yes... the beatles were excellent..

however i think its a travesty that michael jackson's thriller is ranked so low...

tbh its a masterpiece AND had hits across the board... its probably a case of MJ backlash frm all the bruhaha @ the moment...

beatles would still be my no.1 but jackson's thriller is my no.2

eagles probably deserve a higher spot as well..

personally i dont think they should include greatest hits albums on that list... an entire album is designed for the purpose of being an album. A greatest hits to me is just a compilation... i think theres an big difference.

In the newer issue with Howard Dean on the cover, there is a letter in the mail section making this very point. RS actually responded and stated why they decided to include certain "Greatest Hits" records. I don't own the issue myself, or I'd type out the response they gave. After reading it though, I did think that RS had a legitimate reason for the inclusion of those records. I'll look on the RS website and see if I can find the response.

Yes the Beatles were that good. Except it should be Abbey Road at #1, that is by far the greatest single album ever made. If you have arguments against that, they are flawed :D

yes

even more then anyone could describe, but I'll give it a go.

listening to the Beatles music today is like listening to soft rock...back then, it was revolutionary, and cutting edge

technologically, they were even more meticulous then classical recording...put abbey road or let it be on with headphones, and you would not believe the expertise in production

go further then that, try to find an original vinyl album, and do the same before anything was remastered for digital reproduction...compare the Beatles to anything else on plastic...as if the Beatles producers knew things no one else discovered until a generation later

even today, put "blue jay way" or "I am the walrus" on wearing headphones...I believe if these were released today, hey would turn heads for ingenuity


whenever An album came out, the direction of music as a whole clanged direction according to the Beatles vision


and socially, the Beatles made the young pay attending to what was happening around the world...the public as a whole was so uninformed, never questioning or challenging, any of the status quo.


I can't say the Beatles had sole responsibility for making America aware, but they had not a small hand in it

they were a culture

if not for the Beatles, "the whole" flower power" movement, could possible never have happened...they challenged us to think and wonder.

yes

more amazing then can be told

I also agree, abbey road BTW

hey, give that "blue jaw way" and "I am the walrus" a listen with headphones

I'm glad to see Nirvana made it into the top 20 (#17) but very sad to see Pearl Jam only got #207. They deserve much higher on that list IMHO.

btw... the Beatles were from liverpool so naturally they were exceptional (/me quietly dons his Reds shirt and sings "you'll never walk alone" in typical scouse accent)

:cool:

I feel the same way... the way it flows from beginning to end is quite amazing... but why do most lists put sgt. peppers in the top spot?

^^ cos it was extremely ground breaking at the time (even though I think Pink Floyd's Piper at the Gates Of Dawn was more so and released earlier).
