Sloppy in conception, and even sometimes in the playing, Let It Be often gets a bad rap. Unfairly, as it's often as charming, well written, and (oh yeah) rocking as the Beatles' "better" albums; it's also more outright fun than Abbey Road, the masterpiece it followed into the stores. With Lennon and McCartney working together on the perfect "I've Got a Feeling," "Two of Us," and "Dig a Pony," it's hard to believe these guys were about to implode. --Rickey Wright

Few rock albums have a history as convoluted and controversial as that of Let It Be. Beatles fans know the story well: McCartney, unlike the rest of the band, wanted to go back to live performances; a bunch of songs were worked up, and a rooftop concert was proposed in which the songs would be played and recorded. The overriding theme of the sessions was "back to basics": little or no overdubs and a lot of live-in-the-studio playing. The working up of these songs, the Get Back sessions, never materialized as an album in the 60's and the band abandoned them to work on what would become Abbey Road. Legendary producer Phil Spector was handed a copy of the Get Back sessions out of which -- after doing some post-production work, adding in some trademark strings, giving a couple of songs his trademark "wall of sound" treatment, and having the band add in a couple of overdubs -- he assembled this album. This album can be seen, in a way, as Spector's interpretations of the sessions -- dialogue, fragments, his own touches, and all. After much pressure by the public and subsequent label hyping, some of these sessions were finally released in 1970. The album has been riddled by controversy and varying interpretations ever since: some loved it; others hated it and called it the worst Beatles album ever. Among the Beatles themselves, Lennon admired Spector's presentation of what he saw as a very poor set of songs, while McCartney has complained for years about Spector's heavy-handed overdubs -- a situation which he has recently seen rectified with the release of the alternate album, Let It Be... Naked.
The album itself has a kind of jagged, raw quality. It is often quite clear that the band is playing live and laying off of the overdubs: little polish is present.

Listening to this I thought one of two things, is this bad in comparison to albums like Abbey Road and Revolver, or is it just different? I think I'm leaning towards diffrenent. I have to stand up for Spector, his production gives the album a unique sound to the Beatles catalogue. And what's wrong with him trying to be experimental as a producer on Across the Universe? It's an unusual song. I'll have to see if I can hear the other version and tell you which one I like better. While I wont tell you this is the best Beatles album, there is still moments of greatness. I me mine is a tongue in cheek look at either egotism and/or introspection. The way George sings it give it drama. Get Back and For you blue are excellent, chugging rhythm and blues numbers that are fun, and then there's two McCartney Staples, Let it be and The long and winding road. I personally like Spectors production, and as I said it's unique for a Beatles album to have such a production. Across the universe is an intereseting song and the other songs are fun, if anything. It's interesting to hear the Beatles trying to just have a bit of fun without trying to make a masterpiece. It was a wonderful idea to make a 'live' album, minus the polish and endless takes of their usual album. There's only one song I don't like, all the others are a great listen.

Let It Be may have been an experiment that didn't work, but the result is still interesting. Even Phil Spector's 'overproduction' is okay. The songs are, for the most part, average, and that takes away from the album in a big way. Even the live-in-the-studio take of Let It Be (not the same as the single, which was a polished version) nor the rooftop performance of Get Back (again, different from the single) can really elevate this album beyond what it is: a cleaned-up jam session. This is the only album where the cracks in the armour are so evident.
But some of the songs are good: besides the two mentioned, Two Of Us is a great moment, and Across the Universe, which seems out of place here, is a dreamy Lennon track that works despite the fact that Spector essentially took the original version (found on Past Masters, Vol. II) and slowed it down, making Lennon's vocals sound somewhat croaky. I Me Mine works too, although it isn't one of Harrison's best by any means.
This album is unique in that its the most rootsy and bluesy of any Beatles' disc, but after hearing the outtakes on the Anthology, and learning from various sources the other material that the band had also been working on at the time (some of which cropped up on Abbey Road) you have to wonder how much better this could have been. Still, it is the Beatles. That alone makes it worthy for me.

Finally, after more than 33 years, the non orchestral arrangement of Let it Be has been released! On Nov 14, I purchased highly advertised Let it Be...Naked 2-CD set here in Japan. There was a long line to get the new set, so I knew it must be good. I must say, I was quite impressed with the sound quality, and the removal of Phil Spector's various orchestral and choir arrangements.
Now for the comparisons of the two albums. First of all, as many people expected, the sound quality is much better, and there is virtually none of the original tape hiss (The only exception is disk 2, which is mostly studio chatter)
Now for the songs:
"Two of Us" the song starts immediately, without the short intro that is on the original. The song itself is the same.
"Dig a Pony" is also the same, but it does not have the false start that was included on the original.
"Across the Universe" is now a beautiful Acoustic song, without the orchestra or choir. This is one of the best songs on the Naked release.
"I Me Mine" is nearly the same. The only difference I noticed was that the stereo separation was slightly modified.
"Dig It" is not on the Naked Album.
"Let it Be" is a different take. A little shorter, by maybe about 15 seconds. Paul's voice has more life to it. The organ is much more defined and louder. The backing voices of the other Beatles sound much better. The guitar solo is different, but better I think. The drums toward the end are somewhat different, but only serious Beatle fans will notice it. There is none of the orchestral arrangement from the original. This is a great song, and I think this new version is better.
