    Amazing. There will never be another band like the Beatles and this proves it why. Loved it, specially "the long one", what an amazing medley.

    Magnificent work. A return to form with modern audio techniques. A classic of pop rock music, a must.

    An already perfect album is made even better by the incredible mixing done to songs like Oh! Darling, Maxwell's Silver Hammer, Here Comes the Sun, and Golden Slumbers

    Side two of this album may be the best album side ever. The Beatles and George Martin at their best.

    Boomers think this stuff is great because boomers think everything their debauched and pretentious generation did was great. And the Beatles are the ultimate boomer band. Overrated. Pretentious. Insipid. But the worst of it is the Beatles are boring. This is old boring music for old boring boomers.

    As close to perfection as you'll ever get. It's got plenty of timeless classics (Come Together, Something, Here Comes the Sun) that you still hear regularly today. It's got experimentation throughout the album. It's got fantastic "album" tracks. The musicianmanship is spot on and the production is flawless. I have heard on occasion people referring to the 6 track medley toward the end asAs close to perfection as you'll ever get.

Bearing in mind the songs were probably all throwaway numbers to begin with, it's incredible that the band and producer created some of the most innovative music ever put down in a studio with this section. Yes, there is Revolver and Sgt Pepper, both incredible records but for me it's Abbey Road that is the Beatles most mature, most consistent, most balanced and overall most complete work and that is really saying something. A pleasure to listen to every single time. Expand

    The original album, remastered by a team co-headed by George Martin's son Giles, is presented with a freshness and immediacy that makes a mockery of the passage of half a century. ... The two CDs of sessions and demos are a revealing trove. [Nov 2019, p.88]

    The Abbey Road Anniversary Super Deluxe proves they were a cohesive unit through to the end. Their work once again sounds fresh and experimental yet always in the pocket of the melody. We can hear that the Beatles were eager to work together one more time to pour more musical flavors into their magic elixir.

    Giles Martin (son of George) has created an immaculate remix but all it really does is separate and boost sounds so that they can punch their weight alongside modern recordings on digital streaming platforms. It sounds good, but then it always did. ... What this painstakingly assembled 50th anniversary release demonstrates is that you can’t improve on perfection.
