I have never understood the dislike out there for The White album. I really enjoy it and always have. Could possibly be my fave album of theirs

I like the White album a lot.
Sometimes Iím full of anger and grieving, so far away from believing that any sun will reappear

Is that a Scottish thing? Every single Beatles fan I know irl (a LOT of people) considers the White Album and Revolver to be their 2 best albums. Of course, the order varies from person to person, hahahahaha.

The irony around the white album being, the Beatles were a dreadful band yet their best record got the most flack.

I had no idea people didn't like this record. I'm honestly not even very familiar with it myself... what are common criticisms?

The White Album is ok but I prefer Abbey Road. I prefer Abbey Road to Revolver also.

Abbey Road has a more modern sound.  Just imagine the music the Beatles could have made had they carried on throughout the 1970s.

Lot of filler on The White Album, which is actually my main complaint about the Beatles. For such a great band their albums had a lot of filler.

It's considered a sign of white supremacy.
