A bunch of random sounds put together doesn't = adventurous/interesting. It's lazy and tedious for the listener.

Now "Happiness is a Warm Gun" - THAT'S a fucking interesting song. It's amazing how well the drastic changes in structure work so wonderfully together.

Radiohead liked it so much they made their own song like this called Paranoid Android.

And liked Sexy Sadie so much they redid it and called it Karma Police.

I jus' sayin'...

Not necessarilly. What if the sounds are fun to listen to?

Who cares if there is no structure, as long as the sounds are good.

Which, for me, makes Rev 9 much more interesting to to listen to than unremarkable songs like Yer Blues and Rev 1.

Rev 9 certainly isn't tedious. It's pretentious and self-indulgent, but not tedious.

Alright, who the hell voted for Piggies?

That song is factually brilliant and very clever.

I agree. So is Honey Pie...it's creative and a successful genre experiment.

In fact, I reckon The White Album, despite being much maligned, is successful in most of the genre experiments attempted.

The album was never meant to be about cohesion. It was all about slapping 30 tracks together on a compilation.

Good Night is one of my top best tracks from the album and works beautfiully as a closing track and with Ringo's vocal, and who'd have thought The Beatles could ever have sounded like that!

the fact that only EIGHT out of [at the time of writing] twenty four votes are for the piece of garbage that is Revolution 9 is appalling, disgusting and mind-boggling in equal measure. Shame on you remaining 16.

Rev 9 > Don't Pass Me By

Or rather

garbage > Don't Pass Me By

I am SO glad I accidentally closed a window in which I was in the middle of agreeing with you in the Radiohead thread.

Seriously...The Beatles have done FAR worse than Don't Pass Me By...like "Garbage"

you and your Airplane! references.

"Would you like some cream?"
"No, I like my coffee black, like my men."
