The WHITE ALBUM
What I consider to be the greatest rock album of all time, the so-called "White Album" (actually entitled The Beatles) dropped on this day in 1968. Shortly after its release, the New York Times called the record "boring beyond belief". It (the White Album, that is) met with much critical derision in the first few weeks after its release. Years later, the Times, Rolling Stone, NME, AllMusic, and numerous other music magazines said it was one of the ten best records ever made. I guess to this day it is my unchallenged favorite.
