my personal RATING : ««««« (out of 5)

 

The latest Beatles' album is a masterpiece in the whole music history.

Who hadn't listened to this album yet?

If you had not, then run to buy it!

Abbey Road is the most technically refined album of the Beatles, with its 8-track recordings full of crystalline

transparency sounds, lively equalized, even if strangely mixed in some occasions..

The grave sounds range is deep and sumptuous and Starr's drums is fuller than ever (his bass-drum, in particular

is really effective).
