Dont let the title fool you, I still do enjoy listening to this album. Just not nearly as much as the rest of them. Of course, there's the stand out tracks on here, but I feel as if there's like 3 or 4 that are just thrown in there to make one last album.

Ahh.....

Then I'm guessing it's Let it Be.....!!!

 

Funny I thought of Beatles For Sale when it was mentioned so I guess that's my answer. But I can see his point. It's one of the two.

Let it B has two of my 10s TLAWR and I Me Mine .....4 Sale only one.....No Reply ......But's it's more Beatley so....Hmmn? 

.....I'm better at best....I'm worst at 'Worst'.

Two of us - great song, always pop up with John-Paul bromance even tho it might not be 😀

Dig A Pony - it's a nice song, I always liked it

Across The Universe - a classic

I Me Mine - well, it's their last song, and it kinda rocks, and it's pretty good anyways

Dig It - some people hate this little snippets, I personally love them. LIKEEE A ROOOOOOWWWLLLLIIIING STOOUUOONEEE

Let it be - hah, classic

Maggie Mae - I like it, but understand why others don't

I've Got A Feeling - awesome, AWESOME stuff, whish they did more of this type

One After 909 - classic oldie, it's decent

The Long And Winding Road - perhaps the only snoozefest, but some people like it

For You Blue - awesome, upbeat blues, can't forget that hilarious piano

Get back - the classicest of classic classics

 

So what, maybe two or three stinkers here?

But I'm not fair at all here, I love them all. In fact, their worst album for me is Yellow Submarine because Martin isn't Beatles singing ahdn_ringo_09

MY notes:

Two of Us   - great duet, all harmony like in the best days ...

Dig A Pony - an ok song, good riff-playing, excellent lead guitar

Across The Universe - nice, but John never was content with it (rightfully so)

I Me Mine - good effort by George, but originally very (too) short, Phil Spector almost doubled the length ...

Dig It - well, it´s close to an improvisation, as a documentry it´s ok and interesting, as a "song" it´s weak

Let It Be   - among the best 4 or 5 Paul has written up to 1970

Maggie Mae - a good joke, a good laugh, not more (left out in ... Naked - justified)

I've Got A Feeling - great rhythm, great, vocals ... and it´s 90% Paul´s, with only the ending by John (Everybody´s got ...)

One After 909 - great Rocker, don´t understand why they didn´t include it on With The Beatles (maybe instead of You Really Got a Hold ...)

The Long And Winding Road - simply a great composition, first ruined by Phil Spector with the choir and orchestra, perfect on ...Naked

For You Blue - very fine shuffle blues by George - always a joy to listen

Get Back - really a classic - and I love the guitar by John

 
Never understood why they left off Don´t let me Down (John´s strongest contribution in January ´69), at least a live version from the roof-top ...

...

My least loved album (excluding Yellow Submarine with it´s only 4 new songs which I don´t count fully, but counting Magical Mystery Tour in the 11-track-version) is Beatles For Sale ... some fine songs, but also some weak fillers.

Not as weak as 'Yellow Submarine ' so no. Also superior to 'Let It Be Naked' - dont get me started on that.

 

Strangely the three tracks that ended up on the Blue Album (tho its the single mix of 'Let It Be ') are not my favourites - tho i do prefer the Spector mix of said song. My life passes by happily without hearing 'Across The Universe '. Some folk say a good song is a good song however its done. I say no, a good song can be made shit if its reduced to the speed of boredom and overdubbed with a stupid out of place choir and insanely pointless orchestra.

For the 295,472,196,946 1/8th time, may I say I detest the use of the word "worst" when it comes to anything Beatley?

But seriously folks... 

When ranking The Beatles albums, I suppose one has to be ranked as the least favorite. For me, that changes on a daily basis. The only constant is my favorite.

Ya, that's my answer too. They should have stuck with the plan to make YS an EP and skip that side 2 george-martin crap!

I don't mind throwing on the Let It Be LP every once in awhile, but it sure isn't one of my Fav. apple01apple02

Sure - but different from WHAT?

The single-version (B-side of Get Back ) ?

Actually it doesn´t matter because on the original Let It Be LP there was no Don´t Let Me Down at all ...

'Don't Let Me Down ' on 'Let It Be Naked' is an edit of the two rooftop versions of the song whereas the single version is from the 28th January (DDSI #28.45 if anyone wants to find it on the bootlegs) + some vocal work from John and Paul overdubbed later.

That, or 'worst Beatles album' is an oxymoron. Let's face it: their worst is generally a whole lot better than many acts' best. The Fabs simply can't be compared to anyone else!

Well....This is probably the second worst albumpaul-mccartney even though it has some great, classic songs.... but the number one worst album is "Yellow Submarine "blue-meanie. It has "All You Need Is Love "heart, "Hey Bulldog " and "Yellow Submarine "a-hard-days-night-ringo-12 but most of it is songs by George Martingeorge-martin for the movie.

So ... they obviously put it in the wrong place - because Let It Be isn't their worst 🙂
