Product Description

Amazon.ca

Better known as the "White Album," this was meant to be the record that brought them back to earth after three years of studio experimentation. Instead, it took them all over the place, continuing to burst the envelope of pop music. Lennon and McCartney were still at the height of their powers, with Lennon in particular growing into one of rock's towering figures. But even McCartney could still rock, and the amazement on "Helter Skelter" was that he had vocal cords at the end. From Beach Boys knock-offs to reggae and to the unknown ("Revolution #9"), this has it all. Some records have legend written all over them; this is one. --Chris Nickson

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best album of all time. July 15 2004
By Matt
Format:Audio CD
I cannot put into words some aspects of the perfection of this disc. Don't let those whining over "drugs" being a problem - If you consider anything "unlistenable" on this disc, you haven't heard any avant-garde industrial (Which isn't bad either). Keep in mind a good percentage of the world finds most popular music unlistenable to begin with. One of the greatest collections of songs ever put out, the creativity within the beatles is purely amazing considering they were more popular than Britney Spears (Who is completely fake). Their originality, style, and performance shines through as something truly beautiful. If you can't appreciate at least one song on this disc, there has to be something wrong with you. One for the ages, file it besides Mozart.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Summary of the 60's music expression June 7 2001
Format:Audio CD
1968 was a very significant year in pop & rock's music growth and development. The psychedelic mood that started in 1967 together with the experimentation concepts were evolving into a heavier and more aggressive sound that eventually lead into progressive and hard rock during the 70's. The Beatles contributed to the process of change with this album that consists of a combination of solo and group efforts, and a large variety of different music styles.
Regardless of the different music preferences and the like or dislike for the Beatles' music, the "double white" adds value based on the following concepts. First, it offered a summary of almost every style played during the 60's. (1) Rock'n Roll ("Back To the USSR", "Every Body's Got Something To Hide"...), (2) Heavy Rock ("Helter Skelter", "Birthday"), (3) Electric Blues ("Yer Blues"), (4) Jazz ("Honey Pie"), (5) Folk-Rock (the album's version of "Revolution"), (6) Folk ("Blackbird", "I Will" "Julia", "Rocky Raccoon"), (7) Experimental ("Revolution No 9"), (8) Baroque ("Piggies"), (9) Raw expressions ("Wild Honey Pie", "Why Don't We Do It..."), (10) Heavy Ballads ("Happiness is a Warm Gun", "Dear Prudence", "Sexy Sadie") and, (11) Typical 60's pop (from "Ob-la-di-Ob-la-da", "While My Guitar..." through "Don't Pass Me By"). Second, the sound of the instruments evolved significantly as bass was given a protagonic role ("Dear Prudence" or "Birthday") as opposed to being kept in the back of the tracks. Guitars were used to create a forceful atmosphere ("Helter Skelter", "Every body's Got.."... "Yer Blues").

4.0 out of 5 stars not a soundtrack Sept. 3 2009
Format:Audio CD
Dear Mrs Amazon,

Even if The White Album is the Soundtrack of many lives, it is not a soundtrack. So, take out the word soundtrack please.

About the white album, if you are an average Beatles fan who was rise with the Blue(67-70) album. You will discover great songs rarely play on the radio (I will, Dear Prudence, Julia...).

Hope my english is understandable!

Jacques

5.0 out of 5 stars Erratic, uneven, sloppy...yet somehow brilliant Dec 25 2005
Format:Audio CD
Ironically The Beatles entitled their Sgt. Pepper follow-up "The Beatles" when it was really a solo effort by four musicians. There are few harmonies on this album, and minmial songwriting collaboration. Also, a good third of the songs are disposable (by Beatle standards) such as Honey Pie and Piggies.
Yet despite the dips in quality, The White Album is an album I play regularly from start to finish. I suppose that a lot of the White Album's charm comes from the sequencing of songs that juxtapose rock with country with folk with experimental; that four composers are at work; Paul excels with Back in the USSR and Blackbird; that George's songwriting takes a big step forward (White My Guitar Gently Weeps just may be the best cut); that John returns to the forefront of the band with outstanding work (Dear Prudence, Julia and Yer Blues; and the album creates its own universe by sheer size and variety.
Though not my favourite Beatles album, and not a masterpiece along the lines of Revolver and Pepper, The White Album is a great album.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stay away from the US pressing. Buy UK 's for a clean sound.
I bought and returned the US version of this and "Revolver". Both were scratchy and dull sounding. The UK pressings sounded MUCH cleaner, though still on the dull side. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars What I expected
Seems to me that for remastered should have improved bass but doesn't seem to be the case. Otherwise quite all right.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential Third Album In A Beatles Collection.
This would have been better without Revolution 9 and a few others. Still a classic, but it lacks the magic of Magical Mystery Tour and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Read more

I had the original white album many years ago but it got lost and I found myself missing the actual last music of THE BEATLES (in my mind anyway! It is wonderful to have it back!
