It's unbelievable to think that they built this in 1966.

How true are the lyrics of Taxman 'it's 1 for you, 19 for me' and 'if you feel the cold we'll tax the heat'. Worth owning this album just to hear the very true lyrics of this song! Having got that bitterness out of my system, this was a truly groundbreaking album when released in 1966. I know that sitar in modern music is a bit like Marmite. I love both! The Sitar and tabla led 'Love You To'' is a favourite for me. This eastern sounding affair is then countered by the beauty of 'Here, There and Everywhere' Followed by the very fun 'Yellow Submarine'. Side one concludes with the more straightforward pop/Rock 'She Said She Said'. Side two is treasure trove of musical gems, from the upbeat pop/rock happiness of 'Good Day Sunshine' to the acoustic sounding 'For No One' to the concluding psychedelic masterpiece in 'Tomorrow Never Knows'. I put this album at number three in my Beatles collection with Seargent Pepper in first place and Abbey Road at number two.

The Beatles' most consistent album. Ever song is fantastic. Love You To is the most underrated Beatles song, in my opinion.

John, Paul, and George had all finally come into their own as songwriters and it makes for an amazing album. Not a bad track on this one, and one of the best albums ever made.

Like many, I suppose, I was blown away the first time I heard this album. And that was sixteen years after its release. Can't imagine what they thought back in 1966. Truly revolutionary and a masterpiece.

Hmm, with Tomorrow Never Knows, I don't think a song's future influence should have much bearing on its rating as a song. I absolutely give it credit for its originality but as a song in 2017 I'd say it's worth an 86 or 87, not 92.

From Brad1770 12/22/2017 04:46
I’d like to clarify what makes Tomorrow Never Knows consistanly rated one of the greatest tracks ever with Rolling Stone placing it at 18 and Pitchfork 19. TNK was recorded at the beginning of the Revolver sessions and is remarkable for the recording techniques used for its construction. The Beatles utilised tape loops , voice modifications and unconventional drum patterns just to name a few . What makes this remarkable is these techniques had never been used in popular music up until this point, it was very much akin to literally walking on the recording moon for the very first time. These techniques would become standard fair moving forward. So as an actual song TNK is ok but as a LANDMARK in recording history it is a monster
