Top 5 Beatles Albums

This type of list has been done a million times, and there's a reason why. You can't label the Beatles (as a whole) as any Genre, hence why i'm showing you the best of the best. Although I can't help but stress the fact that i Love the Beatles and may be (ever so slightly) bias towards them.

5- Abbey Road - Released 1969

Ah, yes the most iconic album cover of all time. The "greatest" Beatles album.  So why is at number 5? Well, why don't you the educated reader of this post look at is track listing. If you're a casual Beatles fan you may recognise songs like "Something", "Octopus's Garden", "Here Comes The Sun or "Come Together" but how many of the other songs can you identify with based just on the title? not many i'll bet. I can just about remember half the songs by reading their title the other half... well don't ask me!

4- Rubber Soul - Released 1965

Now this is a album. This is THE album which started the Beatles Legacy, each song on there was carefully created and each song should be recognisable to most Beatles fan. This album set the pace for the Beatles and completely opened the rock world up to everything that is brilliant about rock. Either the album cover tells you everything is going to be different from now on, from the acidic way the Beatles are looking down at you to their pun of "rubber Soul" the music world had never seen anything like this again, and it would never be the same. Which in my opinion isn't a bad thing 

3- The Beatles (The White Album) - Released 1968

I can hear you people screaming now "WHAT THE WHITE ALBUM OVER ABBEY ROAD", yeah thats right i've dared to say that the white album is one of the Beatles true gems you have everything on it. Guitar anthems "While My Guitar Gently Weeps", Soft ballads "Blackbird", pop "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da", Rocking tunes "Back In The USSR", Early hard rock "Helter Skelter" and avant Garde "Revolution 9", there's something for anyone.

2- Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band - Released 1967

Doth One Need to explain the one of the greatest albums ever heard? If thou answers "yes" i will direct the reader to dunk their head inside their toilette bowl, Whereas if you have replied in the negative you may proceed.

1- Revolver - Released 1966

The cover, the songs, the psychedelic undertone. This is the perfect album my personal 3rd Favourtie Album. Beaten by (if you're wondering) "All things Must Pass" by the Beatles' own George and "Forever Changes" by Love.
