But also one or two lows:
Why Don't We Do It In The Road
Wild Honey Pie
and I'm not hugely keen on Sexy Sadie, but I can just about put up with it.
Rev 9 is a great sound collage. Sheesh, just because they're not singing "yeah yeah yeah" in perfect 3 part harmony, you all seem to think it is a piece of s**t. I applaud John for attempting to open people's minds with avant garde music. Frank Zappa had been doing it so well on his early albums, mixing pop with weirdoness, and his 1967 Lumpy Gravy album is like Rev 9 for 3/4 of an hour, but with an emphasis on classical instruments and spoken word, I guess you guys wouldn't be able to handle that either. Hmmmm.
And what the hell is wrong with Why Don't We Do It In The Road and Sexy Sadie? WDWDIITR is a raw, stomping rock tune, it's brilliant, and such a first-rate vocal performance from Paul. Sexy Sadie has awesome production, great lyrics, very cool drumming, great piano arrangement, great vocals and backing vocals, and an excellent guitar solo. And Wild Honey Pie is a fun track, I don't know why anyone would have anything against that track.
A true Beatles fan would appreciate and love EVERYTHING on this album.
I needed comfort of love just to get me some piece of mind.. wo-oh
