Don't believe the hype about this Beatle collection ... yes, it has amazing peaks at its beginning and ending, but it also has incredibly-low valleys in-between. John Lennon himself never thought much of this album, or how it became to be known as a "concept" album--The Wall by Pink Floyd is a concept album, not this. What bogs Sgt. Pepper down are the middle cuts (I was about to talk about album sides) "Fixing A Hole," "She's Leaving Home," "Mr. Kite," "Within/Without You" "Good Morning" these ALL sound so uninspired and subpar especially for a group as talented as the Beatles--maybe too much of the lysergic, eh lads? ... Get "Revolver"--a TRUE Beatle classic, then check out the almost-just-as-magnificent "Rubber Soul."
