My current favorite is Revolver.
Abbey Road for me.
Abbey Road, with Revolver a close second.
1) "The White Album"
2) Sgt. Pepper's...
3) Rubber Soul
[sarcasm]Oh, we never saw this poll coming![/sarcasm]
Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band
I never listened to them.
Definitely, The White Album, followed closely by Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Abbey Road.
McNerf-Burger: You have no idea what you're missing.
I go out of my way NOT to.
Revolver is my fave, and then Rubber Soul.
Revolver and Sgt. Peppers
Never before has an album been released with such fluidness, meaning, and as a finale to the greatest band this world has ever seen.
Even though I didn't vote for it, Magical Mystery Tour is awesome!
HELP! I just love that main song!
I finally bought the Abbey Road CD and listened to it. While it didn't impress me as much as some of the other Beatles albums, I still loved it. The medley is brilliant, as was the idea of putting such a happy song like "Here Comes the Sun" right after the dark "I Want You (She's So Heavy)".
HELP comes a close second the "feel good" song of all time:
"I wanna hold your hand"
I don't think the Beatles ever released a genuinely perfect album, but Abbey Road probably comes closest for me. Shame it has Maxwell's Silver Hammer on it, though.
the white album
with sgt. pepper's a close second
"Shame it has Maxwell's Silver Hammer on it, though."
It's probably among my least favorite Beatles songs, but it's so silly, that I had a smile on my face the whole time. Same with "Octopus's Garden".
It's a hard-hearted person who fails to love the charming, catchy silliness of Octopus's Garden, whereas Maxwell's Silver Hammer is just irritating and grating, if you ask me.
There's surely something wrong with the natural balance of the universe when Ringo starts writing better songs then Paul. Of course, George wrote better songs then any of them on Abbey Road, so you never know.
I voted 'Other' because I don't like any of the Beatles' albums.
I'd have to go with Revolver because it was such a transitional album in terms of the later sound present in Abbey Road and the White Album.
