I find Revolver the most equal album. They both contribute 5 knock-out tracks each. Don't find it more Paul-flavoured at all.

Don't get me wrong, I love John's songs on REVOLVER however I think Paul's are totally stronger and George had a real breakthrough on this record.

I also think Revolver is equally shared among the three geniuses. John's songs, She Said She Said, I'm Only Sleeping, Doctor Robert, Tomorrow Never Knows, And Your Bird Can Sing, have never, and will never, be bettered. Same goes for Paul's songs and George's (particularly Taxman). That's why it's head and shoulders above anything else out there. It is in a different league from anything else and it urinates copiously on everything else.

They're all equally on the top of their game on this album, and it really is a "band" album. Especially on ....Your Bird Can Sing, they are firing on all cylinders

Greatest album cover EVER!! haha I think this album is amazing because George brings the indian influence into Love You To which was really important and Good Day Sunshine sounds very Pepper to me so I think you can see them starting to go into the future ooooo haha you can see them starting to change the world :lol:

We all know that Paul is playing the lead guitar on Taxman. Do you think he made up the solo on this or was told by Harrison??

According to Geoff Emerick George Harrison couldn`t come up with a solo good enough so George Martin asked Paul to do it.

Isn't the story with most of the tracks where Paul plays lead guitar that George would be spending hours working out a precise solo and Paul would wing in and just knock something great up off the cuff?

Great, fantastic, incredible album. We all know that in this album they stopped touring and decided to take a break, which they deserved, but it would have been wonderful to have The Beatles performing songs from Revolver, if not in a concert maybe in some TV show or special. Maybe an acoustic version of I'm only sleeping or Here, there and everywhere, Eleanor Rigby with real strings and two rockers, She said, she said and Taxman.
We can make it to Mexico City...AGAIN!!!!!
