I love this album. Not because it's a Beales album, but because it's so innovative. It must've takes a couple creative minds to come up with this album. The sound of this album is hard to describe because there are so many sounds on it. You got the opening "Sgt. Pepper's Lonley Hearts Club Band" and then you get the later "When I'm Sixty-Four." Two totally different sounding songs on the same album. I really do love the sounds on this album. The album sucessfully gives you a taste of rock, pop, psychedelic, and Eastern genres. The Beatles give a great sound for this album.

The Beatles are known for having espically great lyrisc. John and Paul are lyricall geniuses. George can do a good job with lyrics too. "Within You Without You" is an example of George's greay lyrical skills. I love listening to the lyrics of "Within You Without You" because not only do the lyrics match perfectly with the music, but the lyrics make you think. You get involved with listening. John is great here too. "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" is a great, great song. Again, the lyrics matches perfectly with the music. The Beatles pull it off again and write some of the best lyrics I've ever heard.
Overall Impression — 9
"Sgt. Pepper's" is one of my favorite Beatles albums. In fact, it was my first album of theirs. My favorite songs would have to be "Within You Without You", "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds", and "A Day In The Life". The Beatles are excptionally great song writers and are able to make this album perfect in every sense. Lyrically a masterpiece, musically stupendous, this album blows me away. I'll be listening to this over and over again. This album is a must for anyone looking for something great to listen to.
