Wow! After that rolling Stone review i just had to pull out the CD and give it a whirl. It made me remember how much I love the song I Will. Amazing song and Paul in superb form crafting what he does best.

:-D everything about the songwriting by all is inventively surprising...

it's like they opened up the doors to a vast, dark room and said...let's light this mother up !

there simply is no slacking anywhere...and it just has always seemed so effortless to me...like everything led up that moment where, despite what we all now believe was going on, they just went about like a group of friends playfully, slyly, artistically topping each other

all while at each others throats ?!?!!

amazing !!

I'd have to say that the White album is one of my all time favorite Beatles albums.
So many great songs, and such a wide variety. From Back in the USSR to Good Night and everything in between, sheer genius!

Imagine Paul for once changed I Will it to piano. So many songs could be great in other arrangements

this album shows paul's range as a writer and a singer. there are plenty of songs he could do live from this album. and the album as a whole? it's all over the place. and it's a mess. and that makes it utterly, fantastically, weirdly awesome. it couldn't be more different from abbey road or sgt pepper. and i'd have it no other way.

Three days after its UK release, The Beatles' self-titled double album, commonly known as the White Album, was issued in the United States.

The Beatles (White Album) - The Beatles
It debuted at number 11 in the charts, climbed to number two, then finally reached number one in its third week of release. The delay may have been caused by the slightly higher price for a double album, which could have prevented many young fans from affording it.

Nonetheless, the White Album became a huge commercial success for The Beatles. It spent 155 weeks on the Billboard 200 chart, and eventually became the group's best-selling album according to the Recording Industry Association of America. The album has been certified 19-times platinum and is the 10th best-selling album of all time in the United States.

Unlike in the United Kingdom, the US version of the White Album was issued only in stereo. The catalog number was Apple SWBO-101.

After just one month on sale the White Album had sold more than four million copies worldwide, and by the end of 1970 global sales were around 6.5 million. Until the release of the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack it was the best-selling double album of all time. :salute

I have a few criticisms of the White Album:

1. Wild Honey Pie is totally unnecessary
2. Yer Blues -- I much preferred John's live version with Eric Clapton
3. Long Long Long is too quiet
4. Revolution 9 isn't really music
5. Goodnight sounds like Phil Spector got to it

Other than that, the White Album is great
