Maybe their magnum opus wasn't an album but a single: Strawberry Fields Forever b/w Penny Lane. I consider that single to be their absolute peak.

What does that mean?

Quote
from : Notes on "Eleanor Rigby"
George Martin credits the influence upon him of Bernard Hermann's score for the film, "Fahrenheit 451", though I also detect an affinity here for the same composer's infamous "Psycho" overture. Against a "warp" of mechanical and strident chords (the effect of which is heightened by their being played in short, choppy down-bows 'near the frog' of the bow, the non-vibrato fingering, and the close miking) is woven a continuously varied and syncopated series of melodic counter-figures in either the cello or violin; trace it, section by section, yerself! And if you do, notice the exquisite "softening" effect created by the sometimes retreat into eight notes in the warp, instead of the very stark quarter notes.
