I was working at a ski shop for years and while I was in the back workng on skis I would have this playing pretty much everyday. It's really solid from start to finish.

I heard on the news a few weeks back that Paul is throwing Ringo a bone after all these years and are going to play together again..way to wait until George was dead you fucks.

Jeez, man, if the white album doesn't get five pickles, then what the holy hell does?

I'm not sure if this album lives up to say, the complete awesomeness off Rubber Soul, or the re-playability of Abbey Road, but I do enjoy it.

I absolute adore Helter Skelter.


I bet Manson is still waiting for that race war.

Not to be a nit picker or anything, but it's "kept her apart from the THINGS that she loved", not.

Truly, awesomeness is contained within the thirty songs on the album. Not much else there is to say---I mean, what CAN you say? It's the Beatles near the apex of their creativity. I personally don't like how people disparage it as merely four solo albums lumped together; as I believe you mentioned, it really allows their personalities to shine through. One cannot doubt that that is as awesome an experience on a Beatles album as there was (until maybe Abbey Road, but, then, all opinions in this world are debatable to some degree). This was the closest you could get into their minds as individual artists rather than as a group until they broke up (...maybe after Wings for McCartney, but, as I'd mentioned, debatable).

Personally, my favorite cuts from the album seem to vary from time to time, but I've always loved "Rocky Raccoon", "I'm So Tired", "Revolution 1", "Don't Pass Me By", and "While My Guitar Gently Weeps".

Really glad to see this review here. I honestly never expected anything focused on the Beatles on this site. :-)

great album. amazing how it stands up 40 YEARS later! You really can't describe with mere words how superb this album is. One of the few things I got from my dad when he passed away was this on vinyl. still play it to this day. I also laminated the awesomely cool poster that came with it. You can't get the scope of the poster from just the CD booklet. "Blackbird" "Bungalow Bill" "Piggies" "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" shit you could list every song on this album and say that each one is the best...because they are.

thanks for the great review Mr. Burbank. much appreciated.

There's no doubt it's a great album, but for my money their best ones are Revolver and Rubber Soul.

I enjoy Lennon's solo work far more for some reason but all the Beatles catalog is pretty awesome. But I have to say as far as trippy brit bands go Pink Floyd is my all time favorite.
