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.

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 ). 

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, boys. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

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.
