    Have I entered a Steve Hoffman Forums Bizarro World? How can anyone in their right mind say with a straight face that The Beatles' worst album is "Sgt. Pepper" or their worst song is the heavy version of "Revolution"?

    They were definitely capable of putting out some bad songs throughout their career but come on, there is such a bounty of good music that completely overshadows the blah.

    Worst still means "Least Favorite". Doesn't mean you think it's bad, necessarily. Just that you like the others more.

    I would agree about "perfect" if - they would have included Paperback Writer and Rain on Revolver and removed For No One, and I Want To Tell You. That would have been a stronger album than even Pepper. IMO of course.
