“Let It Be” has a ‘live-in-the-studio’ feel that translates to a lot of this material being done in the moment rather than fully thought out and realised as a whole that had become The Beatles standard at that point. Unpleasant sessions as a result of the band falling out may have resulted in this feeling somewhat fragmented and not fully accomplished, yet the artistry level is so high that you can’t help but overlook most of the bumps for the ... read more

"Abbey Road" has achieved iconic status for very good reason, it's everything genius about the Beatles in one LP.

So.... yeah....

"Magical Mystery Tour" is a little bit of an artistic slowdown, as the Beatles would get on a bus with all their friends and drive around the British countryside during the warm summer of '67, enjoying life. The result was a reflective, a little bit druggy, a little nostalgic, and inventively orchestrated and arranged LP which carried on the high the band was on and continued sharing fun, positivity and love to everybody. It's a feel-good record during a feel-good ... read more
