I know I should get all three but the amount of points I have disagree, I only have enough for one.

Which is more enjoyable?

    Well, if you're only buying it for a party and you don't plan on buying all the albums eventually, I suggest just cherry-picking the more popular songs.

    But if you want a full album for the party, then I guess Sgt. Pepper's because it's more popular.

    I plan to use them after as well, just wondering which one would be best.

    I also plan on getting all of them so cherry picking isn't an option

    Abbey Road imo... the medley is worth all the money.

    I would rank the albums in this order for a party:

    Rubber Soul > Abbey Road > Sgt. Peppers

    Rubber Soul has the best dreamscapes out of all the albums in my opinion and Sgt. Peppers isn't that fun to play from an instrumental standpoint. Songs like Fixing a Hole and She's Leaving Home are boring on guitar and drums.

    For a more party like atmosphere, more upbeat songs from Rubber Soul such as You Won't See Me, Wait, and Nowhere Man are a blast to play. Then there are the really famous songs that everyone will recognize like In My Life and Michelle.

    Abbey Road only really has four tracks. You only get three songs that are not part of the Abbey Road Medley. Oh! Darling is probably the best one compared to Maxwell's Silver Hammer and Because. Playing the medley snippets are nowhere near as fun as playing it as a whole. Assuming you'll have a lot of people at your party, a maximum of six people can play for sixteen minutes, so it forces everyone else to watch.

    I say Rubber Soul.

    What he said... i just picked Abbey Road cus its the most fun to play on drums and on most instruments... but yes... maybe for a party the abbey road medley won't work as great...Sgt. Peppers is my least favorite album out of the 3.

    If you have some friends who want to harmonize, I'd recommend Abbey Road. 'Because' was incredibly fun to sing in harmony.

    That is the only album I have, and as someone else said, if you have a lot of people at your party, you'll want to get another album most likely. I'd recommend Abbey Road only if you can have everyone playing at once. It is the only album I've purchased so far though... :o

    :confused:

    Fixing a Hole is VERY fun on drums and She's Leaving Home is a decent guitar chart, and both are a blast to sing

    Rubber Soul, because the songs are most fun and the songs on it that are download only are more well known than the Sgt. Pepper and Abbey Road download only songs. Sgt. Pepper would come in second, because the trippy and random things would entertain people.

    I guess it also depends to how much your guests like the Beatles and which period of the band they prefer.

    I think Rubber Soul is the most upbeat of the albums and might work better for a party, though. But I'm biased - it is my favorite Beatles album.
