I think Pepper has a higher ratio of "great songs:" "Lucy," "Getting Better," "Leaving," "Kite!" "Within You," "64," "Rita," "Good Morning," and "A Day In The Life." 

AHDN has its title track, "Should Have Known," "Any Time," "I'll Cry," "Things We Said Today," and "You Can't Do That." They're all great songs, but even the best of them is inferior to something like "She's Leaving Home." 

So Pepper has both consistency and better quality. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

But aren't we comparing different Beatles? I mean, I think it's unfair to compare... I dunno.. Abbey Road with .. Please Please Me because in the first one, they have reached a magnificent maturity that is shown in their lyrics and music, whereas the latter the music is young, cheerful, fresh.

 

It's an idea that crossed my mind when I read these messages.... a-hard-days-night-ringo-8

a-hard-days-night-ringo-8I agree with all three of you.

M3 and mr. S bring up excellent points about their respective choices.

Mith brings up an excellent point about…

"But aren't we comparing different Beatles?"

If you break down the different Beatles by "sound", you might end up with something like this.

1) PPM, WTB, AHDN and BFS.

2) H (could go in either group 1 or 2), RS, R, SPLHCB, MMT

3) TB, YS, LiB, AR

M3 and mr. S could debate that their choice is the best and they each could be right in their respective sound groups. Today. Tomorrow you might feel otherwise. 

That's what makes this kind of thread a lot of fun.

See, and I'd move Help and Rubber Soul into the 1st category and leave "Phase 2" as Revolver, Sgt. Pepper and Magical Mystery Tour. :)

I doubt Why Don't We Do It In The Road would have gone over well on Please Please Me. :)

I Am The Walrus on Please Please Me. It would be placed right after I Saw Her Standing There.

I don't think it would have worked. Sorry John, not all songs can be placed on another album. There is a reason why it was put on MMT, the psychadelic acid trip that was utterly incoherent and awkward. Love the album though 

Well we all shine on like the moon, the stars, and the sun.

That was about Pepper, not the whole Canon.

The concept was/is Sgt. Pepper and His Band, but it doesn't Go anywhere
