So there it is : the best album ever recorded without the shadow of a doubt! Your mileage my vary, but to me this is simply incredible value. I never get tired of listening to it. Any new version I find is enough to give it a try. Favorites include the UK LP, the Toshiba Black and the fresh 2009 Remaster. Everytime I play it one more time i discover a few details i didn't notice before or find another tune that simply rocks me like never before. From the opening 1,2 snap attack double bass/hi hats of COME TOGETHER, the pro - metal tour de force of I WANT YOU, Ringo's dreamy 60ies fantasy about that OCTOPUS GARDEN, George's ballads HERE COMES THE SUN and BECAUSE; or (playing right now) the dreamy sequence including YOU NEVER GIVE ME YUR MONEY, SUN KING and POLYTHENE PAM - not to forget MAXWELL'S SILVER HAMMER, that bloody ballad this covers so many highlights, more ideas to be found here than on their grand opera : THE BEATLES aka 'White album'- The first album that was made to sound best on your Home Stereo, not meant to be played live. So George Martin and the engineers at Abbey Road Studios had just as much input than The Beatles. Finally. Respect goes out to the instrumental skills on display here, Paul's bass was never so exposed, Ringo's small Ludwig drum kit sounds larger than you can image on the final parts - simply check his drumming on CARRY THE WEIGHT on a true audiophile system with large bass sound. Before the final sequence with final 'So In The End The Love You Take Is Equal To The Love You Make' ends this fantastic recording you get pushed from one killer track to the next - it is Side 2, that has that special magic. You get many moods and many lyrics, melodies and emotions. So this was The Beatles legacy. Will there ever be a better album ? No, they just don't make them like that anymore...
This is the Beatles album that you should play to those who think they don't like or care about The Beatles ..:-)...Thought it is over ? not really THE END is a nice little da capo. Sweet and perfectly perfect, also to test your Stereo equipment... Can it carry the weight ?
