Revolver is the seventh of the Beatles British albums. It marked a drastic evolution of the Beatles style of music. With what can only be described as brilliant songs bordering and surpassing the realms of fantasy. There are lots of statements in this record, with tracks about loneliness; Eleanor Rigby, and taxation; Taxman. The fantasy songs include yellow Submarine.
The artwork for the cover of revolver is done by Klaus Voormann. Though the Beatles had made the decision to concentrate on recording new influential music and stop touring after Rubber Soul it was three weeks after the release of Revolver that the Beatles performed their last gig; when the complexity of the music made it virtually impossible to play live.
Revolver is very much influenced by the avant-garde art scene happening in the United Kingdom and the American hippy scene of the mid sixties. The Beatles use of psychedelic drugs is prevalent in many of the lyrics of the songs on revolver. George Harrison’s love of Indian music and guru culture is also prevalent on the album especially on tracks like Love you to and tomorrow never knows.
There were so many new ideas on the revolver album, such as backward loops, and variety of song topics, that it can only be described as one of the best albums of all time and should be a part of any record collectors collection; even if they are not into the Beatles.
