Beyond that, Revolver has Tomorrow Never Knows, which is one of the most exciting tracks of the era from a sonic point of view.
Granted. Tomorrow Never Knows is mindblowin' in any era, and always will be, but songs like For No One, Good Day Sunshine and And Your Bird Can Sing (which I adore), are unlikely ro excite people as much as Morning Glory and Champagne Supernova.

"Tomorrow Never Knows what it doesn't know to soon"

I think you've got your personal pronouns a bit muddled up here.

It's more like trying to choose which one of the Golden Girls you'd rather do.

Please stop with the snide remarks towards others and just discuss the topic.

That's just fact. Revolver and Pepper's excitability is more due to the impact the albums had in their contemporary setting, even though they are fucking phenomenal in their own right today anyway

That is NOT a fact, you're insane. Maybe a philistine would think Oasis sounds better, but I don't believe that for a second. The reason The Beatles have survived this long, and why they continue to be so popular, is not solely because of their influence. It's because people still listen to it for the first time and think it sounds fresh and exciting.

Just because you and the people you associate with don't find it as "exciting and exhilirating" says more about the listeners involved than the artist.

Unbelievable.

We're done. I'm not giving anymore chances of people being able to discuss things maturely in this thread, because it is pretty obvious that it isn't going to happen.
