iTunes Review

The group’s final studio release was actually recorded before Abbey Road, but was set aside and then released a few weeks after the band’s decision to split had been made official. Here, the group worked on recording with no studio effects or overdubbing of additional instruments or vocals. Their intention was to perform the songs live and capture them directly on tape. This approach provides soulful urgency in “Dig a Pony” and “I've Got a Feeling” (both aired during the band’s final rooftop concert). The album also unearths some of The Beatles’ rock ’n’ roll roots with tracks such as “Get Back” and “One After 909”. Famed producer Phil Spector was eventually brought in, adding his own signature layers of sound to several songs, including two of the band’s most popular ballads — the title track and “The Long and Winding Road”.

fantastic

the beatles are the best band in history. Thank you Itunes for finaly putting their albums on the store

let it be

I came from a family of 9. I was 10 years old (1970) sitting in front of the black and white TV with the whole family watching this song getting beamed by satellite into our lounge room. It was the biggest event since the Lunar landing. That's how good these guys were. Beautiful song.

Rough but great

A return to their rock'n'roll heritage, Let It Be is just rough enough around the edges to still have a perfect sound. Though it's not Sgt Peppers or Rubber Soul, it is still a fine example of The Beatles being able to produce catchy, fun, innocent and yet somehow deep songs. The jumpiness of Get Back and One After 909 seem out of place when you then listen to the deep, screaming passion of I've Got A Feeling and Dig a Pony, but they still fit perfectly together. This should be the fifth album on your list just because of the rooftop concert songs. Everything else is an added bonus, you'll just need to let some of the overly orchestrated songs grow on you.

Years Active: '60s

So much has been said and written about the Beatles -- and their story is so mythic in its sweep -- that it's difficult to summarize their career without restating clichés that have already been digested by tens of millions of rock fans. To start with the obvious, they were the greatest and most influential act of the rock era, and introduced more innovations into popular music than any other rock band of the 20th century. Moreover, they were among the few artists of any discipline that were simultaneously...
