The title track is essential! The reprise is redundant Smiley

In the context of the album, I love it. I'd love it even more if the album stuck to its concept better.

"Getting Better" despite Paul's songs being clearly the best here.

Short notice: the cat you see to the left is the best. Not counting your indoor cat who might have habit sitting at your left side when you post in SmileySmile.

We find ourselves at what many believe is the "Toppermost of the Poppermost".


Quote
Sgt. Pepper is regarded by musicologists as an early concept album that advanced the use of extended form in popular music while continuing the artistic maturation seen on the Beatles' preceding releases. It has been described as one of the first art rock LPs, aiding the development of progressive rock, and credited with marking the beginning of the Album Era. An important work of British psychedelia, the album incorporates a range of stylistic influences, including vaudeville, circus, music hall, avant-garde, and Western and Indian classical music. In 2003, the Library of Congress placed Sgt. Pepper in the National Recording Registry, honouring the work as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".[1] That same year, Rolling Stone magazine ranked it number one in its list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time". As of 2011, it has sold more than 32 million copies worldwide, making it one of the best-selling albums in history. Professor Kevin J. Dettmar, writing in the Oxford Encyclopedia of British Literature, described it as "the most important and influential rock and roll album ever recorded"

Vote for your LEAST FAVORITE TRACK!!!!

Tally on June 15

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
With A Little Help From My Friends
Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds
Fixing A Hole
She's Leaving Home
Being For The Benefit of Mr. Kite
A Day In The Life

Round#1 Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (reprise) May 30
Round#2 Lovely Rita June 1
Round#3 Good Morning Good Morning June 5
Round#4 Within You Without You June 8
Round#5 When I'm Sixty-Four June 11
Round#6 Getting Better June 13

I have totally reevaluated this album. This didn't make things easier. It actually made it harder. The next three weakest tracks are, IMO, "Getting Better" "Fixing A Hole" and "Within You and Without You". My vote in RED, fourth week in a row.

I can't believe you guys voted Getting Better off this early. It has some of Lennon's most honest lyrics.
