    Um, no. Yeah, this album is considering the greatest ever by many sources. It's not for me to say whether it is or isn't and I'm sure no one else gives a shit, but it's still bloody amazing. The confidence with which these songs are knocked out is very impressive.

    don't understand why people say this is their greatest album, it has some good songs but the rest are just ok songs, there are much better albums

    Not the greatest album ever. Not even the best Beatles album. Revolver and Rubber Soul are both better. Don't understand the hype with this album. And I'm a bigger psychedelic rock fan than I am folk rock. Rubber Soul and Revolver are much better listens.

    It's incredible how, in under 40 minutes, The Beatles were able to mix so much musical genres and different decades than much of the rock bands these days tries to do in albums with 60-70 minutes.

    Every single song is just perfect. It's rare of me to love every track from a single album.

    I've spent the last few weeks reading through The Beatles Complete recording session ledgers while listening to the Anthology Albums. Absolutely fascinating how intuitively creative they were. And how quickly they recorded some of their most outstanding songs. On Sgt. Pepper, no sooner had they completed the album then they were on to the 'All You Need Is Love' live performance followed directly into the 'Strawberry Fields Forever' & 'Penny Lane' double A single. And then off to shoot the movie and release the Magical Mystery Tour Album. It's almost as if Sgt. Pepper was just another album of no particular significance to The Beatles. The volume and quality of their creative output was just spectacular. Not saying anything new here ... just sharing my sense of awe!
