What about Heroes? (Genuinely curious if it's going to be there, it was pretty high up on my list)

#24 - The Beatles - The White Album



Not their finest album, but it has its moments.

Quote:
This album would be good if it wasn't full of trashy filler songs which drag the album down. This is the equivalent to Pink Floyd's "The Wall."
Quote:
1/10

One of their best.
Quote:
I DON'T KNOW WHO THESE GUYS ARE, BUT THIS IS DEFFINATELY THE WORST ALBUM THAT I'VE EVER HEARD. THIS BAND HAS ABSOLUTELY NO POTENTIAL FOR COMMERCIAL SUCCESS!!! YUCK!!!
Quote:
Dear people who have rated White Album as one of the best records ever made, please go and pull your heads out of your asses. This collection of unimaginative, moronic and disgusting pop songs should be the best world has you to offer? Especially the bluesy and wo-hoo-have-a-fun-time-rock n' roll - songs are all clumsy and embarrassing to the extreme. "Honey Pie" must be the worst of the bunch. If all these songs were made by a lesser band it wouldn't matter half as much, but as this record, among the other Beatles records, is so revered and even worshipped by so many people around the world in many generations there really should be something worthy in them. Of course lots of this religion-like blindness has to do with not only nostalgia but being the most famous band in the galaxy creating a vicious cycle of neverending admire of mediocrity and worse. People believe the art of The Beatles really has to be marvellous as everybody else says so and they have heard the songs so many times in many occasions it becomes the unshakeable truth. Naturally The Beatles has an important place in bringing some nice ideas to the mainstream with their psychedelic records and most of all encouraging young people to form bands. But as creators of at least decent records they are incapaple of. They can't even fill that cap of talent with their singing and playing, as those have never been anything special either (if you don't count specially annoying).

Besides "I Will" (having heard a much better cover of it before) and "Helter Skelter" listening this the whole way through was a complete waste of time. It was pretty much what I suspected, so I should have just stuck to my gut instinct. Well I got what I asked for for being curious, but the good thing is I have no need whatsoever to hear this again. The only way I could pretend this to be a great record in the slightest way, is to hit my head with a basebal bat a few good times. Well actually hitting myself with a baseball bat would be more enjoyable than listening this audio diarrhea ever again.
Quote:
This has got to be the most overrated album of all times. There is only one really good song on the album: "While My Guitar Gently Weeps". I will never get bored with hearing that masterpiece. The rest of the songs though are either mediocre or - excuse my french - pure scheiße.

What I think has happened here is the "Metallica phenomenon". People who didn't like heavy metal music back in the 80's, still said they liked Metallica. Only 'cause it was cool to like Metallica. Same thing here. People think that this must be a really good album, since so many people like it. Or at least claim they like it. Well, you can't fool me, because I have listened to this album several times over the period of the last 20 years.

Or - at the age of 35 - maybe I'm still too young for the world's most famous double album. Only time will tell...
Quote:
Wow. The Beatles are human it appears. I was blown away by Sgt. Pepper's, Revolver and Rubber Soul, but this absolutely sucks. There are a few keepers here, but nearly everything else is horrible. Keepers include, "Back in the U.S.S.R.", "Dear Prudence", "Glass Onion", "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da", "The Continuing Story of Bungalow Bill", "I'm So Tired", "Blackbird", and "Rocky Raccoon." Other than that everything else is either mediocre or totally blows.

I mean, if this was a normal Beatles album with only 14 songs, and the ones that I like were in it, and there were five sub par ones then you'd have a good album. But thirty songs that's not a concept album? That's just way too much. Skip this shit.

The album is rarely atop many lists, so I'd say very unlikely.

I doubt it, to be honest.

"Heroes" is probably his finest track, but it's kind of uneven apart from that.

Yeah, I kinda thought about it for a second, and realized, not a chance.

Bowie had a good run, I'm surprised he had two in the top thirty, but very pleased.

I reaaaallly reallly don't like the White Album. I know I may act like I don't like the Beatles, but for the most part it's simply that I think they're overrated, and I do really like some of their stuff (there, enjoy that confession), but I truly, truly do not like the White Album.

The White Album?

Should I be happy that half of a great album made it or sad about it being made out of so much filler?

I'll settle for both, I guess.

I love The Beatles, but there's too much I don't like on The White Album for it to be a favorite of mine.

I was thinking A Night at the Opera must not be too far off.

The White Album is a mess.
