I think this album is the seed of alternative music. Considering their status as pop icons at this point in their career, it was an alternate path that the Beatles decided that their music must take to feel creatively fulfilled. Rubber Soul, before it, showed glimpses of where their genius might progress but Revolver embraced it fully. The best track for mine, is the immaculate closer Tomorrow Never Knows which is a truly monumental leap of existential art when comparing it to previous Beatles songs. This is where they (Lennon in particular) are truly riding the zeitgeist of 60s consciousness expansion and it epitomises the cultural changes taking effect through experimentation with psychedelics. At the other end of the spectrum, you have the maturing observational story-telling telling of McCartney with Eleanor Rigby. So much of the album expresses the musings of adults who have dispensed of the simplistic catchy teenage pop songs that made them... popular. This was Music taking charge of its own destiny through the conduit of 4 Liverpudlians.

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.

From ars2458 06/14/2016 14:25
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.

Still REALLY good, but I enjoy the later albums more. Has a lot of remarkable tunes though.

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.
