1 stars The Beatles - Let It Be: 48% This album isn't that good as a whole. The best track on here by far is John Lennon's Across The Universe. All songs by Paul McCartney are dull, uninspired and simply made for the hit. These songs include Let It Be, The Long And Winding Road, and Get Back. I've Got A Feeling is just simply boring as it another repetitive McCartney song. Some bearable tracks include: Two Of Us, Dig A Pony, I Me Mine, and For You Blue. George Harrison's songs I Me Mine and For You Blue are actually decent though repetitive, they don't have that feeling that it's begging to be some kind of hit as do McCartney's. Also notable to McCartney's songs are the orchestra in the background; this just screams to you that it was made to be a hit. Well, at least in the fashion of the orchestra's use. The best rock song on this album is the first track: Two of Us. This track gives you false hope that it's going to be a good listen. On this track The Beatles go back to their rock n' roll roots which is not really achieved decently throughout this album. As for the rest of the material, it is subsequent fillers made to achieve the album length of the 35 minutes. It seems as if most of the songs were made to revolve around the hits. Which in essence they were, since they are hits for the most part. If you are barely starting to get into The Beatles find another album, and to progressive ears turn elsewhere! The only song I'd recommend is Across The Universe as I found it highly inspired and flowing.
