Paul's bass playing ? Sure, it could be better on Sgt. Pepper than on Abbey Road - I mean, the guy is one hell of a monster bassman !!
I bet it's hard to find a subpar performance of his on bass !

Actually a subpar performance of his would still be better than a whole lot of other bassmen would manage !

Well, Abbey Road...what an awful album.

Come Together: Solo John, no lyrics to speak of. And awful bass playing from Paul.
Something: another rubbish bass line, lyrics much to smoochy for me
Maxwell's Silver Hammer: the sound is so bad on this song..and the lyrics, well trhey should've stuck to really meaningful stuff like Yellow Submarine
Oh Darling: this might as well be a Wings song, would've been so much better if Nigel had produced it, shame he wasn't born
Octopus' Garden: Probably the best song on the album, although i still hate it
I want You: This sounds too much like something off of Imagine or Sometime In NYC for my liking. You know, John got awfully strange in about mid-1966.
Here Comes The Sun: yeah, the sun's coming, so what?
Because: it's not chamber music, you know
You Never Give Me Ya Money: ok, at least it's not as bad as those two clunkers Hey Jude and Let It Be. Man are they awful songs!
Sun King: I don't speak Spanish!
Mr Mustard: I know someone like him..loz, liz...i can't remember
Pam: the guitar work on this song is so bad. I prefer The Who
Bathroom Window: It sounds like Freedom and The Man rolled into one. Oh, did I mention that I hate Maybe I'm Amazed as well?
Golden Slumvers: It gives me the slumbers
Carry That Weight: one for the gym
The End: Thank god for that, what a waste of my life all these posts on a Beatles forum were. I just realised that i hate them!!!

That's good negativity - the only one that's good is the one that's not negative ! 8)

VERY FUNNY GENTS!

......And that cover! Paul should have worn shoes!.....

The Beatles also should have realized by that time that Yoko Ono is the greatest vocalist of that group and had HER sing lead.

New title, too would have been nice, like "Flabby Road."

I Do agree with the last official song title listed: "(Finally) The End."

If you play the last actual track backwards it says: "We should have kept Billy Campbell on board after Paul got his head sown back on and gave him 'the boot.'
"Step on the gas and wipe that tear away,
One sweet dream came true today!"
