    Why do critics consider Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band to be the best Beatles' album?

    I have always liked this album, but I definitely don't agree with most critics when they call it the best.  I much more prefer Abbey Road or even Rubber Soul.

    I've never heard that.  I've always heard that the White Album, was considered the best.  It's all nonsense, of course, all the LPs are great, they all have some great stuff and they all have some, not so great.

      Not that Rolling Stone Magazine is the "end all, be all" of music critiquing, but they ranked Sgt. Pepper as the #1 album of all time.  Rubber Soul, Revolver, and The White Album were also in their Top 10.

    Cause the majority of people.... even critics...... seem to suffer from actually believing many of the myths about the band that seem float about out there in the world.... which is why I wrote "Six Myths About The Beatles That Are Complete Bull"

    Sgt. Pepper's LHCB might be the Beatle's most famous album, but I've never heard it as a top choice of the critics. The one I most commonly hear as the top choice is Revolver.

    A critic is someone who gets paid to share their opinions. Helpful, I suppose, to those who cannot decide things for themselves, but personally, I've never listened to nor read them.

    If it is truly considered the best, I'd say because it was the first album put out when the Beatles made the transition from being a pop, put out as many records as you can, as fast as you can, band, to becoming actual musical artists that had lyrical meanings, that usually told some sort of story. It brought out a personality of the Beatles that no one realized existed. They were then doing what they wanted instead of what the screaming public demanded.

    Sgt. Pepper was the Beatles first album after they decided to stop touring.  Thus they became a strictly studio band and the creativity shows in Sgt. Pepper.  The songs tell stories, most of which have nothing to do with the album's title character.  Personally, my favorite song on the album is She's Leaving Home, but it's a great record from beginning to end.
