Not surprised BEA has this a the top rated Beatles album. While there is a good case to be made for this, and at least three others of theirs for that title - the fact that they were able to be as incredible as they were, and keep producing classics every time out may be their greatest achievement. Given that, why not have their last album together be their grandest accomplishment?

There are some great tracks on here, but in the end, it all becomes a mess.

The beginning is too unfocused / has too many yellow submarine-esque duds. The end has some songs that seem too short / unfinshed (although I consider slumber / carry that weight to be the same great song so I'll give that a pass).

It's the middle core of this album (I want you - you never give me your money) along with "Something" that is of top notch Beatles quality.

Because of the shortcomings and inconsistency I can't say this is their best album, even though there are some truly amazing moments and the production is really great. I have to ask myself does it peak as high as "Fixing a Hole" or "For the benefit of Mr. Kite" or "A Day In the Life" - no.

This is a not a top 5 album for me, shoot the Beatles themselves have 2-3 albums that are better. It is a truly great album though, and that just shows how great the Beatles were if they have a handful of LP's that top this. I am glad that George Harrison kills it on several tracks here.

The medley on the B-side makes this album legendary. The A-side still has some greats (ESPECIALLY from George! I wish Lennon and McCartney allowed more of his songs to be on the other albums). There are some odd tracks here and there (looking at you Sun King), but I grew to love all of them over time. Also, this is possibly the greatest goodbye by any band ever.

This album really is the most cohesive and has the iconic "Beatles sound." It and Revolver are probably my favorites (today).

Perhaps Abbey Road shows the genius of the Beatles more than any other release, to be able to produce an album of this quality when the band was falling apart and personalities were clashing is quite remarkable.

For me, it doesn't quite have the songs of Revolver or the White Album, and it doesn't have the flow of Sgt Pepper's but as an album it is still one of the very best.

We have Lennon's brilliant Come Together, McCartney's You Never Give Me Your Money and Golden Slumbers and George Harrison has arguably two of his top three Beatles compositions ever included here - Something and Here Comes The Sun, not to mention the penultimate track of the medley, Carry That Weight which features harmonies from all four Beatles.

There does appear to be a little something of everything here and it all fits together quite beautifully and marks a fitting end to a wonderful recording career.

Super great! Currently my 2nd favorite album of theirs. I really love how eerie it is at times, but how they contrast it with some downright giddy tracks. Mccartney's vocals on some are quite impressive as well!
Best songs: Octopus's Garden, Because, Here Comes The Sun
Worst: Maxwell's Silver Hammer, You Never Give Me Your Money
