Clang clang clang, the sound of customers running away. The game is very disappointing sales-wise so far, and packs like this aren't going to help it any. The holiday season, maybe.

This and the Rubber Soul complete album will fulfill this game.

I wish the dreamscape for "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" was more interesting, but those songs look fun to play.

 Uh, it sold 600,000 copies, beating GH5 by almost 100,000.
 
How is that a disappointment?

Please don't feed the troll... they don't know any better and can only learn by example.
 
I downloaded the pack and played the full album... I really don't remember Sometimes being on the disc... though it says that it is... The Dreamscape looked new and didn't look familiar. Oh well. Great DLC pack. It was fun to play the full album.

I think that given the Beatles name, people were expecting 1 million first month. However, 600,000 is quite remarkable considering that a lot of those sales are probably 200$+ bundles.

I will give this one a miss. However I am not a fan of the game, I thought I would have enjoyed it. But I did not.

I don't care for this selection... hmmmm I wonder if the plan is to drop a hit or two into each pack to make us collect the whole library. Sad thing was I have been chomping at the bit for more content, this just isn't it

Posted by Linkyshinks

Awesome.

Posted by MachoFantastico

Really want to get this... though I have no money right now! *Sad Face*

Considering the download is of a 30 year old album that is considered one of the greatest ever released I really don't think Harmonix is "sneaking" a few hits into each dlc pack .  
Since the content of these dlc  releases for the next few months is widely known I can't see how anyone is surprised at the contents even if you only have a small knowledge of the Beatles.

I'm glad that it is possible to play through the entire Abbey Road Medley on Side Two at once... It's one of the greatest medley's there has ever been in the history of music. After this, I want White Album DLC.

best dlc i got all year. 
also this is thier best album in my opinion.
Posted by RHCPfan24

I got the singles for free due to a preorder I made at Gamestop. They are good songs but, really, the game included the best tracks from this album already. Only people who really like this album will probably want to get it.

Greatest ever released?  In what respect? sure it was the first Beatles album to reach 10 millions slaes but it met  with middling reviews at the time and has since never reached the heights of the iconic white album and Sgt Peppers, in fact in the Rolling stones 2003 issues entitled "the 500 greatest albums of all time" listed below shows that even revolver and Rubber soul made it in the top ten where Abbey Road did not.  I understand if in your knowledge of the Beatles this is a suitable release, however there are a lot of fans of their work who would find this a middling to poor start to the download list. Please don't mistake your opinion as fact.

I'm guessing he means one of the greatest albums ever released, pretty much everything done by the Beatles is up there though in these charts. 
 
Personally I love Abbey Road, it's grown on me over the years. I'm now 28 and have been listening to the Beatles since I was a small child so it's part of my musical makeup, but it's one that I've appreciated more in recent years. 
 
I think from a Rock Band perspective it's probably a good choice as a first album, more so than Sgt. Peppers or Rubber Soul as it's more diverse from a gameplay point of view. Sgt Pappers is a fantastic album, but it holds a lot of my initial dounts as to how this translates as a game, songs like 'She's Leaving Home' not really translating well, plus the fact that almost half the tracks from that album are already on the disc.

Abbey Road rules, I'll have to get this.

All the more reason to get Beatles Rock Band now!!
