in any order you want with their best St. Pepper, White Album, and Abbey Road. Interchangeably excellent albums 1-4.

Personally love Get You Into My Life, She Said She Said.

Doctor Robert and Yellow Submarine are low points if you can call them that. They are still great

Paul's album with Eleanor Rigby, For No-one and Here, There and Everywhere. Harrison's efforts apart from Taxman are not good and I Want to Tell You with its Les Dawson piano is almost unlistenable. John Lennon could have stayed in bed and rung in Tomorrow NeverKnows. After his great work on Rubber Soul with In My Life and Norwegian Wood he is disappointing here. Outshone by Ringo in the delightful Yellow Submarine. The only time England won the World Cup and it passed The Beatles by. Talk about not getting with the programme. Oh, and they later missed the moon landing too. Not a bad record though but! Eleanor Rigby alone is a towering achievement.

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.
