Best of 1966

The second year in my journey, 1966, was a significant step up from ’65. More bands started to write their own songs instead of just covering Dylan or the classics, and true musical diversity was beginning to manifest. Garage Rock held the throne for the most populated genre, and a lot of the music from this year was very upbeat. Still, it was a year comprised mostly of very, very strong singles but overall weaker album releases. Another reason that I don’t hold this year in such high esteem as others do is because I don’t like Revolver; an album that is so often attributed with being the “best ever.” Overall year rating: 3/5.
