Really, you put Magical Mystery Tour 76′ at number 1, that’s just an album containing a double EP with it’s track order rearranged for side 1 and non-album singles for side 2, what’s so good about it that puts it at the top.

Maybe you should try posting more.

I thought Sgt. Pepper was put first! The white blended in with the background, and I was shocked that you’d stopped liking the White Album !

It’s in a spoiler now, so that shouldn’t be a problem.

@William Shears Campbell 

Just curious, why is Let It Be your least favorite?   It’s in the bottom half of my list too, but there are definitely like 3 or 4 albums I would consider inferior to it.

After listening to some Get Back bootlegs, I’ve started to fancy Specter’s mix less and less. It’s by no means a bad album, it’s just my least favorite. Ironically the Get Back era is one of my favorite era’s.

@William Shears Campbell 

Yeah, I agree that Spector’s mix is not the best.  Sometimes, the bootlegs or Naked sound a LOT better to my ears.  But alas, Let It Be does contain what I fell to be the greatest live Beatles performance I’ve ever heard: I’ve Got A Feeling .  I just love that song so much.a-hard-days-night-john-6

I think there is a definite difference between your favourite and the best. IMO Abbey Road is the best, Sgt Pepper the most important, but Rubber Soul is by far my favourite. Rubber Soul is like having a big hug every time you hear it. The melodies, the harmonies, the instrumental work is brilliant. It has a couple of tracks I’m not so keen on (Run For Your Life , Drive My Car ) but only one outright bad song (What Goes On ). 

I've been up on the mountain, and I've seen his wondrous grace,
I've sat there on the barstool and I've looked him in the face.
He seemed a little haggard, but it did not slow him down,
he was humming to the neon of the universal sound.

I’m going to have to go with The Beatles mainly because it has more tracks than the others, although a couple of them are throwaways, another reason I picked this album is because it marks the return of John and George playing more guitar on the songs and it has Paul play guitar on 10 of the 30 songs.

Sgt. Pepper is my favourite simply because it provides the best album experience from start to finish. The only song i’m not keen on is When I’m Sixty-Four , but that’s not the say it’s terrible (In fact it’s probably my favourite McCartney ‘music hall’ tune). It also ends with A Day In The Life … so yeah enough said. 

Revolver and the White Album are close seconds.

Revolver and Sgt Pepper . Love them both equally. Revolver is a great summer album, and Pepper is, well,THE masterpiece. I listen to the Beatles every day, and Sgt Pepper and Revolver are the 2 albums I listen to the most

These are also my favourites together with the White Album . I wonder though, what do you exactly mean by ‘Revolver is a great summer album’? Does the whole album have a warm and carefree sound to you, just like summer? Or something else?

I hope you don’t mind me asking, I’m just extremely intrigued by what other people think about Revolver ‘s overall atmosphere and ‘summer’ is a really new thought.a-hard-days-night-george-9 

For me, Revolver has always sounded like floating through a tunnel like that:

Only that the tunnel’s surrounding is somewhat wobbly and really colourful… a bit like my avatar, perhaps, now that I think about it.a-hard-days-night-george-10

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

Warm and carefree, yeah I’d go along with that. Songs like Here,There and Everywhere,Good Day Sunshine ,Got To Get You Into My Life , I’m Only Sleeping ….these songs just seem summery to me. I can imagine driving around on a hot summers day, and having Revolver playing. I don’t know,maybe that’s just me though. It’s a really chilled and laid back album, really easy to listen to,if that makes sense

Interesting. I got an LP copy of Revolver last Christmas and listened to it over and over so for me Revolver is totally wintry.

I love that though,how we can listen to the same thing as fans,and get different things from the songs, different moods, different experiences, and how a certain track or album can make us think of something or someone in particular (for example, whenever I hear Norwegian Wood ,I think of my mum,as it’s her favourite Beatles song). It’s good for a forum though,as it gives different points of view, and makes for good debate

The albums I tend to play the most are Revolver , Magical Mystery Tour and Abbey Road . All three are brilliant but its probably between Revolver and MMT for me, I think Revolver is their best but Magical Mystery was my first Beatles album, so maybe MMT, nah can’t decide 🙂
