Oh I guess I missed a single letter that construed my comment as THE top record instead of A top record... easily top 5 for me is what I mean. Here's how I rank them/rate their best. The rest is good and great "next gen" rock n' roll, but these are their most unique/what makes them much more than just a pop group, in my reality distortion field.

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band The Beatles 1967 100
Abbey Road The Beatles 1969 100
Revolver The Beatles 1966 95
Magical Mystery Tour The Beatles 1967 95
The Beatles (The White Album) The Beatles 1968 90.9
Let It Be The Beatles 1970 90.8
Rubber Soul The Beatles 1965 90.7


Our top five is almost completely the same. Just switch MMT with White and you've got it.


Here's my whole ranked chart. https://www.besteveralbums.com/thechart.php?c=62357

Nice.

Also I've thought this once before, but insane they had this output in a 3 year period of time (Let It Be was released in 4 year period of time, but recording took place within that 3 year... anyway, maybe it's like 3 years and 6 months)

Point is, I know few artists who achieved that in such a short amount of time. All top shelf records in my opinion. Most other "greats" have one or two albums like those... so it's like for every 1-2 albums, Beatles did 7... and then on top of that, one of them was a double.

Worst band ever.

Overrated.

Start to finish, with this tracklist, it's probably my favourite Beatles record. There are parts of it I definitely don't love, but it's solid front to back.

Sgt Peppers is my top Beatles album but this is top 5 for me. Great album.
It doesn't matter to me that it's not a proper album but technically a double EP with added singles.
It's such a marvellous album to play.

I like to play this after playing Sgt Peppers and get a double dose of psychedelia. Even better play Revolver first then Sgt Pepper then MMT.


Every word of this post is right.


Thanks Spyglass

Yeah really agree with this since Magical Mystery Tour and Sgt. Pepper's really could be like a double album (although I'm glad they aren't). They both play with this idea of a fake tour - the album is the live show we brought to you (that arguably is better than what we could've played live). Basically all written around the same time and with a similar artistic theme.


I agree

It's funny how the Beatles best albums IMO were created after they gave up touring.

Here's my top Beatles albums:

Sgt Pepper
White Album
Revolver
Abbey Road
MM Tour
A Hard Day's Night
Rubber Soul

A top 7 lol!

It's definitely a great album

For me it contains the Beatles' best song
Strawberry Fields Forever

Although I also love the songs Let it Be and And I Love Her

Have you heard Kurt Cobain's haunting home recording? (possibly saying haunting because he drops the key and then his relationship with Courtney Love).
