Haha remember my Ringo rant in the Sgt. Pepper thread?

You guys here should find that. Historic stuff right there.

Adaytripper sigged one of my comments from it. Would you mind posting it for all the Beatles Chat readers to see?

For me, the last 3 tracks of Abbey Road (minus Her Majesty) are the climax of their entire career. You see the beauty of their songwriting in Golden Slumbers as well as the vocal capabilities of John and Paul, more so Paul; Carry that weight picks right up from where the previous track left off and builds the drive which carries into The End (I also love the little backtracking of the trumpets from you never give me your money); and of course The End finishes off with their most meaningful lyric. It's so fun to just listen to these tracks over and over again, gives me goosebumps every time.

Yea, it was their true swan song. Let it Be was an excellent record too. But The Long and Winding Road just isn't the same as The End (minus Her Majesty of course, the only true flaw on the record)

Actually, The Long and Winding road is my favorite Beatles song, what I really love about that one and the The End is just the heaviness and emotion that comes though; The Long and Winding Road especially, the violins paired up with the expressiveness of the vocals make this "Oh my god, these guys are ****ing geniuses" feeling.

O, you misunderstood me. I love The Long and Winding Road too. I just think The End is a better sendoff.

What I meant was as an individual track, the Long and Winding Road is better, but I agree, The End was the perfect ending.

^ Such a shame that Let It Be was released AFTER Abbey.

Yeah, but The End was supposed to be the last song on the last record by The Beatles.

I'd get rid of Yoko, she sings like a dying animal only because they wouldn't be the same if one of the 4 weren't there, The Ballad of... did come out of it though and thats a good song but man she was (and still is) uuuuugly, thought a man like Lennon could at least get a good looking japanese woman, tsk tsk

PS. I love Yoko Ono

Personally I don't really get the whole medley on the second half of the album. It just all seems a bit too frantic in my opinion. I guess it's an interesting concept - but I always find myself wishing 'Mean Mr Mustard', 'Polythene Pam' and 'The End' were longer. There's so much potential in those songs...especially the first two. 'The End' has such great parts but just sort of looses it near the ending.

There are alot of aspects of the second half of the album I think are pretty weak. i.e.

'Carry That weight' is just cheesy and 'Golden Slumbers' is just way too soppy for my liking. (typical Macca)

'She came in through the Bathroom Window' is great though. Great backing vocals.

I actually like 'Her Majesty' and think it's a nice ending to the album. It's a bit too predictable finishing on a huge climax, especially if the song's called 'The End' - so finishing on a nice whimsy song like 'Her Majesty' is cool.

But overall as much as I like the album, it's no way fit enough to be labelled flawless. I might cut my own version of the album (blasphamy!) but songs like 'Golden Slumber' and 'Oh! darling' I can't listen too without skipping.

I agree; I've never been a fan of albums with lots of songs in rapid succession. On the whole, though, (to answer Sloopy's question from earlier) I think it's a great album. One of my tops after Let It Be.

Honestly, Sgt. Pepper is one of my least favorite Beatles albums. Technologically, it was very innovative, but its songs are pretty forgettable in comparison to much of the Beatles' repertoire. I think history will remember Revovler and Rubber Soul as works far more important to the musical evolution of rock.

I agree with you on some points. I think that it did a ton for the way music was recorded like you said. But I also think that it has some classic tracks on it.

But in the end, I do think Revolver and Rubber Soul have consistently better tracks and are overall, better albums.
