I love John. I don't like the Beatles.

I agree, but he had the most outstanding talent.

This is my favorite Beatles album. 10/10
The cover is the most famous photo ever.

They are underrated. Not only youngsters listening to crap music of the last 30 years have no clue, they're really objectively underrated. Considered the greatest, but not by enough of a margin. They were really from another universe. Even the Stones don't hold a candle. Or elvis or whoever.

John formed them, and he broke them up. It's his fault, and thank God for it. Just if there weren't for that Paul person...take A day in the life. John's part is undescribable, and Paul's annoys me, as usual.

Magical Mystery Tour is their most underrated album, I really like it.
Pepper is a good pointer towards how they should be regarded.

MMT is the most underrated after Let it be.

4. Rubber Soul
5. Revolver
6. Abbey Road (love /hate relationship)
7. The White album. Unfortunately not my favorite like John's. I must be missing something. Maybe it's cause he concentrated on lyrics.
8. Help!
9. The Beatles for sale
10. With the Beatles
11. A hard day's night
12. Please please me

So, I've been listening to the Beatles lately, and it seems to me Abbey road is by far the best thing they've ever done.

But what I wanted to know is, what's up with the heaps of praise for The White Album? In its 1.5h, I can find maybe 2 songs which stand out (Obla-di and While my guitar gently weeps) but even those are not close to the top of their songwriting. Why is this album considered one of the best of the era? Is it about the lyrics?

I think it's the diversity. People (I'm thinking casual listeners mainly) remember their standout tracks displaced from the bloated album and assume it's the best album.

I would've cut it down to:

Helter Skelter
Back in the U.S.S.R
Revolution 1
Happiness Is a Warm Gun
Birthday
Rocky Raccoon
Martha My Dear
Dear Prudence
Julia
While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Start off heavy then mellow out. Like a fat baby.

I mean I still don't get it because none of those tracks are outstanding, and they had plenty of outstanding tracks, on other albums or singles. Which is how I guess I would judge albums normally.

And what do we think about the Naked version of Let it be? Just gave it a listen, seems to be a bit of an improvement on the original, more mellow and better sequenced, to my untrained, not-a-big-fan ears. Hmm?

Idk I like both versions a lot, Get Back being my favorite Beatles track in general, but I can't really pick b/w Let it Be and Naked

I'll check that dictionary, but in the meantime I'm impressed - as is everyone else in the world - by your eloquence, obvious accomplishments and success, and the evidence of your blazingly high intelligence.

Nah, I only chose great tracks. Music taste generally being variable probably explains why people have varying opinions on the album.

All outstanding Beatles tracks in my books. Let It Be Naked is nice as a novelty and an attempt to capture the original aesthetic of the album, but I've grown up with the original Spector-laden album and I prefer it that way.

this was a wrong opinion, Paul has great solo stuff too

I prefer earlier Paul solo stuff over any other Beatles solo material that doesn't involve Yoko.
