POLL: Which 14-songs would you want on a single-disc White Album?

A number of users on here believe that John, Paul, George, Ringo, and Martin's peak was their self-titled 1968 album, often referred to as "The White Album." I believe it's one of their best, and would probably rank it their second or third best were it not for the songs on it that I don't believe are up to their standards.

Author Comments: 

Are the Rubber Soul rankings fairly unusual? It seemed people always liked "You Won't See Me" more than I do.

Sorry but I didn't include "Rain."

Author Comments: 

Only albums that move three or more spots will be recorded in my comments below.

Moved down: Abbey Road (-5)
Added to list: Loveless

This update probably had the most placement changes yet. Hosianna Mantra, White Light/White Heat, and Rumours all moved up significantly, after re-listening made me realize they were masterpieces. Also note OK Computer and Are You Experienced. Revolver is a little lower this time, because it turns out after having heard "Good Day Sunshine" on the radio, it's less impressive than I thought.
Inclusions: Nation of Millions, Black Saint and the Sinner Lady, Thriller

Top 2014 Films

  • 1) The Raid 2 **** - Unexpectedly sprawling after the claustrophobic original, The Raid 2 trades a twisty apartment building for a labyrinthine plot of feuding crime lords. Any tension lost with that enclosed setting is more than met by a deep undercover plot and some of the most exciting martial arts scenes ever filmed.

Best Dubstep Tracks

  1. 1. Digital Mystikz- Haunted
  2. This classic, produced in 2006, was crafted at the height of Dubstep's golden age. While very minimal and simple in its nature, Haunted became an instant hit after it's release on the DMZ label. The tracks perfectly encapsulates dubstep as a genre, with an emphasis on a grungy sliced up bassline and a syncopated 2-step drum pattern. While the duo of Coki and Mala have produced several magnificent tracks, Haunted remains a favorite among many.
  3. 2.
