Better than it was for sure. I've definitely been listening to Sgt. Pepper, Revolver and Abbey Road just for enjoyment since reviewing them, especially Sgt. Pepper.

Glad to see that you have a good appreciation for Revolver and Abbey Road, two of my all time favorite Beatles records.
Thanks man. I had to take a little break here because I listened to essentially nothing but the Beatles for two weeks or so, but I've been working on my White Album review and plan to have it up in the near future.

Definitely looking forward to that review. That's one of my top 3 Beatles albums. Can't wait to see what you think.

I also can't wait to read what you have to say about the White Album (or The Beatles as it's actually called). Personally, I don't think it's a bad album but I do have some mixed feelings about some songs that are on there.

Isn't it funny that no one ever refers to it as The Beatles—s/t?

I have never referred to it as The Beatles, but was forced to do so in the essay I wrote for my post-1945 pop music class. It was weird.

I really like how the beatles weren't indulgent with their music. Maybe it's because they were short "pop" songs, but regardless of what you wan to call it their song were very tight, well written and executed. Every little keyboard or guitar solo was well calculated, not a note that didn't count. Some musicians get so indulgent and play so many notes, you really could go without some of those notes that become part of the big mush of non-melodic pieces of music. The beatles made every note count, kinda like BB king.

I don't envy you the task of reviewing the White Album (I mean The Beatles ), Janszoon. Not only is it a double album, but it's also their most polarizing record. I'm really looking forward to your review, though, and any write-ups to follow. What's great about your reviews is that they're coming from someone with a relatively fresh perspective on The Beatles - and that makes them more interesting.

Whatever your assessment of The Beatles, thanks for taking a listen.

I haven't forgotten! I just got a little burnt out on the Beatles and have found the white album especially difficult to write a review of. With this little nudge, though, I may get it done sooner rather than later.
