Best Beatles album

Unread postby British_Pharaoh » Sun Feb 21, 2010 2:55 pm

Listening to Please Please Me over and over recently has made me re-evaluate my 'Rubber Soul' choice


what's your guys verdicts?

Always has, always will be the Abbey Road album...

Side 2 medley still gives me the chills...

you have to really love 'Hey Bulldog' to vote for that album as the best

White Album is a close second followed by Abbey Road and Let It Be.

Ol' "Whitey" would be my fave if not for about 4-5 filler tunes that I skip over everytime...

Always thought Let It Be was very underrated...

No love for Revolver yet?

The correct answer would be whatever Beatle Album you hadn't heard in the longest.

They are all that good.

I voted for Help! to show it some love and respect this time. To me this is the album prior to Rubber Soul that showed the Beatles were more than some latest teen craze.

When Yesterday was played solo by Paul on the Ed Sullivan show, the older generation opened their eyes and said, these guys got some talent..

One of my fav alltime songs is "You're Gonna Lose that Girl", I dont think Ive ever played that song and NOT hit the replay butonn a couple of times to hear it again and again. Magic.

Track listing
All songs written and composed by Lennon/McCartney, except where noted.

Side one
# Title Lead Vocals Length
1. "Help!" Lennon 2:18
2. "The Night Before" McCartney 2:33
3. "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" Lennon 2:08
4. "I Need You" (George Harrison) Harrison 2:28
5. "Another Girl" McCartney 2:05
6. "You're Going to Lose That Girl" Lennon 2:17
7. "Ticket to Ride" Lennon 3:10

Side two
# Title Lead Vocals Length
1. "Act Naturally" (Johnny Russell, Voni Morrison) Starr 2:29
2. "It's Only Love" Lennon 1:54
3. "You Like Me Too Much" (Harrison) Harrison 2:35
4. "Tell Me What You See" McCartney 2:36
5. "I've Just Seen a Face" McCartney 2:04
6. "Yesterday" McCartney 2:03
7. "Dizzy Miss Lizzy" (Larry Williams) Lennon 2:53

I picked Rubber Soul. You Won't See Me/Nowhere Man are my favorite back-to-back tracks ever, followed closely only by Heartbreaker/Living Loving Maid by Zeppelin. The rest of the album holds up well. I think, personally, that it's better than Help! and Revolver among those albums that defined the middle of their careers. I like Sgt Peppers, but I don't think I could ever classify it as the best The Beatles ever did. I think Abbey Road is 1b for me, and as mentioned above, those ~16 minutes or whatever on the B side gives me chills, too. The build up going in to and through Carry that Weight (especially the end when they all sing to end the song) might be my favorite part of any Beatles album ever. Still, though, Rubber Soul is my go-to album.

I love it when Ringo was on lead vocals

'Boys' is one of my favourite tracks (even if it is a cover) mainly for Ringo

The correct answer is obviously Sgt. Pepper. With Revolver being a choice nearly as defensible.

If any of you boobs haven't seen the Beatles first movie, it's essential if you are a fan of the era or the music.

just sayin'!

For me, I have to give it to both Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road.

White Album is a bit overrated.

But all of their albums are epic.

I wish artists would care less about touring and more about writing music so that they can release an album each year. The Beatles essentially made a dozen albums within a 6 year span. Hot damn.

It's a whole different industry now than what it was during the sixties. Most artist's, even the big ones like Metallica, U2, etc. etc., make most of their money now from touring and personal appearances. The digital distribution age and the stupidity of the record company exec's are pretty much destroying recorded music as a profit making venture.

Back in the sixties, the Beatles were actually one of the lesser prolific groups. Creedence Clearwater Revival released 7 platinum records along with numerous singles in a roughly 3 year span.

It was a great time for the music lover. If I had a way-back time machine I'd head for the nearest record store circa 1965-1969 and get sealed copies of everything I could get my hands on.
