Read about it here:
The Beatles will be the first band to have multiple albums appear on this blog, but for good reason… they are the GREATEST BAND OF ALL TIME!!!
Now that that’s out of the way, let me just say that this is one of the greatest albums ever made. Some of the studio techniques and sounds that appear on this album paved the way for a lot of musicians and producers, and made albums like “Sgt. Pepper’s” (which was already on this blog) possible. There is so much cool stuff happening on this album, I don’t even know where to start! Backwards guitars, horn (!) and string arrangements, sitar, great lyrics, psychedelia, and references to Tibetan beliefs, British politicians and drugs… and that doesn’t even begin to cover everything that is going on on here!
This album is consistently referred to as their finest work in the studio, and if you take the time to learn a little bit about the history behind the album before giving it a listen, you will be thoroughly rewarded.
