Why? Whats so damn wrong with people prefering that album? It really shows the flexibility of John, Paul and Georges songwriting talents. And it's my 4th favorite Beatles album after Sgt Peppers, Abbey Road and Revolver.

Because it's the one album where the Beatles stop being The Beatles and try to be everything else, everything they were not. If one loves the Beatles for the Beatles, then they ought to love Sgt Peppers, Abbey Road and Revolver more than the self-titled. Aside from that, the album is a disjointed incoherent mess on which the songwriters are CLEARLY not on the same page as each other - it might as well for much of it be a merged compilation of solo EPs. So why a Beatles fan would prefer it to the albums where The Beatles were actually on the same page is beyond me and I think it's a pity that in many circles The White Album has come to be seen as the band's masterwork.

Other than that, it's an enjoyable record and also my 4th favourite after the other three. I could tie it with Rubber Soul too, I reckon.

That makes no sense. Sgt Peppers and Abbey Road sound absolutely nothing like The Beatles when they first got popular. Hell, the best Beatles albums are the ones that sound the least like The Beatles.

And its retarded to hate on a album just because its a great departure in style. By that logic you should consider David Bowie's Low to be one of the worst albums ever made.

The White Album has a few lousy filler tracks like Wild Honey Pie, Piggies, Don't Let Me Down and Revolution 9. But most of the tracks are great, and Dear Prudence, Happiness is a Warm Gun, Helter Skelter, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, Julia, Blackbird, Glass Onion and Sexy Sadie are among the very best Beatles songs.

And whats wrong with that? Why can't an album just be judged by the quality of the songs?

You make no sense. All of the best Beatles albums are the ones that consists of songs that were written solely by one person. As opposed to their earlier stuff where Lennon and McCartney were tight collaberators and Harrison had very little to say. The Beatles were at their BEST when each member started having more control over his own vision.

Hey! I love Piggies, it's a great song. Don't Let Me Down was not on the White Album.

DAMMIT.

I meant Don't Pass My By.

Don't Let Me Down was a wonderful song, sorry for the confusion.
