With the quarantine and whatnot, I've finally been going through a bunch of stuff I've skipped, and I'm curious if there's any I should give a chance based on others' rankings.

Here's mine so far.

GOAT:

Band On The Run , All Things Must Pass , Plastic Ono Band, Mind Games

Great:

McCartney II , McCartney, Ram , Imagine , Walls And Bridges , Venus And Mars , Chaos And Creation In The Backyard

Good:

George Harrison , Double Fantasy , Tug Of War , Beaucoups of Blues, Goodnight Vienna, Milk And Honey , Ringo, Cloud Nine

OK:

Wild Life , Red Rose Speedway , Living in the Material World, Dark Horse, Rock 'N' Roll

Bad:

Some Time In New York City , Electronic Sound

I've been hammering a lot of solo stuff lately.

Flaming Pie worth a listen. First Beatles solo album I had I think, as I got it when it came out, and it really is good. You can tell he was inspired by the Anthology work

This is actually a pretty good idea. As soon as I finish listening to the solo records I'll come back.

back in highschool I made a mega ranking of all of their albums. My top five was something like this

ATMP

Ram

BoTR

Walls And Bridges

Extra Texture

Imagine and Plastic Ono Band are of course in the top ten, as are Flaming Pie and Chaos and Creation

Will probably forget a fair chunk so just the ones off the top of my head

Top class 

All Things Must Pass , Walls And Bridges , Band On The Run , Ram , Plastic Ono Band, Imagine

Great

Living in the material world, mind games, Venus And Mars , mccartney, Flaming Pie , Memory Almost Full , Brainwashed

Good

Double Fantasy , Speed of Sound, McCartney II , Driving Rain

Not so good

Sometime in New York City, Press To Play

Double Fantasy would have been higher up if he had done it on his own
