i used to have a high regard for Revolver - it seems to have diminished over the years, as the songwriting is not that good, IMHO

i still, however, think Here, There and Everywhere to be the best Paul Beatles song

In comparison I probably prefer For No One from that album. Here, There and Everywhere is a nice song of course, though the way it is done sounds a bit syrupy for me now.

The musical talent of John Lennon was ridiculous. Shame he was shot, we could of gotten so much more out of him. A true musical genius.

Definitely one of their better albums. One I listen to a lot actually, though I prefer Sgt Pepper over this one.

You say that as if it's unusual!!!!!



Polythene Pam-One of the few times I actually notice Johnís accent. ]
He deliberatley sang PP emphasising a strong scouse accent so you were meant to notice it.

Thanks for you review!

I think some people here find their joy in bashing legendary music albums and saying they prefer lesser known stuff.

1) This album deserves better than 8/10 (as long as 5/10 means an average album).
2) The End is nowhere close to being the best track on this album.
