Beatles' Revolver and Rubber Soul Are the Band's Best Two Albums

By Rachel Morgans

The Beatles put out a ton of great albums, but some time in between when the Beatles were doing a lot of pop and before they got to the end of their career, they put out the best two albums of their career. Revolver and Rubber Soul, which could technically be considered a double album, marks the best time to be a Beatles fan.

Songs like "She Loves You" were fun, but looking back, they lacked originality and complexity. The Beatles were busy touring and making a name for themselves, which hurt their creativeness.

Soon after they decided to stop touring, a pair of albums were launched with new complexity. Rubber Soul and Revolver had stuff never tried before by musicians, and became must-have albums.

I personally became a pretty big fan of these two albums because it was during a transition period. They were signifying things to come, while still holding on to their past. The climax of their career if you would.

Later, they would begin to get a little too experimental and become lost on some people. Don't get me wrong, the Beatles' worst song is better than most band's best, but none show the variety one can find on these albums.

Songs like "The Word," "Michelle," "Run for Your Life","Taxman" and "Good Day Sunshine" are just some of the songs that show off the way they changed for the better spending more time in the studio.

After all, can you find two more different songs than "Yellow Submarine" and "Tomorrow Never Knows?"

Since we're on the subject of music, I'd recommend taking a look at cheap car stereos. Prices have dropped like a rock, and with technologies out there like DVD car audio, you can get some great deals for yourself.
