Abbey Road ()

by

The last Beatles album to be recorded (although Let It Be was the last to be released), Abbey Road was a fitting swan song for the group, echoing some of the faux-conceptual forms of Sgt. Pepper's, but featuring stronger compositions and more rock-oriented ensemble work. The group was still pushing forward in all facets of its art, whether devising some of the greatest harmonies to be heard on any rock record (especially on "Because"), constructing a medley of songs/vignettes that covered much of side two, adding subtle touches of Moog synthesizer, or crafting furious guitar-heavy rock ("The End," "I Want You (She's So Heavy)," "Come Together"). George Harrison also blossomed into a major songwriter, contributing the buoyant "Here Comes the Sun" and the supremely melodic ballad "Something," the latter of which became the first Harrison-penned Beatles hit. Whether Abbey Road is the Beatles' best work is debatable, but it's certainly the most immaculately produced (with the possible exception of Sgt. Pepper's) and most tightly constructed. ~ Richie Unterberger, Rovi Hide synopsis

The Pageturner

You HAVE To Have This Beatles Fans!

by The Pageturner on Nov 19, 2008

This superb cd is something every Beatles fan should have in his or her collection. It consists of awesome songs and has some of the Beatles greatest works. This album is full of cleverness, especially near the end with songs transitioning into other songs. It seems to be almost more rock oriented, but then there is still much variety. You can listen to one of Harrison's most popular songs "Something" and relax or snuggle up with your honey while "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" plays in the background. This cd contains goofy songs like "Polythene Pam" and "Mean Mr. Mustard", yet sweet ones like "Here Comes The Sun" (if that's on there) and "Golden Slumbers" (a soothing lullaby). Many of the songs have a great beat and tunes that remain in your head for days. They are catchy and if you find a song that you dislike, I assure you, you'll grow to like it (I'm beginning to soften up to "Yellow Submarine").
