What a great and lively discussion! I agree with much of what was said, but here's my two cents. Mr. Sun King, while I agree with your overall point, I really think you're trying to classify art too much. The point about Pepper is that they were songs that couldn't be performed live, so therefore it most definitely would be considered a concept album because that is the theme and every song adheres to that theme. Tommy is a concept album because all the songs are based around this character Tommy, but that doesn't mean that every song must be about some character, like if every song were about Sgt. Pepper or something like that. It's art and it's abstract, and in that respect I would say it was their creative peak because no one could ever replicate that album, it is so completely unique. I don't think it's song for song their best album, heck it might not even be in the top 5, but as a complete album from start to finish it could be their best because of the creativity present in every single song.

Ohhhhhhhhhh excellent post Gniknus! And well I'm used to listening to the Beatles in albums, but yeah you're right. As a whole, Pepper is amazing. If you pick one song to listen by itself (with a few exceptions) it sounds not that great, something you can't say for example, from Abbey Road (not considering the medleys maybe)

 

The thing is, Pepper is not one of my favorite albums (but that's just me), and I've been listening to it lately, and I think I'm finding love for it.

 

But now that Cuaresma (Lent) is coming, I'm opening my arms to Abbey Road.

 

BTW Guys, don't you feel like having a favorite album depending the season? a-hard-days-night-john-4

I do. The White Album Is my Christmas Album, so to speak. Abbey Road is for Summer, and Revolver is near my B-Day.

Mith, what is in your coffee today? :)

 

With the exception of Beatles For Sale (Fall -- and I realize that it's not exactly a subliminal choice) I can't think of another album that invokes a season. Songs, yes: I've Just Seen a Face, Dear Prudence, Strawberry Fields Forever, and Here Comes The Sun -- Spring; I Want You (She's So Heavy) -- Winter;  And Your Bird Can Sing, Good Day Sunshine, Magical Mystery Tour, Penny Lane -- Summer; Let It Be, Nowhere Man, In My Life and from BFS especially No Reply and I'm a Loser -- Fall

I could seriously think more about this, but I'll stop here in case anyone else wants to jump in.

I listened to Pepper and Abbey Road and the White Album a lot when we had heavy snow last winter, so I associate those with winter a lot.

To me, I listen to Abbey Road alot during winter because it has a summer-y feel.

My mind is far away, off in Pepperland…

I listen to Here Comes The Sun right when the weather is getting warmer for obvious reasons. I also listen to Dear Pudence around this time. Basically any song that has a very happy, sunshiny feeling, I listen to it right when winter ends and spring is beginning. I don't really listen to full albums during a certain time. I do it when I'm bored or timing things. 

Jsyk: From Baltimore to DC by bus, it takes one Abbey Road.

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