For many years this is the only Beatles album I owned.

AND YOUR BIRD CAN SING is the standout here. ms.RIGBY shoulda been its B-side. TOMORROW NEVER KNOWS made a dynamic introduction over the title credits, for the underrated gothic thriller, THE CRAFT. Even though it was a cover version, it maintained its power. TAXMAN features a wild guitar solo by the band's bass man. I WANT TO TELL YOU was covered years later, by heavy rocker Ted Nugent. I prefer the somber, reflective version featured on this album. oh my, oh my the hits just keep on coming from this album. to me, it is the white albums's only serious competition. and that is high praise indeed. SHE SAID SHE SAID is the only song of theirs that paul was not a participant. listen and hear, if you can, the difference.

This is a good collection of songs; none stick out as particularly awful or uncomplementary with the others. A few songs in particular were a great surprise, as they are not on greatest hits compilations: tracks 4, 5, 7, and most of all the extraordinary and outstanding track 14, which sounds like it could have been released four or five years ago by an alternative rock band.

Released in the Summer of 1966 - Revolver contains one of my all-time favourite Beatles' songs, ever. And that song is, of course, Eleanor Rigby.... (*Watch remix music-video*).... Out of this CD's 13 remaining tracks - I also like Taxman and Good Day Sunshine, as well.

Revolver would be the Beatles' much-anticipated 7th studio album. This offering is, indeed, a perfect example of the Fab Four during their "psychedelic" period in pop music history.

Upon its release, Revolver remained on the top of the record charts (on both sides of the Atlantic) for 34 weeks, although its reception in the USA was initially a mighty cool one due to the controversy surrounding John Lennon's arrogant and badly-timed statement that the Beatles had become (get this!) "bigger than Jesus". (Ha! What a total blunder that was!)

Looking at the track listing, I can only wonder how I've let so much time pass since I last listened to this album. It's perfect, and it's going back in heavy rotation.

I knew all the songs but never listened to the album before. It transported me back in time to '66 and imagining what people thought when they put this on the turntable for the first time. What a trip

Arguably their finest album.

The release of this album marks a transformative time not only for the Beatles, but for their audience as well I suspect.
Commonly known as the "psychedelic period", this album tour is more famously renowned for the controversial John Lennon quote about the band becoming "bigger than jesus" then it is for being the very last one for the fab four. Also of note is the cover artwork which was awarded a Grammy.

One of these is the US version, the other is the UK version with all the songs. Hard to tell which is which, but get the UK one if you can.
