EDITORS’ NOTES

Revolver is The Beatles at their peak of creativity. Surprising shifts in mood prevail on this album —ranging from the bright positivity of "Good Day Sunshine" to the paranoia of "She Said She Said." The balance of pure harmony ("Here, There and Everywhere") with jangling electric guitar ("And Your Bird Can Sing"), orchestral character portraits ("Eleanor Rigby") and brassy soul ("Got to Get You Into My Life") is seamless. Revolver is also one of the first psychedelic albums—with backwards guitar, sitar, sound effects, and complex lyrics throughout—culminating in the mystical finale of "Tomorrow Never Knows." Filled with revolutionary studio advances and perfect song craft, the end result is a towering artistic achievement.

Greatest of all time?

Is it possible to call any album the greatest of all time? When it comes to the rock and roll era, this must be it. It's the Beatles at their creative peak, and each and every song stands up as brilliant both individually and, more importantly, as a collective whole.

A case can be made that every Beatles album is 4 or 5 star worthy. But that means there's a whole new rating system needed for "Revolver". Not just the Beatles greatest album, but perhaps the defining release in the history of rock music.
