^^ No, it's the perfect length;  the Beatles knew not to beat something to death, and that the pure distillation of a song or theme would have more emotional impact.

My favourite is Abbey Road. I have never been the biggest Beatles fan.
I am currently digging:

Hawkwind, Rare Bird, Gong, Tangerine Dream, Khan, Iron Butterfly, and all things canterbury and hard-psych. I also love jazz!

Please drop me a message with album suggestions.

I agree

Kind of a tangent, but a while back I heard a live recording of a band, I think Van Halen, covering The Who's "Baba O' Riley;" and they switched the studio outro with "Tomorrow Never Knows" to great effect. I've never heard that recording again - might have been a bootleg?

I've never understood the buzz about "Tomorrow Never Knows", nor ever will ... even after watching the PH video Dean posted. I think the song's just a mess. (I don't expect you to relate.)

Eh, ... I feel like a penny hit the top of my head after being dropped off the top of the Eiffel Tower. You haven't heard two and you've already made up your mind about the one you did being the only great one?

Perhaps if you would have experienced it in real time it would be different.

Unless you were alive in the 1960s and of an age where you could appreciate music I don't think it is possible to fully comprehend what Tim is saying about having experienced it in real time, this does not mean that people younger than that cannot understand or like the song, it has nothing to do with taste, but in grasping the cultural significance of the song in context, in its own time-frame. Hammill was not exaggerating when he said that once it has been heard everything changes, you cannot go backwards - he did not mean that once someone in the 21st Century heard it, he means that once people in 1966 heard it and the whole cascade of consequence that ripples out from that - it altered the whole of music forever. 

There is no comparable modern event in music that you can draw a parallel to. Not one.

^ I don't disagree. I guess this is really a part of the generational gap.

No. It's nothing to do with the generation gap.

Are we talking TNK?  I wasn't "there", but I can well imagine how it blew people's minds.  It blows my mind!
