One of the greatest albums ever,
This review is from: Let It Be [Deluxe] (Audio CD)
It's no exaggeration to say this is one of the most important rock albums of all time. The Replacements had already shown on previous records that they were capable of something extraordinary, but with "Let It Be" they produced an album which set a template for all alternative American rock. The great thing about "Let It Be" is that it all just sounds so effortless. From the opening track "I Will Dare" right through to the final astonishing "Answering Machine", these are eleven songs which capture the spirit and power of rock and roll played with such a nonchalant grace that it leaves you breathless. I could go on about the way it influenced all of your favourite guitar bands.. or the incredible lyrics.. or the bands amazing humour and diversity, but I really shouldn't need to. This is a fantastic album from a band on top form, you MUST have this album. Five stars.
