Revolver is back on top again, as it should be! Abby Road is incredible, but it's flow is interrupted occasionally. Revolver never ceases to amaze or bore and every song flows perfectly. Every time I listen to it, I can't believe it's only been 35 minutes! Tomorrow Never Knows still knocks any other psychedelic song out of the park to this day.

I could imagine this one being a jaw-dropping sonic expanse upon the release. Still something to behold today which speaks volumes.

An intense, ambitious LP from the Beatles. Fresh off their best album to date, the Beatles somehow top it. This was only the beginning of the Beatles' most experimental acid phase.

Key moments: Eleanor Rigby, I'm Only Sleeping, Here, There and Everywhere, and Tomorrow Never Knows

Revolver is finally back as The Beatles greatest album on this site!
I was also just scrolling through some sites who sited the greatest Beatles album. I would say that critics has Sgt Pepper, Revolver and the White Album up there as their greatest album, while on different poles on sites or magazines voted by different people on the same question; It's either Revolver or Abbey Road. It's usually that Revolver takes the win by a slight(!) win, almost a tie. It just shows the variety Beatles and had how hard this question really is...
My ratings on their top 5 albums are as follows: Revolver, Abbey Road, Rubber Soul, Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band, The White Album. Even though I love them all!

This is my pick for the best ever album. Everything you'd want in an album is here: The perfect ballads ("Here, There And Everywhere" and "For No One"), the perfect rockers ("Taxman", "She Said She Said" and "And Your Bird Can Sing"), brilliant psychedelia ("I'm Only Sleeping", "She Said She Said" (again) and "Tomorrow Never Knows") and even a pinch of world music ("Love You To"). It's got a it's fair share of serious tracks ("Eleanor Rigby" and "For No One") and it's fair share of fun tracks to counter the serious tracks ("Yellow Submarine", "Good Day Sunshine" and "Got To Get You Into My Life"). The album shows the Beatles at their creative peak, constantly trying to find new things never done in pop and rock. New production tricks and new genres, styles and instruments to blend in to popular music. The album also shows every single Beatle at their best, before the feuding began and slowly tore to group apart. The album changed popular music forever, and is one of the most groundbreaking albums of all time. That's why I think it's the greatest album ever. Oh, and it's also got the coolest fucking album cover ever.

Agree with everything on this except that TVU&N was recorded before Revolver came out.

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.
