After abandoning work on Let It Be it was fitting that the band put aside some of their differences to come back to the studio one last time and produce something they could be proud of as Abbey Road is surely one of the finest albums ever recorded. The centrepiece of the album is definitely the well documented medley of side two. This was a really innovative way to take half finished songs and turn them into something useable. McCartney probably deserves most of the credit for that as the driving force behind Abbey Road. But it's not just his good work on show. George produced probably his finest pair of songs for any Beatles album with 'Something' and 'Here Comes the Sun' and Ringo even chimed in with 'Octopus's Garden'. It might lean more towards being a kiddies song but it has a certain charm, unlike 'Maxwell's Silver Hammer' which was also disturbingly portrayed as one for the kids. John's offerings were a bit heavier than previous. 'Come Together' is a winner whilst 'I Want You' might go on too long for some but I can quite easily get lost in its long repetition. On 'The End' there's a section where Paul, George and John play short guitar bursts in turn. John is third and he really makes his instrument talk like never before. And in the end the love you take is equal to the love you make. Yeah, that's an ending if I've ever heard one.
