ConsNone of any significance

1966 as far as I'm concerned, was THE year of the 1960s. We had a long, dry and very hot summer...I'd settled into secondary school nicely, and the nation seemed to be riding high on a cloud of euphoria. It's quite likely true that I was viewing certain things through rose-coloured specs, but...

The thing with The Beatles is that their music has become so legendary that all their songs have taken on the same sort of power that nursery rhymes have. Everybody knows the words for 'Polly Put The Kettle On', and everyone knows the words for "Yellow Submarine". It reaches a point where you can...

“The transition album”

published 03/02/2004

ProThe Beatles

ConsNone

Hi there! The contract they signed was clear: two new albums released every year. But 1966 was kind of an exception, because this revolver would have been the only album released by the band this year. The reason, they were very tired. 1965 hapened to be a good year, with this great 'Rubber soul'...

For me, not having really experienced Beatlemania first hand, I only have the music and the hype to work from. My parents often tell me stories about the band, and I would have loved to have been around at the time all their music came out, the hype and drugs and controversy that surrounded their...

“Revolutionary”

published 21/02/2001

ProThe beatles at their best

ConsNothing else will be this good

Mention this album in conversation and you are most likely to meet with the replies "the greatest album ever written!", or "not as good as Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band". Revolver, released in 1966 was the Beatles seventh album and was a radical departure from the previous six. Their...

With the young beat combo The Beatles topping the album charts all over the world recently, I thought it would be nice to dip into their back catelogue, because some who have only just been exposed to "1" may not be aware of the delights to be found on the best body of work the band created.

ConsPaul McCartney in love

I was born in 1975, after Paul McCartney stopped being the cool, drug abusing Beatle and when he was the soppy, bagpipe-loving member of Wings. I think this is why I managed to go 20 years without properly listening to a Beatles album, when I did though I was hooked. This is probably my second...

Ask most people to name their all time favourite Beatles album, and they would doubtless come up with Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, citing it for its innovation, inventiveness and experimentation and its startling attempt to push against what were then termed the boundaries of what...

“their greatest work”

published 17/08/2001

Prostunningly inventive, outstanding songs.

ConsYellow Submarine. 'Nuff said.

The Beatles. The biggest band of all time? Certainly. The greatest? Probably not (I think that honour falls upon Led Zeppelin). They did revolutionize music, though. And not once, but twice in their career. This album mark's the second coming of the band. Forget Sgt. Pepper's. Revolver is without...

What's better: Revolver or Sgt Pepper's? It's a question that has been documented at tedious length. Rock critics have argued about it for decades, and Q has (predictably) talked utter mince about it. But no-one has come to a widely accepted conclusion. But everyone admits that they're both...

The black and white cover designed by Klaus Voormann, should give you a large clue as to the psychodelic slant the music on this album has. More cohesive than should be expected considering the drug intake, this album is Beatles to the core. Skilled musicianship. Magnificent melodies. Intriguing...

“A good album”

published 28/06/2000

: Rubber Soul was a significant move forward for the Beatles, but it was eclipsed by its startlingly complex followup, Revolver. All the rules fell by the wayside with Revolver, as the Beatles began exploring new sonic territory, lyrical subjects and styles of composition. It wasn't just Lennon...
