BBC Review

At the fag end of the 60s, the Beatles produced Abbey Road, their last smoke and mirrors triumph, a musical truce that papered over cracks between the group which were, by now, unfathomably deep. It was to be a marvellous set-piece finale for the group that had defined the decade.

Although large sections of the material had been left over from as far back as their Indian sojourn in the spring of 1968, the overall sound and feel was that of a coherent and logical work, which played to every one of the foursome's considerable strengths.

John Lennon would frequently dismiss the album after its release, but Abbey Road contains three of his very finest works: Come Together, I Want You (She's So Heavy), and Because. George Harrison established himself as an individual talent of some note with the beautiful Something and the ever-lovely Here Comes the Sun, and even Ringo Starr continued to set fair his light entertainer course with Octopus's Garden.

However – the deplorable Maxwell's Silver Hammer aside – Abbey Road is primarily a triumph for Paul McCartney, preserving The Beatles' legacy on their less-than-fond farewell. Apart from being fairly low-key on the album's first side, his piecing together of their 'long medley' from leftovers and doodles on the reverse is possibly his greatest sustained achievement, culminating in every member of the group soloing on The End. Although this side is responsible for myriad crimes later committed in its name (think the worst of 10cc, ELO, Alan Parsons Project), it is a mature and intelligent coda to the single most important act British music produced.

The Beatles’ work was done. They'd come to symbolise the 60s, taken youth culture to the world, and ultimately collapsed under the responsibility, the weight they had to carry. Abbey Road is the soundtrack to it all. --Daryl Easlea

Won't speak about the music, it's obviously incredible! Will however give my first impressions of the remaster. I've been excited for ages about the release of the Remastered Beatles albums and was taken aback to find Abbey Road in my local Morrisons 2 days before the official release date! (Spoils John Lennon's superstition about the number 9 somewhat). I've been flipping between the old and new cds to see how big the differences are. It is instantly apparent that there is a new crispness, detail and depth that hadn't been there before. It's as if the instruments and vocals are more clearly separated with no blurring between the lines. Lying on the floor with your eyes closed and with a set of good headphones, you can almost look around within the sound and see the individual lines playing only to you.
On first comparing the old and new copies the first thing that strikes you is the volume, noticeably a couple of notches louder on the new remaster. The old one is certainly flatter in contrast and almost distorted in its blurring of detail.
However, don't get me wrong, these differences are quite subtle. It's a big difference in some ways, but I'd say the majority of people won't really appreciate it. A bit like comparing a DVD to a Blu Ray, yes you can see it's crisper, but you remember the film, not how sharp it looked or even how big your screen is!
For a true fan that knows every note and sound on everything they ever released, like myself, I love it. I revel in the genius the whole process was. Writing, arranging, performing and recording it doesn't get better than The Beatles. This will remind you how good it all was in better definition on a digital format then ever before. It's been a long long....long time coming, but this is probably as good as you'll hear it. In my head, it was always this good anyway.

What's so deplorable about 'Maxwell's Silver Hammer'? McCartney, in his heyday, had a certain talent for slightly ironic little 'Vaudevillian' numbers ('When I'm Sixty Four' and 'Honey Pie' being other examples) which always served to lighten the mood of a Beatles album (functioning almost like a scherzo in a classical symphony - the 'White Album' is full of this kind of thing). 'Maxwell' may not be the finest song on the record, but it combines a perky, well crafted melodic shape with a deeply sinister lyric (almost like a Brecht/Weill song).

Nowadays, when expertly marketed mediocrity tends to be the order of the day, it's good to listen to an album where the spectacular talents of the individual contributors really did combine to produce something worth listening to: Lennon, at the height of his powers with 'Come Together', the astoundingly heavy 'She's so Heavy' and the harmonic labyrinth of 'Because'; Harrison hitting a majestic lyrical vein with 'Something' and the twee but charming 'Here comes the Sun' and McCartney's more inconsistent but spectacularly diverse sequence of songs, culminating in the famous final medley (comparable in some ways to the finale of a Mozart opera). George Martin's role was (as always) crucial in developing a grand but lyrical sound for the group's final record. The clunky use of the Moog Synthesiser is a miscalculation and 'Carry that Weight' is a somewhat banal attempt to recapture the 'Hey Jude' singalong effect, but who's complaining?

Bob Geldof has been known to express the opinion that the brilliant segued song medley on the 2nd side of Abbey Road (from track 7 onwards on the CD version) has never been equalled or beaten by any other pop artist. That is a view which I share 100%. I love this album, apparently the Beatles' biggest selling record, and I can never tire of listening to the famous medley section - 22 minutes and 22 seconds of sheer musical brilliance. In later years, Lennon apparently dismissed the medley section as being just bits of incomplete songs cobbled together. How modest! If that really was his view, then it's a shame because it's the highlight of the album. Only the Beatles could have bowed out in such magnificent style and not once does the medley section of the album seem pretentious or ill-conceived. This was the last Beatles LP to be recorded, although the ill-fated Let It Be album was released after it. Abbey Road is a classic Beatles album, packed with quality songs (with the possible exception of Maxwell's Silver Hammer, perhaps the worst ever Beatles song). Even Ringo's Octopus's Garden is like a remake of Yellow Submarine, ie children's song with lots of silly noises. Although this LP was recorded in 1969 at the end of their remarkable career, I feel it has more in common with mid-period albums like Rubber Soul and Revolver as opposed to later works like Sgt Pepper and the White Album. Aside from the much-lauded medley, Lennon's contributions are outstanding - Come Together, I Want You (She's So Heavy), Because (the best Beatles harmonies ever? ). And as for George Harrison, his songs (Something, Here Comes The Sun) are as good as any Lennon/McCartney composition and demonstrate that his songwriting ability had come on leaps and bounds by this point.Read more ›

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.
