Transcript of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Research Presentation)

I chose Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band for my proposal for this presentation. It is in the genres of psychedelic rock and baroque pop. This album was released in 1967 and was the point of The Beatles change from performing music to elaborating extreme music, also known as psychedelic rock. They started using more overdubs making it difficult to perform. This album is the conversion point in music history. Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band is the number 1 album greatest album of all time, voted by the Rolling Stone, by the greatest artists of all time, The Beatles. Turning Point in Music History These critics all agreed that Sgt. Pepper's is the turning point in music.

"Sweeping, all encompassing embrace of music." -Stephen T. Erlewine, allmusic.com This critic disagreed that Sgt. Pepper's is the best album of all time.
"Certainly not worthy of the 'greatest album of all time' status..." -Seth Putman, sputnickmusic.com "A Day in the Life" Third Common Thread These critics all agreed that "A Day in the Life" is the greatest song on the album.
"No other song in the world can give me chills like {this one}." -IGN Music, ign.com
'Give me John Lennon's portion of {this song} any day." -Jason Petros, consequenceofsound.com
"The greatest song of all time, a revolutionary epic..." -J. Ponton, sputnickmusic.com
"The first three tracks, and the last, are bonified classics." -Seth Putman, sputnickmusic.com These critics all disagreed that "A Day in the Life" is the greatest song on the album, but "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds.
"The title track to this album is 'Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds." Neil McCormick, telegraph.co.uk
"'Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds' remains one of the touchstones of British psychedelia." Stephen T. Erlewine, allmusic.com I will argue that Sgt. Pepper's is the the most influential album of all time. Turning Point in Music I agree with the majority of the critics on this. Sgt. Pepper was the major turning point in music.
It wasn't the first attempt. In fact this wasn't the first by the Beatles. Sgt. Pepper brought out the studio version of music. No longer was writing for performance prefered. The Greatest Album of All Time. I agree with the majority of critics for this section. Although some may say that the only reason it got this title was because it was The Beatles, I contend that The Beatles were in the right place in the right time. Because of their popularity the album showed the world this new style. It was being used before, but this one erupted. A Day in the Life I agreed with the majority, but can also agree with the minority. "A Day in the Life" is a wonder and amazing creation, but "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" was the major influence. The Rollingstone said that "A Day in the Life" was the best and many argue. I say that no song on the album is better than another. This idea of mine is argued by all of the critics, but without having the others what would be the point of the album. It is layed out perfectly so that no song sounds worse that another. Conclusion My presentation was on The Beatles 'Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club' band and how it changed the path of music and recieved the titles for The Greatest Album of All Time, The Turning Point in Modern Music, and The Most Epic Ending to an Album ("A Day in the Life"). My position is that this album is the most influential album of all time by the layout and difference in music. By: Matt Huff
