CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

Even after Sgt. Pepper, Revolver stands as the ultimate modern pop album and it's still as emulated as it was upon its original release.

Pitchfork

As they devoted more time to the studio, the Beatles' individual voices and confidence continued to grow, resulting in the sonic landmark Revolver.

Paste

With Revolver, The Beatles completed their transformation from the mop tops of three years earlier into bold, groundbreaking experimental rockers.

Revolver is forever to be remembered as one of the first Psychedelic albums that truly defined the genre. This is an album that must be heard, and in its versatility, there is something for every Beatle fan, regardless of what era in their music you're most fond of.

Rolling Stone

These days, Revolver has earned its reputation as the best albums the Beatles ever made, which means the best album by anybody.

The first part of this album goddamn blew my mind. Like this was SO MUCH MORE trippy than I expected going into this. It's such a weird feeling. I could've easily given this a 10/10 but admittedly a few tracks felt a bit meh compared to the rest of the album. And that last track? Goddamn what on earth was that

best tracks: Eleanor Rigby, I'm Only Sleeping, She Said She Said, I Want To Tell You, Tomorrow Never Knows

least favourites: Good Day Sunshine or Yellow Submarine (I'm sorry)

Woah... this is trippy...

For real, though. This is something I wouldn't have guessed that The Beatles made. Such a different, and weird album coming from the band. Bravo. It gets boring at some point, but overall, a great album.

Though the album gets old for a while, and some songs feel repetitive, much like Love You To, and etc, this is still a great album. I just get distracted by some songs, and such.

Also, my God, the last track scares the shit outta me 'til this day. I love ... read more
