Rubber Soul isn’t their best, but it’s up there one of their most solid efforts
Top album, but obviously rushed. Wait and What Goes On are weak songs and Run for Your Life though I like the tune doesn't sit well in 2021 lyrically.
Lennon was brilliant on the record though and You Won't See Me is an underrated gem.
Who say's it's not ? love it
Run For Your Life does not bother me but I can understand why it is an issue for some. One thing that does makes the song feel "wrong" is those catchy, feel good Beatle harmonies. It's like listening to an ABBA song about a serial killer.
I easily prefer the Lennon songs on 'Rubber Soul' over his contributions to 'Revolver'. But the Mccartney songs on 'Revolver' might be his high point. Either way, I prefer 'Help!'. In fact it might be my favourite Beatles album.
Rubber Soul is amazing. It is so unbelievable good... but revolver and especially white album are so much more amazing and unbelievable better...
I LOVE it! It’s certainly in my top 3 Beatles records. But they did so many great albums, it’s up against some pretty stiff competition.
Rubber Soul US Stereo is my favorite album of all time
OK so first of all RELAX. Personally I agree with everything you just screamed. I was commenting on the GENERAL OPINION of others.
I don't like Caroline.
You're joking ?!
My wife's favourite Beatles' album is Rubber Soul.
It's so fine, It's sunshine
Run for Your Life is justifiably maligned
What Goes On is a little underrated. The lyrics and tone fit well with the album and the country tinge really pares well with the folkier songs on the album.
The rest of the album is mostly phenomenal
I rate it neck and neck with Revolver as their best album.
I have a feeling nostalgia is a big factor for the people who consider it their absolute best. Perhaps it was the first album they purchased back when it was new, or the first they remember hearing at a pivotal moment in their lives?
And it is a wonderful album - but it sort of feels more like a transition from Help! to Revolver rather than a standalone masterpiece like, say, The White Album or Abbey Road. Probably has something to do with it being fairly rushed as part of their relentless tour/album schedule. They didn't yet have the luxury of unlimited studio time and free reign.
