The Beatles' final album, which was actually recorded before 'Abbey Road' but released after, was mired in confusion. After the sprawling and tension-filled sessions for 'The White Album,' in which the four members basically became each other's backing bands, the Beatles secluded themselves in the studio, hoping to rekindle their passion for music and each other. It didn't work out that way. The album sat on the shelves for more than a year, until producer Phil Spector tried assembling a record from the aborted sessions
The Beatles were on their way to breaking up, with members of the band fighting with each other as they recorded the album that was meant to get them to work together again. It’s a disjointed mess with a few good songs, so everyone’s glad the group got together to record one more time before disbanding for good (Abbey Road was recorded after Let it Be but released before the latter). To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the iconic White Album, we ranked their best albums.
The White Album is the best Beatles album because it shows most fully the Beatles range of songwriting skills and influence. it's astonishing their ability to write brilliantly in so many vastly different styles. Everyone is writing at their best (even Ringo wrote a hit!). The White Album is the perfect example of what the Beatles were: the greatest interpreters of the world's music. No other album encompasses their genius as completely. It's cohesiveness is found in its sheer diversity.
The Beatles may have released Let It Be last, but their final work as a band was Abbey Road. It's definitive proof that the band broke up at the absolute height of their powers. Recorded in the summer of 1969 after the torturous Let It Be sessions, The Beatles knew that Abbey Road was going to be their last effort, so they put aside their differences to craft a masterpiece. The best part of the LP, however, is side two – a 16-minute suite of songs that seamlessly flow together. Who knows what would have happened had they stuck together for a few more albums. 9. ‘A Hard Day’s Night’. This is the first Beatles album that's entirely comprised of original material. John Lennon and Paul McCartney had grown into such strong songwriters that they no longer needed to rely on covers.
An album is defined by the Official Charts Company (OCC) as being a type of music release that features more than four tracks and lasts longer than 25 minutes; during the 1960s, sales of albums in the United Kingdom were compiled by several different magazines, including New Musical Express (NME), Record Retailer, Melody Maker, Disc and Record Mirror.
60s The Best Beatles Albums. Originally by Ranker Community. After becoming the greatest and most popular band in the world the Beatles decided that they would rather be artists than performers. Especially after they stopped touring, 'the album' became the focus of their creative energy and the central channel through which the listener experienced the band. With the Beatles or Meet the Beatles or The Beatles? It's time to finally decide which Beatles album is the greatest and this time you, the fans, get the vote! And once you've voted for and ranked all the albums, you can get really detailed and vote for the best Beatles songs ever. Long live Beatlemania!
The Beatles, Meet The Beatles, The Beatles’ Second Album (though All Music Guide makes a good case for it), Something New, Beatles ’65, and Beatles IV. The countless repackaged retrospectives and rarities comps, from Past Masters to The Beatles Anthology, are excluded too. OK, let’s do it! . The Beatles hadn’t yet helped to cement the concept of the album as a band’s predominant artistic statement when With The Beatles dropped in 1963. Rock ‘n’ roll was still a singles-driven enterprise. Opener It Won’t Be Long rollicks with the best of them, and All My Loving is one for the canon. But there’s more filler this time around.
