Even though I am not the greatest fan of Spector's work on this album, the songwriting still shines through, and Let It Be has an undeniable crop of amazing tracks. Listening to this album only makes me more excited to eventually listen to the Naked version that removes most of Spector's embellishments. Regardless of that, there are so many great songs on here that it's a shame that some people let Spector's production turn them away from the album. My only real complaint is the album seemed to ... read more

Part of what makes Abbey Road so spectacular to me is that this was the last album that The Beatles recorded together, and it's their best.

Even though there are songs that I like more than others, they're all fantastic in their own ways. And the medley at the end of the album.

I don't think anyone would place Yellow Submarine anywhere but last place on a Beatles album ranking. And it deserves it. The only new song I really like on this album is 'Hey Bulldog', but it doesn't make up for the duds that are on the rest of the album.

Favorite songs: 'Hey Bulldog', 'It's All Too Much'

I had it on repeat for weeks after I first listened to the album. The Lemon Twigs don't always knock it out of the park, but when they do, it's the ... read more

There's really too much on this album for me to make a comprehensive review talking about all of the aspects of my favorite and least favorite songs on here, so I'll keep it short. I didn't expect it after my first listen, but this album has so many amazing songs on it. The ones that I brushed over on the first listen wound up stuck in my head days later, and soon I had the song that I thought I hated stuck on repeat for the rest of the day. Side 1 has so many amazing songs that if it were ... read more
