Review Summary: Absolutely stunning.

0 of 6 thought this review was well written

Just last year I received "Abbey Road" on a 44" vinyl. Might I say, I was hooked as soon as the record started spinning. I'm sure many would agree that The Beatles were one of the biggest musical influences in history. After releasing 13 amazing albums (besides Yellow Submarine, of course) "Abbey Road" was one of the very best.

The album starts out with "Come Together" a perfect choice to start off with, if you ask me. "Come Together" has a very keen vibe to it. The sort of bluesy-pop rhythm really sets the mood for a great album.

The next track is "Something". Let me tell you, if a man wrote me a love song as epic as this, I wouldn't leave him for his cousin. Yes, the song really is "Something" great.

On the other side of the record starts off with "Here Comes the Sun". In my opinion, this song actually isn't as great as it's made out to be. For some reason, "Here Comes the Sun" is one of those songs that people think of when they think of The Beatles. I believe this band had way more talent than what is displayed in "Here Comes the Sun". Although it is very catchy, it's really nothing special.

Then, we hear one of my favorite songs on the album, "Because". This track is beautifully written, sung, and all around put together from intro to end. However, you still get that psychedelic feel that is found in many other Beatles' songs. To me, the song is a song to think very deeply to. I'm not sure why, but this is one of those songs that gets me brain moving in ways I didn't know it could.

No matter how great the beginning of the album was, the end medley is just about the best part. It's amazing to me how such different songs can flow so well together. The order is: "You Never Give Me Your Money", "Mean Mr. Mustard", "Polythene Pam", "She Came in Through the Bathroom Window", "Golden Slumbers", "Carry That Weight", "The End". The last real track is followed by a short song put into the middle of the record. This was Paul McCartney's idea so that the listeners didn't have to listen to that annoying scratching at the end. Well Paul, you picked a good one. It's strange that after all the amazing tracks on this record, that very last "track'' that's barely a minute long is, to me, the best song. The song is short, sweet, and to the point.

All in all, Abbey Road was definitley a Superb album. There's almost nothing bad to say about this album, just like there's almost nothing bad to say about the band who created it.


-LONG LIVE THE BEATLES-
