This and Revolver are tied for my favorite Beatles album. A magnificent album and like MisterJunior said, the bass playing on here is great. Every song on here is great and it has some of the best lyrics they wrote. "Drive My Car" and "What Goes On" are catchy as hell, "Michelle" is simply perfection and "In My Life" is one of the prettiest songs they every did, and it's one of my favorite Beatles songs too.

Strong candidate to most influential album in the history of music. By far The Beatles' most groundbreaking one, and that's something. I'm not saying it's the first nor the best, but no other major release was half as instrumental in adding colour to Western popular music. Nothing was ever the same afterwards. One could say the 60's start here.
