Just stuck them on for the first time in ages. Sounds strange, but I'd actually forgotten how good they were.

 

I reckon in 50-100 years time, they'll be placed alongside the likes of Beethoven and Mozart in terms of reaching musical perfection.

 

Revolver is an absolute masterpiece. No two ways about it.

They already are mate. The Beatles were unbelievably good. The quality of their music never ceases to amaze me. Breathtakingly good.

I only like the high as kites Beatles, all the rest was too clean for me.

 

McCartney is a cunt and Lennon was what Geldof, Bono and Chris Martin want to be.

 

Harrison was the glue that brought the music together, as important as Lennon/McCartney were, without Harrison they would not have the status they have.

I'm at a time of my life where I'm a Beatles fan again. It happens every few years but when it does I'm amazed all over again. Abbey Road is the one for me at the mo, it happens in stages with them.

If you ever want to disturb the neighbours - for about a half-mile radius - play It's All Too Much as loud as it deserves to be played.

If you had a poll on their best album, the votes would be split. That's how good they were and how much their music changed from pretty much album to album.

 

I'm gonna wait until their remastered box set comes down way in price and invest in it.

No other band or artist comes remotely close to how good they were.

 

A day in the Life - fucking hell how fucking good...

Bought the Remastered version of Revolver last week and haven't stopped listening to it! The combinations of guitar and great lyrics made musical genius, the album will continue to be the greatest to ever be created due to its diversity and originality.

 

My favourite song from that album is I'm only sleeping or Taxman, cant decide due to the brilliance of the album (even the cover is boss!)

Nothing good can be said about them that hasn't already been said. I go through phases where I really get into some new music but then I hear a song by them and just get out the albums and listen to them non stop.

It's true. You go through a spell of not listening to them for a while and then when you get around to banging their Albums on again, you realise just how fucking brilliant they were.

 

Apparently, the Red Hot Chili peppers are better according to one loon on another thread.

What?? What did Lennon ever do for anyone other than himself? Fantastic musician and songwriter that he was, not the most charitable human being to walk the earth though. Most of his "protests" were just self serving bollocks. His untimely death sadly blinkered people into thinking he was some sort of a Saint. He wasn't.

I love them, no denying it, but I do wonder if they get a lot of love on here because they are from Liverpool. I sometimes wonder if people on other area related places forums like them as much.

They did a lot for liverpool music and music in general but there is more to our musical history than the beatles and a lot of people forget that. Thats my biggest annoyance with the beatles. I prefer the stones myself

 

That amazes me. The Beatles were more innovative in 7 years than the Stones have been in 40 odd years.

I think you've hit on the key point as to what makes them so great. The creative roll they went on in just 7 years is quite unbelievable.

I'm not doubtin that mate. I just personally prefer the stones. Neither are must listen to bands for me. I prefer my music a little heavier shall we say.

Fair enough, music is all about opinions. Always felt the Stones were a bit of a one trick pony, albeit a one trick pony that wrote some classics. Sadly nothing after the mid 70's though. They're embarrassing now.

    • Fucking hell, 7 years for this. Id have the bastard's swinging on the end of a rope.   The statement by her father is heartbreaking.   A man who left his teenage girlfriend unable to walk or talk after she fell out of a van at 60mph while being kidnapped has been jailed for just seven years.    Angel Lynn, 19, was found lying seriously injured in the carriageway of the A6 near Loughborough, Leicestershire on September 17, 2020. She suffered a fractured skull and brain injuries and requires round-the-clock care and is unlikely to ever make a full recovery.   Her boyfriend at the time Chay Bowskill, 20, and his friend Rocco Sansome, 20, both denied kidnapping but were found guilty following a trial on Tuesday.    Jurors were shown CCTV of the moment Bowskill chased down the teenager when she walked off during an argument before he bundled her into a van.   Footage shows Bowskill grabbing her from behind in a bear hug and carrying her back across the road in the village of Mountsorrel.   Angel then fell out of the vehicle as it was travelling along at 60mph at around 10.45am before she was discovered by members of the public.   Paramedics attended the scene and Angel was taken to hospital but despite intensive medical intervention she remains in hospital with life-changing injuries.    Both men were later arrested after detectives uncovered footage of Angel being forced into the van with Sansome driving it away. Bowskill was also convicted of coercive and controlling behaviour and perverting the course of justice but was cleared of causing grievous bodily harm.   Prosecutors alleged Bowskill had thrown his partner out of the van but it could not be proved how Angel fell from the vehicle. On Wednesday he was jailed for seven-and-a-half years while Sansome, of Birstall, was sentenced to 21 months in prison at Leicester Crown Court.   Judge Timothy Spencer QC described Bowskill as "vile" and said if it wasn't for the kidnap Angel would not have suffered her "devastating injuries."   He told the defendant his treatment of his girlfriend was "degrading" and she was belittled to the point she must have "felt worthless".   Detective Chief Inspector Tony Yarwood, from the East Midlands Special Operations Unit Major Crime team, said: "Angel is a young woman who had plans and aspirations in place and the rest of her life to look forward to.   "Because of the extent of her injuries she now faces constant medical treatment and round the clock care.   "Her family remain devastated by what has happened and I praise the strength and bravery they have shown and continue to demonstrate to this day.   "No verdict or subsequent sentence can make up for the quality of life this young woman has lost. "I can only hope that in time her family can find some comfort knowing justice has been done."   In a heartbreaking statement issued after the case, Angel's dad, Paddy, said: "Our lives have been changed beyond recognition forever.   "Angel was so full of life and had such a great future ahead of her. "That future has sadly been taken away from her. "The catastrophic injuries Angel suffered will mean life will never be the same for her or our family.   "Every day is not only a huge struggle for Angel but also a huge struggle for our family and friends.   "We are lucky in some ways as we are a close family, we have lots of lovely friends who help us and people that care in other ways. "We try to remain strong but we know that every day will be difficult and a struggle for us all especially for Angel.   "I know that Angel will never get married now and I will never get to walk my daughter down the aisle.   "Nikki and I will never be grandparents to Angel's children. We don't know what the future holds for our daughter but we try to put smiles on our faces each day but inside our hearts are bleeding out. "We'd like to thank all the officers involved in the investigation, our family liaison officers and our barrister, Mr Janes for their support throughout the last 16 months.   "They have all worked so hard and their dedication to Angel's case has been remarkable."
    • I'm sure that there was some suggestion in some of the Homebaked Committee meetings that the area of Oakfield Rd by the ground was going to be pedestrianised. May be wishful thinking on my part, but if correct it might make room for a Kop expansion of some sort.
