Zappa cover is better, cause it calls the beatles out for continuing in the wake of pauls death for the sake of profits.
>>
>>61613672
>>61613720
also, if there were no Frank Zappa, there would be no Sgt. Pepper. The beatles too direct inspiration from Zappa, Paul even referred to Sgt. Pepper as the Beatles version of Freak Out, so in a way Zappa is the progenitor here.

>>61613754
Why do people say "If there was no X, there'd be no Y". It's asinine. Obviously The Beatles would have still released an album and I imagine it wouldn't be much different to Pepper.

if there was no jesus christ, you wouldn't be here
>>
>>61613754
wait, weren't they inspired to make it by Pet Sounds, also Freak Out isn't a direct parody of anything
>>
I think Magical Mystery Tour had a better cover.
>>
>>61613330
Easy.
>>
>>61613817
But that's the whole argument people have for sgt pepper's, that without it no good popular music would exist and that's why it's relevant. The worse part is Scaruffi was right other people were being more innovative at the time and the beatles just copied them.
>>
>>
>>61613817
that's completely inaccurate. You can't just assume whatever alternate history suits you. my assertion is built on the parameters of historical reality and you are dismissing it by taking a figure of speech strictly literally like an autist. There is no reason to discount their own admitted influence from Zappa. Paul literally said he considered it the Beatles Freak Out.

>>61613869
they were also inspired by that, but Zappa is the where the concept album idea came from. Rubber Soul, Pet Sounds etc, pioneered the concept of an album, but Zappa went ahead of that and made the idea of a concept album, which was an idea that captivated the Beatle imagination. In sort, this was the beginnings of progressive rock. Abby Road is also basically prog rock also. If they had kept going, it would have gone full prog and people would commonly recognize it as such. As it is I guess it's proto prog.
>>
>>61613916
The second half of Freak Out is awesome, but the first half could disappear forever for all i care (minus Brain Police).
People were being more innovative, but The Beatles fine-tuned those innovations into something very palatable. Nothing about the album is pretentious, which is a pretty great accomplishment considering the sounds they used on Mister Kite or Day in the Life
>>
>>61613981
>Taking a figure of speech literally like an autist
>If there was no Zappa there'd be no Beatles

How else was it meant to be taken? Metaphorically?

So what if Paul compared it to Zappa, it doesn't really share much with anything Zappa had written. He might have been an inspiration but you can't make some offhand statement that therefore Zappa is better or that Pepper is somehow less valid because of that.

>>61613330
Magical Mystery Tour has a better album cover and the US version is a better album than Sgt Pepper

yes it was, it was a reference to the Zappa album we have been talking about and has been posted. The insult was very appropriate. The fact you don't know the reference speaks to your being unqualified to engage in music discussion here.

Both Sgt Peppers and White Album covers are some of the best album covers ever. Can't think of any other remarkable examples.

Brain Police is one of my favorite songs ever, but all the songs from the album are great.
Also, pretentious as a critique is something that needs to stop.
