The Best Beatles Albums

List Criteria: Feel free to add any Beatles albums I guess, even things like 'Love' or 'Anthology' or whatever.

After becoming the greatest and most popular band in the world the Beatles decided that they would rather be artists than performers. Especially after they stopped touring, 'the album' became the focus of their creative energy and the central channel through which the listener experienced the band. Thus the Beatles made their albums into works of art instead of 'just collections of singles' (which makes the number of Beatles albums on the list of the best albums of all time a lot less surprising). The Beatles' albums are their true legacy, their true gift to posterity, their true claim to immortality. But which one is best?

Abbey Road or Sgt. Pepper's? Revolver or Rubber Soul? With the Beatles or Meet the Beatles or The Beatles? It's time to finally decide which Beatles album is the greatest and this time you, the fans, get the vote! And once you've voted for and ranked all the albums, you can get really detailed and vote for the best Beatles songs ever. Long live Beatlemania!

If you're curious what kind of acts the Beatles would have been up against if they hadn't stopped touring, check out the greatest live bands of all time.
