4 stars Taxman is a nice rock song that in a way is almost the origon of Punk. It most certainally has all the anger and political lashings it needs!

Eleanor Rigby is the first highlight of the album, although no Beatle plays a single note! This masterpiece is just the voices of the Beatles and a string quartet. It is very very impressive, and is best played on a rainy day.

I'm Only Sleeping is a trippy song with a lot of backwards guitar effects. It puts me in a very dreamy state.

Love You To is a Harrison song, and it shows the start of the Indian influence on Beatles music.

Here, There and Everywhere is a lot like Paul's big hit Yesterday.

Yellow Submarine. Need I say more? This song is a disgrace.

The Beatles get the drug songs flowing with She Said She Said. This song would lead the way for many more great songs on future albums in the same vain (vein. :-))

Good Day Sunshine is a great song with some clever orchestration from George Martin. He really was the third dimension to the Beatles.

And Your Bird Can Sing is a lot like the old Beatles, just pop songs that are better than pop songs ever were and ever will be.

For No One is, if you can call it that, the low point of the album (excluding of course the sickening Yellow Submarine. I hate Ringo.)

Doctor Robert is a catchy song that is most certainly a great addition to the album.

Got to Get You into My Life is one of my personal favorite Beatle songs (though I like Earth Wind And Fire's version of the song better.) Very catchy.

The Beatles sure know how to close an album. Tomorrow Never Knows is the "A Day In The Life" of Revolver. The sound on this classic is absolutely incredible, and keep in mind that this is 1966! Truely jaw dropping!
