4 stars Golden slumbers fill your eyes..

Abbey Road, the last studio album of the great Beatles, might be the cornerstone of rock music in general. Easily the best album of the sixties, this album has probably influenced all the rock bands of the 70s. What was it that made it possible to the Beatles to create this magnificient masterpiece? A mix of 4 talented musicians, singers and songwriters and a mix of creativity and consistency in the songs.

This album might also be the most accessible album for newer generations. There are rockers like Octopus Garden and Come Together that sound to me more accessible even though they have a strong 60s feel. There isn't really a single bad track on this album. The real gems on this album to me are "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" with its psychedelic organ fills and vocals, "Oh! Darling" and "Golden Slumbers" where McCartney shows his crazy vocal skills, "Here Comes The Sun" the Harrison masterpiece, and the before mentioned "Octopus Garden".
