Rubber Soul or Revolver
« on: February 25, 2004, 05:10:55 PM »

Which of these two albums do you prefer? Lots of people have said that they believe they could have been volume one and volume two.

I personally choose Rubber Soul. It was the beginning of new and fresh musical ideas. And it has my all time favourite song, In My Life, on it.

Revolver with no doubts for me! It has so many great songs... Taxman, Eleanor Rigby, I'm only sleeping, love you to, here, there and everywhere, yellow submarine, she said she said, good day sunshine, and your bird can sing, for no one, dr. roberts, i want to tell you, got to get you into my life, tomorrow never knows.

Geez, i guess i named all of the songs from Revolver. They are all so great!

AAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I CANNOT choose!!!!  I am far too wishy-washy...like choosing a favorite friend or child!

Partly too because I've heard these things for nearly 40 years, so my perceptions are all screwed up (you do tire of some songs here and there).

Sorry.  I know I've let you down terribly.  :(

To me Rubber Soul is the beggining of their adulthood. Songs began to evolve from the r'n'b rock'n'roll songs they used to make. There are still some songs which i could include in the "early stuff" category, but there are also some that have a "new" sound.
Revolver is completely "new". That's how i feel when i hear. It's their "metamorphosis" completed to qoute pc31. I wonder how people felt about this album when it got out on the market... there was no song on it that could be compared to an "early stuff" song.

Rubber Soul, definitely, because it was their breakthrough album, artistically speaking. From that album on, they had more independence and could do more things as individuals, like George getting into the sitar.

I went with Revolver. Besides it being my favorite beatles album, I feel that it was a completed version of what Rubber Soul started.

Sorry, I couldn't vote! There is nothing to choose between them I reckon - they are BOTH brilliant (apart from What Goes On and Yellow Submarine - sorry Ringo!)

I think these are two very different albums though - Soul is more acoustic and Revolver is more electric. My two all-time favourite tracks are on these albums too - In My Life and Tomorrow Never Knows.

I'll take them both :)

I can't imagine the one without the other.  Rubber Soul marked the beginning of the Beatles experiments,  and Revolcer was the obvious continuity, culminating with Sgt Peppers.  No when it comes to the album, i just can't say i prefer this than that. They're
all good and they all mark a milestone in their musical path.

And as a second thought, i'd like to add that Rubber was the first one recorded on pot.
See the Lennon 'Rollinig Stone' interview.

Personally, I'd choose the Rubber Sould album since the songs are more upbeat even though the lyrics could be downer than the actual music. I tend to like their songs that have good sense of vibrations, because it rubs off on you. "Run for your life" is defintely my favorite on there. The way John strums his guitar on it is favorites of mine.

as i expected the two albums came very close one to eachother and i will not be surprised if Rubber soul will take the lead.
Cheers!
