8 The Inner Light
Bloody hell. That one manages to be even more solipsistic, lazy and patronising then anything Lennon wrote even at his most self-absorbed. My second most hated Beatles track, that one. Terrible, addle-headed hippy garbage.

Strange to hear the Rubber Soul hate from Purves; I love that album, but save my bile for Revolver. It used to be seen as underrated compared to Sergeant Peppers, but there's barely a less than incredible track on the latter.

As for Within You Without You, I just think it's amazingly out there, without for a moment being anything less than utterly compelling. Chunky tablas; swooping cellos, but above all the lyrics, which are so sincere yet fucking bonkers that it qualifies it as some sort of avant garde landmark. I really feel those lyrics about "people who gain the world and lose their soul... are you one of them?". He sounds like Yabby You talking about Fire and Brimstone.

McCartney vs Lennon, ying and yang, isn't it? I love Lennon's breathtaking bile on numbers 14 and 15 in my list; fully the equal of Dylan on Positively Fourth Street, but with weirder lyrics. Nonetheless, McCartney gets better and better as you get older- The Long And Winding Road is a very decent soul ballad.

Anyway, bloody great band.

Wrong. He sounds like Venessa Feltz.

His voice in general is rather rubbish it is true. I Want To Tell You would be in that list if it wasn't for him sounding like a nervous school kid. JUST TELL HER FOR GODS SAKE!!!

One day at MVE we had a day where we played all the Beatles albums in reverse; that way, rather than sensing George's song writing blossoming like a flower, it's more like it slowly curls up like a hibernating hedgehog.

Anyway, I just find Rubber Soul to be full of dirges. They've lost the tight discipline of the beat years and haven't really discovered the extravagant scope and experimentation of the cocaine/acid years. It's the sound of a band throwing a ton of shit at the wall and hoping some of it sticks. It sounds as tired as they look on the cover of Beatles For Sale.

I've heard it described as the album where the Beatles discovered pot and Dylan, but that's just bollocks as they discovered pot ages ago and had Dylan in their pockets in a minimum of five songs off the previous album.

Anyway, I'm generally quite disposed to depressive music, but the Beatles are a big exception to that for some reason. I should by rights like A Day In The Life more than anything else, but I just can't deny the incredible sauciness and verve of Lovely Rita.

Ah, now, I reckon you've got "I want to tell you" all wrong. I think it captures the stop-start nature of ones mind in an acid trip better than any other lyric ever. It's not some piece of faux-naive rubbish where he's playing the part of a blushing virgin like Lennon in "If I Fell". What it is is that he has something going on in his head but he's too fucked to formulate and express it. A proper acid moment.

After "Here Comes The Sun" and "It's All Too Much" it's the best thing Harrison ever wrote, I reckon.

Ah, now, I'm with you on Lovely Rita. That one-two-three of "Lovely Rita - Good Morning Good Morning - Sgt Pepper's (reprise)" blows me away and elevates the soul like nothing else. And then "A Day In The Life" is the perfect counterpoint.

An incredible bit of sequencing, that.

What better than Long Long Long? I like that interpretation of it a lot, though; of course She Says She Says is the same thing I guess.

Perhaps you're right about Rubber Soul; they wanted it to be soul of some sort, of course, but they'd already kind of achieved that without thinking about it on Hard Day's Night, with things like Things We Said Today and You Can't Do That.

The Wire did this quite good feature once, about underrated but vitally important albums, and they put A Hard Day's Night on there, saying that it basically started garage rock. You can imagine kids in Ohio listening to Hard Day's Night, with them hollering "when I get home to you, I know the things that you do, will make me feel alright" and thinking yeah, that's what my teenage life is like.
