This is the best produced Beatles album. The sound on the album is still very fresh 35 years after its release. For me it is a worthy last album by the Beatles. It really shows how much Beatles did improove through their career.
It is very a Paul album. He nearly acted as a producer on side B, with the long Medley. George also contributed with two of his best songs and guitarwork in a class of his own. I have an outtake of Something which last for 7 min, it is awesome.
Johns contribution to the album maybe isn´t that big but the songs he wrote for the album are great.

I was eleven when I bought YS and I at first I felt cheated when I realized it had only one side of Beatles songs, the other songs being Martin's. Eventually I got to enjoy those as well.

1. Come Together 10
2. Something 10
3. Maxwell's Silver Hammer 10
4. Oh! Darling 10
5. Octopus's Garden 10
6. I Want You (She's So Heavy) 10
7. Here Comes the Sun 10
8. Because 10
9. You Never Give Me Your Money 10
10. Sun King 10
11. Mean Mr. Mustard 10
12. Polythene Pam 10
13. She Came in Through the Bathroom Window 10
14. Golden Slumbers 10
15. Carry That Weight 10
16. The End 10
17. Her Majesty 10

I give it a perfect 10. I wouldn't change a thing about it. But, If I was Paul, I would have made Her Majesty longer, and left it off of Abbey Road altogether. Letting the album finish with The End. Then, I would have dropped Maggie Mae from Let It Be, and put Her Majesty, in long form, in its place. But, I'm not Paul. So, its fine like it is. Perfect 10.


I bought Sgt. Pepper when I was 12, and was very careless with it. It got scratch to badly to play. After I heard it , I Got Stung by The Beatles, so to speak. :lol: So, I bought it again. After I bought it, I thought to myself, "I want more of this stuff!" Then, I was undecided on whether I should get Yellow Submarine or Abbey Road. So I bought Abbey Road. In a few more years, Yellow Submarine was re-released. So, I think I made the right decision at the time! :lol:

Perfect decision !

BTW how did you come up with that forum name of yours ??
I was itching to ask. Do not feel that you have to answer,
but I had to ask anyway.

Well, Berkeleyan, I picked Mean Mr. Mustard for my first Yahoo ID because I thought that it was just a funny song about a "dirty old man". Then, almost everyone on Yahoo Pool was making their M's like this "llvll". I thought that was cool. Eventually, I wanted a new Yahoo ID. But, I couldn't think of anything better than Mean Mr. Mustard. So I decided to use the "llvll" for the M's. I just used the same thing for my forum ID. That's all. Nothing spectacular. :lol: Thanks for asking, Berkeleyan!

Was it some foretelling or what !!??
Woah, B', quite insightful there, never occurred to me, but I'll bet that was deliberate. :shock:
