You Can’t Please Everyone – Revolver

One star Amazon reviews of classic movies, music and literature. Today we take a look at Revolver:

What can you say about The Beatles? The best thing I can think of is that they came from Liverpool. But given that noone of them even cared about football, never mind Everton, I won’t even say that’s a good thing. The Beatles is in my opinion the worst band in history. OK everyone was totally loaded on crack and drugs in the 60’ies, but surely you’ve all woken up by now??? It’s pathetic! Every single song. Yellow Submarine is an embarrasment to the human race. It’s the kind of song you thought was hillariously bad even in children school. If you like music then don’t even consider buying a Beatles record.

This is certainly one of the poorest albums ever made. No track can be considered outstanding. The musical prowess of the Beatles, never strong at the best of times,(witness the abysmal guitar and drum “solo’s” on “The End”, is laid painfully bare on this album. Without the energy of their early songs, these tracks hang by the slimmest of melodies and the weakest musical hooks.

Revolver is the Beatles’ weakest album, worse than Yellow Submarine.It displays poor production by George Martin and superficial songwriting, although George’s contributions are far better than John’s. Ringo’s influence is felt strongly on this album. Revolver does the Beatles’ reputation irreparable damage, and it was also their least influential work. A candidate for the worst album of all time by any artist.

I won’t even mention taxman, as an earlier reviewer put it, hearing multi-millionaires complaining about their tax bills is appalling.

Thankfully I am no longer blind and can see this album for what it really is, regardless of how many critics tell you it is great, use your own ears and determine the truth.

One star.

There is flat out one good song on this album – “Taxman”. It is one of the worst albums ever recorded by a decent band.

I love Old school Music, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, The rolling Stones and The beatles are some of my Favorite artists But what’s up with the Hype? This album is so outdated and poorly produced that it’s a sham to give it more than one star. Any one who thinks this is the MOST groundbraking “Album EVER” Doesnt know anything about music, must be sleeping or living in the past. I know good music when I hear it But this is truly one of the worst albums I’ve ever heard.

After Listning to Lame songs like “Love to you” “Tommorow Never Knows” My ears basically started bleeding. A truly weak and dissapoiting effort, Even HELP! is better.

Movie Made by Chimpanzees to be Broadcast on Television

From BBC News:

The world’s first film shot entirely by chimpanzees is to be broadcast by the BBC as part of a natural history documentary.

The apes created the movie using a specially designed chimp-proof camera given to them by primatologists.

The film-making exercise is part of a scientific study into how chimpanzees perceive the world and each other.

It will be screened within the Natural World programme “Chimpcam” shown on BBC Two at 2000GMT on Wednesday 27 January.

Making the movie was the brainchild of primatologist Ms Betsy Herrelko, who is studying for a PhD in primate behaviour at the University of Stirling, UK.

Over 18 months, she introduced video technology to a group of 11 chimpanzees living in a newly built enclosure at Edinburgh Zoo, UK.

The enclosure, which contains three large interlinked outdoor arenas, as well as a series of smaller rooms in which the apes can be studied by researchers, is the largest of its kind in the world.

Happy Blue Monday

From Wikipedia on the most depressing day of the year:

Arnall says the date was calculated by using many factors, including: weather conditions, debt level (the difference between debt accumulated and our ability to pay), time since Christmas, time since failing our new year’s resolutions, low motivational levels and feeling of a need to take action. Writing about the calculation, Goldacre stated: … the fact is that Cliff Arnall’s equations … fail even to make mathematical sense on their own terms.[1]

This date allegedly falls on the Monday of the last full week of January. The date was declared by Arnall to be 24 January in 2005,[4] 23 January in 2006,[5] 22 January in 2007,[6] 21 January in 2008,[7] 19 January in 2009[8] and 25 January in 2010.
