Aygo, when did you get into U2's music? Which year/ album? I'm genuinely curious.

Revolver and Rubber Soul sound (to me at least) like very similar albums. Sure Revolver has a bit of experimentation; mainly Tomorrow Never Knows but Sgt Peppers is way out there compared to their previous works.

Sgt Peppers does have some stuff like When I'm 64 or She's Leaving Home which reminds me of earlier stuff but the majority is much more experimental IMO...

In fact, since it's the last track on Revolver; Tomorrow Never Knows almost works as the bridge between genres. I would call that one song the turning point but not Revolver the album itself...

Well, I knew U2 since a few years ago, but I was introduced more closely in 1994. I think I started to become a fan fall 1996/early 1997, but it was not only because of "Pop" (since it was released by this time), it was because I knew already many of their catalogue.
But I'm curious... why the question, Zoots?

because its beyond zoots's comprehension how anyone familiar with u2's material before htdaab can list htdaab as his or her favourite album.

am i right or am i right, zoots?

Shut up, lad! Are you owner of people's mind now?

Do you know the reasons that lead me to list HTDAAB as my fav album? Learn to respect the others!

When you put it that way, you're right.

Rubber Soul to me is pop / folk music, and I think of songs like Paperback Writer and Day Tripper to fit more this that era than anything. But when I listen to Revolver, sure some of the songs reflect a bit like Rubber Soul but are presented differently.

I can't regard most of Rubber Soul to Revolver's sound, but I can with Sgt. Pepper you know?

I totally understand what you're saying though.

Yup, pretty much.

But I respect Aygo's opinion however daft I may find it.
