Any Beatles fans?



http://www.thisdayinmusic.com has a poll to find outwhat is your favourite Beatles album.



Abbey Road has the most votes so far, then The WhiteAlbum, then Rubber Soul.



 Have a look if you fancy a vote.

Hmmm...

I can't pick.  I go with Revolver and Abbey Road.  

There were *fantastic* songs on every other album, of course, but the other albums didn't represent huge leaps from the ones preceding them.  White Album was interesting but really not finished to the quality of their previous work.  Sgt Pepper is simply overrated (although the Lennon material alone makes the album worth bothering with).  Let it Be has some of their best rock material but I don't think it's up to their standards (with or without Phil Spector's production).

i would probably go for Rubber Soul just for Norwegian Wood,probably their best song imo.
i agree With the Zebozoid,i think Sgt Pepper is over-rated,it just happened to be the right album at the right time for the right people [just like the stone roses album].Let It Be feels 'unfinished' to me and the White Album 'rushed' [plus its got that god awful Revolution 9 on it].
so yeah,Rubber Soul just ahead of Abbey Road...

With The Beatles: Of their early albums, this is my fav, it has a lot of energy.
Rubber Soul and Revolver: Both are so similar, and so rich in melody. I just love the new sounds added to their songs.
Abbey Road: A Masterpiece.

For me, at the moment it is Revolver. Songs like, And Your Bird Can Sing, Taxman, Im Only Sleeping, Eleanor Rigby, Here There and Everywhere, Good Day Sunshine And Tomorrow Never Knows are stand-out songs

Personal favorite is Abbey Road. It’s always been the one I listen to the most. In fact I need to buy the CD because the vinyl is worn out beyond recovery already!
Rubber Soul would be a close second.

Funny thing is that I have always listened to Harrison’s solo work as much as to the Beatles’ albums!!!

If I say: Love, do I get the boot then?

No, seriously I love it. But my favourite is The White album.

Fav. song: I am the walrus. At all times.

Beatles Rock Band is so much fun.  Serious.

Still only have one mic though so we can't do the harmony shit yet.

Oh if I had my way I'd have the whole kit!!

Sadly can't afford it; we just used our usual Rock Band setup.
