There's nothing more guaranteed to generate loads of comments than a post called Five Songs Where The Beatles...Well...Sucked and Something Else went there. For the record I'd call it 1 great, 2 good, 1 OK and 1 lousy song, but that doesn't have the same ring. Can you guess which is which?
On the back of the news that Abbey Road was the best selling album of vinyl album of 2011, Ultimate Classic Rock conducted a poll of Best Beatle Album. The poll seems to be a weird mashup of UK and US releases but here's the results

Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band 15.53%
Rubber Soul 13.88%

Let It Be 3.03%
Magical Mystery Tour 2.42%
