Revolution 9. Shame Honey Pie seems to be on it's way out, reminded me strongly of a George Formby track.
I don’t hate either Honey Pie nearly as much as everyone else here seems to.

Revolution 9 isn’t my favorite song, but I give it some credit for effort. Good Night just is a plain old bad song.

My exact position. I don't really get the honey pie hate and I have to say, as long as we're talking about being musically adventurous, rev 9 is really worth some credit to the beatles. Love that sound collage stuff that would get used to great effect in other underground scenes.

This side is awful.
There's a tiny, tiny hopeful part of me that says you guys are running a Kaufmanesque long con on the board

Disagree. The only really unbearable song is good night. White Album, overall, is so interesting and fun even the patchier stuff is usually an enjoyable listen.

I’m gonna split the difference: probably my least favorite side overall, but I also agree with the overall assessment. The white album is patchy as hell, but a lot of those patchy moments would be the highlight of a lesser band’s career.
