Probably Should Have Been One LP.
But who cares — it’s still so good!
Rolling Stone’s Ranking: #10/100
A favorite pastime of music critics, amateur and professional alike, is to pontificate how The Beatles could have done it better. I mean, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band might be the best album of all-time, but didn’t you find the chord progression on Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds a little lacking? Wasn’t Let it Be a total let down with only 6 or 7 amazing songs?
The gripe with The White Album is its length. Clocking in at over a hour and half, there is so much material. I’ve had this album on rotation since October, and I finally feel comfortable writing about it. Yes, there is a lot to sift through, some of it meh, but much of it is amazing — so who cares.
