Amoeba Review

Kris Konrad, Hollywood 11/07/2012

Never satisfied with the same old sound, the Beatles crank their super powers way past ten and create a whole new rock language on Revolver. On opener "Taxman" with its dry wit count off, piercing power chords, political lyrics and stabbing bass lines, the Beatles practically invent punk rock. On the psychedelic rock-trance groove closer "Tomorrow Never Knows," they invent something beyond description. John's voice on "I'm Only Sleeping" floats along half dreaming over reversed guitar, oblivious to the outside world in stark, but beautiful contrast with Paul's infectiously outgoing "Good Day Sunshine." The characters in the somber string filled ode to loneliness "Eleanor Rigby" find family and friends in the bar room singalong "Yellow Submarine." The "experience" seeking adventurers in "Doctor Robert" discover doubt, paranoia, and their inner child in "She Said She Said." The prideful stubbornness of "I Want To Tell You" makes way for unabashed sweet talk on "Here, There And Everywhere." The brassy new love excitement of "Got To Get You Into My Life" is giddy and innocent compared to the mantra like "Love You To" with its full Indian instrumentation and Utopian vision. "Make love all day long. Make love singing songs." Right on brother. Revolver is heavy, heady, sweet, sad, and even scary at times. It sounds like nothing before or since. Strap on your headphones securely and enjoy the ride. Read More
