As for Pepper, it hasn't dated well except for its reputed impact on music, which wasn't as big as often supposed. The future of music was already being defined by others, including Jimi Hendrix.
The title track is good, and so is A Day in the Life. Each song gets one star. That's it.
First of all, there are a number of Beatle albums, although good, that don't rate as high as some of the best works by numerous groups of 60s & 70s including Led Zep, Pink Floyd and Hendrix. What unbiased reviewer would rate "Yellow Submarine" 5 stars?
As far as Sgt. Pepper - the first track is great. The last track is great. The middle of the album is very mediocre. Two tracks can't save the album, but they each get a star. And this album has dated over time. It sounds old, while the better 5-star albums still sound fresh.
This is an OK album with a few good tracks like A Day in the Life that can be had on the various greatest hits compilations without having to deal with songs like Within You Without You. 2-stars.
There's about 22 minutes of alright music on this album. My favorites are:
"Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds"
"Fixing A Hole"
"Being For The Benefit Of Mr. Kite"
"Within You Without You"
"When I'm Sixty-Four"
