Abbey Road is the 11th studio album released by The Beatles. It is their last recorded album, although Let It Be was the last album released before the band’s dissolution in 1970. Although it was a commercial success, it received mixed reviews from music critics who found its music inauthentic and criticized the production’s artificial effects. Since its initial reception, the album has been viewed by many critics as the Beatles’ greatest work and is ranked by several publications as one of the greatest albums of all time. Abbey Road remains their best-selling album, and consistently the year-end best-seller in the US in terms of vinyl sales.
