Rubber Soul songs Product Information
This reissue of RUBBER SOUL has been digitally re-mastered. It comes packaged with replicated original U.K. album art, an expanded booklet containing original and newly written liner notes, and rare photos. Limited quantities of the CD are embedded with a brief documentary film about the album. Though some might argue that the Beatles' unprecedented evolution from British Invasion pin-ups to pop music visionaries began with BEATLES FOR SALE, RUBBER SOUL is without a doubt the first album to definitively put the Fab Four in the running for Greatest Band Ever. Virtually every aspect of the Liverpool quartet's incredibly diverse sound is in evidence here: the dark, irony-filled Dylanism ("Norwegian Wood," "Nowhere Man"), pop perfection ("In My Life"), the passion for classic tin pan alley balladry ("Girl," "Michelle"), and the love of good 'ol rock & roll music ("Drive My Car"). Peppered with nasty fuzz bass, exotic sitar, cartoonishly sped-up piano that sounds like harpsichord, and elements of country, Motown, and classical music, the album reveals a creative scope and willingness to experiment so revolutionary it can now only be termed "Beatlesque." Though the Fabs don't go as far out on a limb here as on the more overtly experimental REVOLVER, RUBBER SOUL is perhaps the Beatles' most finely crafted and accessible work, and consequently many fans' and critics' favorite.

Characteristically, they achieved a new musical sophistication and a greater thematic depth without sacrificing a whit of pop appeal..." Q (6/00, p. 78) - Ranked #21 in Q's "100 Greatest British Albums" - "... Opened the floodgates to adventure, sophistication and subtlety.... Great vocal performances abound and may well represent pop's sartorial zenith."

The group's most musically varied album yet, and probably their best along with the subsequent "Revolver"!

||An objective look at this classic album.|
It’s no secret that I’m a Beatles fanatic. I love “Rubber Soul. ” It continues much along the same lines as “Help!” – brilliant songwriting, but it didn’t usher in as big a change as some like to think.
