Ed Masley of The Arizona Republic took a stab at compiling the ten best Beatles solo albums. Here are the results.
Inevitably, such a list is going to be greeted with contrary opinions (just look at the comments), and I myself would make some major changes to what Masley arrived at. Band on the Run should be much closer to the top; Ringo probably deserves to be included; and several of those Wings' albums just don't belong. And, respectfully, I must also disagree with this comment from Masley's summary of Imagine: "... 'How Do You Sleep?' takes the shine off his (John's) halo with a vicious swipe at Paul McCartney." Yes, that song was cheap and hateful, but John never had a halo to sully in the first place. Not even close, in fact.
