After a huge streak of revolutionary albums, The Beatles end their career with an album that is just an album. No reinventions that would change the shape of popular music, only good rock songs.
This one got some pretty mixed opinions from the fans and critics (or the closest The Beatles could get to receiving "mixed opinions", at least). If you don't like it you probably blame the mess that were the recording sessions for this album, the production or Yoko. However I think it is in ... read more
I mean, it's a good send off with some colossal high points and shallow weak points. The instrumentation is pretty good and the vocal performances are satisfactory; especially at this point in their career. This feels like an album that would be overrated a lot due to it being a legendary bands send-off album, but I guess that is to be expected. I just think this album is a good Beatles record, nothing too spectacular, but nothing to repugnant either.

For a final album, it's not that bad. got bored at some points, and I really have nothing much to say about it. This record was really enjoyable at times, though. Not the best Beatles album, but overall, it's still a pretty good record.

Favorite Tracks: Dig A Pony, Across The Universe, Let It Be (standout), I've Got A Feeling, and Get Back.

Least Favorite: I couldn't think of one. Not a bad song in sight, even.
Not the most amazing final album of all time, but what can I say, it's just classic rock. This album also houses some of their most melodic songs, such as The Long And Winding Road and Across The Universe. In my opinion Abbey Road would've been a much greater final album for The Beatles, but I mean, I still liked some of the stuff on here.

fav tracks: Across The Universe, I Me Mine, The Long And Winding Road, Get Back
After seven years, The Beatles end their career with what some may call disappointing, but I think is a great album. As a final project, it's not the best The Beatles could have had, and I have definitely heard much better final projects before. However, denying the quality of this record is just wrong. While I wouldn't really call anything on here The Beatles' best, nor would I say anything is truly amazing, it's still a very fun and enjoyable pop-rock record that is definitely worth a ... read more
