5 stars Revolver remains, to this day, the Beatles quintessential masterpiece. Recorded in a period of time when the world was young and young minds were alive with wonder. 1966. The sudden entrance to "Eleanor Rigby" is so antique-ish. The Beatles changed the rules of pop music.

When Lennon said the Beatles or the blues was like a chair, what I think he was saying is that the band had crafted a new Old chair. I knew this was going to be difficult. After "Here There and Everywhere" "Yellow Submarine" comes in a such a unique pitch/key. It's remarkable.

This album, unfortunately, is about Death. and taxes. All throughout Lennon is referring to the other side. "Got To Get You Into My Life" is Pauls reference to pot.....(what can I do.. what can I be..... sounds like cannibis.. but who cares. I'm afraid Lennon, this time, decided to end the Band.

When we were young we would listen to the entrance of "Good Day Sunshine" and pretend we were mock Lincoln assasins. We burned army men in the back yard. "Revolver" is full of wonder. I think John was truly saying goobye on this album, somehow knowing what an untimely death he had in front of him. John was, after all, first and foremost, the true leader of this unique, gifted band from Liverpool, England.
