The Beatles Albums: Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band

By March 17, 2012

Follow me on:

The first rock album to define a specific moment in time, Sgt. Pepper captured its moment so perfectly that it became a generational totem, enjoying two decades of critical consensus that it was the greatest album of all time. Now that public opinion about everything is forever fractured, however, this psych-pop masterwork still resides near or at the top of those critical lists, and it's because the qualities it represents -- optimism, brotherhood, insight, and joy -- have become even more precious over the following years. So how did they pull off such a feat? Read all about the Sgt. Pepper album here, including its history and trivia, and info about the famous cover as well as all 13 songs!
