Whats with all The Beatles hate?!?! This is preposterous! Sgt. PEPPER is one of the greatest albums of our time, end of discussion. And yes this is the part where Raven man says that i'm laughably incorrect or something to that extent, oh well, so be it.. To each, his own

Incredibly average songwriters and performers whose fame was purely a product of the times. Luckiest motherfuckers on the planet.

Not a huge Beatles fan, but you're saying that Lennon and McCartney were average songwriters?
It was a different time back then.

They were. Everything was simple and boring; they barely even bothered writing lyrics. McCartney certainly got better, but never really all that great.

Obviously I've not listened to everything they ever did, but I've heard a good portion of it, and I've never heard anything remotely interesting or clever. Most of it is only even catchy in a children's-TV-show-theme kind of way.

Similar thought process. I think there could have been any number of bands who could have came an made it big. You are only as good as your competition. And what competition was there back then? Compared to what was going on they were earth shattering.... But compared to what?

Precisely. They were a product of the times and are now revered only because they're "supposed" to be.

I enjoy the Beatles argument with guys in their late 50s who live in the was, not in the now. It's fun & sad @ the same time.
