The lights are on
*Disclaimer- This thread should be for people who enjoy The Beatles... obviously. Though I mean who doesn't? Anyway, there are a few of you who don't and for this thread I wish to keep it those fans, of which there are many. *
First off, hello. I am quite impressed by the new GameInformer, so much so that it might become one of my most-trafficked sites.
Anyway, I'm (at least in my opinion) a relatively mature 16-year old. Some of the shitty music that comes out these days truly disgusts me, though there is some great stuff. My point is, even at my lesser years and limited life experience, the fact that my parents raised me on The Beatles is one of the greatest debts I hold to them (ya know, besides life, nurture, education) and next to Zeppelin, they are certainly probably my favorite band of all time.
So, last night I discovered the new GameInformer site, at the knowledge that Phil Kollar works here now, and started to listen to the Abbey Road remaster I'd picked up recently. It sounds fantastic. Browsing the site for the first time having never been a huge GI fan and only picking up issues here and there (though always enjoying them), I made my way through the album yet again. And I realized, it really is the perfect album to me. From Come Together all the way to the Golden Slumbers-Carry That Weight-The End trio of songs, the album does not have a bad song on it. They truly went out on the top of their game (especially George who gave me my two favorite tracks on it). It's certainly one of my favorite albums of all time, and my clear favorite one of The Beatles.
What is yours?

Abbey Road for me, definitely. It's just so amazing.
White Album comes in a very close second, followed by Sgt. Peppers.
I love Sgt. Pepper, but I'd have to say White Album mostly because of Dangermouses masterpiece, The Grey Album.
Revolver was the first Beatles Album I had ever herd, and has remained my favorite Beatles album, as well as one of my all time favorite albums since then.
This is definitely a tough question. It's very close for me, it's between Rubber Soul and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. I'll take Rubber Soul as plenty of others have picked Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Rubber Soul was the big artistic leap in their career, they shifted from Beatlemania pop music to more experimental music, more adult in its subject matter.
Revolver is also a fantastic album and is arguably their best, as is The Beatles(The White Album).
Mine is rubber soul but that is because I haven't listened to many of the others as much as I have Rubber Soul.
I would have to go with Abbey Road i grew up listening to it as i kid growing up and its just a really good album.
