The Best Thing in Pop Since Sgt Pepper

By Derek Jewell | 8 December 1968 | Source: The Sunday Times

“Of course the new Beatles double LP is the best thing in pop since Sgt Pepper. Their sounds, for those open in ear and mind, should long ago have established their supremacy… They have misses, but there aren’t many. It’s a world map of contemporary music, drawn with unique flair. Musically, there is beauty, horror surprise, chaos, order. And that is the world; and that is what The Beatles are about. Created by, creating for, their age.”
