    These are my favorite Beatles records...which one do you like best and why? Abbey Road is number one for me. The range of emotions and overall mood of the record is just amazing.

    Keep the answers to these 3 only!

    Of those 3, Abbey Road.

    Add Rubber Soul into the mix, and the choice becomes harder.

    Revolver and Rubber Soul were the high point for me.

    Tough to choose between Revolver and Abbey Road, but I have so many more memories of Abbey Road growing up. I got it for Christmas one year when my family was in the middle of moving to a different city. I also got a Clue puzzle, and every time I hear Maxwell's Silver Hammer I think a little about sitting in the old house, putting together the puzzle, and listening to the song thinking how it could fit if only there were a Maxwell and a silver hammer in the board game.

    Since I've gone back and really listened to everything from the later years I've really grown to love Let it Be and the White Album as well... and so naturally when Love (Cirque du Soleil soundtrack done by George Martin and his son) came out last year or so I ran out to get it and it blew my ******* mind.

    Sgt. Pepper really blew my mind when I was a teenager. I'll always have that one at the top of my list :AOK

    Tough but I picked Revolver. I think the songs were generally better, though maybe not the production. They still seemed more like a band at that point than 4 different studio entities. Also, Revolver has been played ever so slightly less into the ground for me. Ask me tomorrow and I might choose differently.

    Jim...my sentiments exactly. Though I hold a special place in my heart for Sgt. Pepper (I drove to NYC to get it before it was available in Boston) and, DAMN!... I like ALL their albums!:love:

    None of the Beatles LP's changed the goalposts like Sgt Pepper did. A defining moment in musical history for sure.

    You didn't ask which was best but rather which we like best. I like that, it's the right question to ask and one that everyone answers correctly.

    I chose Sgt. Peppers. I can't put it into words, I just love it the most.

    Revolver probably has the strongest songs, and Abbey Road is probably the best executed, but Pepper changed all of the rules and is, I think, the most important. I still get the biggest kick out of listening to it.

    I remember Sgt. Pepper as being a completely different approach and sound to all their previous stuff.... it was surprising but wonderful at the same time. I think I know every word to every song.
