The final Beatles album (though Let It Be, recorded months earlier, would be  released in 1970).

Quote
Abbey Road is the eleventh studio album by English rock band the Beatles, released on 26 September 1969 by Apple Records. The recording sessions for the album were the last in which all four Beatles participated. Although Let It Be was the final album that the Beatles completed before the band's dissolution in April 1970, most of the album had been recorded before the Abbey Road sessions began.[1] A double A-side single from the album, "Something"/"Come Together", released in October, topped the Billboard chart in the US.
Abbey Road is a rock album[2] that incorporates genres such as blues, pop, and progressive rock,[3] and it makes prominent use of the Moog synthesizer and the Leslie speaker. Side two contains a medley of song fragments edited together to form a single piece. The album was recorded amid a more enjoyable atmosphere than the Get Back/Let It Be sessions earlier in the year, but there were still frequent disagreements within the band, particularly over Paul McCartney's song "Maxwell's Silver Hammer". John Lennon had privately left the group by the time the album was released and McCartney publicly quit the following year. A 16-minute medley of several short songs comprise the majority of side two, closing with the lyric "and in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make".

10 votes spread across 5 songs.

There went the Sun King. Buh-bye..

Vote off the song you like THE LEAST.

Tally on November 24

Come Together
Something
Oh! Darling
Octopus's Garden
I Want You (She's So Heavy)
Here Comes the Sun
Because
You Never Give Me Your Money
Mean Mr. Mustard
Polythene Pam
She Came In Through the Bathroom Window
Golden Slumbers
Carry That Weight
The End

Round#1 Her Majesty November 17
Round#2 Maxwell's Silver Hammer November 19
Round#3 Sun King November 21

I am going to continue to pick off songs from the suite. Carry That Weight.

It's very tough for pixletwin to answer why "Maxwell" is lesser track, to tell  the musical reason. I start very interesting discussion, yet people don't want to join. But if smb. else asked the very question, everybody would answer it rapidly, quickly running to computer to answer. Ha! Anyhoo, "Maxwell" is Top 5 in the album. 3D

"Polythene Pam" is pointless dreck. I'd throw "Pam" out the window - shoo shoo shoo. Smiley Cheesy

Short notice: the cat you see to the left is the best. Not counting your indoor cat who might have habit sitting at your left side when you post at SmileySmile.

Boy dislikes girl. The girl dislikes that boy. People dislike the boy AND girl. Question - WHO dislikes these people?

Pom pom generation thinks The Baby boomers can't hopscotch into admitting that they're ANYthing BUT cool & the boom they represent is archaic thing by now.
