Rubber Soul is the sixth studio album by the Beatles, it was released in December 1965, and is often referred to as a folk rock album, particularly in its North American configuration, incorporating a mix of pop, soul and folk musical styles. The album has been recognized by music critics as an album that opened up the possibilities of pop music in terms of lyrical and musical scope, and as a key work in the creation of styles such as psychedelia and progressive rock. It appears regularly on critics' best-album lists, Rolling Stone ranked it fifth on the 2012 list "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time", in 2000, it was voted at number 34 in the third edition of Colin Larkin's book “All Time Top 1000 Albums”.
The Beatles seventh album, Revolver, released in August 1966, was the Beatles' final recording project before their retirement as live performers and marked the group's most overt use of studio technology to date, building on the advances of Rubber Soul. It has since become regarded as one of the greatest and most innovative albums in the history of popular music, with recognition centered on its range of musical styles, diverse sounds, and lyrical content. Revolver has surpassed Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band in many critics' estimation as the Beatles' best album, it was ranked first in the 1998 and 2000 editions of Colin Larkin's book “All Time Top 1000 Albums” and third in the 2003 and 2012 editions of Rolling Stone's list of the "500 Greatest Albums of All Time.
