5.0 out of 5 stars Final Walk, January 4, 2001
This review is from: Abbey Road (Audio CD)
While Let It Be was their final release, Abbey Road was the result of the last time they recorded together in the studio. Despite the annonmosity and frayed tensions among the band, Abbey Road shows that they could produce music head and shoulders above everyone else. "Come Together" has a Chuck Berry riff and George Harrison's "Something" has became a standard with even Frank Sinatra recording a version. "Oh! Darling" has Paul McCartney flexing his vocal muscles and "Octopus' Garden" is a fun and goofy Ringo Starr composition. "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" is aptly titled as it has an urgency and yearning John Lennon vocal with heavy guitar playing. "Here Comes The Sun" is the best song George Harrison did with the Beatles with it's optimistic lyrics playing in stark contrast to the dark clouds surrounding the band at the time. The song suite that closes the album shows the band were still willing to push boundaries and it is appropriate it closes out with a song called "The End". Abbey Road marked the close of the recording career of the greatest group in music history. In the six years that they made music in the studio together, they produced songs that not only affected the music world, but the world as whole. From their hair, to their clothes to just about everything they did, they gripped the public's image and attitudes.

"Come Together" has a Chuck Berry riff? Good grief. How many Chuck Berry riffs have you heard?

Listen to Chuck Berry's 1955 recording, "You Can't Catch Me." In 1973 Lennon settled out of court with Berry's music publisher.

I still think that thier cd's for Rubber Soul and a few others still sound fantastic. That includes the cd's With The Beatles and I read in the liner notes that those albums were done before Abbey Road but I could be mistaking that. So I'm sure some other fans will let me know if that's the case.

I order this CD a few days ago and I'm concerned about the way (sudden) I Want You (She's So Heavy) ends. Is this normal? Or I may have received a defective CD.

Frank Sinatra said "Something in the way she moves" is the most beautiful song ever.

It is normal...the song has always ended abruptly.

P Magnum, The Beatles actually recorded, in the studio, at least EIGHT (8) years. Count each year, 1962 - 1969, and you will get eight years. I don't know where you got SIX years...
