This album became the last one recorded by The Beatles. Let It Be was their last released album though. Abbey Road is said to be one of their most well constructed albums, and it is at number 15 on Rolling Stones' Great Albums of All Time list. In the U.K. it placed number one as soon as it debuted., and remained there for 11 weeks afterward. The album had the same reception in the U.S., but it crept to number one over a few weeks. By the time they band had broke apart the album had reached 7 million sales.
I think The Beatles got better over time. Abbey Road starts out with really good songs like "Come Together", but then it drifts into something not as enjoyable for me. I liked the beats of the songs that started out the album though, and felt they had a unique rhythm. Not to say the rest of the album doesn't sound good it just didn't maintain what the first ones did for me. This album has the potential to catch non-Beatles fan, and of course if you already are you will love it regardless.
Rating 4 of 5.
