Krista, since you kind of started me on this “Magical Mystery Tour” I would really love to see your list...

I just bumped a post from my first thread, in which @heckmanm kindly tabulated my "favorites" based on placement in my song list.  It showed Revolver as first, which it was and is.  Surprisingly, it had Help! as a clear #2 over Rubber Soul.  I thought Rubber Soul had been second.  This is just a mathematical calculation, though, and doesn't really reflect fervency of my beliefs on a song, album flow, album mix, and all the little things that make one preferred over another.

It also had three older albums below Yellow Submarine, which is definitely not how I "feel" about those.  

I've never done a list, mentally or otherwise, by album, and I don't want to:lol:  It would just send me into a months-long evaluation process again!

Here's the calculation chart pasted from that post (sorry I lost his pretty formatting):

2. A Hard Day's Night

3. Help

4. Abbey Road

5. Revolver

6. Rubber Soul

7. Please Please Me

8. Let It Be

9. Beatles For Sale

10. With The Beatles

11. White Album

12. Yellow Submarine

I didn't provide any additional info because your info was so complete, but I will answer any questions on rankings that anyone has.
