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.

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

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.

There's a case to be made that the Beatles went on to do Sgt. Pepper's because there was nowhere else to go but too far. With Revolver, they had mapped out the pop universe so perfectly that all they could do next was tear it up and start again.

This record is a mind-blowing ride, showing off how the lads from Liverpool could mix different sounds and still sound like no one else. It's packed with tunes that go from rocking hard to chilling out, proving these guys were way ahead of their time.
