A major step above the white album for both consistency and ideas.
The Beatles most influential album
Excelente COME TOGETHER ..SOMETHING..HERE COMES THE SUN...I WANT YOU...EL MEDDLEY ...Y ESE FINAL ESE GRAN FINAL THE END ...ES MISTICO
Arguably the greatest album ever made. The best group ever at their very best. They were blessed having Lennon & McCartney as songwriters , but to also have George Harrison, who gave them Something and Here Comes the Sun was astonishing. Beautifully produced by George Martin , it’s a wonderful album.
Abbey Road is the last flash of brilliance from the Beatles, and it encompasses all facets of what they had done together over the past decade. Maybe the strongest part of Abbey Road was the fact the band played together like they hadn't played since the days of Revolver and Sgt. Pepper. There is so much on these songs, John's jamming and growing interests in the political scene, Paul's word craft, George's spirituality and burgeoning songwriting, and Ringo's humor. I'm glad the Beatles gave us this to remember them by, and the music speaks to us even now. Each track is a slice of each man and as with Pepper, to remove one track would take away from the majesty that were the Beatles, therefore all tracks are essential.
Huh, so that’s where late ‘70s Queen got their sound from.
Seriously guys, this is definitely NOT their best album. “Octopus’s Garden” is just boneless “Yellow Submarine”, “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer” is just boneless “ob-la-di ob-la-da”, and the soul-ish songs are unimpressive. Sure the album has enough great moments, but come on.
The B-side is a very interesting blend of songs, but the most creative thing about it is how they managed to camouflage the fact that they were actually out of ideas.
I know it was released as their penultimate album, but this is the Beatles swan song. Not only does this album have two of George's greatest Beatles songs and one of only two songs written by Ringo, but it also shows the band as being more unified than they had in years. I love how the first half of the album gives little tastes of the band's history. There's the light pop songs (Maxwell's Silver Hammer, Octopus's Garden), the love ballads (Something, Oh! Darling), and finally the more psychedelic music (Come Together, I Want You). Yes it's a lot of conflicting sounds and ideas but just like with the white album it shows just how fractured the band was in the late 60s.
It's the second half of the album that makes this album one of the greatest of all time in my opinion. First of all, the transition between I Want You (She's so Heavy) and Here Comes the Sun is just amazing. Going from that dark, overbearing riff to the peaceful sound of George Harrison singing and plucking his guitar feels like... well the sun peaking out after a long thunderstorm. From there, the Abbey Road Medley (I'm including Because in there) shows that the Beatles could still come together to create 9 songs and ~15 minutes that represent the band at their most adventurous and unified. I mean, what better way to end the career of the greatest band ever than with the three song combo of Golden Slumbers, Carry That Weight, and The End.
Yes, Her Majesty is a strange song to end the album on, but honestly I love it's placement. That upbeat, 30 second jingle always makes me smile.
This album has everything. Even though they hardly spoke to each other at the time they managed to make this masterpiece, it's kind of a miracle. I want you (She's so heavy) is truly epic and the medley is maybe the greatest 15 minutes of music ever recorded.
Highly influential recording that would go on to inspire countless minor traffic incidents.
Everything about Abbey Road is so damn perfect. The Beatles wanted to make sure they ended the group on a high note. I do think the medley at the end that starts with "You Never Give Me More Money" is a bit pretentious.
