What is The Best Beatles Album of all time?
 I'm sticking with the UK Studio releases for this poll as their discography is a complete mess when factoring in all the other worldwide releases.

These are NOT reviews


Shocking, but I don't have their first 2 albums. I fully intend to complete my collection....someday. It's ironic that I don't have the one album that has one of my all time favorite Beatles song from early in their career. Of course I'm talking about Love Me Do, which is found on Please Please Me. The Harmonica intro is just....awesome and so tasty on the ears. Who doesn't love that? Like most people, I got my start with The Beatles by way of Greatest Hits LP's and the first time I ever heard that song was with that. But of course the biggest monster hit on Please Please Me was none other than Twist and Shout.

A Hard Day's Night
at #388


I'm a huge fan of The Beatles. But I'm more a fan of their stuff later in their career where they really started to experiment with recording techniques and evolving with their playing and songwriting. Having said that, A Hard Day's Night is pure vintage classic Beatles, that definitely marks the time of where they were as a band and in their songwriting. This album was release in conjunction with the movie of the same name. From the title track to Can't Buy Me Love, you just can't go wrong.

I would have to disagree with Rolling Stones placement of this album at #388. This was the album that launched them into a whole other world and had the beginnings of what would define their earlier songs. I do believe this album should rank in the Top 100.

I'm gonna jump ahead here before your done... cause actually I've just gone through most of the Beatles stuff in the last few days.

For me, It's a real toss up between Sgt Pepper, which I played the hell out way back when and it has some of the best songs to sing too

and

Abbey Road, which has an amazing montage of songs put into one long masterpiece "You Never Give Me Your Money", that I never get tired of.

So Abbey Road it is  ;D

This is NOT a review


Just like the first 2 albums, this one for whatever reason just slipped through the cracks and never made it into my clutches. Definitely plan to pick this up eventually. Someday. Eight Days A Week is their most well-known song from Beatles For Sale and a personal favorite as well. Sick cover by the way. Classic.

Help! is not a perfect album. It has a few songs that I can do without. But the songs that really work, are perfect in every way. Of course the songs are the title track Help!, Ticket To Ride and the one and only Yesterday. As always, I disagree with Rolling Stone Magazine's spot for this one. I personally think that A Hard Day's Night is a much better album than that of Help! And yet, RS has this one charting higher than the other. Eh?

Rubber Soul
at #5


Rubber Soul. This is the turning point for the band as far as expanding their songwriting as well as recording techniques and instrument experimentations. Sitar anyone? This has one foot in the past and one foot and two hands in the future of what's to come. This is also the album that Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys has said influenced him to make my all time favorite Beach Boys album: Pet Sounds. I would agree with Rolling Stone Magazine with it's placement...or pretty close to it. Definitely Top 10.

It's very hard to play Rubber Soul just one time through. It's an impossibility. I have been playing this one half the day and never get tired of it. Stand out songs include Drive My Car, Norwegian Wood (This Bird Has Flown), Nowhere Man, Michelle and In My Life.

Fave Songs: All of them. But Norwegian Wood is tops IMO.

Cool cover too. Epic cover is more like it. Iconic.

Amazing album, but nowhere near as good as the stuff that's coming after it.

Revolver
at #3


Revolver to me is the true beginning of what The Beatles are all about. From Taxman to Eleonor Rigby to Love You To to Yellow Submarine to She Said She Said to Tomorrow Never Knows all pushed the envelope of what the band could do, thus changing the course of music history that's still being felt to this day. And it only gets better from here on out. I remember the first time I ever heard of Yellow Submarine as a kid and thinking it was the dumbest, hokiest song I had ever heard. Over the years it's just grown on me to the point where I just think its so f*cking awesome now. Ringo ftw!! FYI, playing Yellow Submarine on The Beatles Rock Band gives me a thrill that I just shouldn't be getting from a game with so many other great songs on there.

I can agree with Rolling Stone's placement here.  If not at #3, then  definitely Top 5.  I have so many favorite albums that I'm trying to keep them all in check of where each should go. I will be playing this one for the rest of the night.

Fave Songs: Everyone of the songs to me is classic. But my fave of the bunch is definitely Tomorrow Never Knows.

Sick sick sick cover.  The art is just....too cool.

Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band
at #1


Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band is unquestionably one of the greatest albums of all time. There's something to be said when Rolling Stone Magazine picked it as #1 for it's 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time list. I have probably listened to this more than any other Beatles album. But with my current Beatles listening party marathon in progress, I'm curious to see how this will still rank since I haven't listened to the bulk of their entire catalog in one sitting in a long time. Should be interesting to see how it plays out for me here as I'm quite fond of the White Album and Abbey Road. It could come down to a 3 way tie when it comes time for me to vote what I consider the best Beatles Album Of All Time. I have at times chosen the other two over Peppers before. So...stay tuned. Oh, who am I kidding? We ALL know that Rolling Stone dropped the ball on this one. Everyone knows that the Abbey Road belongs in the #1 slot, with Peppers coming in at #2. Just sayin'.

As for the album itself, it has THE greatest Beatles song ever....A Day In The Life. EPIC. Never fails. Other stand out songs are With a Little Help from My Friends, Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds, She's Leaving Home and Within You Without You. This album is more than just the songs though. It was the technical advancement with recording techniques that elevated this one to a whole new level. The entire album is a wonderous marvel.

Album cover ftw! Iconic anyone?

Rolling Stones 500 Greatest Albums Of All Time
The White Album
at #10

I'll skip all the obvious praising of the "White Album" and just jump right into how I came up with the rating for this. First off, the "White Album" is not perfect, in large part to one "song". That song of course is Revolution 9. It's nothing more then a series of noises, loops, repeating words, etc...And it's something I rarely listen to...if at all. Having said that, Revolution 9 belongs on the album since it has taken on mythic proportions by being the catalyst for the "Paul Is Dead" urban legend. With all the sh*t this song caused back then and the fact that it's still a hot button topic today (even though it was proven to be a hoax. Duh.), I bump the rating back up a half a star.

Fave Songs: Back To USSR, Dear Prudence, Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da, Helter Skelter, Long, Long, Long, Revolution 1 and Good Night with While My Guitar Gently Weeps getting the MVP nod for the entire album IMO.

Abbey Road
at #14

Abbey-fuucking-Road. ABBEY-FUUCKING-ROAD!!! ABBEY-FUUUUCKING-ROAD!!!!!!!

This is one amazing piece of work. This is where it all came together (pun not intended). Everything that had been hinted at on the last few albums reaches an apex here. Now, a lot of people like to throw out descriptive words such as "tight", "well-structured", etc...in describing Abbey Road. Well there's a reason for that. It simply is the tightest album there is. There isn't one clunker anywhere to be found here. Another thing that I really dig about Abbey Road is how a majority of songs segue right into the next, which does give the album a coehsive feel in that it all sounds like one big song. A true "album" in every sense of the word.

Another thing, a lot of people think that Let It Be was the final recording of The Beatles. Yes, it's true that Let It Be was the final product that was released to the public. But Abbey Road was in fact the last thing they recorded together as a band before breaking up.

Fave Songs: Every-fuuucking-one-of-them!!!!!!

But I gotta point out what I think are the Creme de la Creme songs here. Come Together, Something, Oh! Darling, I Want You, Here Comes The Sun, Because, She Came in Through the Bathroom Window, Golden Slumbers, Carry The Weight and The End. Carry The Weight gets the MVP here. Duh!!

George Harrison really got to shine here.

I have been playing this all day and will definitely keep playing it till I drift off to sleep tonight.  Album cover ftw!! It's one of, if not the most iconic cover of all time. Paul is barefoot! Uh oh! Does that mean he is.....

...naw.

FYI, I totally object to Rolling Stone putting Abbey Road at #14. It belongs in the #1 slot. Can I get a "hell yeah?"

at #86

Let It Be is a solid album, but not a great one. Anything that follows Abbey Road is just an impossible task and is destined to be a huge let down IMO. This isn't an album that I have listened to a whole lot over the years. Having said that, this album does have some of the greatest Beatles songs in their entire catalog with Across The Universe, Let It Be, The Long And Winding Road and Get Back. But I usually just go straight for the Greatest Hits package to hear those.

Back when I was a kid and low on income, I had a choice of getting The Red Album or The Blue Album. Well, it's obvious which one I eventually settled on. I will definitely be picking up the just announced Re-masters of this as well as The Blue Album when they are released.

Like everyone else, I bought Anthology 1 (as well as Anthology 2) for the first new Beatles songs since Let It Be. That's 25 years between releases! Yikes. For this one, the new song was Free As A Bird. A lot of people seem to have bad things to say about the new songs. Me, I love it and see nothing wrong with it. Free As A Bird is just a really cool song.

As for the rest of Antology 1, it's packed with tons outtakes, and some live stuff as well. It's also sprinkled with snippets of behind the scene conversations and interviews with the band in between the songs. These are for the completest or Die Hard Beatle fans.

Anthology 2 was also released to coincide with the documentary of the same name. The big selling point for this collection was the 2nd new Beatles song: Real Love. This song seems to get even more hate directed it's way than that of Free As A Bird. Personally I like it and find myself singing it once it gets into my head.

Anthology 2 is exactly the same as Anthology 1 with outtakes and live performances. This set for die hard Beatle fans.

This is NOT a review

I never bothered to pick this up because the 3rd new Beatles song never happened due to poor quality regarding the tapes they were going to use. So they ended up doing an instrumental song instead, which I didn't think at the time was worth it.

Eventually I'll get around to picking up Anthology 3. I did hear that they are doing re-masters for all 3 of the Anthology sets. It remains to be seen if it actually pans out as fact...or fiction.

I stopped by Cow Music yesterday afternoon and in the 'New Arrivals' section that had a bunch of the The Beatles: Remastered Vinyls. It feels great holding new stuff in my hands, one that is adorned with The Beatles logo on it. Wasn't sure if the price was a good deal or not. Went to Amazon to see what the same album cost: Cow = 21 bucks, Amazon = 19.99. Really no difference in price across the board. But with amazon I'd have to pay shipping on top of that and wait a week for it to come to my door. I guess Cow is the one I'll go with. Gonna go with Abbey Road. At least I will know what I'm getting and not have to worry about damage to the vinyl.

the turn table was about $115 and it's decent, but I think I'd be better off saving and getting a $400 one...then speakers are key....my dad is giving me his old Marantz reciever which is super bad ass...it's a powerful 70's one.

I can probably find a link....lets see:

I was almost going to give Revolver the edge...but the back half of Abbey Road always destroys me...it might be the most amazing side of a record ever

Abbey Road (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/music/the-beatles-discography/msg1294/#msg1294). Best. Beatles. Album. Ever.

Best. Album. Period.

the first side is a little more shaky for me....based more on song order.  I don't think the order of the songs makes any sense and has bad flow being totally honest.

Come Together to Something is awesome...Maxwell's Hammer and Octopus Garden....I am not as fond of...they aren't bad songs...but I'd considered doing my own version of the record where I either omit those songs or place them on the back end of side 1...To me neither song fits...and I like their unusual songs but I've always felt they are jarring even as far back as like,,,,1979 or so when I'd first heard the record.

I'm actually listening to all of Abbey Road right now and totally get what you mean. Having said that, I actually like the diversity of Side 1 as 'odd' as it may sound. With the Beatles, their songs have always tended to go from one extreme to the next. But Side 2, sh*t man, that is just beyond epic and a primer course on how to construct songs and track order.

Oh, Darling! is such a kick ass song. It's got that blues swagger and great vocals. Makes me want to sing, which I don't.

The Beatles' Maxwell's Silver Hammer = No Doubt's Bathwater

I'm surprised that no one has never made the connection. I've never heard anyone or any publication talk about it. Anyway, discuss......

Watching Patriots V Dolphins. We need the Pats to win today and they are blowing it. The Dolphins and Ravens both need to lose 2 out of their last 3 games and the Chargers have to win the next 2 for us to get into the Wldcard spot. Why is it when I need Tom Brady to bring his A-Game, he ends up sucking? F*ck!!

I have not watched (or played the game for that matter) in a long ass time. I had totally forgotten how awesome the animation was for the Opening.

George Martin (January 3, 1926 – March 8, 2016)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2LzgwR5gDk

There's only a handful of Producers (past and present) that I actually single out as one of the best in their chosen profession. George Martin is one of them. RIP

Paul McCartney - Fuh You

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CWYlWvtEyio

I dig the song. It's really good. Super catchy. But, what's up with the Song Title? Is he purposely censoring himself? Is it suppose to be tongue-in-cheek? Everyone is going to sing it the way it's intended to be sung and I don't mean 'Fuh' either. Kind of reminds me of Cee Lo and his F*ck You song and the radio friendly Forget You song. No, I know there isn't an uncensored version of Fuh You out there. Paul would never go there. Anyway, check out the song if you haven't already done so.

Paul McCartney - Who Cares

The song is fantastic. Love the video. Emma Stone kinda looks like Margot Robbie once she has the makeup on.
