This is the big one, what many music critics and think pieces call the most groundbreaking album of all time, let alone the most groundbreaking album by the already prolific Beatles. While the Fab Four had been experimenting in the studio for some time, now, without the exhausting obligations of near-constant touring and public appearances, they were free to capitalize on everything they had learned so far to push popular music as far as it could go and produce their masterpiece. Listen as Sam and Jake go track-by-track on the landmark 1967 album that finally won over the critics and made the world realize The Beatles were more than a simple pop act when many had already written the ensemble off as irrelevant. A gamechanger of an album and a super-sized special episode to go along with it.
