Of course everyone is free and totally correct to say they much prefer listening to The Stones, Bowie or the bloody Smurfs than The Beatles. That’s totally valid. Music taste is subjective and all in the ear of the beholder. I’m not even talking about record sales, even though The Beatles top that chart too.

But if we are talking solely about music as an art from and trying to gage song writing ability, recording techniques and influence their music had on the world and generations of people, then there’s only one winner and it ain’t the Smurfs, Level 42 or whatever grabs your fancy.
I think you are trying to claim certainty or victory where there can be none. It’s like arguing that a strawberry is the most important fruit. You probably couldn’t get an answer on how you judge what the most important fruit is, let alone agree on which is best. And you would have to ask why bother?

Just be satisfied that the Beatles are likely in most of the western world’s top ten answers to that question (certainly if they are over 40) and always number 1 in your house Maybe not so much if they are 13 though. I do think that it’s amazing quite how big the impact was when they were only together for 10 years (1960-70). They certainly burnt brightly.

You may find the Stones music more appealing to listen to - fair enough; but even after their 60 years they never got close to writing the catalogue of diverse, creative, innovative and ground breaking music The Beatles did in their 8 years. Go and tell any musician that the Stones wrote better songs and watch them fall about laughing.

On the White Album: yes, could’ve shaved it down by about ten tracks but in a way, the scattergun approach of different tastes, sounds and ideas kind of makes it unique and therefore a great album. You’ve got to remember that they’d been out to Rishikesh, meditating with the Maharishi. They had loads of time on their hands, coupled with the act of meditation that gave the old creative juices a spring clean, and they had a songwriting explosion. The album always seems to me like a slide show of what you did on your holidays.
I saw a video blog recently where the guy cut down the White Album to just two sides. Maybe Classic Album Review but I will post a link if I find it again.

The same happened when my Mum and Dad had a party,
Cleaning up the following day they discovered that someone had pinched one half of the album and they were left with just the other half and the album sleeve

I think the White Album is probably my favourite Beatles album, it's got the best songs. The blue hits album is pretty decent as well. None of their albums are perfect, they're not exactly an album band, imo. Maybe because they were too soon onto the whole album thing, dunno.

It’s not a disagreement, you’re just objectively wrong I posted the definition there for you. Of course there is, and has been “intensive publicity or promotion” of one of the most popular albums by the most popular band of all time. Quite why you’re trying to split hairs over this, I do not understand.

in what way am i objectively wrong...? as for trying to split hairs suggest you comprehend the difference between hype and opinion. Something you have failed to do.

if you had said it was overrated i wouldn't have had to pick you up on it. LOL

They’re not mutually exclusive. Public opinion is what creates hype.

Countless people enjoy the Beatles - Their work garners “publicity and promotion.” Ergo, one of their most popular albums, and many people’s favourite, the White Album, has hype around it. More hype than I believe is merited, therefore I “never got it.”

What a pointless ‘debate.’ Feel free to retort and disagree with the dictionary again, but I’ll have to bow out of this one.

One thing with The Beatles ... I grew up in the late sixties/early seventies. I don't remember The Beatles ever being 'cool' in the way that Marc Bolan/David Bowie or even the older Kinks/Stones or other British bands were. I tend to think of them as songwriters rather than performers or an act.

If you take a world view, the fact is songs like Yesterday, Eleanor Rigby, Yellow Submarine, When I"m Sixty Four, Lucy In the Sky, Hey Jude, Let It Be can be heard sung all over the world by different people with different cultures. That's surely one of the proofs of a good song. I'm not sure any other songwriters can match them for that sort of global and inter-generational appeal.

The Music Forum is (generally) a far nicer place than other parts of the BBS but I think this is a ruddy terrible record with Joe Cocker channeling his inner Uncle Peter.
