Thanks man! That's nice to hear.

I think one of the reasons why The Beatles are so consistently voted one of the greatest bands of all times is the simple fact that it's extremely hard to find a "bad" song by them. Some of them are simply less great than others, or at least, that's how I see it! I found it interesting that you referenced a similarity between elements of this album and Primus - it is not a connection I had made previously, and will be listening out for it the next time I play it.
I've actually also reviewed Revolver as well, but it probably got lost in all the discussion. For anyone reading this, I've created a little table of contents with a link to each review in the OP of this thread.

Anyway, this is the Primus song I was referring to, which is the intro track to The Brown Album (a title obviously inspired by the Beatles as well). It doesn't really sound like the song "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" but it has sort of a similar vibe to me:

I think I kind of view it as an extension of the original so I like it. I guess if I had to choose between the two, I'd pick the original though.
