Description & Features+

With Revolver, the Beatles made the Great Leap Forward, reaching a previously unheard-of level of sophistication and fearless experimentation. Sgt. Pepper, in many ways, refines that breakthrough, as the Beatles consciously synthesized such disparate influences as psychedelia, art-song, classical music, rock & roll, and music hall, often in the course of one song. Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita." There's no discounting the individual contributions of each member or their producer, George Martin, but the preponderance of whimsy and self-conscious art gives the impression that Paul McCartney is the leader of the Lonely Hearts Club Band. He dominates the album in terms of compositions, setting the tone for the album with his unabashed melodicism and deviously clever arrangements. In comparison, Lennon's contributions seem fewer, and a couple of them are a little slight but his major statements are stunning. "With a Little Help From My Friends" is the ideal Ringo tune, a rolling, friendly pop song that hides genuine Lennon anguish, a la "Help!"; "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" remains one of the touchstones of British psychedelia; and he's the mastermind behind the bulk of "A Day in the Life," a haunting number that skillfully blends Lennon's verse and chorus with McCartney's bridge. It's possible to argue that there are better Beatles albums, yet no album is as historically important as this. After Sgt. Pepper, there were no rules to follow -- rock and pop bands could try anything, for better or worse. Ironically, few tried to achieve the sweeping, all-encompassing embrace of music as the Beatles did here. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant Album! One of the best albums of all time if not the BEST!! I am 28 and I even realize that today's music can't hold a candle to this brilliance!! 'A Day in the Life' is my favorite song on this album and possibly the Beatle's strongest song in my opinion! There is a reason why Rolling Stone ranked this album #1 most influential album of all time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Timless Treasure To put it simply, this is just the greatest rock album of all time by far. The music is cleverly written in a rock opera style and a pure masterpiece embellished by many fans. Of all the Beatle albums my favorites are: A Hard Day's Night, Help! along with Rubber Soul. Those albums would be a trademark of The Beatles in their prime years but this really is the cream of the crop and is the best work by far they have ever undertaken. It introduced a new era to the music scene and changed the way rock and roll would follow thereafter its release. Paul had the idea of making this album on a plane ride back from the USA and the rest is historically stamped in rock history in addition to being a well deserved Grammy Award winner. There were months of idle time before the release of this album and critics said that The Beatles were dried up, boy were they wrong. It took five painstakingly months of meticulous take after take and improvising but the Fab Four along with Sir George Martin produced a ground-breaker in Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band to say the least. All of the music is still fresh to this day and I'd say it was introduced 20 years before it's time. You can't buy a better rock album in my opinion and I recommend this very highly to your collection. It's a must have. This milestone of a record reveals each Beatles talent individually and as a group if you can say that and I'll try to simplify that in four separate parts. What I mean is that Paul's bass playing on the album carries Sergeant Pepper. It shows the immense skills and creativity he had all along throughout the years. A track such as "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" is a prime example. This song was written by John and recorded at first without bass. Thereafter, Paul wrote the bass lines after hearing it. It's a work of art on Paul's part. You can even hear it on "With A Little Help From My Friends", a song written for Ringo Starr, the infamous Billy Shears. The bass has a deep rich tone and a harmonic melody which brings the song to life. Ringo's drumming is at its best on the entire album and exemplifies how much of a crucial part of the band he was. Ringo literally put a final stamp on all of the recordings. His drumming technique is superb and surpasses anyone in his time and even to this day with his signature style that polished The Beatles as a whole. Sure there are other drummers who were great like Buddy Rich, Keith Moon and John Bonham to name a few but Ringo paved the way for them and it's clear all over this album. An interesting and magnetic of a recording such as "Within Without You" reveals George's soul inspiration and tedious effort. By far George was the most underrated Beatle of the group and kept in the shadows by John and Paul's success as a song writing duo but George makes up for his almost lost presence on the album as a lead guitarist with this song. It's earth shattering and personifies his mark on the album. You have to realize that most of this record is dominated by Paul's bass playing but if you listen very carefully, George's guitar playing puts a final wallop on Sergeant Pepper. George once stated, "Where was I on that album?" Again, listen carefully. One of my favorite tracks is Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite. Not your everyday rock song. John came up with the idea for this song while rummaging through a thrift store where he found an old post advertising a circus act. All the words were taken from that post and ingeniously put together. I would say that this song in its detailed writing showed the raw talent alone that John had. The lyrics are incredible! There is so much to say about this album that words cannot fully explain the aurora of the sixties that The Beatles experienced during the psychedelic era. If you have never heard this album in it's entirely, get it, you will be in awe of the ingenious composition that went into the making of it. it's worth every penny that you spend and the music will literally blow you away! Whether you're thirteen or fifty, you will greatly admire this iconic album and really see the immense talent The Beatles had along with the underrated guidance of Sir George Martin who helped enhance The Beatles talent as a whole. There is music in all styles such as a soft ballad as "She's Leaving Home", a big band type melody such as "When I'm Sixty Four" to a pop rock melody like "Fixing A Hole". If you listen to Sergeant Pepper with a good quality headphone set, you will capture all of the little sounds that went into its recording and appreciate it more. The fine detail shines through if you hear it that way. The artwork cover in itself is ingenious too which is very unique and set a tone for other bands to follow its gesture and approach to a music album theme. After the recording was done, The Beatles knew this was their best so they picked the most famous people imaginable and favorites of their own to compliment Sergeant Pepper off. Just a brilliant idea! You will most definitely be just as captivated looking at the album cover over and over just as much as listening to the music. Lastly, when the album was released on vinyl in 1967, there were inserts and cutouts that came with it inside that captured the spirit of the album. If you have an old phonograph and don't mind a little crackle, get it in that version, it's a well sought out collector's item to a Beatles collection. I still play it every now and then and enjoy it just like the first time I listened to it. Some albums or songs get boring and seem so repetitive after hearing them over and over, that's not in this case. Each track sounds as invigorating as the first time you would have heard it, it never has a dull minute. It's simply a work of pure excellence and that's not even giving it enough praise. Like I previously stated, it's 20 years before its time resonating brilliance throughout decades of rock history.
