Listened to this album today. It was a good listen as most of the songs have stood the test of time but there were a few songs that just havent aged well. The ones to me that havent aged well were Love You To, Here There Everywhere, Yellow Submarine (never have cared for this song). Other songs on here I enjoy but like covers of them better like Eleanor Rigby (love the Soulive cover of this), Tommorow Never Knows (Ratdog, especially the Flying Rat Brigade one with Les Claypool), She Said She Said (Govt Mule). The rest of it is great music which made the Beatles so popular and loved by alot of people.

When I bought The Beatles Stereo Box in 2009 (with all the remastered albums),
I noticed how wonderful Revolver sounded with the sonic upgrade.

My favorite tracks on Revolver include "And Your Bird Can Sing," "I'm Only Sleeping," and
"I Want To Tell You." I like all the songs on Revolver, but those 3 are my absolute favorites.

As a kid, the Beatles were my first musical love affair. I can remember hearing "She loves you" on the am radio and seeing them on Ed Sullivan with the whole family packed around the TV and recall my Mother thinking Ringo was the "Cute" one...Go figure. My Father took pleasure in making sure that the new Beatles album was on my record player on the day it was released, each time. By the time Revolver was in the store bins, my interest had waned, (Harder stuff you know)...only to re emerge when "Abbey road" hit my turntable...Anyway, I agree with your assessment here, the record kind of faded from my memory and rarely do I think of it, but it is the Beatles and there were always hidden gems on those records. "Taxman" & "I want to tell you" ...were two of my favorites on this one, but then again, George was the Man.

Yeah, I mean, that's still a couple of good songs on there once you take all those out.

I'm not sure about the songs "not aging well." I think the album helped define the music of that period. There's psychedlic-ness all over it and that marks the time the album was made, but I don't think that's the same thing as aging badly. Yellow Submarine isn't deep, but it's fun. I think Here, There and Everywhere is a beautiful song and I think Love You To is one of the best songs on the album. It's intense.

If I had to pick three favorites from this one, it'd be Tomorrow Never Knows, Taxman, and ... I don't know. I could take Love You To, I'm Only Sleeping, or Eleanor Rigby.

My favorite Beatles album. I had a grate experience listening to it on the way back from Cincinnati after an ABB show that had the DTB opening for PL&F who opened for the ABB. I can't remember the year, but what a ride home.

I would say it's my favorite Beatle album, just barely edging Rubber Soul and Abbey Rd.

not aging well??? different strokes I guess.
Not crazy about Yellow Submarine, but it's one of those tunes that you have to go along with the joke.
The rest of the album, imo is stellar.
Add Paperback Rider and Rain to that era - mind blown

Number one Beatles record for me too. Love those big fat guitars. It is unreal that they came up with this music in 1966 ! As far as Yellow Submarine goes, might be a bit less of a yawn if you listen for the uncredited backing vocals, in which you will hear the voices of Donovan, Brian Jones, Marianne Faithfull, and Pattie Boyd (of Layla fame).

One of the greatest albums ever made. Sounds as good today as the day it was made

It's the Beatles overall best album IMO. I don't think a single track has not aged well. While I adore Mule's version of She Said She Said, the Beatle version is incomparable. Here There and Everywhere is a timeless love song. It was the song we used for the recap on our wedding video. You didn't even mention what may be the best track of all "Got to Get You into My Life."

Great Beatles album but only my third favorite after Sgt. Peppers which introduced me to the Beatles and Rubber Soul which is probably the Beatles album that I spin most of the time these days.

Wow, I don't believe I have ever heard anyone say that a Beatles song played by another band is better than the original performed by The Beatles. Wow, never heard that. As good as one of the other bands may play a Beatles tune, no way it sounds better than the Fab Four playing and singing it. Ratdog's version better than The Beatles? Wow.

I have to agree with Wayne about Tomorrow Never Knows, which I think is one of the most perfectly realized studio recordings of all time, especially since I don't care for Ratdog.

However, I have Ipowrie's back on Soulive's cover of Eleanor Rigby. Just smoking! Their covers of Come Together, Revolution and I Want You (She's So Heavy) get more airplay from me than the Beatles' originals as well.

Anybody who digs instrumental music and/or the word "dig" needs to get hip to Soulive

Rubber Soul is tops for me..

But IMHO, Revolver is flawless and has stood the test of time.

I actually listened to the remastered version last night while working out. I must say it definitely stands the test of time. I remember thinking that John's compositions were extra special: I'm only sleeping, Dr. Robert, And your Bird Can sing, She Said She Said and Tomorrow Never Knows. Taxman is an explosive opener even though Paul plays the lead guitar break and not George. I love Paul's For No One. Great album for sure but I love Rubber Soul just a bit better.

I like to stir the pot what can I say . Actually I think part of my reasoning for liking covers better is that the covers fit in were my musical taste are today that and I was raised with the idea that the Beatles were just another band and that there was nothing overly special about them and that other bands made just as good or even better music then them.
