I'm pretty new to The Beatles, ive ignored them for most of my life. Ive heard most of the classics like Hey Jude etc. etc., but I dont own any albums. I was thinking of buying Revolver as it seems to be hailed as their masterpiece. Is this the album I should get first?


I'd say that you should get Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band. It's an album you can listen all the way through, over and over without it getting boring. It's also fun to listen to with a little "inspiration"

My favourite is definitely Beatles for Sale.

I just love every song on that album!

Poppy piece of beatlecrap. Which is million times better than regular crap, but still

Sorry, I just don't like the earlier Beatles stuff. Some of it's good, but I don't like it.

In revolver they still tend to play play more as a band

Yeah, the only problem with their albums from the White Album onwards they weren't as together as a band. You can really tell by listening to the music.

Also after Sgt Peppers, they no longer were as unique as they were when they first started, so alot of the songs whilst amazing weren't as groundbreaking as their early material - bands were starting to catch up with them.

Haha OK.
I enjoy a good deal of today's pop music so it's no surprise that 60s pop gets me so excited.

Yeah, they definately sold farrr more then Led Zep.

^probably
but i would suggest either revolver or sgt peppers as a first beatles album. sgt peppers was the first album i ever owned, and i still LOVE to listen to it. when i tried to import it to itunes a few years ago, it was so scratched it wouldnt import, because i had played it so many times.

there is one thing i do not understand about the beatles...hey jude. i HATE that song. its just so awful, i dont know why everyone else likes it so much.

Hey Jude and Let it Be are great songs. But they are far, far, far overrated.

i love let it be though. that is a beautiful song.

about hey jude, i have no idea why i hate it so much. i mean, its just so repetitive and boring. its kind of bizarre, seeing as i love almost everythiing else the beatles did.
#144
The Beatles have a ton of really good underated songs though. They have songs that are so good like Happiness is a Warm Gun and I Am The Walrus, those songs are just great but no one ever really hears them.
#145
I don't like Hey Jude at all.
Songs that are sooo repetitively happy do not do it for me.

I think their earlier stuff is underrated by most Beatles fans, it is quality. Their later stuff is obviosuly better though.

The early stuff is more catchy and more fun to sing along to IMO...the later stuff is more technically difficult. So like you said, it just depends on my mood. But of course the songwriting and singing is always great.
#151
^ The singing and songwriting never detriorated. Just great music from start to finish. That's why their breakup was bittersweet. They just knew that enough was enough and it was time to get on with their lives.

As I've heard them say...if they would have stayed together it would have just been their music they made solo. It was time for them to go their separate ways...and that way we have 4 albums out instead of just one
#153
I totally agree that the "later" era (I characterize that as "Sgt Pepper" and beyond) were best. For me though, it's basically a dead heat contest between the "White Album" and "Abbey Road" (I have yet to hear all of "Let it Be").
They're actually pretty different- "The White Album" sort of has little snippets of songs ("I'm So Tired" and "Everybody's Got Something to Hide etc" should've both been at least 2 minutes longer, they're so good), and "Abbey Road" has more...I hate to use pop songs, but "single-material," and that medley can't be heard without one song missing.

Which version of George's solo in Let it Be do people prefer? I think the album version's solo is alot harsher and makes the song more gritty, while the single's solo is a lot more melodic and is like the tune without being the same. Then there's the understated solo in the Let it Be film. Man I wish I could make solos like old Georgey boy.
