Prog Reviewer
5 stars People so often credit the incredible Sgt. Pepper to the invention of the beginning of progressive music. Somehow, I find that very difficult to believe. While Sgt. Pepper is more experimental, this is really where thier experimintantion with Indian music, going against typical music layout, and having more complexity and a pshycadelic feel began. They also used backward tape loops, which indicate experimintation. The opening, TAXMAN is a great hard rock song with a great solo by Harrison. While everything here's great (with the exception of YELLOW SUBMARINE), the standout on the album are the two songs using more Indian-type classical music. The better of the two is LOVE YOU TO, though both are great. In fact, the whole album's incredible. This is where the first prog band started making progressive-type music, and is an incredible album, not just on a progressive scale.

Really, this is a must own for anyone. For prog historians, collectors, or just average people who listen to prog, this is something that will make anyone's prog collection better.

J-Man | 5/5 |
