Review from Galactic Ramble
Somewhere in the mid-90s, Revolver overtook Sgt. Pepper’s as the Beatles (and, thus all of rock and roll’s) critical favourite. The obvious reason is that when it was finally reissued on CD, American critics listened to it in its full 14-song glory for the first time, and its newness excited them in a way the Beatles hadn’t in nearly 40 years. Critics are fickle, so it’s hard to say weather they’ll feel the same way in 2020, but it’s easy to make an argument that this is their finest LP. The stunning psychedelia of ‘She Said She Said’, ‘I’m Only Sleeping’, ‘Love You To’ and especially ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’ is not only groundbreaking, but - unlike a lot of similar music - completely enduring. ‘And Your Bird Can Sing’ is the basis of not only the entire power pop genre, but, with its amazing harmony lead guitars, the model for the best southern rock band (Lynyrd Skynyrd) and the best AOR band (Boston) McCartney’s peak as a lyricist comes with his saddest, most perfect love song, ‘For No One’. George Martin’s production genius takes full force not just on ‘Tomorrow Never Knows’, but with the stunning bass and guitar sounds on the opening ‘Taxman’. Also, if you can find enough inner child to like ‘Yellow Submarine’, this is the Beatles album where it’s hard to find any one weak track. As if to prove how inspired the Beatles were at this point in time, on the very same day, they also released what may well be their finest single; ‘Paperback Writer’ / ‘Rain’.
