For over 50 years, The Beatles album Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band was seen as the culmination of popular music, the height to which all other albums should aspire. It synthesised the previous 50 years of culture, filtered it through a carnival lens, and produced the greatest album of all time. So said the critics, so said the writers, so said the public, and so it became. But as the tides of popular culture keep turning, Sgt. Pepper continues to fall out of favour. Not out of the canon, per se, but out of its place as the undisputed top of the musical mountain. It is becomingly increasingly rare to find those who might consider it the greatest album of all time, or the greatest Beatles album, or occasionally even the greatest album of 1967.

Sgt. Pepper is still, for the record, a tremendous album. But it’s a tremendous Paul McCartney album. The man who spearheaded the LP’s creation and concept had the most to say in its contents, while the rest of his bandmates decided to go along for the ride. John Lennon was inspired enough to create transcendent pieces like ‘Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds’, but found the overall work to be fairly tepid and has diminished his own contributions like ‘Good Morning Good Morning‘. Ringo Starr was so bored during recordings that he learned to play chess in the studio. But perhaps the least taken with Sgt. Pepper, as a whole, was George Harrison.
