Favorite Beatles album

It's been done before, but it's worth doing again.

wow, great idea for a thread man, but hard choices... it's always so hard for me to pick a "favorite" anything, but out of these, damn.... i guess it would come down between Sgt Pepper and The White Album.... err, ok, i guess White Album, for sentimental value, but that's not meant to cut down the others in any way

Abbey Road, but just because it was the first Beatles album I ever bought.

I'd have to say a tie between Magical Mystery Tour and Abbey Road. MMT is sort of an underrated album, but that doesn't really say much.

<i>Rubber Soul</i> gets my vote. My second choice is <i>Revolver</i>. In my opinion, these two albums belong together as companion pieces, sort of as a double album that just happened to be released one album at a time. I've essentially always thought of them as two sides of the same coin: the Beatles exploring a musical sophistication they never had before and never looking back.

Artistically and aesthetically I think the best Beatles album would have to be Abbey Road. But if I just want to listen to some good Beatles I will listen to Revolver. Plus, Revolver has my absolute favorite Beatles song: For No One.

I'd have to go with Sgt. Pepper, just because it was the first of its kind, with each song basically melting into the other one. It messed up radio stations because the DJs didn't know when to stop the record after playing one of the songs.
My number two favorite would have to be the White Album.

I'm going with Sgt. Pepper because it and Rubber Soul are the only whole Beatles albums I've heard. And who cannot like the song "Lovely Rita"?

Weird, that song just came on (Revolver is on.) I adore this song.

And the poll is missing a few choiced. While I'm sure most people will choose later, more fully realized albums as their favorite (including me,) some of the earlier albums could definitely be a favorite for some.

Abbey Road does it for me, not only for the music but also because of what was behind it. It seems to me that after the "Let It Be" fiasco, they knew that they (and their fans) deserved a real great album. Calling George Martin back into the fold, they gave it 100% and really put out a masterpiece.

But like others have said, it's so hard to pick just one.

Yes, there are three studio-release albums missing from the choices (Please Please Me, Beatles For Sale, and Yellow Submarine). I ran this same poll on 3.0, and none of those three got any votes, so I left them off this time around.

Compliations and "best of" albums do not count in this poll.

Revolver. It signified one of the bigger changes in the Beatles and subsequentially, the music industry.

Before Revolver, everyone (including the fab four) where putting out albums that were essentially just a collection of singles. Revolver was a complete thought. You don't listen to just one song, you listen to the whole thing.

This concept matured with Sgt. Pepper and those that followed, but it started with Revolver. Brian Wilson has said he got the idea for Pet Sounds from listening to it. And, of course we all know that Pet Sounds led to Sgt. Pepper.


My other favorites would be Sgt. Pepper, followed by Abbey Road.

So-called "serious" composers usually pick out Revolver as the first significant pop album that could be passed off as true "art."

I'll never forget watching a documentary on the Beach Boys and listening to them tell the story of what happened when they first heard Sgt. Pepper.

They had finished Pet Sounds (exactly as you said) as an "answer" to Revolver, and they were all feeling pretty good about themselves. They were all in the studio one evening having a meeting and feeling smug, and then someone walked in with an acetate dub of Sgt. Pepper.

After the first three songs, they stopped it, looked at each other, and said, "Oh shit!"

It's understandable they wouldn't get votes, which is why them being left off the list gave me more of a "huh" than a "HEY!" reaction. Please Please Me and For Sale are both great, but I couldn't see them being my favorite. And anyone who would say Yellow Submarine is their favorite Beatles album should be shot.

It's difficult to pick the best Beatles album because most of them only had 2 or 3 great songs on them and lot of filler. 10 albums, some of which had 15 to 20 songs and the majority of people only only remember 10 to 20 different Beatles songs.
If there had been a 'Greatest Hits' option on the poll then I think that would've won, hands down.

White Album. Classic and maybe one of the best albums ever.
