Pitchfork

The perfect ending to a recording career, this LP shows a band still in its prime, capable of songwriting and recording feats others could only envy.

Abbey Road would’ve been the perfect swan song for a monumental musical career.

'Abbey Road' is the biggest and one of the most unique albums in the Beatles catalogue and honestly it gets better with every listen. I don't think that it's a perfect album, it has it's tracks that don't live up to the incredible highs but when the highs are as good as they are on this record, I'm having a good time, especially from Come Together to I Want You (She's So Happy), those stretch of tracks are flawless in my opinion.
