In "All Things Must Pass" Harrison shines brighter than ever

His debut is a 23 track powerhouse that really goes toe toe with The Beatles' best

George really came into his own as a songwriter during the middle of the band's peak and was thus overshadowed by Lennon-McCartney something that although made sense was unfair. From 66' and onwards George's contributions were consistently some of the best in their respective albums. Songs like "Taxman", "Blue Jay Way" ... read more


George is the best Beatle, sorry everyone, but I don’t make up the rules, this is the truth, and this album shows how much talent he had.

Prior to this I've never heard a solo project from any member of the Beatles, so I guess the best place to start with that is with my personal favourite Beatle George Harrison and his sophomore album 'All Things Must Pass'.

This, right here, is perhaps my favourite album of all time, and solidifies George Harrison as the best Beatle. All Things Must Pass resonates with me every time. It's a graceful and heartfelt record full of grand, well-assembled songs, each having their own mystical aura about them. One of the best listens of my life.
