About the Album

With Revolver, the Beatles made the Great Leap Forward, reaching a previously unheard-of level of sophistication and fearless experimentation. Sgt. Pepper, in many ways, refines that breakthrough, as the Beatles consciously synthesized such disparate influences as psychedelia, art-song, classical music, rock & roll, and music hall, often in the course of one song. Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita." There's no discounting the individual contributions of each member or their producer, George Martin, but the preponderance of whimsy and self-conscious art gives the impression that Paul McCartney is the leader of the Lonely Hearts Club Band. He dominates the album in terms of compositions, setting the tone for the album with his unabashed melodicism and deviously clever arrangements. In comparison, Lennon's contributions seem fewer, and a couple of them are a little slight but his major statements are stunning. "With a Little Help From My Friends" is the ideal Ringo tune, a rolling, friendly pop song that hides genuine Lennon anguish, a la "Help!"; "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" remains one of the touchstones of British psychedelia; and he's the mastermind behind the bulk of "A Day in the Life," a haunting number that skillfully blends Lennon's verse and chorus with McCartney's bridge. It's possible to argue that there are better Beatles albums, yet no album is as historically important as this. After Sgt. Pepper, there were no rules to follow -- rock and pop bands could try anything, for better or worse. Ironically, few tried to achieve the sweeping, all-encompassing embrace of music as the Beatles did here. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide

Rated 4.6 out of 5★ by 5reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great music The quality is excellent and all of the songs bring back memories of a really happy time in my life. And amazingly, I still remember all the words. 06/02/2010
Rated 3 out of 5★ by I was disappointed that it came in a card/paper case instead of a nice jewel type case. Other than that, who can dis the Beatles? 09/03/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Brilliant Album! One of the best albums of all time if not the BEST!! I am 28 and I even realize that today's music can't hold a candle to this brilliance!! 'A Day in the Life' is my favorite song on this album and possibly the Beatle's strongest song in my opinion! There is a reason why Rolling Stone ranked this album #1 most influential album of all time. 01/02/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by masterpiece, timeless, too good for the radio The one thing George, John, Paul and Ringo communicate in this work; their love of music. 05/16/2013
