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 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.

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

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

Edit: Okay I gave it another listen and WOAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Even if a couple of tracks don't fare as well as the rest of the album, the high points on this album are so ... read more

Revolver is my favorite Beatles album by far. The first time I listened to this album, it blew me away. The high points on this album are legitimately perfect, and the low points on this album don't go below a 95/100. This album is a far cry from their first albums. For an album from the mid 60's, the production on here is unbelievably intricate and phenomenal. It's insane how much this album holds up. Revolver also contains some Beatles classics like Taxman, Eleanor Rigby and Yellow ... read more
