4 stars The 1967 album "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" blew the music scene and the public of that time away. It was something no-one had ever heard before. In hindsight "Revolver" should have had the unanimously enthusiastic reception and respect that was credited to "Sgt. Pepper's". You could say REVOLVER was a sheer REVOLution in rock music. The title couldn't be more appropriate. The first progressive song ever is on this record: "Tomorrow never knows". It doesn't have the epic lenght a genuine progsong is supposed to have, but it was certainly revolutionary in the way it was sung and played with the backward guitars and all. The only drawback on this album is the fact that most song are faded out fairly quickly at a point where you think "Mm, that tastes morish"). But I guess that was the way records were produced in these days. In that respect "Sgt. Pepper's" is the real revolution in rock history. Production techniques were far better on the latter. Therefore four stars.
