Revolver is my favourite, though I have always had a soft spot for BeatlesVI as well.

Not sure if this has been said before or not, but Rolling Stone Magazine ranked the top 500 albums of all time a few years back and Revolver was No. 1. I somehow think that disqualifies it as criminally underrated.

Well I guess that John's statement about Jesus effected the Revolver sales and popularity, otherwise it would be just like Sgt Pepper. I think Revolver is pretty close to Sgt Pepper, if Sgt Pepper is 100% then Revolver is 98%. Yea and when is RIAA going to certify Rubber Soul & Revolver as Diamond Albums, seriously they must have sold over 10M by now

On Anthology George suggested that maybe "Rubber Soul" and "Revolver" are volumes 1 and 2 in a pair; 'I think I disagree' - "Revolver" is another step above in terms of imagination and consistency (though "Soul" is great as well).

I agree with George Harrison on this one.  I can open my iTunes and play Revolver & Rubber Soul mixed together and they really do sound astonishingly the same.  Both have great songs, but sound like they were recorded together at the same time. (Dec. '65 & Aug. '66)

I guess you could almost say the same about Sgt Pepper & Capitols MMT, (both made in '67), because of Strawberry Fields Forever, Penny Lane, Hello Goodbye, All You Need Is Love & Baby, You're A Rich Man. (1967,  What a year for the Beatles.........) a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

And going back to Please Please Me & With The Beatles, both sound they were also recorded together.  Mar.'63 & Nov. '63 BEATLES Music gives me Eargasms!  apple01
