The most influential band ever? The very essence of "progress" in rock music is charted with The Beatles musical journey. In early 1966, the Fab Four left Beatlemania and three minute pop songs for the inner space of the psychedelic era and the comforts of Abbey Road Studios. While "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" is ground zero for art rock, "Revolver" is perhaps the most immediate, "The White Album" the enigmatic, and "Abbey Road" of course, the swan song.
