The Beatles – Let It Be

21 09 2010

Listened: Thursday September 2

In some ways, Let It Be is pioneering album in the “skits” style (a style, as I noted before, of which I am not generally a fan). No matter, the Beatles can get away with it. Two of Us is an underrated song, and one of my favorites.

I haven’t heard the “naked” version, so I don’t know any better than to like all the Phil Spector production layered on these recordings. Once I get used to how something sounds, it’s hard to get me to think it sounds better some other unfamiliar way, but I guess I should check it out for the sake of comparison. In general I like the Wall of Sound style, though.
