EDITORS’ NOTES

Beneath the white-on-white cover art, "The White Album" is an eclectic, 30-track album of largely stripped-down material, originally spread across two vinyl records. The album was a stark contrast to Sgt. Pepper in every aspect—from the cover art to the sounds within. The sheer breadth of material as well as the mixture of the loud and the soft is part of what makes "The White Album" so surprising. The heavy sounds of "Helter Skelter" and "Yer Blues" juxtapose with the gentle beauty of "Long, Long, Long" and "Julia." The cacophony of "Revolution 9" is followed by the orchestral lullaby of "Good Night." The album's extended length gave the band room in which they could explore all of their musical influences and multiple forms of popular music, while creating revolutionary sounds in the studio.

A grave abuse of power

This 1 star review is for 1. The fact that none of the produced phisical material came with download cards. 2. The digital authorization via apple is a joke, seeing as how they are the biggest tech company in the world, handeling one of the biggest band's greatest albums, there shouldn’t be this many errors. 3. In the first 15 seconds of Dear Prudence, the digital audio file jumps all over the album for 3 seconds, but the disc remains fine. 4. Apple has been trusted with one of the gems of humanity and they've done their absolute best to not only have no regard for their contractual obligation but to also dismiss the enormous archival responsibilities that have been laid upon them. If you can't handle audio files, how can you handle an entire empire. Maybe hire an actual audio engineer instead of Trent Reznor?
