Product Description

Amazon.ca

Before Sgt. Pepper's, no one seriously thought of rock music as actual art. That all changed in 1967, though, when John, Paul, George and Ringo (with "A Little Help" from their friend, producer George Martin) created an undeniable work of art which remains, after 3-plus decades, one of the most influential albums of all time. From Lennon's evocative word/sound pictures (the trippy "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds", the carnival-like "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite") and McCartney's music hall-styled "When I'm 64", to Harrison's Eastern-leaning "Within You Without You", and the avant-garde mini-suite, "A Day in the Life", Sgt. Pepper's was a milestone for both 1960s music and popular culture in general. --Billy Altman

3.0 out of 5 stars Watch out for clunkers Jan. 4 2000
Format:Audio CD
When I bought this album as a 12 year old in 1971 I thought it was the greatest thing I'd ever heard. My older brother and sister were in raptures about the whole thing and were contantly humming it around the house. When I bought the CD in 1987 I realised that it wasn't the be-all and end-all of rock music. Abbey Road was much better. In 2000 when I blow the dust off it and play it again I have to wonder what all the hype was about. Sure there are classic tracks (A Day In the Life, Lucy In the Sky) but there are also clunkers. BIG clunkers. How many times have you heard Getting Better advertising the latest washing powder or electrical appliance on TV? We can thank Michael Jackson for that, I suppose. Fixing a hole, (God give me strength) Within You Without You, the title track - it really brings you down to earth to listen to it all again from the perspective of 40 years. When I'm 64, Lovely Rita, Good Morning, Mr Kite and She's Leaving Home are not the stuff of musical immortality no matter how hard they try and are only marginally better than the previously mentioned tracks. The main interest in this album is the packaging. The elaborate cover, the printed lyrics, the supposed clues pointing to McCartney's "death" - all were ahead of their time and seemed to be the main reason why the project gained legendary status. The CD is even better - technical information on each track, photo outtakes of the cover and other shots, this CD is one of very few which justifies its cost. But if you discount all that and judge it on the music alone chances are you will be disappointed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Demographics 101 Nov. 19 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Concerning musical content, this album is O.K. I would not rate it the best album of all-time, of the 1960s, or of 1967. I don't think it's the best album by the Beatles either, but it's memorable for a variety of reasons, and I'd give it 3-stars.
People are noting that this album is the #1 choice in amazon.com's Best of the Millenium poll. The popularity of this album is attributable more to demographics (the study of population trends) and nostalgia than musical content. The baby boomers were at impressionable ages and the world was experiencing significant change in 1967. These factors combine to create vivid memories of where people were, what they were doing, and what they were listening to. An attraction to those times by this large population has lifted this album, and a lot of 60s and 70s music to the top of these polls. As time passes and this population decreases in size, this album too, will fade.
Put more simply, the same amazon.com poll rates Millenium by the Backstreet Boys as the #3 album of the century. So, if you choose to cite this poll as support for your view of Sgt. Pepper, you imply support for the Backstreet Boys at #3.
In summary, this album is not as bad as some say and not as good as some claim.

2.0 out of 5 stars Great album if you love the Beatles Oct. 13 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
You really have to love the Beatles to enjoy this album. Otherwise it's boring as all get out. If this were your first introduction to them you'd probably wonder what all the fuss was about. What they were doing in Sgt. Pepper required a whole lot of tolerance and good will which they earned by being so fab for so long. Fan's gobbled Sgt Pepper up and quickly pronounced that it must be great -- after all, it's the Beatles. Any criticism would be seen as an indictment of their very fanhood. You didn't dare question the Beatles in those days or you were deemed a cynic, or a malcontent, or a fool. Thankfully, culture has come a long way. It's okay to let out what many of us really felt all along: Sgt. Pepper stinks. The songs are a hodge-podge scramble of goofy singing and overbaked instrumentation. Did anyone ever dance to it? Not that I could tell. Did it touch anyone's heart? Gimme a break. Was it fun to listen to? Hard to say, since it felt so obligatory. If anyone seriously believes that Sgt. Pepper is the best album of the century, then what was the best film... Caddyshack?

Format:Audio CD
From time to time, music magazines like to do polls - whether of readers or critics - with titles like 'The Best 100 / 50 / 25 Albums of All Time' (and with the new century coming up in about six months' time, we'd better brace ourselves for a whole slew of 'Albums of the Millennium' features.)
'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts' Club Band' usually tops the list; if it doesn't, you'll find it somewhere in the top five. 'A milestone both for 60's music and popular culture' is the conventional wisdom. But it's a reputation that the album ill deserves. The great myth is that 'Sgt Pepper' is somehow revolutionary; yet all it does, in the main, is tap into well-established 20th century musical traditions. But affectionate parody, even when it's made as charming as the Beatles make it on songs like 'When I'm Sixty-Four', isn't breaking new ground. So what is it that makes 'Sgt. Pepper' special? 'The first concept album in the history of rock?' Hardly. (What's the concept, anyway? As John Lennon rightly pointed out, the title track sets up a premise that vanishes into thin air all the way down to the reprise.)
Come on, now. Put your hand on your heart and honestly say that 'Being For the Benefit of Mr. Kite', 'Fixing a Hole', or 'Good Morning, Good Morning' belong anywhere on a list of the Beatles' finest songs. (I won't insult your intelligence by throwing 'Within You, Without You' into the pot.) So it's impossible for an album to be good all the way through, you say. But didn't 'Revolver' almost pull off that feat? And, yeah, there's more weak material on the 'White Album' than on 'Sgt. Pepper' - but then, a pared-down, one-LP version of 'The Beatles' would surely beat 'Sgt.

This is where LP rock began. In a nutshell it's pretentious and brilliant. Just wish it was in glorious mono.

It took time to become a Beatle's fan. That's because I'm old ( in my eighties ) and I liked the 50's and 60's stuff when I was in high school. Read more
