OK. GniknuS and Von Bontee should sit down for this. And probably Sun king and paulsbass. And basically everyone. 

I'm on this weird Beatles-only kick where I can't really appreciate non-Beatles (or S&G) material. I mean, I know there's good stuff out there. But the thing is, I can't stand the Stones, I can't get my hands on any non-formulaic Beach Boys music (I know, I know, Pet Sounds, but I don't know how to obtain it), and (GniknuS will have a heart attack) Dylan's voice irritates me too much for me to appreciate the lyrics. Also, the amount of solo material I have is PITIFUL. I have some (OK, two) "best of" John albums, and Band On The Run and Good Evening NYC (which is like 75% Beatles), but that's about it. 

Does anyone have any suggestions? Please? 

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

If you're asking for song suggestions to get you off this weird kick, I am actually a really good person to ask.  But if you're asking what solo albums are awesome, I don't know, I would say all of them have at least one good song on them.

Which question??

There are four distinct categories of music I like:

In general, I agree with you, Dr.

Yeah, I'd agree with about 90% of these artists.

 

And M3, some great ones have already been said; Bowie, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Beach Boys. (I got my Pet Sounds album off of Amazon btw, and around the same time I also got Brian Wilson's Smile which is awesome too.) I'd also add a bit of Led Zeppelin and Eric Clapton in there.

And I definitely go through Beatles-only phases sometimes as well, it'll pass, aha. a-hard-days-night-george-7
