What you say below is true. But I must say that I think that Sgt. Pepper is the most overrated record
ever made. "With a Little Help From My Friends" is the only good song on the record. Revolver and
Rubber Soul were much better records.
In fact, Revolver is the only Beatles record I would put in the same class as the Stones records from
Beggars through Exile. I would put Sgt. Pepper on approximately the same quality level as Goats
Head Soup. Both were records made just after the bands had peaked. Actually I'd give GHS the
edge because it's less pretentious.
I found myself agreeing with most of your thoughts lately until this curveball. You don't like A Day in the Life? My theory is some of the music doesn't hold up real well; people look at it from a 1998 perspective instead of a 67 persective. I don't listen to it much now, but I like it, HUGELY influential record.
