1968’s The White Album was a drastic shift from 1967’s Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Instead of being a cohesive concept album, The White Album is more like a compilation album featuring songs written by each member of The Beatles individually. In an interview with Penthouse, Lennon said Paul McCartney didn’t love the album because it was so individualized. However, Lennon considers it his favorite because it has the best music.
