The lighter pop songs provide variety and I like that. Variety can help me enjoy an album more.

I usually don't like too much 'lightness'

Not a big Beatles fan but this album is one I do like. I do like some songs from this album. I like Come Together and Something. They are great songs

PROMISED MYSELF THAT I WOULD LEARN THE GUITAR PARTS TO THIS TRACK YEARS AGO. I STILL HAVENT

I like the production on Abbey Road, it all builds up to that ending which is more convincing than the end of Sgt Pepper for me (the crescendo and long chord I find a bit over the top).

I like Revolver the most, it is really just a top notch album overall.. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band comes second and then Abbey Road third.

"Rubber Soul" is my fave, followed by Sgt. Pepper's then White Album

The last track in particular (and maybe the Ringo one) lets Rubber Soul down a bit for me. Some of the Revolver tracks may not have lasted so well for me since I first heard it in the early-mid 90s.
