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.

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 Telegraph

Their first psychedelic masterpiece, Revolver represents the Beatles at their most creative and cohesive, still a tight rocking unit firing on all cylinders but with a surging freedom of self-expression.

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

While "Sgt. Pepper's" and "Abbey Road" stick with me the closest, "Revolver" still comes extremely close to those classics. The production is mind-blowing! Especially compared to The Beatles' earlier records, this feels pretty experimental even for its day! A bunch of essential Beatles classics here too, from the catchy bassline of "Taxman" to the kindergarten classroom-like melody of "Yellow Submarine" (though that isn't one of my favorites). ... read more

"Revolver" is definitely one of the better Beatles albums so far, but it's not going to be a personal favorite any time soon. It has some of their most forgettable work up to this point, but it has some of their best as well.

Although one of the most popular, "Elanor Rigby" doesn't click much with me personally. My main gripe (that isn't THAT painful in the grand scheme of things); is Paul's vocals switching between just being the right channel, & then to being in both ... read more

Wow.

As of right now Revolver is my favourite Beatles album. This is by far the most consistent in the Beatles catalogue for me. I love a lot of the feel good atmosphere coming from the instrumentals and it still maintains the experimental edge that the Beatles brought to a lot of their albums. I love a lot of the songwriting on here too especially on the tracks Eleanor Rigby and She Said She Said. The band incorporated various types of instrumentation much like what they did on the previous ... read more
