Ranking The Beatles Catalogue

I've been listening to The Beatles today for some reason. Then after listening to Abbey Road again for the first time in several months I think, I hopped on amazon and ordered LOVE. Can't wait to hear that. But anyway, my realization today was that Abbey Road really IS the finest album ever produced. There's almost no point in even talking about it, because I couldn't begin to explain why it's so amazing without writing a thesis paper on it. And now I'm listening to Sgt. Pepper's and realized that it's quite unfair that this album is usually regarded as the best of all time, if not just the best Beatles album, because I really wouldn't even rank it in the top 3 beatles albums. Not to say it isn't ONE OF the best albums ever. But still. So I figured I'd work out my top 5.

1. Abbey Road

2. Revolver

3. Rubber Soul

4. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

5. The Beatles (The White Album)

good thread.

i'd have to say:

1. Abbey Road

2. Magical Mystery Tour

3. White Album

4. Sgt. Peppers

5. Rubber Soul


I definitely agree with you about Abbey Road. There's not a better moment than the last 3 minutes of "I Want You(She's So Heavy)"!

btw, you'll Love "Love".

Personally the specific part of Abbey Road that completely blows me away EVERY time I listen to this album is the 3 minutes of Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight. Somehow it's beauty still catches me by surprise to this very day.

I'll bite:

1. Revolver
2. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
3. Abbey Road
4. The White Album
5. Rubber Soul

Revolver could be one of the most ground-breaking albums ever recorded. Plus, it's almost flawless and has "Tomorrow Never Knows"

Oh, and Love is definitely one of the coolest things I've ever heard.

It has its faults, the truncated Hey Jude, some transitions, but other than that, it's flawless.

The "Tomorrow Never Knows / Within You Without You" mix is the greatest thing ever, I love it.

I read something about iTunes having exclusive rights over the catalog for 3-4 months before enhanced CDs are released.
