2 stars The Beatles - Abbey Road (1969)

The perfect record...

I really love Sgt. Peppers, I like the old beatles songs and I'm still trying to get a vinyl of the White album and Rubber Soul. This album however was a big letdown!

The production of the album is very good and the sound is clean but OK. The songs however are very very boring! There are only two tracks I can enjoy, Come Together (of which the intro was recycled) and the great Hear Comes the Sun. All other tracks are boring or even painfull. I know this oppinion might be very provocotive for some members of our society, but it's just my opinion. I just miss the excitement of Sgt. Pepper's or the catchy tracks of other Beatles albums, or even the experiments with recording and rare instruments. All gone.

It's truly amazing how this album became one of the best selling and rated albums of the Beatless. My guess it's because it has a lot of easy popsongs. If you like popsongs this might still be a good album for you, but if you're in search for progressive music you'd better skip on this one because you'll only find intelligent and atmospheric songwriting on Here Comes the Sun. Two stars. Way to much filler.
