It's always been one of my least favorite albums.  I can't wait to hear it in mono because I've heard from several people that it's a revelatory experience.

Ah CINECAST!, mono is what I was supposed to look for? People were flipping shit over stereo from what I read. Damn it. I have some work to do tomorrow/space to clear.

I believe people are flipping shit over both.

Well damn, what's the difference?

You'll hear some things in the mono that you don't in the stereo.  Fades, vocals, some guitar line, or drum track you can't hear in the stereo mix, etc.  McCartney says the mono mixes are superior and those are the ones The Beatles approved and the sessions that they were a part of.

Okay, I'll just forsake the stereo ones and go with Mono then.

The last two albums are in stereo only.

I had to go with A Day In The Life, just for all the interesting things they do in it and the real coming together of two great songwriters at their prime.

But I just love listening to the first two tracks on this album so much.  And Lovely Rita always has me singing along for some reason.

Gonna have to listen to it again before I vote. Leaning towards Lucy or Mr Kite.
I voted for Mr. Kite 'cause it's insane and it needed some help.

"A Day in the Life" edges out Joe Cocker's cover of "With a Little Help From My Friends".

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Strawberry Fields Forever.  Seriously, though, A Day in the Life.

But Cocker's verson of "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window" is even better
