Really difficult apart from the First choice. Abbey Road is The Difinitive Beatles Album surely? Everything else before is the long and winding road to perfection? Anyway, Here goes:

Abbey Road
Revolver
Sergeant Pepper
Rubber Soul
A Hard Day's Night
The Beatles (white Album)
Help!

beyond this I cannot say.. apart from the fact that compilation albums do not count. The blue or red albums are great (obviously) but they are bastard sons of fantastic inspiration caught and translated in a specific space and time. They don't belong in anyone's list.. It's like putting the invention of the bacon sandwich above the invention of the sandwich itself! ;sorry

By the way.. I bought the following domains last year in the hope that I could engage (in some way).. Beatles Fans to help celebrate the Beatles 50th Birthday? I have been underwhelmed at the lack of response to my efforts (so far) to share these domains with Beatles fans.. Having read some of the comments on this thread though I can see there is some real passion here.. especially partisan to certain albums, so I am hoping that this list might spark a response?

Revolver, Sergeant Pepper, Rubber Soul and Magical Mystery Tour.. seem to top Mr Kite's Bill.. so if there is anybody out there who would like a 50/50 share in a Beatles album site.. at no cost other than time and dedication.. then let me know. (Abbey Road Gurus need to move quick, cos this site is the most powerful of them all).. All is paid for.. domain Reg, hosting etc etc. All you need do is dedicate a couple of hours a week to update / co-own your own Beatles Website?? I can't run them all.. that is my problem. I cover the costs ..you run the site.. and we split any profits. If you want to donate 40% of the profits to a charity, then great. I'm up for that. I just don't want to waste the opportunity in a year that they could be put to constructive use and help us get our message out there to take the corporate edge of this year's forthcoming celebrations..

Anyway.. if you are adept (or could be) at using wordpress, then I'll even set it up for you.. If you want to run a Beatles Album site, just let me know. The album sites I own are available on a first come first served basis providing you are dedicated enough to maintain and run the site .. and keep it TOTALLY Beatles-centric. Here is the list of what I have available:
www.beatlesharddaysnight.com
www.thebeatlesrubbersoul.com
www.beatlesyellowsubmarine.net
www.bythebeatles.com
www.sergeantpepper.org
www.thebeatlesforsale.net
www.beatleswhitealbum.net
www.beatlesletitbe.net
www.beatlesrevolver.net
www.beatlesthewhitealbum.com
www.beatlesmagicalmysterytour.net
www.beatlesbluealbum.com
www.beatlesredalbum.com
www.beatlespleasepleaseme.com
www.thebeatleswhitealbum.net

Heh! Relax...mere cranial flatulence. An omission by error.

It would be 9 1/2 for me. Yes, I like 'Let It Be' better. Better songs, imo. 'Abbey Road' has some beautiful moments, especially with George's songs, which I think make the album and represent some of his best work with the group. But compared to their previous stuff most of these songs are relatively weak to me. Some are embarrassingly bad - 'Maxwell's Silver Hammer' - 'Octopus' Garden' - 'Oh, Darling' - please.

When it was first released I thought it was great. Now I view it as a sad documentation of their inability to function as a creative force any longer. They seemed to pull together to put up one last, slick, masterfully produced album of throwaways and/or incomplete, albeit brilliant, snippets of what could have been good songs if they were only worked a little more. Together, as a group. Again, George's songs are great - But where was Lennon/McCartney? Nowhere, man.

I know that many - or most - will disagree with me. Just my opinion.

Hmm, let me see:

1. Abbey Road
2. The White Album
3. Magical Mystery Tour
4. Revolver
5. Rubber Soul
6. Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band
7. Let It Be
8. Please Please Me
9. Beatles For Sale
10. A Hard Day's Night
11.Help!
12.With The Beatles
13.Yellow Submarine

YS is only half an album, but is still very good. And I tend to favor the later Beatles, over the early Beatles.

Well... after reading the staunch opinions stated in some of the previous posts, I hope my list doesn't cause a riot or get me banned but... here it is:

1. Rubber Soul (U.S. Version)
2. Revolver (UK)
3. Abbey Road
4. The Beatles
5. Sgt. Pepper
6. Let It Be
7. Help! (U.S.)
8. A Hard Day's Night (U.S.)
9. Meet The Beatles
10. MMT
11. The Beatles For Sale
12. Yellow Sub


I "discovered" the Beatles thru their U.S. Capitol releases and they are near and dear to my heart and ears. IMO, the US Rubber Soul is better than its UK counterpart due to the addition of I've Just Seen A Face and It's Only Love. For me, Drive my Car and What Goes On just don't "fit" as well as the two listed previously. Nowhere Man and If I Needed Someone would be great additions to the US version if Capitol had included 14 tracks.

I did not include the US Lp, Yesterday... And Today, because it had no direct UK counterpart. Otherwise, I would have listed it in the top four.

Never thought of that. I think it's an interesting point of view.

Well, they did make an attempt at putting out a good album. They had their problems with one another, yet still went for it. One must give them that.

As much as I bought into it when it was released, nowadays I have little or no desire to listen to it. Like I said, sad.

It has its moments. It's there. It's much beloved by many. Enough said by me.

Magical Mystery Tour counts, Kevin.  It's considered canon, even if some Brits and Aussies don't agree!   :police:
