"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.
