Listened to the remaster of Revolver today finally, still have no idea why it's loved so much of all their albums it's probably in my bottom three with Beatles for Sale and Yellow Submarine (if that even counts). I mean I love Eleanor Rigby and Tomorrow Never Knows, I even rate And Your Bird Can Sing pretty highly too but for the most part I find the album terribly boring.

Overrated? I'll agree with that, if conditionally. But terribly boring? I'm not at all sure about that, good sir or madam.

I guess Revolver just never really clicked with me at all, for all the times I've heard it it's still left no impression on me. I mean I couldn't tell you what several of the tracks even sound like. I mean I realise it's awesome that the Beatles started to experiment with their sound and come up with no ideas but I just don't enjoy what they did on this album. Songs like Love You To to me are just completely uninteresting, I mean it's cool and all that Harrison was playing a sitar but I don't think it's used to any real effect it gets slightly more interesting towards the end though.

The album features some of the finest moments of the Beatles career but at the same time to me it features some of the their least interesting moments as well. I appreciate the experimentation but I just don't think the songs are all that great

Keep in mind this is just an opinion, it's definitely not fact and I know I'm in a very small minority with it

Well, it's no Rubber Soul. I'll give you that.

Revolver ranks in the middle for me. Abbey Road, The White Album, and Magical Mystery Tour all rank higher. Of course, I can't really compare the earlier stuff with the later stuff due to how much different it is. I've grown to really appreciate and love the early stuff lately.

But it's got I'm Only Sleeeeeeping .....love the lethargy of that song, works so well with the Lyrics, and they do some of that reverse stuff as well.

I once found Revolver not terribly inspiring, but now think it to be one of their top three albums. I would also have to agree with Pitchfork that Lennon really comes into his own on the album: She Said She Said, I'm Only Sleeping, and of course Tomorrow Never Knows are all among his best work.

How can "She Said She Said," "I'm Only Sleeping," "Taxman," "Eleanor Rigby," and "Tomorrow Never Knows" be considered boring? I can understand not digging the experimentation, but this album is a perfect case of the whole being greater than the sum of its parts, at least for me. Even if certain songs don't particularly work, like "Love You To," it's still interesting to say the least. There's too much brimming under the surface of this album to dismiss it entirely; the cultural significance only adds to it, I think.

Also, Revolver is the best album LSD ever made. Fact.

Actually, the rise of Revolver's status the last ten years or so is because of exactly the OPPOSITE of this. Sgt. Pepper's was always considered the better "album" but song-for-song many felt Revolver was stronger, same with Rubber Soul.

Of course, yeah, the idea that this album is boring is ludicrous.

I can see that, more with Rubber Soul than the other three. I'd consider Revolver to be stronger song-by-song, too, but half of the album I'd listen to constantly (ie: the songs I listed above) and the other half I'd listen to in context of the album. When I apply the same thing to Sgt. Pepper, the ratio drops considerably, but it's still awesome.

Sgt. Pepper is quite the anomaly in that regard. I hardly ever listen to that album any more, as none of the songs particular grab me as much as those from other Beatles catalog cuts. Yet whenever I do it has to be in its entirety because its strengths are wholly built around the conceptualization of the "album" in this case. Certainly moreso than any of their other projects at least.

Here, There and Everywhere and For No One are two of my favourite songs off this album, both tend to be overlooked as well..

I wanted to say that the stereo mix of 'All My Loving' sounds pretty different from what I am used to. That is all.

I dig "For No One" a certain amount, too, but have never gotten into "Here, There, and Everywhere" for whatever reason. It always felt out-of-place for me, especially since something like "Rain" sits out as a B-side.
