4 stars The Beatles made a leap of faith in most of their tracks for The white album, with revolution 9 argurably eaither making or breaking the album, this track influenced some of the chaotic instrumentals. Paul's happy jazz band rythems and hopefull tunes are well balanced with John's raw aproach to life, it also has John's most sentimental, open piece of music with Julia. A song about his mother which gives gosebumps to the listner with his airy, ghost like vocal's and tune. Hearing is like hearing his heart sing out in pain. A clear step away from "Yeah! Yeah!" type Beatles songs. This album is bursting with emotion and creative gold. It influential near and far. It feels compleate and whole, the only let down being "Good Night" being sung by Ringo. A song that was ment as a goodbye lullaby for Julian was taken of him by John not singing his emotions into it. John could have breathed life into this track but brushed it off onto Ringo. Overall a exciting album with much contained in it.This album influenced prog accross the board, perhaps the Beatles most experimental, with their trademark sense of humour shown on such tracks as the zany Honeypie. A good addition to any serious prog collector, curious of some of the influences of prog. However this album may dissappoint some for not being progressive enough, but this was 1968 not 1973, so an important album in the history of prog and most will be satisfied with this album.
