All Together Now

"From the outset, [The Beatles] embodied the notion that an individual can realize his own identity in a community, even when it consists of four utterly different - even contradictory - parts. Their view of the world, as seen through their records, affirms a sense of perspective no matter what they happen to be singing about: whether it's a broken heart or some shattered illusion, the individual slant is always framed in a group context." (Tim Riley, Tell Me Why, pp. 18-19)
