Conventional wisdom holds that the Beatles intended Abbey Road as a grand farewell, a suspicion seemingly confirmed by the elegiac note Paul McCartney strikes at the conclusion of its closing suite.
The truth is perhaps a bit messier than this. The Beatles - Abbey Road Beatles had tentative plans to move forward after the September release of Abbey Roadplans that quickly fell apart at the dawn of the new decade, and while the existence of that goal calls into question the intentionality of the album as a finale, it changes not a thing about what a remarkable goodbye the record is.
In many ways, Abbey Road stands apart from the rest of the Beatles ' catalog, an album that gains considerable strength from its lush, enveloping production -- a recording so luxuriant, it glosses over aesthetic differences between the group's main three songwriters and ties together a series of disconnected unfinished songs into a complete suite.
Where Sgt. Pepper pioneered such mind-bending aural techniques, Abbey Road truly seized the possibilities of the studio and, in doing so, pointed the Mary - Eveline Cocu - Stop Rewind Play forward to the album rock era of the s. Many of the studio tricks arrive during that brilliant suite of songs, a sequence that lasts nearly a full side of an album.
Here, McCartney 's playful eccentricity juts against John Lennon 's curdled cynicism, while the Saturday Garden - Zoux - Good Days thrills in sudden changes of mood and plays plenty of guitar, culminating in McCartneyLennonand George Harrison trading solos on "The End. The subdued boogie of Lennon 's "Come Together" contains a sensuality previously unheard in the Beatles -- it's matched by "Because," which may be the best showcase for the group's harmonies -- Harrison 's "Something" is a love ballad of unusual sensitivity, and his "Here Comes The Beatles - Abbey Road Sun" is incandescent, perhaps his purest expression of joy.
