5 stars This is it, if someone as to hown only one album by The Beatles, this is the one to have. Every song here is way ahead of it's time!!! Just listen to "Tomorrow Never Knows" and i defy someone to find something that came out in 66 that was as ingenius and inventive then that. For me, the force of the band was the ginius melody writhing of Lennon & McCartney, the fact that they had lots of freedom creatively + they had the best producer, George Martin, to reproduced all of their idea into recording. Revolver shows that perfectly, Lennon whanted some backwards effects into a song, he had just to ask George Martin to do it, and he would do it. I like all of the song in it, even "Yellow Sumarine". But my favorite are the groovy opener that is "Taxman", "Eleanor Rigby", "Doctor Robert" and of course "Tomorrow Never Knows".

So in the end, 5/5 for the music, 5/5 for the production and 5/5 for the impact it had in 66 and still as a lot in the music today. The first truly progressive album. Essential, a must!!! 5 Stars.
