In December of 1965 two key moments in the history of popular music happened: The release of Rubber Soul and Brian Wilson getting his hands on it.
And after that, let's just say everything was about to change as the day he heard it he started work on a new album. And what was to come is a once in a generation piece of art.

John Lennon loses the plot.
The album opens on Woman is the n…woman is th-...oh no.
So ugh this is the album in which John comes out as a certified gamer. This is the album in which John’s politics go a bit too far and what we get is a bunch of well intentioned but painfully misguided songs.
