5 stars My particular point of rhetoric for this album is to challenge the conception that it is 'overated' or that is was good 'for its time'. This is simply one of the most perfectly balanced, arranged, and inventive albums released in rock music. It's like claiming that Jimi Hendrix was a pretty good guitarist 'for his time'. This album possessed an instrumental dynamic and color as revealing as Duke Ellington. Every song is built around hooks as mesmerizing as ONLY the Beatles could have concieved. Above all, the Beatles were professional song craftsmen refining their art to the point that studio innovation sounds as natural and profound as only a group of that talent could produce. All of their talent comes into play and overachieves on this album; and how anyone could miss this (I feel) would miss the pure enjoyment of this marvelous record.
