Would've preferred for Abbey Road to have been released last, and the fact that Don't Let Me Down isn't on this album is a crime, but this album still has some damn good tracks on it. I'm a rock fan, so this album appeals to me quite a bit. If only we could get a CD of the entire rooftop concert, then I'd be happy.

For the best possible listening experience, I'd highly recommend the "Let It Be...Ultimate" playlist on Spotify. Someone took all the best recordings of the tracks and arranged them according to the Naked track listing. It's how the album should have been released!

From Nowhereman1965 09/09/2018 14:13
Arguably the most underrated album of all time. Gets a bad press because of poor reviews at the time of release and because of the toxic atmosphere surrounding the film Let it Be. However, the music is still fantastic. How many bands would give their left arm for songs like Let it Be , Get Back , The Long and Winding Road and Across the Universe? Including inessential doodles like Dig It and Maggie Mae interrupted the flow a bit and made folk compare it to the smooth sounding Abbey Road. However, it’s still a great album by a great band.

Aside from a couple of unnecessary tracks (Dig It, Maggie Mae) and some overzealous production from Phil Spector (most apparent in The Long and Winding Road) this is a good, maybe even great album. I think it gets a lot of unearned hate because it is a slightly anti-climactic end to the Beatles catalogue. It's too bad this didn't get released before Abbey Road like originally planned.

This is a strange album, most of It songs are better in the singles version, and at one minute you are hearing a master piece like "Let It Be" and the other you're listening to a random lazy song like "Maggie mae".

It's still a decent album, but the drop in quality from Abbey Road is quite remarkable, which is weird considering most of the songs from Let it be were recorded before the Abbey Road sessions. Anyway, as much as I love their albums, splitting was probably the best decision they could've made before sinking into mediocrity.

You really get a sense of how far apart they were drifting by the late 60s. A little bit messy but still a lot worth revisiting.

It's a fine album on it's own right, but it's the Beatles weakest LP. Definitely was a good time to end the band, but had this album come out before Abbey Road, at least the Beatles could have exited the music scene with a bang. This...isn't really a bang, despite some good songs found on it.

The weakest Beatles LP that I've listened to. I like to think Abbey Road was their real last album

Absolutely underappreciated. Too many beatles fans don't like it. Let it Be and Long and Winding Road will always remind me of my passed father...

Also I always thought "Dont let me down" blonged here
