AllMusic

Whether Abbey Road is the Beatles' best work is debatable, but it's certainly the most immaculately produced (with the possible exception of Sgt. Pepper) and most tightly constructed.

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.

Paste

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

Rolling Stone

That the Beatles can unify seemingly countless musical fragments and lyrical doodlings into a uniformly wonderful suite, as they've done on side two, seems potent testimony that no, they've far from lost it, and no, they haven't stopped trying.

I don’t think this album is perfect, at least not at the moment, But god damn if the highs on this album aren’t unexplainably high.

Best Tracks: I Want You, Come Together, Something, Oh Darling, Here Comes The Sun

Best produced Beatles album with a fantastic flow. Straight forward at first glance, this album perfects the basics and expands upon them in an extremely satisfying way. A mix between the maturity and growth of albums like sgt p and mmt and the clean straightforward rock of w/ the Beatles and hard days night. This is truly the Beatles final form.

Best tracks: Something, I want you, Because, Golden Slumbers, The End
Worst tracks: Octopus's garden

Rating: 100/100(oh shit)
