The White Album was the Beatles' first and only [[note]]Not counting their compilation albums[[/note]] double album. The songs feature a lot of variation [[GenreRoulette in style]] and [[MoodWhiplash mood]]. Overall the record sounds almost like a compilation record featuring the band members as solo artists instead of a unity. Indeed, it was a TroubledProduction, complete with Music/RingoStarr leaving the band for a while (Music/PaulMcCartney took over on drums for "Back in the USSR" and "Dear Prudence", and Music/JohnLennon and Music/GeorgeHarrison also recorded drum tracks for "Back In The USSR"). From this album on Music/YokoOno made herself present next to John in the studio and this certainly caused even more tensions, seeing that the band had always recorded with them four alone.

* CarefulWithThatAxe: While absent from the mono version of the album, "Helter Skelter" famously [[StopAndGo returns after seeming to fade out]] with Ringo screaming in anger "I'VE GOT BLISTERS ON MY FINGERS!" (given they recorded 18 takes of the song, no one can blame him).
