What is your favourite Beatles album and why?

For me it’s Revolver. That album sees the Beatles leaving their Mop Top phase and moving into psychedelia.

The Beatles invent The Jam (Taxman), the Chemical Brothers (Tomorrow Never Knows), Dexys Midnight Runners (Got To Get You Into My Life), ELO (Eleanor Rigby) and Oasis (She Said She Said).

Sgt. Pepper for me. Hearing A Day in the Life as a teenager blew me away. Coupled with the stunning album artwork and the sense of 'wow, I wasn't expecting this'.

I always liked HELP. It came out when I was still at primary school and with the accompanying "goofy" film must have made some kind of impact on me at that age. It was possibly the first time I took any interest in contemporary music. I still listen to it, but is it my favourite? If I must have a favourite, then yes I suppose it is!

Help is a good album. Full of hidden treasures that don’t get much airplay like It’s Only Love and I’ve Just Seen a Face.

I always say Rubber Soul when pushed to answer this question - i like how it relates to the earlier stuff and the later stuff (both of which I love for completely different reasons)

The only Beatles album I've really listened to and liked is Abbey Road. A good way to go out.

Only reason I logged in was to type this.

Now I am here, I'd probably plump for Abbey Road just for the brilliant segues on side two.

Revolver all the way.

All time favourite Beatles track though = A Day in the Life. So evocative and quite mental.

Rubber Soul for me too-every track a minor classic with Norwegian Wood possibly my favourite ever Beatles track.

The Beatles Live At The Star Club Hamburg 1962(German import) is pretty good as well.

Probably Revolver for me too, but I really like A Hard Days Noght as an album to just put on and listen all the way through, only about 30 mins and not a bad song on it, even if it is a little poppy

There’s a mental video of McCArtney wearing a plastic apron and a kipper tie whilst conducting the orchestra on A DAy in the Life.

Revolver as it shows the progression from beat to psych

Rubber Soul is great too - their most mod album

Didnt really have a favourite at the time - but I guess the one I listen too most often is the white album. Favourite EP definately Twist and Shout though.
