- Ensemble Dark Horse: For a long time, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was viewed as the Beatles' artistic peak, and it certainly had the biggest social impact at the time of release. However, many Fab Four fans have claimed that Revolver is the better album at least since 1974, when Roy Carr & Tony Tyler first published the quote featured on the main page.note In 1996, Beatlefan magazine published "a 30th anniversary salute" to Revolver with the provocative title "Their Best Album? If You Say Sgt. Pepper, Maybe You'd Better Think Again!" In his book about the LP, Robert Rodriguez calls it "a dark horse within the Beatles' oeuvre".
