Amoeba Review

Kris Konrad 11/26/2014

180 Gram Vinyl. Packaging includes replica psychedelic inner sleeve, cardboard cutout sheet and additional insert.

 

The Beatles weren't the only band to record a legendary psychedelic album in 1967. They weren't even the only ones at Abbey Road Studios. However, they were the best. With the help of producer George Martin, the Beatles used or invented every studio trick available to create arguably the most original and otherworldly sounding album of all time. Between the opening murmurs of the anticipating crowd on the title track and the spliced tape groove at the end lies a lesson in modern music. The Beatles sonic scope expands and contracts effortlessly with horns, harps, orchestras and even a rooster weaving a web of daringly original music. The album oozes highlights. In particular, the question and answer "With A Little Help From My Friends," the hallucinatory "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds," the suggestive "Lovely Rita," the circus fantasy "Being For The Benefit of Mr. Kite!" and the gleefully optimistic "Getting Better" are all masterfully guided by Paul's incredible bass work. The sudden, empty-nest sadness of "She's Leaving Home" is heartbreaking. The swirling meditation of "Within You Without You" is transcendent. The man on the scene "Good Morning Good Morning" is vibrant and energizing. Sgt. Pepper majestically concludes with one of the last true Lennon/McCartney collaborations, the sprawling genre defying epic "A Day In The Life." Words can't do the album justice. Find out for yourself.
