4 stars For it's time, this was a very advanced album. Much of the press, and the Beatles fans back then, just didn't understand this album, and probably never will. This was a band that has grown up. And this album is really the definition of proto prog.

George Martin's production on this album is revolutionary. The sound of the bass, the strings in Glass Onion, the honky tonk piano in the silly Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, the warbling backing track in While My Guitar Gently Weeps, it's all perfect. And don't get me started about Revolution Number 9.

With this many tracks, there are bound to be a few clunkers, but they are just a few. And after all these years, there are some track that I just never need to hear again. Still, this iis a great album.

Evolver | 4/5 |
