Favorite Beatles Album?

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by calebplaysbass, Feb 25, 2006.

  1. Well there's obviously a very wide variety of Beatles albums and sounds to choose from so what's your favorite? Throw in a favorite song if you'd like. My favorite album is either Magical Mystery Tour or Sgt. Peppers. Favorite song definitely goes to I Am the Walrus. So weird with so many cool instrument parts. Fav bass line goes to Penny Lane or Come Together.

    Abbey Road, with a close second tie to Sgt. Pepper, Revolver, and
    Rubber Soul.

    Every Beatles album is great in its own way, but if I had to pick just one, it would be "Abbey Road" undoubtedly.

    Rubber Soul here too. Then a tie between Beatles For Sale and Revolver, then everything else.

    Abbey Road - love the "Mean Mr. Mustard" through "She Came In Through the Bathroom Window" run of song into song.

    Growing up it was the "red" compilation of hits from 1962-66. Cut me some slack - I was born in 1970!

    Tie between Abbey Road and White Album....Abbey Road has a much more concise album organization to it, but some of the songs on the White Album are beyond great (which has a nice "spur of the moment" randomness to it).

    I once had impure thoughts. Oh, and I pluck my ear hair.
  11. Sgt Peppers. Abbey Road. Revolver. Though A Hard Days Night is a sentimental favorite-- first got with somebody when that one was playing.

    I've been going through all my old Beatles CDs lately just because it was time, and I was just floored by Beatles For Sale (the one in between A Hard Days Night and Help!). Anybody who thinks Ringo didn't understand groove needs to live with this one for a while. He knew groove before it was called that.

    Yellow Submarine? :bag:

    i know it wasn't one of the more popular albums, but I grew up watching that movie and listening to that album (in the '90s, so not when it first came out or anything). That, and Sgt. Pepper. Both are great albums, imo.
