Weekend reading

This one has been sitting idle in my repository of Fab links for too long: Stereogum's list of The Beatles' albums from worst to best. As with most undertakings of this kind - and especially those that touch on The Beatles' inviolable discography - there's voluminous room for disagreement. Revolver at #3? "Two of Us" is nothing more than a "minor ditty"? Did I really see the words "I've Got a Feeling" and "slay" in the same sentence? You get the picture. But all told, the list makes for a quality, enjoyable read. It's obvious that Chris DeVille - easily one of my favorite music scribes going today - loves and gets The Beatles.
