This is, no hyperbole, the greatest album of all time. It's the last one the Beatles made all together, and they almost tore each other apart doing so. There are tracks where Lennon doesn't appear, tracks where McCartney doesn't feature as prominently as he would have previously, and tracks where you can almost feel the frustration. In spite of it all, what they put together was incredible and, as always, greater than the sum of its parts. Here Comes the Sun is George Harrison's best work. I Want You (She's So Heavy) is a typical complex contribution from John. Paul took "some crap John wrote in India" and weaved it together with some of his own material to make the masterpiece that is the Abbey Road medley. Ringo...well, Octopus's Garden is pretty good, as far as Ringo's stuff goes. He did finally get a solo, which is nice. The album is so packed that I haven't even mentioned several other greats: Come Together, Something, and Because are all-timers. Best track: the medley

Aujourd'hui aurait du être un jour historique. En effet, en cette matinée du 20 juillet 2021 le générateur dévoilait son chouchou, la coqueluche de l'audimat générateurien, Abbey Road des Beatles. Ce review aurait pu permettre de dire tout le bien que je pense de cet album classique, mais malheureusement aujourd'hui l'essentiel n'est pas là. En effet, aujourd'hui, robpaupière a definitivement passé un cap dans le mauvais goût et la provocation, il a franchi la ligne irreversible qui va me pousser a devoir lui regler son compte. Pour vous remettre un peu dans le contexte, rob est mon "camarade" d'écoute. Nous avons effectué nos classes au sein de notre établissement scolaire ensemble, et dès son plus jeune âge, rob démontrait de sacrées dispositions a la musique de merde. En effet, son lecteur mp3 de l'epoque laissait échapper des sonorités nauséabondes de James Arthur, auquel rob vouait un culte total, malgré mon incompréhension la plus totale. Un beau jour de mars, je faisait suscintement mention de ce générateur à rob, qui fut de suite alerté et s'incrusta de force dans cette aventure, me forçant, et ce malgré mon consentement, à creer un groupe afin que nous puissions écouter les mêmes albums en simultané. C'est alors que les véritables problèmes débutèrent. Chaque jour depuis mars, je subis les commentaires musicaux catastrophiques de rob. Il les étale absolument partout: du Cruisaders au petit déjeuner, du Sonic Youth au gouter, du Finley Quaye pour terminer la journée. C'est une ribambelle de groupes tous plus moyens/mauvais les uns que les autres que rob prend en admiration, et dont il me rabache les mérites chaque jour que dieu fait. Mais alors même que cette situation est déjà extremement difficile a vivre vous en conviendrez, aujourd'hui marque un tournant. En effet, en plus de cet album des Beatles, que comme vous l'avez compris nous ne commenteront pas aujourd'hui, nous avions un album de retardà rattraper: Freak Out!, de la bande de l'ignoble Frank Zappa. Cet album absolument affreux - que j'ai déjà ouvertement critiqué dans ma désormais célèbre review dont on vient regulierement me parler (merci à vous pour cela) - a été hautement apprécié par l'effarant robtunnel. Il apprecie en effet son côté "experimental". Il est de notoriété public que rob cherche depuis toujours à se donner un genre de connaisseur un peu snob qui ne prend pas avec moi, mais considérer 15mn de cris d'animaux et de bruits de cuisine comme de la musique experimentale, c'est un peu fort de Roquefort. En plus de cela, alors que je commencais a liberer un flot d'insultes à l'egard de rob pour cette opinion desastreuse, comme beaucoup trop souvent, j'eu le malheur de faire reference a une artiste que j'apprecie enormement, la déesse Lana del Rey, regrettant sa non presence dans la liste au profit de tels albums de merde (je fais ici bien reference a l'album de la troupe de l'handicapé Frank Zappa). Rob, en fin non connaisseur musical, me retorquera que Lana del Rey n'a pas sa place dans cette liste des 1001, et surtout pas a la place du zoo de Zappa. C'en était trop pour moi, et j'ai donc décidé de menacer physiquement rob, que j'affornterai à mon retour en France dans un combat a mains nues. Je suis plutôt serein, rob ayant le physique de ses idées, il ne ferait pas de mal a une mouche, hormis peut etre en lui presentant sa playlist Spotify. Je vous tiendrai au courant du déroulé de comba très prochainement, à bientôt chers lecteurs.

L'album est excellent mais je n'ai pas envie de m'éterniser là-dessus. Non, ce dont j'ai envie de parler aujourd'hui, c'est le sentiment de pitié que j'éprouve envers l'enfance de mon compagnon d'écoute que vous commencez à connaître ; je veux bien entendu parler du dénommé ltrapeze. Voyez-vous, pendant que mes parents jouaient très régulièrement les Beatles dans mon salon, ltrapeze n'avait pas le droit au même traitement. Pour lui, l'ambiance au domcile familiale était quelque peu différente. Tantôt ce sont les reprises de Michal sur le plateau de la Star Ac 3 qui inondaient l'espace sonores de la maison, tantôt le single Premier Love de Tony Parker que ses parents avaient l'habitude de laisser tourner en boucle tout l'après-midi. Pour le petit ltrapeze, interdiction formelle de montrer tout signe d'intérêt pour une chanson qui n'entrait pas dans le champ des artistes précités. Un événement survenu en 2009 aurait pourtant pu changer la donne. Alors que la famille était réunie autour d'un poulet au caramel préparé par un traiteur thaïlandais du bas de la rue et que le poste radio chantait ♫ on s'est connus on était gosses t'étais mon premier love, bien avant le basket, mon premier titre, toujours ensemble, à l'epoque on était croques l'un de l'autre♫, ltrapeze se leva discrètement et appuya sur un bouton de ce même poste, faisant passer celui-ci de l'option CD à l'option FM. La famille se tut en cœur et ses parents cessèrent de frapper leurs cuisses pour marquer le rythme. Tous les regards se dirigeaient bientôt vers ltrapeze qui affichait un visage des plus crispés. La radio nasilla soudain ♫ come together right now over me ♫. L'atmosphère était irrespirable. "Retouche le bouton" lança alors le père Trapeze à son fils. Ce dernier maintint l'expression crispée qu'il arborait depuis maintenant un moment. "Oui, retouche le bouton s'il te plaît" intervint la mère Trapeze à son même fils. Ce dernier s'exécuta et le poste s'écria soudain ♫ on était jeunes on était fous à qui la faute on n'était rien sans l'autre ♫. La vie avait repris son cours.

The fact that this album has a Wikipedia page for EACH song speaks to how insanely important and good it is. I don’t think I need to wax poetic about it. One of the best albums with some of the best individual songs of all time. In short: it slaps.

All my Beatles knowledge came from various compilations over the years, so I never really knew which songs came from what albums. I should've guessed from the way people spoke on the album, but I was surprised by how so many of the Beatles bangers were on this one. || I thought about finding a way to justify less than a 5 because sometimes I'm sick of the Beatles always getting heaped praise, but like, this Album is still gold all the way through, and was astronomical in size, scope, and influence. || Not sure if the remastered mix makes it more clear, or if I never noticed before, but I loved the bass throughout, and little adjustments in the background like synthesizers and other embellishments I never noticed before! Really amplified songs, without making it too crowded.

Classic record, one of my favorite, if not favorite Beatles album. Something and Come Together, I want you, Here Comes The Sun are bonafide classics. Side B, while I don't really love any of the big long song individually, as a whole it's super cohesive and fun, they flow very well. Really nail what they were trying to channel on Sgt. Pepper

ok. this is one of my all time favorite albums the fact it was the first one is honestly hilarious. first of all, starting with come together???? ok being real, not my Favorite beatles song ever, but what a song to start with. and then straight into SOMETHING. LIKE GOD. it’s literally one of the like best love songs ever written, like it never fails to make me feel all warm n fuzzy. maxwells silver hammer, such an underrated song. like it’s a lil stupid but it’s just a fun lil tune. oh darling fun lil song, and OCTUPUS’S GARDEN. ok ringo is my favorite beatle, and this song is so underrated. he literally was just like (british accent)”i wanna sing abt an octopus lads” and everyone was just like “ok whatever ringo” and GOOD FOR HIM!! she’s so heavy is a song that just makes me feel like cool as hell when i listen to it. like it’s repetitive sure but the instrumentals are sooooo good. here comes the sun is just classic, i don’t even have to say anything abt her. ok, controversial, because is not really my fave, and i honestly wish the A side of this album finished with shes so heavy instead. ok. B side medley. literally some of the best 16 minutes of music ever. ok the beginning of you never give me your money always gives me chills, esp the like bass riffs. sun king is very chill, honestly used to not care for it much but now its a highlight for me. mean mr mustard and polythene pam are more of those songs that on the surface r just fun lil tunes. ok the transition between the end of polythene pam and she came in through the bathroom window is just. MWAH. not to mention that that song is so good too. now on to my literal favorite beatles song(s) ever. Golden Slumbers/Carry that Weight. words do not even describe how much i love these two songs. everything about golden slumbers has made me cry an embarrassing amount of times. and carry that weight is just one of those like. screaming catharsis songs. they aren’t complete without each other, and as a pair they are in my top 5 songs of all time. the end is literally like classic: “and in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make” like that like is SOOO fucking good. and ringos drum solo! u go thomas the train. her majesty is so good, i get why it’s so short ofc but i wish it were more than like 30 seconds bc i’ve always really loved it. imo, this is literally one of the best albums every made. like i know it’s very VERY boomer, but it literally is classic and i feel like the first time listening to it is a whole experience.

One of the greatest albums ever recorded. Starts out with my all time favorite Beatles tune - “Come Together” and then followed by a bunch of really good tracks. Some rock, some mesmerize, some pop and all four of the boys contributed some of their best songwriting to this disc: (George- Here Comes the Sun, and Something; Ringo - Octopuses Garden; Paul - tracks 7-9; John - the aforementioned Come Together). 5 Stars!

Unassailable. A masterpiece of a swan song from one of the most innovative pop acts of all time. Both Georges really shine on this record, but Paul's downright magical medley is the starring attraction. There's something really appealing about just how coherent this record is in spite of the obvious reflection of each member's unique style. I'm using this opportunity to revisit the 2019 remaster and there's a lot of wonderful detail I'm hearing on these mixes. For example, the little acoustic stereo hits during the Something bridge (starting at 1:15). I'm not sure there's a lot I can say that hasn't already been said about this record, but it's that rare one that deserves all the praise it gets. Favourite songs: Something, Oh! Darling, Here Comes the Sun, Because, You Never Give Me Your Money, Golden Slumbers, Her Majesty

An intricate and effortless masterpiece, the last round-up for the Beatles. The album is split into two distinct sections, with side one holding the strange, the silly, the rock'n'roll heavy, while side two contains a cycle of songs that is some of the band's strongest arrangements. Credit where credit is due, George Martin made some of these short tracks into something grand and so repeatable. Fav Tracks: Golden Slumbers, Carry That Weight, She Came in Through the Bathroom Window, Something, Come Together.

"Let's get together and do one more like we used to" McCartney to George Martin Driven by McCartney and Martin this album brought all 5 of them in the studio one more time at the peak of their skills to record an album that to this day is hard to compete with. From the vocal harmonies to the well placed guitars, the bass guitar lines that sing to Ringo's amazing use of tom Tom's and high hat to the studio wizardry of GM there is not a note, a flourish, a hand clap, that is not perfectly placed whether intentional or not. It is the 5 of them in the zone one last time. This album is a masterpiece that other groups can only envy to this day. Each Beatle contributes in special ways to expand the richness and depth of each song; Paul's bass on Something is integral to its greatness, the guitar duel on Carry that Weight played live from the floor is amazing. The masterpiece that is the melody on side two is possibly the finest piece of music ever written in pop music. It is mind blowing! This album shows their mastery in the studio. I have been listening to this album for over 50 years and it's still fresh, warm, emotional, energetic. I am in from the first note (I dare you not to sing along!). From the day it first came out to studying its impact in my English class to listening to the remastered version, its brilliance continues to have an impact on me. Favorites: Here Comes the Sun, Oh Darling, Because and at the top of the list McCartney's masterpiece the Medley. Also the entirety of She Came in Through the Bathroom Window and the melody within the melody, You Never Give Me Your Money. A tour de force.

An incredible achievement- that a band breaking-up can produce an album of such intensity, intrigue and curiosity is simply stunning. This is no songs-by-numbers album but an attempt to push themselves creatively, musically, aesthetically - this album solidifies The Beatles’ status as art. Endlessly rewarding.

This album is testament to the genius of Sir George Martin. You know how when folks in the UK want to honor someone the knight them and call them "sir"? In the USA we should honor them by adding the middle name F-ing. This guy right here would be Sir George F-ing Martin.

The Beatles final album. Abbey Road uses a "less is more" approach to production throughout, giving "Come Together" a controlled intensity while the raw sound of Paul's voice on "Oh! Darling" is one of the album's highlights. The sound of a whole band working together flawlessly is heard through this. One of their most consistent albums. 5/5

La història és coneguda: banda en plena descomposició, temes més individuals que de grup, medley final per poder treure alguna cosa profitable de les gravacions... Malgrat tot, aquí viuen cançons com 'Here Comes the Sun' i 'Something', cúspides de Harrison com a compositor; 'Come Together', 'Carry That Weight', 'Maxwell's Silver Hammer', el dur 'I Want You' o, perquè no, 'Octopus's Garden'... tot un tour de force per acabar de manera brillant la trajectòria de la banda més important del segle XX

Don't know how I called myself a Beatles fan without having given this one a thorough listen. For some reason I thought of this one as disjoint from the rest of their discography, but there's still the narrative whimsy of classic Beatles interspersed throughout. The tension inherent in the creation of this LP is clear as the track lengths thin towards the end, but even these snippets carry a wealth of life and delight.

(Octopuses Garden, I Want You (She's So Heavy)) and never afraid to be wacky and creative with songs like Maxwell's Silver Hammer and Polythene Pam. I really like how Golden Slumbers and Carry That Weight carry the album to the end. And "Something" has to be the best love song I have ever heard. The Beatles' last recorded album carries them out with a bang! a concrete 5

So I think the front half of the album starts off so strong with Come Together and Something, but then with Maxwell and Octopus it's a take back to older Beatles.

I simply can't say anything about this record that hasn't be said before, it's one of the most iconic albums of all time. It's the magnus opus of The Beatle's career, and the concourse of sounds that come from this album are so spectacular. It starts with one of the most iconic, rocking songs in their catalogue and ends with a grandiose medley that is so rich is lyricism and composition that it's almost cinematic. George Harrison and George Martin are the rock stars of this album. If you can't get into this album, The Beatles are not meant for you. Favorite Song: Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End Least Favorite: Her Majesty (I know it's a hidden track, but it should have just ended cleanly)

Easy 5* - favourite album of all time, and the first record I knew I had to own on vinyl. Harrison's contributions obviously excel here, but all four Beatles are on fine form instrumentally and vocally (did their harmonies and backing vocals ever sound so gorgeous?) The Side 2 "medley" (contrary to Lennon's dismissive comments) is one of my favourite sequences of music by any artist. Fave Track: You Never Give Me Your Money Least Fave Track: At a stretch... Maxwell (but I still love it, sorry Paul)

Disclaimer: While I like the Beatles, I also think they are the most overrated band in history. Not to say they weren't among the greatest ever... but the boomer obsession with this band can be a bit much. Having said that, this is my favorite Beatles record. Side A is good but side B is just incredible from "You Never Give Me Your Money" to the end. They definitely went out with a bang on this one (the last record they recorded together)

Well, having never owned a Beatles album, surprised myself by giving this 5/5 - but it's got Come Together (could be 1 year old never mind 50), Golden Slumbers and loads of great tracks i'm not familiar with like Maxwell's Golden Hammer. Plus I live near Abbey Road so

Welp, first album I receive from this very interesting website, and I get as my first album to listen to is one I have listend to numerous times and agree whole heartedly that this is one of the Greatest Albums of All Time, just Abbey Road, the last Beatles album recorded. My short thoughts about the songs on the album: Come Together: If this is supposed to be a drug song, it really feels like a trip that hits you, getting ready to take you on a journey to a world where nothing and everything makes sense at the same time, with that fuckin killer guitar by George i think? Something: This song really grew on me, because I didn't really get myself into the talent that is George Harrison, and this song just struck me as basic lovey dovey song when i first discovered it in Freshman year of high school. Listening to it several times later and thinking of the women that used to make me feel, this song captured the emotions perfectly, and it's also just a vibe Maxwell's Silver Hammer: REALLY? They hated this song?? I can understand the fucking pain in Paul's Percise Direction on the song taking a toll on everybody, this still shows that the art you imagine in your head doesn't have to be perfectly how you imagined it to still be fucking awesome! It may be the inner edge-lord in me that considers this on the top 5 best off this album, but it's like Tarantino's who analogy with Joker (2019), it seduces you into enjoying the villain's presence. Oh! Darling: I always remember the title of this song but never the actual song, but it's instrumentals are really something. It's a more manic Something now that i think about it... so John made this! His vocals are on point and the classic harmonization by the end... wait is this Paul or John... Im stupid. Octopus's Garden: Top 5 off the album, more like on MY TOP 5 FAVORITE BEATLES SONG OF ALL TIME. This song deserves more love, RINGO deserves more love, and I'm glad they are getting more each year. this is just a song that makes me so fucking happy. I Want You (She So Heavy): Another top 5 entry on both lists omg, 2 in a row! This song gives me the weird feeling of thinking of a girl and other things when you're supposed to pay attention to Sunday Mass. This is probably Paul's absolute best fucking Bass work in his career Here Comes The Sun: c'mon, no words are needed. It's like waking up at the top floor of your apartment as the sun is rising above your home and shining the world. All your worries are blinded by the pure bliss radiating from this moment in your life, happening right now... also from the gamma rays Because: I should've listened to this song more, this is an incredible song. Y'know those ascended memes, this makes me feel like that, so outer worldly filled with bibilical like power. You never gave me your money: what a different tone from the last song but it kinda matches with the notes, but this feels like snapping back to reality from the last song and making something happen. Sun King: Sun King yes, which sounds like full moon, midnight by the campfire. THIS GUITAR THO. Mean Mr. Mustard: now it's the next day and now we're people watching. Kinda feels like this album is about living in the moment in life :) (also this song sounds as groovy as Paul's future work) Polythene Pam: Good transition, You think Mr Mustard is somethin, well you should see... this woman She Came in through the Bathroom window: You fell in love with a Girl but the drugs start kicking in again ~my hands are getting tired so i'm just going to write down the image these song's give me Golden Slumbers: this is like Part 2 to Sun King, now another night, reflecting what we learned and need to learn. Basically a reflection of the past. Carry the Weight: Know that reflecting on the Past will only darken your life even more and letting go and feeling free is the world's greatest luxury The End: One of the best endings to anything, it's like the final song at the end of a series you spent a long time with Her Majesty: End Credits scene, Love confession overall, good album, I wish i could type more aboutt his album but my hands hurt, I ALREADY KNOW ABOUT THIS, BEST ALBUM Her Majesty:

A masterpiece. Probably my favourite Beatles album! It opens with two of the greatest Beatles songs ever. (Come Together / Something). Here Comes The Sun / I Want You are tucked in the middle keeping the album consistent all the way through. For me though - the highlight is the finale which is essentially a gigantic eight song medley. I’m a huge sucker for this type of storytelling device whether spread out on an album or contained in one song. (The Wall, NOFX’s The Decline) I love a good mid-song switch up and this album has some of the best (blame it on my A.D.D.) The trio of songs at the end are some of the best transitions in rock and roll. And the call back to the first song in the medley is freaking awesome! Fave Tracks: “Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End” “Something” “Oh Darling”

A day after getting Rumours by Fleetwood Mac I get Abbey Road. Two albums I didn't need to listen to again to rank as 5 star albums. Just what I needed to wash the taste of that shitty Lenny Kravitz album out of my mouth This album captures a massive range of moods, but somehow makes them all fit. More importantly, just just keeps getting better as it goes. And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make. The Beatles always had an incredible way to state the profound with the simplest words 5/5

Probably the Beatles most well known album but not necessarily their best. Still great in its own regard. It has 17 songs and still short of an hour. It’s a refined, simply curated album.

The songs flow exceptionally well throughout and makes the album an easy listen and yet there’s still depth to the songs. 8.8/10

So good. The Beatles are used as an example of how 10,000 hours of practice can give you mastery of a form. I think I listened to The Beatles, mostly this album for 10,000 hours in our basement when I was a child, so I've mastered listening to them, and I've really got it down to an artform. A lot of the album is quite childish, but so am I, and so was I when I listened to it most. I love the range of songs, the lyrics, and that you can have a song along to most of these.

My favorite Beatles album. Something turned out to be one of their best songs and John / Paul didn't write it. But the perfection in this album is the side 2 medley. They pulled unfinished songs together to fill an album when they were clearly not getting along and had no interest in working together anymore, that is where the talent shines.

The first Beatles album I bought was the "Blue" record (1967-1970), this along with it's companion ("Red" 1962-1966) are the perfect entry level compilation records to introduce new Beatles fans to most of their hits. To really give you an idea of the range of the band's music, you must seek out most of their studio albums which are very good to brilliant, as sometimes it's the deeper cuts that deserve some attention. I've owned a copy of Abbey Road since the late-70's and it still gets plays on my turntable. Since I've heard the popular tracks so much (Come Together, Something, Here Comes The Sun), I have been known to skip those tracks for the rest of the record. It's these "secondary" tracks that give Abbey Road so much depth in quality. In fact, this has probably the best side 2 of any record I've heard highlighted by the medley that concludes the album. So good! Undoubtedly, this is the Beatles masterpiece!

For my mind, this is the best of Beatles, especially side two. I could do without Octopus' Garden and Maxwell's Silver Hammer, but the rest of the album is solid. The guitar work on "I Want You" is fascinating. On a side note, this YouTube version is a little frustrating because there is silence between all the tracks on side two. They should be connected together.

Ah les Beatles! Je crois que c'est mon préféré avec Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. Cet album est l'aboutissement réussi des explorations des albums précédents. Dans le processus créatif, je trouve vraiment intéressant le fait que la durée de I Want You a été calculé par rapport au média qu'est le vinyle pour aller au bout de la face A et avoir l'effet de coupure par l'aiguille qui revient au début. Un album incontournable.

J’ai toujours trouvé fascinant que le côté B de cet album contient assez de matériel pour faire un album exceptionnel complet. À la place, ils en ont fait des petites tounes de 1m30. Il faut avoir confiance en sa capacité à en écrire d’autres. Ringo a déjà dit que les tounes s’enchainnaient parce qu’ils étaient trop paresseux pour leur trouver une fin. J’aimerais ça être paresseux de même. Bref, c’est mon album préféré de mon band préféré.

It's quite amazing how Macca and George Martin managed to marshal the band one last time even though the party was pretty much over and come up with something so sublime. Lennon had outshone McCartney on the White Album but Macca is the star here, not that Lennon and Harrison's contributions were in any way less than great, and even Ringo (with George's help) manages to come up with a jaded yet joyous Fabs nursery rhyme to rival Yellow Submarine. "We transformed the sixties now here's the seventies for you." And there they were, gone.

For my 100th album I get my favourite album of all time and I've listened to this album an endless number of times. If a doctor is giving me one hour to live, this is the album I want to be heard playing. To me it's completely flawless and I love every single song, even the ones that people find mediocre. Side 2 is completely flawless. Here Comes the Sun is my favourite song of all time. There are so many other songs I love from so many artists, but Here Comes the Sun just taps into something so deep and it's to me it's the most perfect song ever written. I could talk endlessly about why I love this album, but it's pointless. It's the highest rank album on this site and always included in the top 10 albums of all time. It's there for a reason. The peak of creativity and mastery by one of the greatest bands of all time.

How do I call this album iconic without sounding like the Gen Z youth who overuse that word to the point that it's completely lost its impact? If that word still packs any wallop at all, then it's rightly used in full meaning here. The album artwork alone, my god. Everyone on the planet knows it. It also sums up perfectly why George is my favourite. These other dudes in suits and he's giving you Canadian tuxedo hippie man cool. He's the best one! The most enchanting and emotional tracks, Here Comes The Sun and Something, which he wrote both make it onto this album. Bless him for getting a word in edgewise for once! Excellent songwriting, as always. Incredible, groundbreaking instrumentation. Flawless delivery. It's what we've all come to expect of them at this point in their career. It is endlessly listenable, never boring, full of nuance and comfort at the same time. It's the perfect chunky cozy sweater that you'll never part with and look forward to cuddling in every autumn.

There are some awesome tracks on this album, but I was gonna dock a star for some of the twee nonsense. A couple of listens and the tracks that initially seemed weaker grew on me (unlike Sgt.

Now that the cranberry juice fever has faded, this album has surpassed Rumours in this site rank, but, surprisingly enough, it has been also surpassed by the fourth album by Led Zeppelin lol… Is this the correct order? Maybe, maybe it’s only that more hard rock fans are doing the list than before, I couldn’t tell. I’ve been listening to this record ever since I was born, I still have my parents vinyl copy (a very poorly treated 80’s by me, my siblings and cousins lightweight press) and I do have my 2009 remaster, I will eventually buy the 2019 repress but it’s not my priority as I did not hear anything very different from the 2009 one, why? Maybe because it was so magnificently produced the first time. My god did Martin had the touch. Is this the best record of all times? I don’t know but it is mostly flawless, I mean, I could try to find a weak link Maxwell’s Silver Hammer but actually would be trying too hard… I use to think this album was overrated and have never understand Why Come Together seems to be their most popular song (not that I don’t think it’s a great song and that base line my god!), but I get how this album it is built in greater heights than Sgt. Pepper or the white one. It’s just a delight to listen from start to end, everything here is built as a farewell but goddamn what an awesome one, you just know they knew this was it, and they knew also that The Beatles needed to go with a bang a huge and great and glorious bang… the tracklisting is full evidence of that. I understand this was not the case back in those days being Let It Be published after, but having I been born 17 years latter it’s not an issue for me, this is the last album by the Beatles and that’s it. I’m reading Lennon said he didn’t like the album in the 70’s, and I’m kinda loving that fact as well lol. Now, since everyone here has said everything there has to be said about side A and its gigantic and timeless stone cold classics (along of course with B-side’s gorgeous and stunning Here Comes The Sun), let’s write something about the medley: damn it is a rollercoaster, damn it says it all without saying much, damn those drums, and those intercalated guitar solos give everyone their last time to shine (much like nowadays great bands do when ending their shows), damn those words “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make” will be with us to the day we die, damn how inadvertently brilliant closing Her Majesty is… damn what an awesome closing for the greatest music history (The Beatles) there ever was. Damn what an awesome and timeless record this is.

One sweet dream came true today. If the Beatles released Let It Be earlier in the year, Abbey Road would be the perfect final album for one of the best acts to ever exist. George's Something and Here Comes The Sun are up there with the best of the Beatles discography, John has some neat rockers in Come Together and I Want You, Paul's work in the Melody at the end is an interesting experience they've never done before, and even Ringo has a chance to shine in Octopus's Garden. Even the weaker songs (Maxwell's Silver Hammer for instance) can be enjoyable at the right time. Also features one of the most simple yet often replicated album covers ever.

I don’t even know where to start with Abbey Road. I can criticise aspects of this album, but the Beatles are still the Beatles. Things they did on albums, especially from their studio-based period, which were accidents have become so influential they seem like deliberate strategies, and people have built whole careers based on them. Some of the marked features of this album have become integral parts of the rock lexicon; the hidden track, the medley, the tom-heavy drumming, the use of effects like the leslie speaker, etc that emerged out of (arbitrary) opportunity of necessity. Most noted is the side 2 medley; born of necessity to utilise partially written song fragments, it became permission for extended side-long suites with disparate fragments (hello prog rock). The fact that it worked on Abbey Road excused the confusion of wilful collage with ‘clever’ song writing (and McCartney is one of the worst offenders at this, qv. ‘Band on the Run’. A ghastly incoherent mess). On this album, it helped present material that benefited from the succinct presentation. I mean, would ‘I Want You (She’s So Heavy)’ been better if edited down to a similar length as Polythene Pam? Maxwell’s Silver Hammer is, frankly, atrocious and feels like a track that might have made it’s way onto the White album, but does not belong here. And I agree with John and George that it was not worth the effort to record and include. But other than that, the songs are outstanding. (I was recently doping a deep dive on Let It Be, and the song writing here is SOOOO much better. Come Together, Something, Here Comes the Sun, and the side 2 medley are far and away highlights of the Beatles catalogue. (Here Comes the Sun is the most streamed Beatles song Spotify. It has always been a favourite of mine). Despite the clear tensions in the band around this time, they seem, to have put aside the worst of their bickering to lean into what a tight band they were. Augmented by Billy Preston and really great orchestral arrangement and production from George Martin, this last recorded output from t eh Beatles is confident and leaning into the future. The crisper sound from 8-track recording and a solid-state desk, tasteful use of synthesizer (white noise in I Want You aside) show that this was not just recycling their clichés, but committed to making a really great sounding record I rate my favourite albums according to those I most frequently play, and this is definitely in my top three (along with Revolver and Hard Day’s Night).

Oh end era Beatles, the great Abbey Road, a tribute to all their creativity I think, wonderful notes to end on. My Favourites are "Come Together" "Something" "Her Majesty" "Maxwells Silver Hammer" "Oh Darling" "Octopus's Garden" "I Want you (She's So Heavy)" "Here Comes The Sun" "Because" "You Never Give Me Your Money" "Sun King" "Mean Mr Mustard" "Polythene Pam" "She Came In Through The Kitchen Window" "Golden Slumbers" "Carry The Weight" and "the End" so that is the whole album then. Believe or not this is not my favourite Beatles Album (Which is the White Album) but it is in the top two! wonderful stuff that shows how influential these four liverpool lads are to music today sixty years after they started their journey to the "Toppermost of the Poppermost" great stuff and in my top 10 albums of all time.

Genre: Pop Rock 5/5 There isn't much that can be said about Abbey Road that hasn't already been said, whether it's a personal experience or a broad-stroked comment. One of the most ubiquitous rock albums of all time, and an album rife with some of the best written material the boys had ever come up with, Abbey Road is one of pop music's brightest musical statements. From top to bottom, The Beatles give us every trick up their sleeves, and then some. George Harrison gives us his two best songs up to this point, Something and Here Comes the Sun, Paul's music hall touches on Maxwell's Silver Hammer and his blues rock jam Oh, Darling! showcase his dynamic and intriguing range, and John gives us two of the decade's best hard rock songs in the psych blues vibes on Come Together and the proto-metal rocker I Want You (She's So Heavy). Even Ringo's best is on here, as Octopus's Garden remains a cult classic to this day. The real star here though, after the psych/art pop gem Because, is the B-side medley that finishes off the album. An 8-song prog-pop suite (9, if you include Her Majesty), touching everything from art rock to psych pop to baroque pop and back again, it's one of the best things the Beatles ever did, and unfortunately doesn't receive the modern props that it deserves. Abbey Road is the perfect pop album, with equal notes of beauty and heaviness, and ample time given to challenging the form in either direction. Immaculately produced and arranged, this is an album that will stand the test of time, and will continue to impress the generations that follow. Or, at least the generations who'll give the time to listen.

Yay Beatles!!!… The album opens with come together and what makes this a good opener is all down to that iconic guitar riff ( well it is in my opinion anyway) this song lyrics are rather nonsensical but they’re just there to carry the song really than to be it’s focus. It’s great though! Something is probably one of the most loved songs from this album and I have to agree it’s George Harrison’s magnum opus everything from that iconic guitar riff to the amazing lyrics and thundering chorus another banger! Now, was it worth getting the anvil for maxwells silver hammer? I’am not too sure but it’s still a fine song it’s one of those happy sounding songs that are really dark, the chorus is probably my favourite bit very catchy and the piano work after makes it so epic. Oh darling, is a great slower songs but still with a rampaging chorus probably not one of my favourite Paul songs but that’s just because he’s done so many bangers. Piano work is excellent here. Octopus’s garden is very Ringo it’s not a top tier song but still good all the instrumentation is perfect, the chorus is one of the most infectious ever. But it just sounds like a kids song. I want you ( she’s so heavy) is the very opposite to octopus’s garden a very John Lennon song a spiralling 7 minute epic with one of the best guitar riffs ever by the end it gets all fuzzy only to have one of the moon abrupt ending’s in music history. I still like it though. [yeah that was side one probably one of the best displays of each Beatles individual talents] Here comes the sun the most popular song that wasn’t a single, yeah this is a classic, great guitars good lyrics one of the most memorable songs of all time; great song! Then is because essentially a drugged up cult like chant with one of my favourite opening lines of all time in “ because the world is round it turns me on”. It’s solid though but only because of that vocal layering if not the attraction would probably be gone. [ now for the medley] You never give me your money: It has great piano work, good lyrics and while this is the only one that isn’t a fragment of this song this one has never been a favourite of mine. The flow between this and sun king is just a bit odd as well with some bug noises bridging the gap. I think it would’ve been better as it’s own song than park of this. Sun king: it’s essentially a reprise of because with different lyrics not bad but the album’s worst. Mean mr mustard: a short kinda comical little track It’s not a favourite but the flow into polythene pam is good. Polythene pam: my opinion on this one is practically the same as mean mr mustard but it flows well into she came in through the bathroom window. She came in through the bathroom window: best intro of the whole medley it’s sort of the end of the “first half” of the medley as there’s no flow into golden slumber’s. It’s a very good song though. Golden slumbers : probably my favourite song off the medley great lyrics great chorus which is kinda like a trick thing as it flows the same way it does into carry that weight! Carry that weight: another favourite of the medley the most uplifting track top song again! The end: I like this one and it’s a great closer to the album and to the Beatles catalogue and the lyrics are great but out of the this and the previous two theres no competition. [ bonus track] Her majesty: ( ha ha i’am doing this on the day before the jubilee) it’s okay… {Also on a Beatles note unrelated to the album my Spotify rolled over to I saw her standing there the first song on their debut so that’s cool.} Probably the funniest review I’ve ever done! Anyway it’s a true classic and still only my 3rd favourite Beatles album!

Is Abbey Road the best Beatles album? Not in my book. It's got some great great songs and starts off with a fantastic one two punch of Come Together and Something. But there a couple of songs that some wou,d call whimsical and charming I would describe as unnecesary filler. (though their sense of melody is strong even in those throwaway tunes. So it's not their best but it's still an easy 5 star album.

I remember first listening to this with my stepdad on a road trip when I was maybe 13 or 14 years old. It was one of the first albums whose construction made me pay attention to the album format itself, rather than just thinking of them as a collection of songs. It is also the album that made me really and truly understand the immense talent of The Beatles and why everyone made such a big fuss over them. I mean I had grown up with The Beatles and enjoyed them and everything, but had mostly listened to compilations of their earlier material, rather than proper albums. Abbey Road had a range, depth, and controlled experimentation that I hadn't quite experienced before. It's a journey to say the least. Almost like they knew this was the last hurrah so they had to get everything out they could. And thank God they got George Martin back on board to help them focus! You can bag on Paul McCartney all you want, but that song suite is a fuckin' marvel. Granted, this is also the album with "Maxwell's Silver Hammer," which is probably my least favorite Beatles track, and for which Paul is also responsible, but even despite that blemish, the rest of the album is so brilliant it more than makes up for it. There are great songs from each member that are suited to each of their strengths and personalities. It's particularly great to hear George finally begin to shine and produce some his finest work. On CD or streaming, the quick Side A to Side B flip from "I Want You" cutting to "Here Comes The Sun," has to be one of the most intense and beautiful moments in recorded music.

I mean, it's Abbey Road. It's one of those albums that other albums are measured against. It's a no-contest 5 stars. It's full of massive, genre-defining hits but it's the back half of the album that really seals the deal for me. The way they blend together a huge stack of short, but distinct songs into one long, experience is masterful. You just have to hold on and go for the ride all the way to the track titled "The End". "Abbey Road" is an incredible ride from beginning to end without a single misstep. Masterwork.

This album isn't bad, I'd even say it's pretty damn good, but it hasn't transcended time and space like the music critics would like you to think. The songs are pretty varied, but it's really easy to tell where it was a Paul song, or George song etc - the entire flavour of the album changes from song to song, which isn't a plus imo. Also, the "standard"-sounding songs kinda ruin the effect of the more experimental stuff by proxy. I can see why Lennon complained about McCartney's "granny" music haha. But it's hard to hate songs like octopuses garden - it is honestly good songwriting. 4/5.

Our first album on the Global Top Ten and this one actually fits the hype. Songs are solid throughout and a wide variety of sounds because the different members will take the lead on different songs.

Un clásico, vamos. Curiosamente cinemático. Qué temazo que es "Something". Hay que darle crédito a Ringo por "Octopus's Garden" no será el magnum opus de los Beatles, pero tiene cierto encanto especial. "I want you" tiene un final curiosamente oscuro y pesado para ser la canción anterior a "Here comes the sun". Quizá la intención está en ese contraste ¡ajá!

There are some transcendent moments, the exemplar being the lead-in to Here Comes the Sun. There's brilliant production, which is the part of the Beatles I appreciate most at the moment. (It's emphasized by the remaster, as well.) I respect the move toward guitar-focused pop. Abbey Road is a touch too slick, with less sticky weird parts than Revolver or Sgt. Pepper's. I don't love the near-vignettes on side B, but there the slickness is a strength.

I prefer to side one of the album and the opening two tracks of side two (Here comes the sun and Because). Not that fussed about the song suite thereafter, it's just a bit fluff with no substance. This is the best recorded Beatles album, the production is really crisp. It gets slated, but I actually really like Maxwell's Silver Hammer! Other highlights are Come Together and Something. As s you would expect from The Beatles, it's a really good album.

Kolejna wykreslanka beatlesowa na liscie, tym razem trafilo na abbey road, wiec 11 album w dyskografii bandy i przedostatni przed disbandem, niezmiernie popularny, co zreszta pokazuje topka generatora, na ktorej wrecz kroluje abbey road, wiec wynika z tego, ze jest to najbardziej popularne wydanie beatlesowe, pewnie za sprawa klasycznej okladki przejscia dla pieszych, jaki zbieg okolicznosci, ze akurat dzisiaj czytalem o otwarciu tego studia w ktorym wiekszosc materialu na te plyte byla nagrywana, jak dla mnie dziwna plyta, nie tylko ze wzgledu na fakt, ze najlepsze traki sa od Harrisona, mowa o something i here comes the sun, ale o sama popowosc, zwlaszcza drugiej strony albumu, bo sluchajac jej mam skojarzenia z residentami i ich komercyjnym albumem, wiec jako parodia beatlesow chyba sie sprawdzil, wieksza czesc b sida, to traki minutowe lub dwuminutowe, wyjatkami od nich jest octopusowy song od Ringo, bedacy drugim kawalkiem pod ktorym jest podpisany w dyskografii zespolu, czy wspomniany juz here comes the sun, czuc ze duet McC-Lennon juz nie byl taki plodny, bo ciezko o cos interesujacego, przewijaja sie yokowe motywy, przewidywania disbandowe, ale druga strona jak dla mnie jest zarowno lirycznie jak i muzycznie skladana ciezka do ogarniecia, wygladajaca raczej jak misz masz tego co bylo i mozna bylo wrzucic na plyte, ale beatlesowe fangeje, jako jeden z najgorszych gatunkow fanow w swiecie muzyki, potrafia stworzyc niestworzone teorie jakoby to byl jeden song na pol b sida, jednak sluchajac carry that weight i nastepujacego po nim the end, ktory jest zamknieciem albumu, jesli nie liczyc ukrytego traka her majesty, to nie mozna odmowic beatlesom ladnego pozegnania, bo chociaz nie jest to ostatnia wydana plyta, jest jednak ostatnia nagrana razem, wiec o ile let it be nagrywane bylo w nerwowo, bo pod kamerami, tak abbey road mozna sluchac jako album pozegnalny bandy, ktora wie ze nie da sie dluzej ciagnac na sile odcinania kuponow, no i jest to tez najlepiej technicznie nagrany krazek bandy, bo technologia juz poszla do przodu, a zaplecze technikow grupy, to pokazna lista nazwisk, na plejce juz mialem Harrisonowe kawalki, ale dodam do nich oktopusowy song i duet carry that weight z the endem, na ktorym wokalnie wystepuje caly zespol, natomiast the end featuruje girarki trzech czlonkow i drumsy ringowe, co daje kazdemu mini solo, mini, bo kawalek dwuminutowy, moze po tym przesluchaniu jakos bardziej docenilem te druga strone plyty, ale nadal jestem zdania, ze zdecydowanie przehajpowany album w rankingu generatora

A lot of great songs on here: Come Together, I Want You (She's So Heavy), You Never Give Me Your Money, and so on. But the real crown jewel of this album is the medley, which carries on from You Never Give Me Your Money. Each song has a distinctive flavor while also flowing seamlessly, creating a great run of jams all the way to The End (haha, do you see what I did there?). I cannot stress how much I feel the medley elevates the album. I'm not a huge Beatles guy to begin with, but it's really neat to see that sort of thing played out. One of my favorite albums of all time took inspiration from this medley, so hats off to The Beatles!

This is this fourth Beatles album on this list. If I could change the ratings I previously gave those other albums I would. They (With the Beatles, The White Album, Sgt Peppers) all received a 4 but those probably needed to be adjusted down. Half ratings would have been useful. This album is better than those other albums so 4.5, but I will round down and give it a 4. Nonetheless, this album has 17 songs and clocks in under an hour. This is a benefit. The album starts out strong. Then there are some eccentric songs. Peaks with Here Comes The Sun. Then the remaining songs are alright. They are familiar and I have heard them before. There aren't that many campy songs on this album.

4.2 + It's rare that a top-10 music list doesn't include "Abbey Road" but it's not even my favorite Beatles record. First, "Come Together" is probably the most tired song on classic rock radio. And any cool factor that song may have once had was thoroughly sucked out by Aerosmith with their atrocious cover. Second, people praise this album's cohesion but to me it sounds like a potpourri with few unifying themes or concepts. Going from "Something" to "Maxwell's..." to "Oh! Darling" to "Octopus's Garden" - it feels like they strung together some leftovers from other recording sessions. Third, "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" really drags down the end of side A - it's such a ponderous and pointless slog. Fourth, I dislike "Golden Slumber", both the song and McCartney's grunty vocal performance. Still, there's plenty that I do love on here. "Maxwell's..." is among the best of their cartoonish ditties. "Oh! Darling" is an extravagantly soulful ballad that McCartney actually does manage to nail vocally. "Here Comes the Sun" is an evergreen classic that brightens any graduation or wedding ceremony. The trippy "Because" has some incredible synthesized orchestration and choral harmonies. And the "Medley" is a carousel of colors and images.

"Here Comes the Sun" is one of my all-time favorite tracks from the Beatles. "Golden Slumbers / Carry That Weight / The End" is my next favorite track on this album. I have a soft spot for the absurd in the tracks "Octopus's Garden" and "Maxwell's Silver Hammer". This was not the first time I've listened to this album, and probably not the last.

The purists will hate me for it but comparing Abbey Road to Sgt. Peppers or Revolver, this just isn't a fantastic album

I normally glaze over when the Beatles come up, but I have to say the start of Come Together did hook me But I still have that mental block on the Beatles - for me a 3 as I dont hate it but but I ever choose it? I know it's a classic, but its not for me

It's one of their best, if you like that sort of thing.

Never got the hype around this one to be honest. It's still good, but I'd take Revolver or Sgt Pepper over it any day of the week. My favorite songs on this album are "Come Together", "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" and "Here Comes The Sun". I don't care for any of the songs after "Because" - the medley doesn't work for me and never has, don't know why. I really hope I don't come off as a contrarian, because I see that this is one of the highest rated albums on the site. The problem is clearly on my receiving end, I fully get that. Although Rango "Sir Richard Starkley MBE" Starr really carries the Beatles to greatness as always with his beautiful song "Octopus's Garden", which is a metaphor for pubic hair or some shit. Peace and love, peace and love 😎✌️🌟🌟❤️🎶💕☮️

There were a number of enjoyable songs but also a lot of chaff.

I quite enjoyed it, the songs sounded like dittys, conversations and were quirky and enjoyable enough. I could not see me downloading it though.

I don't know what to say about the Beatles. There's very little of their music that I think, "Oh, I'd like to go listen to that song again..." They were teenagers when they wrote a bunch of their big hits and the content is what you would expect from a teenager (sorry, Taylor). At this point their lives were about being famous, which wasn't something that generated a lot of interesting songs. There are friends who are nuts about the Beatles. They have every bootleg you can find. I'll try to listen to this album tomorrow flying from Little Rock to Ft. Worth.

I find it a very boring album. I couldn't compel myself to finish listening.
