Rubber Soul, Just Gets Better ?
« on: August 21, 2007, 11:56:59 AM »

" Rubber Soul "  , just seems to get better for me with each passing year ,apart from the White Album ,it's the one Beatles record i play the most .
I never tire of it , i love all the songs and what great songs they are " Drive My Car " straight into " Norwegian Wood " what a brilliant introduction to an album ? and then it just keeps getting better  :)
I love how this album as never losted any of it's freshness , it truely is a timeless masterpiece ,it's full of such bueatiful light and shade from the bouncy  "The Word " to " In My Life "
What a brilliant album ,what a great group it all come's together for me on this album "Pure Magic " :)

I totally agree with that. This is one of my favorite albums, it was the first one I bought along with Abbey Road. The first time I heard it, I loved it, and I couldn't stop listening to it when I first got it. It truly is a great album.

My favourite album by a long shot. There's a mood/feeling running through it that makes it a joy. Not a weak moment.
I especially like the backing vocals - they're much more inventive than on the previous albums.

It's way up there on my list. I admit I bought Abbey Road first. Then the agony: Rubber Soul or Revolver? I think I broke down and bought them both!

But I think this album is from the Beatles at their great period-- still growing, still grooving together as a band, and pushing back the boundaries. Great songwriting excellently executed. *goes for a listen*

It's the best album. Wait and Run For Your Life are a bit off though, the writing is alot more sophisticated on the album apart from them two. That's the first album that was looked on by The Beatles as being a work of art, it shows.

It goes very well with a smoke. You can hear it properly with a smoke, it has that atmosphere on it.

This is my 2nd fav Beatkes album ever (with Pepper at !), & i agree has the last 3 or
4 year's have gone by, i've liked it so much better & better!! :) I think the songs are
very very strong & i've always consided it way better than Revolver. i still struggle with
Revolver being this so-called classic album, i like teh album of course but it has a
lot of fillers on it for me (doctor robert, and your bird can sing, i want to tell you).
But Rubber Soul dosen't do that for me at all. Every song is such a classic. I still think
that Drive My Car has the greatest operning beginning's to any album. that guitar
& bass setting up this wonderful album! and the cover is so cool too!! :D ;)

Besides Revolver I think Rubber Soul is one of their best albums.   They were evolving at that time and showed different styles and harmonies in most of the songs.  Also George introducing the sitar in Norwegian Wood, something I've always found interesting and that shows how innovative they were.

As of right now 'Rubber Soul' is my favorite. 'Drive my Car' always puts me in a good mood and 'Noreweigen Wood' is just inspiring and I love them whole album. It does keep getting better.
