'Revolver' judged best rock album

Associated Press

"Revolver," which bridged the Beatles’ moptop era with their experimental years in the studio, was judged the best album in rock ’n’ roll history by experts in a VH1 poll.

The Beatles accounted for five of the top 11 on VH1’s list of the 100 greatest albums.

VH1 polled more than 500 journalists, music executives and artists.

"Revolver," which was released in 1966, included "Eleanor Rigby," "She Said She Said," "Taxman," "Here, There and Everywhere" and "Tomorrow Never Knows."

"Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band" (No. 10), "Rubber Soul" (No. 6), "Abbey Road" (No. 8) and "The Beatles," also known as the White album (No. 11), were the other Beatles discs on the list.

Nirvana’s 1991 "Nevermind," which launched the grunge rock era, was No. 2 on the list, followed by the Beach Boys’ 1966 "Pet Sounds."

Two artists who died under tragic circumstances rounded out the top 5: Marvin Gaye’s socially conscious "What’s Going On" from 1971 and the Jimi Hendrix Experience’s "Are You Experienced?" from 1967.
