In many ways, Beatles For Sale heralded Rubber Soul
Hee, that's great! It must be the approved line-up.

I think so, hh.  I know it happened once before when I posted those pictures in a previous thread, but I couldn't resist posting them again.

I always felt that the somewhat somber original compositions on BFS reflected their desire to spend more time in the studio and express theselves more fully.

Wiki makes the interesting point that if you hold the Rubber Soul logo to a mirror it appears to say Road Abbey!

Oh, that's brilliant.  ;D

Actually, it appears to say "Road Yabbey". Why the extra "Y"? Is it pointing to the fork in the road, the change in direction the Beatles decide to take?

Of course, having just read the "George is a Rabbit" thread, I thought the first character was a stylized bunny head-- yet another clue to George's true nature. ;)

I'm sure most people know that Revolver often wins critics "best album ever" polls, but I think Rubber Soul is at least just as good, so I built a site to prove it!

Rubber Soul in both the UK and US incarnations is my favorite 1962 - 1966 period Beatles album. Everything with the exception of What Goes On and Run For Your Life are excellent songs. Even What Goes On and Run For Your Life are pretty good really, they're just weak compared to the best Beatles material.

I scored 15-6 for Revolver but then I'm a huge Revolver fan.

Overall points are very close. Revolver leads Rubber Soul 1873-1810 with no less than 2773 points for tied songs.

Get in there and vote for your preferred album of the two, folks!

I love this album. I would have to admit it is probably one of my fav's along with Help! and Pepper's but this tops them all. even though this was I think when they started getting into drugs it's just so meaningful. It's so clear and like earthy. :)
