This review is from: Abbey Road (Audio CD)
Abbey Road is and always will be my favourite Beatles album - It is and will always be my favourite album of all time as well. For those of you who are just getting to know Beatles music listen to this timeless classic and you'll realise that it will still sound fresh and strong in another 30 years time. You'll realise the immense debt that Popular music the world over owes to the Beatles.
Think of Golden Slumbers/Carry that Weight/The End and you know where the inspiration for classics like Bohemian Rhapsody came from. Think of George Harrison finally coming out of the shadow of John and Paul, with Something and Here Comes The Sun, think of the diversity of songs from Maxwells Silver Hammer to Shes So Heavy and Oh Darling and the pure wonder of the second half medley. They were ground breakers, standard bearers for everything that came after them couldn't have existed without the Beatles having shown the way.
For those of you who have forgotten what it is all about, put 45 minutes aside, sit down in a comfy chair, shut the world out and put on Abbey Road.....enjoy
