I love the Beatles, but I always thought Pepper and at least half of the White Album and one side of Abbey Road was a bit trite. I mean, Careful with That Axe Eugene vs Rocky Raccoon, Astronomy Domine vs Martha My Love?
I am a major Floyd fan, even if I also love Rubber Soul, Yesterday and Today, Meet the Beatles, Beatles '65, one half of Abbey Road, Revolver, Meet the Beatles, Beatles for Sale, Let It Be, Hard Day's Night, Help!. Floyd's Meddle, Saucerful of Secrets, Umma Gooma, Obscured by Clouds, Atom Heart Mother, Wish You Were Here, Lapse of Reason, Dark Side, Division Bell all stand up to the Beatles easily. I own at least 80% of that list on vinyl, and all of it on MP3.
Beatles are my sentimental favorites and Floyd is what I listen to at night.
