5 stars Although I'm yet to give my money to Michael Jackson, Revolver is my favorite Beatles album. I really haven't got much to say, I guess the greatness just leaves you without words. From start to finish, the record is full of excellent songs. Taxman rocks. Eleanor Rigby is just one of the best Beatles songs ever in all it's orchestrated glory. I'm Only Sleeping.. Just beautiful. Drugs may be 'bad' but they're responsible for such great songs. This is the case with the LSD inspired "She Said, She Said" and the Mary Jane praising "Got To Get You Into My Life" which are both personal favorites of mine. The only low point on the album is "Yellow Submarine" yet even that is very good and an amusing oddity among all the great songs. The album closes with another classic and a personal favorite, the awesome "Tomorrow Never Knows".

Essential prog? Eh, only two songs are barely over 3 minutes long. But it is a definite 5 star masterpiece.

Peace, love and rock'n'roll to all.

Jimsey | 5/5 |
