5.0 out of 5 stars "And in the end...", 16 Jun. 2002
This review is from: Abbey Road (Audio CD)
There are a million words I could write to describe this classic album. However, to put it succinctly, this is my all-time favourite album. This is the work of a band who were breaking up for goodness sake and who knew this was to be the swansong of the greatest band ever..The medleys are the most awe inspiring and moving pieces committed to rock record. To say they had run out of ideas is absolutely absurd. True, there are a couple of lesser tracks in my opinion, but hey, we are talking The Beatles here - lesser tracks by The Beatles are the equivalent to the quality of material most contemporary bands make a living from nowadays. Abbey Road is easily up there with Revolver, but because this was the last thing they did, it will always have an edge over that 1966 classic. You Never Give Me Your Money is my most favourite song ever, but just look down the list ... Come Together, Something, Here Comes The Sun, Because, Golden Slumbers ... Abbey Road is a musical adventure and a testament to the greatest band in the history of rock music.

"the Beatles are not that great"....perhaps you need to have another listen to them then, Daniel?

A very good review. Shame people have to spoil it with strange comments. It makes me laugh when people say things like 'Sorry to have to bring this to you', as though they know something you don't and you have somehow missed something and been a bit stupid. Unfortunately, you are in a severe minority if you don't like the Beatles. It's not an accident that they are widely renowned as the greatest band in history. And as for falling for the hype (yes fall for hype, not 'fell' for hype), to refer to it as hype is to do huge injustice to the genius of their songwriting, which is obviously completely lost on some people, and I find that quite sad.
