4 stars This was the biggest turning point for The Beatles. After 3 love focused pop songs, and 3 more albums that took the band in a bit of an experimental direction, here we see the cultivation of what the band can lead too and what will follow. While still retaining their early sort of flow, they knew that with a changing time, they knew love songs won't make them as big as they were in their hay day, so they simply got with the times in their own Beatles-ey way. I say Eleanor Rigby has to be their most progressive song they made. It is extremely different and interesting to listen too, and probably was the introduction to so many people back then too a more progressive and interesting music. Heck I say this is their most progressive album, aside from the white album. Not saying there wasn't any progressive rock back then but I feel like The Beatles established the genre to the public, whether they meant it or not. A very good album all around.
