Product Description

Amazon.ca

Rank 'em how you like, Rubber Soul is an undeniable pivot point in the Fab Four's varied discography no matter where, or how, you first heard it. So many classics: "Drive My Car" and "Nowhere Man" merge the early combustible Beatifics to a burgeoning studio consciousness; "The Word" can be read as a pre-psych warning shot; the sitar-laden "Norwegian Wood" and the evocative "Girl" (the latter written on the last night of the sessions) stand as turning points in John Lennon's oeuvre. George finally emerges too, with the McGuinn-ish "If I Needed Someone". --Don Harrison

5.0 out of 5 stars the first Beatles masterpiece May 24 2005
Format:Audio CD
RUBBER SOUL remains a milestone in The Beatles' recording careers. It ushered in their most celebrated and sophisticated musical phase that is unrivalled to this day.
In the 20 months since The Beatles landed in America to the time the band recorded this album, rock 'n' roll had undergone a revolution, sparked by The Beatles themselves. The British invasion inspired Bob Dylan to go electric, while The Beatles converted the L.A. folk quartet, The Byrds, to replace their acoustic guitars with electric music. Add to this the whiff of American grass and you get the influences which shaped the late-1965 Beatles.
Above all, the Beatle's songwriting takes a big leap forward with RUBBER SOUL. For the first time John, Paul and George avoid the cliched boy-meets-girl songs and address introspective themes. Though RUBBER SOUL was widely viewed as Just Another Beatles Album in late-1965, some listners took notice of the words with as much care as they did Dylan albums. Some started to use the word "poetry" to describe Beatles music.
The album opens superbly with the funky Drive My Car which features a sharp vocal by Paul and a gorgeous bass influenced by Motown. John's Norwegian Wood is one of the record's highlights and introduces the sitar to Western ears. It obliquely tells of an affair John once had. You Won't See Me could've easily been a single. Paul's song, it is simply structured but strong. Nowhere Man was actually pulled as a single in the U.S. and is the first Beatles song not to talk about love or girls. John looks in the mirror and finds himself lost in a lyric that was one of his best (Dylan covered it many years later). George's Think For Yourself also steers away from the love song and features Paul playing the distinctive fuzz bass.

A wonderful album, and the quality of the 180 gram vinyl is incredible. This is my first 180 gram album and it was quality enough to determine that 180 gram is the way to go!

5.0 out of 5 stars Evolution Sept. 4 2000
Format:Audio CD
There are a certain group of music fans in this world who believe that musical groups should not be allowed to evolve and experiment with new materials; the same old thing should be repeated over and over again. That's the problem we have with music today: you're either a clone of the Backstreet Boys, Limp Bizkit, or Matchbox 20; there is no "alternative" anymore, and people seem to like it that way. So, therefore, it makes sense that the Beatles could not exist in the world of today. The world of mid-sixties was quite a radical time, and the Beatles, with their previous pop successes, seem willing to take up the mantle of trying something new. Hence, we have "Rubber Soul", the very first "alternative" album ever; heck, it was the first important album ever. Before it, success was judged on singles and individual songs, and their positions on the charts (unfortunately also the case today). Then the John, Paul, George, and Ringo came out with this: an actual album that was to be taken as a whole, not as parts. And when you think about, is there a "She Loves You" or an "I Wanna Hold Your Hand" on this album? Doubtful. Keeping the philosophy of "whole" in mind, the four young lads now had the freedom to experiment with such instruments as the sitar (name a pop artist that uses a sitar!) and experiment with many different genres of music. In the process of making this album, they revolutionized music altogether. I recall reading Brian Wilson's comment on "Rubber Soul." It was true. With "Rubber Soul," the Beatles had unknowingly upped the ante, and turned rock and roll into a hotbed of creativity. Read more ›

By BeatleBangs1964 TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my favorite Beatles albums. When this was released in late 1965, the Beatles were already experimenting with different musical styles. The songs on this collection run the full gamut of expression and styles from the highly romantic ballad "Michelle" to the highly danceable "Wait" and "Drive My Car." The lyrics are nonpareil and remain so to this day. The blend of guitar, drum and harmonies remains flawless and unrivalled. "In My Life" is truly an exceptional work of art. It is a musical masterpiece. The lyrics evoke strong feelings and the gentle harmony provides a pleasant contrast to the strong feelings expressed in the lyrics. I always felt it was a shame that most of these songs did not get a lot of radio play (e.g."Wait," "You Won't See Me," "Run for Your Life.") The work contained on this album is of impeccably high caliber and it is something to be heard and treasured to this day.
If I could, I would rate this one more stars.
