    Best Beatles Album

    Had a bit of a Beatles weekend, with some good TV devoted to the 40th anniversary of Peppers, and then teaching the babies the words to Abbey Road (they loved it of course). But I was thinking, Peppers has never been my favourite Beatles album, great though it is. What are the thoughts of CWers? Particularly interested in the views of Gelman & Matt79.

    Please note that the poll I have included only contains the eleven albums they released when together. Magical Mystery Tour was originally an EP (i have the second 45 of it ) and Yellow Submarine isn't a proper album.

    Vote accordingly.

    edit - I know in the States the albums were a little different, and I'm not sure about Oz. Well that's tough, the UK titles are the real ones

    Interesting order. I find it really hard to rank them as the best changes from day to day.

    And I told you, MMT doesn't count some gun stuff on it though

    Sgt Pepper for mine.

    Because it's the best known fabs album I think there's almost a tendency to underrate it & say "well it's good, but surely it can't have been that special", but it bloody was, you know.

    My top three would be:

    Sgt Pepper
    Revolver
    The White Album


    Don't rate Let It Be at all, really. The original version was ruined by Spector's production & I haven't been sufficiently arsed to buy the "naked" version.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    I don't know why so many people don't rate it tbh. Two of Us, Let it Be, I've Got a Feeling, I Me Mine and Across the Universe are amongst my all time favourites. Gets unfairly treated imo.
