Mark Lewisohn summarised the public reaction upon its release: "... most listeners loathing it outright, the dedicated fans trying to understand it."

That pretty much sums up my own reaction. I hated it the first time I heard it, tried to understand it because it was a Beatles track, failed to understand it, and now pretty much always skip it.

Thanks, Dave! We lived in land-locked Nevada for several years, so my kids aren't too used to boats, but they are learning to like them fast! He had a good time.

Pure utter sh*t.

Agree but we all know their sh*t doesn't smell.

I went through a period with friends long time ago that it was listened to at the end of an evenings worth of partying.  I don't think I've listened to it in 25 years.

I accepted it upon its release and regarded it as fairly well done sonic expressionism. Or something. Anyway, I could never say I hated it.

In fact, I felt it was pretty cool to go so outside the box, so to speak. That, certainly, could only have been done on a double album.

I think I mention this before somewhere on the boards, but I have a John Cage recording that really reminds me of '9'. Startlingly so.

I have no use for it and haven't since 1968.  Fans of Stockhausen seem to like it.  I hit skip when playing the White Album on CD or on my PC, but not on vinyl (but sometimes I hit the mute button).

To each their own.  There was a thread about it over at the Hoffman forums several months ago that got deleted because it got pretty nasty.  Some posters said some elitist nonsense about if you don't like Number 9, then the rest of your record collection must suck.  Then it just got worse so the mods deleted it.

'Revolution No. 9' almost defines what the 60s were all about, and it seems incredible, especially from this distance, that the biggest group of the era (and every other era.....by miles) could put out such a track on one of their mainstream records, one that was No. 1 for two months, and not as an off-shoot project.

That, categorically, could not be done today, or indeed in any era since the 60s. 

The merging of such madness and pop music is what compels me to virtually reside entirely in the 50s and 60s and disregard the eras afterwards as lesser in terms of experimentation, importance and, let's not forget, fun.

'Revolution No. 9' would not get in my Beatles Top 100, but without it the group and the 60s itself would be just like the decades that followed it, i.e. forgettable/not all that.
