3 stars Ahh what a piece of history right here. The last studio album released by the Beatles. (Yes folks, it was recorded before Abbey Road). Okay so aside from the history part, its just another one of those career ending so-so albums. Yes, it does get enough airplay out of my audio equipment, but frankly its just O.K.

The stand-out tracks, in my opinion, are "Two Of Us", "Across The Universe", and "I Me Mine". "Two Of Us" is a great acoustic-ish ballad that touches on the softer side again. "Across The Universe" is another ballad, but this features some OUTSTANDING choir work, although the producers did make this a little sickly-sweet in my opinion. During all of the internal Beatles controversies, it seemed to me that George Harrison was the only one concentrating on this album, as "I Me Mine" stands in a class of its own here. What a song.

A few things that disappointed me however, were the tracks "Dig It" and "Get Back". "Get Back" is one of the msot popular songs but honestly, I just find it to be boring. Repetitive blues riffs and yawn-drawing singing. And "Dig It" is only a 0:50 track on the album, but blame it on the producers again because it was cut down from around 8:30 minutes of a freaky acid jam.
