Abbey Road was the last record the Beatles ever wrote together. It's highly surprising that the quality of the album is so high even though the group was at their worst. The whole album goes from start to finish without a hitch. "Come Together" eloquently starts things off with tight bass, and fantastic vocals from John. "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" is a seven-minute epic containing both wonderful bass, and guitar work. Then there is "Something", which Frank Zappa says, "is the greatest love song of the past fifty years". Near the end of the album is "The End". It has incredibly strong drum playing from Ringo, and perhaps one of the best guitar solos on this album. "You Never Give Me Your Money" one of Paul's memorable ballads, and is about Apple's then financial mess. What might be the best song however is "Here Comes The Sun". It's personally my favorite George Harrison composition, and rightfully so! From chimy guitar playing to soothing vocals, this song swoops in, and takes you on one hell of a ride! This already is a must buy because it's the last album recorded by the fab four, but it's a bonus that every song is superb!

Odd, short review. Either way this contribution from The Beatles is one of their finest.

It looks like someone wrote a soundoff, and they accidentally submitted it as a review. Ah well.

This is an old blurb then when blurbs were transfered to either reviews or sound offs, it barely made the cutoff to be a review.

Cut I Want You in half and then it would be perfect. Still the best Beatles album anyways.

Maybe you mean Frank Sinatra?

I was about to say that, unless both Zappa and Sinatra agree.

WTF how many of my blurbs got turned into actual reviews?
