Wild Honey pie is fucking weird as shit were as Cry Baby Cry is same old same old.

Why did you disgrace revolution 9 the greatest mindfuck by the most popular band in the world at the bottom.

I don't know how you guys did this. I don't think I have the patience to rank the songs on Revolver (my personal favorite Beatles album), much less The White Album. I can say "Yer Blues" is probably my favorite track from that album, though.

Yes. I feel comfortable in agreeing with that. The only track from that album that I really care about is "A Day in the Life."

And maybe "With a Little Help from My Friends."

Absolutely not. It's my eighth favorite album of all time, and I believe that it deserves its status as most important album ever made. Revolver is my favorite, but Sgt. Pepper is an experience that never gets old for me.

I'll rank the songs on it real quick:

1.) A Day in the Life (10)
2.) She's Leaving Home (9.5)
3.) Within You Without You (9.5)
4.) Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds (9.5)
5.) Lovely Rita (9)
6.) Fixing a Hole (9)
7.) Good Morning Good Morning (8.5)
8.) Getting Better (8.5)
9.) With a Little Help from My Friends (8.5)
10.) Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (8)
11.) When I'm Sixty-Four (7.5)
12.) Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite! (7)
13.) Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise) (7)

I actually think that the White Album might be their most overrated.

Also, the it is perhaps the most discussable.

There are hundreds of albums more important than Sgt Peppers solely in rock. VU and Nico for example. I would place alot of folk, blues and jazz recordings as more important albums overall.

Sgt. Pepper laid the groundwork for rock to be a respected art form. And not just that, but albums in general. When the Beatles started out as a band, albums were collections of singles, filler, and covers, that were sort of dishonest in the sense that they kind of attempted to fool the public into buying what looked to be good music that they'd never heard before. This is why almost every album by a well-known artist back then included a label on the front of their albums that read, "Including the singles, (insert single here)". Even the Beatles did that in the beginning, with Please Please Me, and I think a few of their US albums. But by the time they reached Sgt. Pepper, they put blood, sweat, and tears into the production of every song, truly creating an album.

Every song on Sgt. Pepper is unique from not only the other songs on the album, but in popular music. Sgt. Pepper is sprawling with ideas, many of which had never been heard in rock, and the execution is immeasurable. The production techniques used during the album's creation are still mimicked today, even with modern technology as an advantage that the Beatles didn't have. Sgt. Pepper was one of the first albums in rock that you could say was truly ahead of its time.

As influential as VU and Nico was, I'd say that Sgt. Pepper did more for music by a longshot. At a time when many bands were trying to copy the Beatles and imitate them, the band finally made the album that nobody could replicate. Sure, maybe you don't like many of the songs on it, but to deny the magnitude of its impact on music is to be ignorant.

By the way, I just listened to Spiderland. And damn, it's great.

I would argue Pet Sounds was the first rock album without any filler. I know how the pop music of the day worked but I feel the shift was much more gradual than people like to say and even after the beatles they still pulled this shit (carpenters anyone?)

Pet Sounds and the beatles albums did more for modern production than they did for music in general. I will freely admit that its probably the most influential album on modern production out there. I dont think that makes it the most important musically.

Also yeah Spiderland is awesome. Whats you favorite Track?

Oh, I never said that Sgt. Pepper was the first album to not have filler. In fact, that would probably go to Highway 61, or my second favorite of all time, as you've mentioned, Pet Sounds. But Sgt. Pepper had reach, and was the first album that really got people thinking about how great albums could be. It takes a great album to do that. Not just a few hit songs. As a fan of albums, I feel that it is only fair to tip my cap to Sgt. Pepper every once in a while.

My favorite track? I just listened to the album, for God's sake. But alright, either Good Morning Captain, or perhaps Nosferatu Man.

Honestly i dont think any of the Dylan albums had any filler. The 60s folk scene regarded there craft much more highly than the rock musicians so they tended to put out much more solid and cohesive albums(generally cause alot of the Greenwhich folk artists were protesters rather than simply artists in it for the paycheck)

I would say Beatles did bring it to the Rock albums though but it was a gradual thing.

My favorite track on spiderland in Don, Aman. Its the saddest song on what is possibly the saddest album ever.
