Template:Citation needed In the main guitar riff to " If I Needed Someone ", the Beatles returned the compliment paid to them earlier in by the Byrds, whose jangly guitar-based sound McGuinn had sourced from Harrison's playing the previous year. Template:Listen Lyrically, the album represents a major progression in the Beatles' work. Although a smattering of earlier Beatles songs had expressed romantic doubt and negativity, the songs on Rubber Soul represent a pronounced development in sophistication, thoughtfulness and ambiguity.
Template:Sfn John Lennon was encouraged to address wider-ranging issues than before through Dylan's influence, and also after a discussion with BBC journalist Kenneth Allsop about whether, as in Lennon's book A Spaniard in the Workshis lyrics were conceived as merely "another form of nonsense rhyming".
In particular, the relationships between the sexes moved from simpler boy-girl love songs to more nuanced and negative portrayals. Songs such as " Nowhere Man " and Harrison's "Think for Yourself" explored subject matter that had nothing to do with romance at all. Template:Citation needed. Template:Sfn During the sessions, the Beatles typically focused on fine-tuning the musical arrangement for each song — an approach that reflected the growing division between the band as a live act and their ambitions as recording artists.
Template:Sfn Martin later described Rubber Soul as "the first album to present a new, growing Beatles to the world", Template:Sfn adding: "For the first time we began to think of albums as art on their own, as complete entities. While the band were forced to work to a tight deadline to ensure the album was completed in time for a pre-Christmas release, Template:Sfn they were also in the unfamiliar position of being able to dedicate themselves solely to a recording project, without the interruption of any touring, filming or radio engagements.
Template:Sfn Lennon recalled that Rubber Soul was the first album on which the Beatles were in complete creative control, with enough studio time to develop and refine new sound ideas. Before the recording sessions, McCartney was given a new bass guitar, a solid-body Rickenbackerwhich produced a fuller sound than his hollow-body Hofner. Template:Sfn Harrison used a Fender Stratocaster for the first time, most notably in his lead guitar part on "Nowhere Man".
Template:Sfn The variety in guitar tones throughout the album was also aided by Harrison and Lennon's use of caposparticularly in the high-register parts on "If I Needed Someone" and "Girl". The Beatles completed " Wait " for the album, having taped the song's rhythm track during the sessions for Help! Template:Sfn To mimic the sound of a harpsichord on "In My Life", after Lennon had suggested he play something "like Bach", Martin recorded the piano solo with the tape running at half-speed.
When played back at normal speed during the mixdown, the sped-up sound gave the illusion of a harpsichord. Template:Sfn Template:Sfn. InHarrison said that Rubber Soul was his favourite Beatles album, adding: "we certainly knew we were making a good album. We did spend more time on it and tried new things. But the most important thing about it was that we were suddenly hearing sounds that we weren't able to hear before. Template:Sfn Template:Refn. Until very late in their career, the "primary" version of the Beatles' albums was always the monophonic mix.
According to Beatles historian Bruce SpizerMartin and the EMI engineers devoted most of their time and attention to the mono mixdowns, and generally regarded stereo as a gimmick. The band were not usually present for the stereo mixing sessions. Template:Sfn The total time wasnearly seven minutes shorter than the British version, Rubber Soul. Through the mix of predominantly acoustic-based songs from the two releases, according to author Kenneth WomackCapitol's Rubber Soul "takes on a decidedly folk-ish orientation".
Template:Sfn The stereo mixes used by Capitol contained two false starts at the beginning of "I'm Looking Through You", Template:Sfn while "The Word" also differed from the UK version due to the double-tracking of Lennon's lead vocal, the addition of an extra falsetto harmony and the panning treatment given to one of the percussion parts over the song's instrumental break.
Rubber Soul was the group's first release not to feature their name on the cover, Template:Sfn an uncommon tactic in The "stretched" effect of the cover photo came about after photographer Bob Freeman had taken some pictures of the group wearing suede leather jackets at Lennon's house. Freeman showed the photos by projecting them onto an album-sized piece of cardboard to simulate how they would appear on an album cover.
The unusual Rubber Soul album cover came to be when the slide card fell slightly backwards, elongating the projected image of the photograph and stretching it. Excited by the effect, they shouted, "Ah! Can we have that? Can you do it like that? McCartney conceived the album's title after overhearing a musician's description of Mick Jagger 's singing style as " plastic soul ". Lennon confirmed this in a interview, stating: "That was Paul's title Just a pun. Template:Sfn Its advance orders ofalmost equalled the total sales for the new single and were announced by the Daily Mirror Template:'s show business reporter as marking a new record for pre-release orders for an LP.
Template:Sfn The release took place there on 6 December. On the day of the album's release, the Beatles performed at the Odeon Cinema in Glasgow, Template:Sfn marking the start of what would be their final UK tour.
Rubber Soul is also very violent; he attempts to kill a pickpocket by breaking his back and remorselessly eats a dog under the eyes of its master with his Stand. In order to grow bigger, he did not hesitate to eat even bugs. In spite of this, he is very cowardly, giving away the Rubber Soul of his allies in order to escape Jotaro's wrath and having a strong fear of being hit or hurt in general. Rubber Soul's Stand is Yellow Temperance; a sticky, rubbery mass bound to and encasing his body which consumes any other organic substance it comes in contact with.
The Stand defends him from all forms of brute force and allows him to effectively impersonate others. It is a Stand all people can see and touch.
The stand represents the Tarot Card, Temperance W. Temperance is a warning that indicates one must exercise calmness and balance or suffer defeat. Jotaro's first instinct when fighting Rubber Soul is to behave erratically, which puts him at a disadvantage. Only when he accepts Yellow Temperance is a fearsome Stand and plans his next move does he win. He mimics Joseph Joestar 's "Secret technique" and overall fighting style when doing this, as Joseph is known for being calm and composed even in the most desperate situations.
Jotaro begins to be suspicious of "Kakyoin"'s strange behavior following his attack on a pickpocket and his use of words. After lying that he bought the tickets for India, Jotaro tricks "Kakyoin" to the cable cars where he punches him for his sudden attempt to push him off the building.
The resulting punch sends Rubber Soul into a cable car as he discards his disguise while revealing that Jotaro has a fragment of Yellow Temperance on his finger.
Faced with the danger of being devoured by the Stand, Jotaro jumps out of the cable car, Rubber Soul gloating that he has no need to chase him. Rubber Soul gets off and enters a cable car in the guise of Rubber Soul woman just to see Jotaro's futile attempts to freeze the Stand fragment.
Rubber Soul reveals himself and gloats of his Stand's invincibility while it consumes a dog that happened to be in the cable car. Jotaro is forced to use his grandfather's final secret technique of running away by punching a hole in the bottom of the cable car and dragging Rubber Soul with him into the water below.
As Rubber Soul is forced to lower his Stand's guard to breathe, Jotaro gives the now powerless Stand user a broken nose and jaw before interrogating him about the remaining Rubber Soul.
