Not sure it's fair to count MMT as an album – especially when comparing it to others.
Side 2 could simply be titled "The Best of '67"; it's just a collection of the A and B sides of their '67 singles
(which of course serves to remind us that 1967 is arguably the best year that any band every had – except possibly the Beatles of 1964).

If folks want to hear the pepper tracks in a new light you should listen to the reconstructed isolated tracks from Rockband currently being posted here. Its more than simply the isolated tracks as extracted from the Rock Band game.
Ringo's drumming is so damn mindblowing, i could listen to Ringo's parts for ages and im not a big fan of drums only. You get to hear some incredible things, the rhythm track of Pepper (reprise) is amazingly hypnotic, the Lowrey organ in Lucy is beautiful, the lead guitar in Fixing A Hole. Plus you get to hear beatle talk otherwise hidden.

Again I can't reply to Intotheskywithdiamonds. Something wrong or different with your account?
After all the talking I listened to Pepper in mono today.
Folks, even if Paul had not written a single song on the album he'd still RULE it with his BASS!!
Damn, With a little help from my friends with these first high bass notes walking down, then Lucy, then Getting better which has such a great arrangement with instruments and vocals – the bass totally sticks out and dominates the sound. Heavy, heavy, went directly through the stomach.
I can see how John hated recording without the bass since without it it's no real band feeling. But boy did it pay off…
