A couple of quotes from a great essayist, Geoffrey O'Brien:

On the Beatles:
Beyond all echoes of yesterday's mythologized excitement, the records--whether "The Night Before" or "Drive My Car" or "I'm Only Sleeping" or any of the dozens of others--lose nothing of a beauty so singular it might almost be called underrated. (Sonata for Jukebox, p. 157)
and on music in general:
"Music is like having an extra room." (Sonata for Jukebox, p. 76)
