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!

Abbey Road is among my 3 favorite Beatles albums (the other 2 change relative to when I last listened to them). It's hard to put into words the impact they made in 6 short years they were a global phenomena. Including such iconic songs as the elegant "Something", the joyful "Here Comes the Sun", and "Because", this albums demonstrates 3 song writers and a band at the very pinnacle of success all the while disintegrating due to internal conflicts. Such memorable work by the most important pop group ever proven by their continuing popularity today.

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

Hello, darlings! - 1969's Abbey Road would mark the end of the Beatles journey together. Endsville was just around the corner for The Fab Four.

Barring “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer,” side A of Abbey Road is perfection. It’s crazy that side B manages to outshine it with a perfect, joyful 16 minute medley. The Abbey Road sessions were the last time all four Beatles were in a studio together and it’s a great send off.

Released in 1969 - "Abbey Road" would be the 11 studio album by the English rock band the Beatles. The recording sessions for the album were the last in which all four Beatles participated. Although "Let It Be" was the final album that the Beatles completed before the band's dissolution in April 1970.

"Abbey Road" is a rock album of 17 tracks that incorporates genres such as blues, pop, and progressive rock, and it also makes prominent use of the Moog synthesizer, as well.

The album's cover, which features the four band members walking across a zebra crossing outside Abbey Road Studios, has become one of the most famous and imitated images in the history of popular music.

(*Be sure to watch "She Came In Through The Bathroom Window' music-video*)
