    Rubber Soul is the sixth studio album by the English rock group The Beatles, released in December 1965. Produced by George Martin, Rubber Soul had been recorded in just over four weeks to make the Christmas market. Unlike the five albums that preceded it, Rubber Soul was the first Beatles album recorded during a specific period, the sessions not rushed off in between either tour dates or during filming projects. After this, every Beatles album would be made without the need to pay attention to other commitments. The album was described as a major artistic achievement, attaining widespread critical and commercial success, with reviewers taking note of The Beatles developing musical vision.

    Another fantastic review Garrett. Definitely one of my favorite Beatles albums. I may give it a spin in a few days. I'll make a whole "Beatles" day out of it.

    Re: Rubber Soul

    The one Beatles album I would take over any of them given just one choice. I love "In My Life" as it will always remind me of my first serious relationship. Steven Tyler once commented that it was "the perfect pop album" to which I wholeheartedly agree... I read that Lennon was taken aback when Dylan told him he thought that the Beatles NEVER wrote a song of meaning. It made him pen "Nowhere Man" as a result which was on the U.K. release along with "Drive My Car".
