    I won't argue this is a solid Beatles album, but... it's not one of my favourites? Maybe because it's two sides, but the boys just don't seem to be coalescing like they used to. Instead, it gives John and Paul a lot of room to develop into their own artists and not have to rely so much on the ideas of the other (even though all songs are still credited to L&M). That being said, I have lots of favourites on here: Glass Onion, Guitar Gently Weeps, Happiness is a Warm Gun, Yer Blues (!!), and sure, Helter Skelter. A lot of what Paul is doing here is simply annoying. But Lennon does himself in with Revolution 9, which might have sounded very progressive for 1968 if it wasn't for the fact that modernist composers were doing things like this, and more interestingly so, for about 30 years prior. Maybe you had to be there to want to give that particular track repeat listens. Maybe headphones and pot act as a digestif. Anyway, the usual episodes of brilliance from the Four Lads. But it's an exhausting album to get through at times. And it always ends up feeling fractured.

    This version seems to be rather soft pressing. It's warm and balanced, but not very dynamic. Still works, though.
