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 This album is so outdated and poorly produced that it’s a sham to give it more than one star.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.

  1. That’s funny.
    In the 80s’ one of my prized possessions was a cassette tape of “Revolver” I picked up in Europe. At the time, the cassettes and lps of the album in The States didn’t have all the songs. (I think the record company released each album a few songs short so they could make an extra album from the extra music).

  6. A lousy review because the music is “outdated”? I wonder what he/she thinks of Beethoven. I best he/she is a Creed fan.

  7. Jim Buck,

    It’s the Beatle album with: the wittiest title; and the coolest cover; and a couple of songs have stood the test of time. On the whole, it’s no big deal though; unlike the mono Sgt Pepper–which is still double ++ fab!

  8. Axton,

    Revolver is probably their third best album, after Sgt. Pepper’s and Abbey Road, but it is completely amazing in it’s own right. And Your Bird Can Sing is one of my favorite songs ever. The vocal harmonies get me every time.
