Nice list. Struggling because it seems like beatles for sale should be higher and I think white album seems to need a top 5 spot. So hard but your list is good.

1 - Rubber Soul (barely)
1.001 - Revolver
1.002 - Sgt Pepper
...
..
4-12 - All others except Beatles For Sale are roughly the same, with maybe the late albums and Help! a bit above the early ones, and Hard Day's Night the best of the early ones.
..
...
13 - Beatles For Sale

I don't rank them - I wouldn't know how. If I had to rank them I think it would be hard to do, because they are so different. The music changed so much throughout the 60s and their own music along with it that comparing the later and earlier material is almost like a apples to orange comparison. Each album reflects the music happening at the time. Please Please Me, and Meet the Beatles are just as strong an album as their later stuff.

If I had to rank them, it'd be
1. Magical Mystery Tour
2. Revolver
3. Sgt. Pepper's
4. Abbey Road
5. The White Album
6. Rubber Soul
7. A Hard Day's Night
8. Help!
9. Let It Be
10. With the Beatles
11. Please Please Me
12. Beatles for Sale

I've not actually listened to Yellow Submarine so I won't rank it.

Hm...I made a couple rash choices for this list. I mean, including Past Masters, and putting Beatles For Sale ahead of The White Album!?! Sgt. Pepper would go a bit higher, but not much, probably just ahead of Magical Mystery Tour. And Revolver could knock Abbey Road off the top spot. A lot of the descriptions are also pretty stupid. I may have to remake this list.

Magical mystery at #1. I commend you on a bold choice. Some fantastic music on there. Might be #1 just for "I am the Walrus."

This is hard, but:

1.Revolver
2. White Album
3. Hard Days Night
4)Rubber Soul
5)Pepper
6)MMT
7) Abbey Road
8) Let It Be
9)Please Please Me
10) Help
11)With The Beatles
12) Beatles For Sale

BUT....they are all great.

And yes, I may overrate Hard Day's Night, but it was the first record I bought, and it's really an innocent pop masterpiece. And it was the one that got me into music at the first place... So there.
