This is just an amazing album, and the two very distinct sides, make things work even better, that said, I do enjoy the second half more, with that amazing medley, and what's with all the hate for her majesty, honestly it's a cute little track and it doesn't ruin the ending for me at all.

From chivocosmico 11/28/2016 19:29
Most great bands have at most one or two great songwriters, the Beatles had three! And I think no other album represents the Moptop Lyricist Trinity better than their seminal 1969 album 'Abbey Road', where the Fab Four for once put their differences aside to record a farewell worthy of their legacy —even though they later decided to complete and release 'Let It Be', a not-so-great but still decent farewell. And what better way to culminate the story of one of the most influential and iconic artists of all time than with this little rock number aptly titled 'The End', which works as a little epitaph for the band.

And it's in that song, when Paul, George and John begin to jam, that you can see how brilliant they were. Not because of their technical skills, because the Beatles were never about virtuosity. But it's rather because of their ability to complement each other that they were so great. Even though each solo showcased how fundamentally different their personalities are, the whole thing flowed so beautifully. They saw each other's ideas and took it to the next level.

John's last solo gives way to a last sentence sung in their trademark vocal harmony fashion, 'And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make', a final statement that perfectly captures their message and essence. And with George Harrison's final solo, the Fab Four announce their end, and with them, the end of an entire decade.

Not my favorite Beatles album, but a lot of strong songs, and the medley is interesting!

Favorites are Something, Because and Carry That Weight

Honestly, the first half is a little too pre-maturity Beatles. It's not bad, and the songs are cool and catchy, but besides Come Together (and perhaps Something) I wouldn't put them in the upper echelon of Beatles' tunes. The second half, on the other hand, is one of the most influential pieces of all time in its construction and production, and oh WOW what an ending to such an artist with The End. If Majesty hadn't been there, that ending would have been flawless.

Key Cuts: Come Together, Something, Carry That Weight

The perfect Beatles album. And just listen to Paul McCartney’s bass playing, you can’t find it any better in my opinion. And George on this album: Wow! The whole album is a wonderful swansong from one of the most important bands in the world. 10/10

The genius of this album truly lies in some of the finest individual writing from each member. Each band member added their own flavor to each track no matter who wrote it.

The album starts with the cool and relaxed Lennon feel of Come Together, Something is the soothing Harrison masterpiece, the next two tracks feature McCartney's brilliant and eclectic writing. The band comes together better than ever during the second half. Incredible, genius work.

The true finale to the Beatles' fantastic discography. A culmination of genres and mood with every song, from the light and lovey "Something" to the hard "I Want You (She's So Heavy)". Additionally, the second half of this album is one of the best album closers of all time. Period.

This is the best Beatles album. I do love Revolver, though.
