The Beatles Albums: The Beatles a/k/a "The White Album"

By February 13, 2013

Follow me on:

It was deeply personal, yet rocked harder than any other of the group's albums; it was darkly cynical and emotionally vulnerable; it was by turns bitter and hopeful; it fragmented the band even as it demanded they perform as one; it had no name, cover, or theme yet somehow encapsulated everything the Beatles were capable of. It was the "White Album," and while its sheer scope and length inspire heated discussions to this day, it can't be denied that it was one of the group's landmark works, an indulgent magnum opus that captured four increasingly incompatible personalities yet somehow made the result sound like one long movement. Read all about the history and recording of the Beatles' "White Album" here in my latest fact sheet.
