"Abbey Road" was completed back in 1969 just before the Beatles had officially disbanded (in order to pursue solo careers).

It's the Beatles! What more do you need to know? 100 years from now, they'll still be playing the Beatles' songs while Beyonce and Justin Beiber are only asterisks in music history.

The other intriguing bass line on Abbey Road weaves its way through Something. It is a virtuoso performance.

this is the Beatles masterpiece- and is probably the greatest studio rock album ever produced. From it- spawned many subsequent great albums.
From the arresting opening of " come together" to the last song on side A- Lennons masterpiece - with the abrupt ending ( almost a musical metaphor for life itself - It ends) is followed by the amazing side B- with its conclusion as a medley.
The tone of the album is slightly melancholic , at times menacing, and never cute or contrived.

It will never date.

Abbey Road would have been the best Beatles album of all time. Unfortunately Mawell's Silver Hammer and Octopuse's Garden tarnished it's potential. The end of Side A, fo;;owed by the entirety of B though, what genius!

Sadly, I couldn't get the bonus movie to run on a Mac. Quicktime doesn't seem to be backwards compatible.

Why not the double disc?

It may seem difficult or even impossible to top off an already revolutionary reputation, but this is exactly what Abbey Road managed to do and bring to the table. With 47 minutes of content and two singles, Abbey Road is easily one of the best albums to ever be released and this is a well-known fact. The incredible bass by Paul in "Come Together" to the eclat of melodic perfection on Side B of the record makes Abbey Road a truly unforgettable album. Despite other beliefs, Abbey Road was actually the last thing recorded by the group and not Let It Be, even though the Let It Be album was released afterward: qualifying Abbey Road for the title as one of the best albums to be released before a band broke up. I felt that side A would have been theoretically perfect if it weren't for the tune "Maxwell's Silver Hammer:" a rather annoying beginning to what could've been a flawless side. Typically the B-side to many albums are intended for the songs that weren't strong enough to be on the A-side, but this could not be further from the truth in Abbey Road! The brilliant craftsmanship from "You Never Give Me Your Money" into "The End" told a clear story with every track and made many shout-outs to previous releases: something I wish they group did more of. Even the album cover is unforgettable- depicting each member crossing the street to get to their recording studio on Abbey Road. If you feel the need to witness a brilliance that changed history, Abbey Road is most definitely the way to go. 5/5. @ShowMeTheMonet! of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
