I can never decide whether this or Rubber Soul is my favourite Beatles offering

both albums are so wonderful from start to finish however the deciding factor is "for no one"

Revolver wins by a nose

The best Beatles album, if only for the closing track. How did that get made in 1966?!

Instant classic. The Beatles made a dramatic change with this album and it worked perfectly. I highly recommend this to everyone!

One year after they innovated the concept of the album, The Beatles innovated popular music as we know it. Everything on this record is innovation, from the fusion of eastern music with rock and the earliest baroque pop, to the backward solos and the twisting of laughter into the cry of seagulls. The Beatles revolutionized studio techniques with this album. Tomorrow Never Knows pretty much sums it all up though, an absolutely gripping experiment to this day, which can feel infinitely long despite being very short.

The first truly innovative album in my opinion. The first and last tracks are truly incredible for the time, and its almost impossible to review this album without just smiling at its beauty and awe.

It's extremely difficult for me to choose between this and Abbey Road for my favorite Beatles album, but I think this takes the cake in the long run. McCartney easily dominates here, with songs like "Here, There & Everywhere" and "For No One." Don't underestimate Lennon, though. His "I'm Only Sleeping" is very strong and "Tomorrow Never Knows" is one of the most original and revolutionary Beatles songs in general.

This album is a huge milestone in music because of its considerably experimental production and music for the time, but as an album it lacks lyrical connection, as is the flaw of most other albums by the Beatles. Regardless, the musical side of this album is excellent and makes up largely on the lyrical side of things. - 9/10

As I say this, I will first say that I am a huge Beatles fan. Having said that, while REVOLVER is not my favorite album (4th) it is certainly NOT overrated. This album runs the gauntlet of every type of rock & roll that was to follow. some bands may have improved on these styles (including the Beatles themselves) but give this album the credit it deserve for being the pioneer that it is.
(Tomorrow Never Knows (Hendrix), Got to Get You Into My Life(Chicago), Eleanor Rigby(Deep Purple) just to name three examples.
