5 stars For the last time, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds is not referring to LSD.

Whew, with that said, let's get to the beef. And there's a lot of meat to chew, much more than Revolver. This is the first real 'drug' album by the Fab Four. In fact, John admitted many times that LSD was the main stuff for inspirations, expiring the last breaths of pot in Revolver. Fine, the Bealtes were experimenting drugs in the 60's, and so your mom did too, right? From the cover to the technology used, everything was going much faster, much brighter, much groovier. The amount of goodies in Pepper is more abundant than any other record before, making every number a piece of history to remember.

Phil Collins said that when Pepper came out, every band was thinking: 'Oh wow, you can do that in studio now?!?'. Oh yeah, the first REAL advance in technology is not only audible but also tastable. Good jolly, this album is pure 3D extravanganza. Mostly every bit as it's progressive elements (except maybe for Getting Better or 64, Paul's fault) and they're d-y-n-o-m-i-t-e.

From the Who to Hendrix to Wilson, everybody will tell you how much ruckuss this album made and how much lumberjacking work it did to make rock n' roll progress. Thank you guys for so much work and good humor.

Who thought the most recognized record of all time was a progressive rock one?
