Let me make this entirely clear, this album is exceptional and quite easily ranks in the top 5 albums of all time. I am therefore not writing a review on the album, as there is probably little to be said that hasn’t already been covered. Owning the 1988 and remastered cd’s along with the 2012 vinyl release, I decided to purchase the mono album to complete my collection. Having heard so many good things regarding the quality of this release, from the packing, the vinyl itself and the opportunity to listen to the mono mix the Beatles intended you to hear, I was very excited. I was therefore appalled to receive not only one copy of the aforementioned, but also a replacement that was riddled with both hairline scratches and scuffs over the entire surface area on both sides of the record. Not only was this a visual negative, because sonically they are also compromised with loud surface noise and crackles and pops that give the impression you are listening to a record over an open fire! Having returned the first copy for an exchange, I am contemplating just getting a refund on the second copy as I cannot be bothered going through the exchange/refund process for a third time. Please be wary when thinking of buying this album in mono as it would appear that a bad batch has made its way to Amazons Warehouse....
I first bought this album in 1981 on vinyl, but due to shortage of room a later date, my Beatles albums had to go. However, living in a bungalow where there's plenty of storage space, I decided last year to buy their original albums on CD and I don't regret my decision one bit.
At the time I had this album my hifi system wasn't the best - just a simple music centre, but with the set-up I've got now, I was just blown away when I heard it as an auto rip (the CD's on is way at the time of writing this) and every track was excellent. It's only fair to comment that I'd forgotten just how good the album is. The stereo was excellent and I've never heard such clarity, but it was when I reached Tomorrow Never Knows that I really got the stereo effects. So many others have gone through the tracks, so I won't step on others' shoes, but stand-outs for me had to be Here, There and Everywhere, For No One, Eleanor Rigby, Good Day Sunshine and Tomorrow Never Knows. This leap forward into a completely new world of music by these lads is so much to their credit when you consider that two years ago, they were writing and singing songs which were of the boy meets girl, girl wrongs boy and boy wrongs girl type. It's an album that no one who wants to launch into their original albums should be complete without and if I've had this experience from the auto rip, I'm really looking forward to hearing the CD.
NOTE : THE VERSION I GOT IS NOT THE PAPER/CARBOARD REMASTERED EDITIION WHICH IS IN THE PRODUCT PHOTO - IT COMES IN A PLASTIC JEWEL CASE AND IS PROBABLY AN OLDER RELEASE. Well, what more can I say about possibly the best album by without doubt the biggest modern music band in history? I have quite a few of The Beatles' albums including 'The White Album,' and 'Sgt. Pepper,' the later more often than not hailed as their very best, I have to say I prefer this one. There is no bad track here, despite 'Dr. Robert' often singled out as filler, it's still an ok song, it's just silver surrounded by gold and platinum! 'Revolver' features some of the Fab Four's most famous songs : 'Eleanor Rigby' and 'Yellow Submarine,' but what really sets this album apart is the number of slightly under the radar or less famous songs which are just as good, if not better than any of the tracks on the '1' / Number One's album collection. 'Taxman,' 'Here, There and Everywhere,' 'And Your Bird Can Sing,' 'Good Day Sunshine,' I could go on, are all stellar songs most bands would pray to have in their neglected back catalogue. Even the sitar, Eastern psychedelic duo of 'Love You To' and closer 'Tomorrow Never Knows' sound perfectly in place in the album. Basically, it's all good.
Many fans believe 'Revolver' to be The Beatles' finest album, and it's easy to understand why, this is a masterpiece. My personal favourite will always be 'Rubber Soul', which was released the previous year, but their seventh LP, issued in 1966, does come a very close second. Very rarely would I describe an album as 'flawless', but here I must make one of those exceptions, this experimental record contains 14 brilliant tracks which still shine very brightly.
With 'Revolver', the Fabs made an impressive LP which deals with all kinds of mixed human emotions, including love, hate, depression, loneliness, laziness, and happiness, and as a result, the songs remain highly relatable. This is an electric mix, which truly reveals the breath of song writing talent that these four men now had, and how they were able to incorporate them in an array of different styles.
Personal favourites of mine include the outstanding ballad 'Here, There and Everywhere', the haunting orchestral brilliance of 'Eleanor Rigby', about the final days leading up to the death of lonely spinster, the bouncy and irresistible 'Good Day, Sunshine', and the lovely little gem 'For No One', all delivered by Paul Mcartney. Other standouts are the melodic 'And Your Bird Can Sing', and 'Tomorrow Never Knows', a magnificent experimental closer and largely considered to be one of the greatest songs of its time. Both of these have Ringo on vocal, as well as the children's sing-along hit 'Yellow Submarine', possibly the best known track on the album, and even this fits in quiet nicely with the rest of the material.
'Revolver' is a timeless psychedelic album, and is as fresh as it is classic. Although The Beatles continued to record great albums after 'Revolver', very rarely did they manage to fully repeat the sheer creativity and melody that is so evident on this one.
All that's left to really say is: Long live John, Paul, George and Ringo!
I have loved The Beatles since I was young, although they had dis-banded when I got into them.
I do like the heavier vinyl, feels like a 78. It's also nice to have a brand new vinyl. I have had every format of The Beatles, starting with vinyl in 1979. I'm rebuilding my collection and looking forward to getting back what I had. THANK YOU
It has been said that ' Revolver' took pop music to another level of expression, and certainly there are some excellent songs to be found here. Along with 'Dr Robert' - which, apart from being a tribute to the doctor who was hired to look after the group has little to commend it - you find ' For No One', which is beautiful, poignant and a near-perfect pop song, and the upbeat, life-enhancing and life-affirming ' Good Day Sunshine', which can only bring cheer to the listener. When you add in possibly the best, most polished, most touching song the Beatles ever wrote - 'Eleanor Rigby' - you begin to see this is a standout CD. As if that were not enough, how about 'Taxman' - George's cry from the wallet against the ridiculous swingeing taxes of that era - with a fantastic guitar solo played by Macca himself, and the lyrical ' Here There And Everywhere', along with Lennon's attempt to lift pop music out of the Boy loses Girl groove and into something deeper and darker with 'I'm Only Sleeping' ? Other tracks such as 'Tomorrow Never Knows' , ' Got To Get You Into My Life', and ' She Said She Said' would grace most albums, and that's without mentioning 'Yellow Submarine' - which I shouldn't really mention when listing the other superior tracks. It's good, it's important, it's the Beatles moving things on. Buy it and enjoy...
I'm going to buck the trend here , the mono CD set was wonderfull but I much prefer the Revolver stereo vinyl re issue to this mono vinyl edition True , the remastered stereo mixes seem odd at times with instruments (e.g. John's scratchy rhythm guitar ) coming at you out of the blue from odd angles and then disappearing. But the overall assault is dynamic - like a boxer's punch flurry. The attraction of the best mono is the steam roller effect , you are completely flattened - which I don't feel here. Unless volume control caution is abandoned (sorry neighbour)
