The Beatles: Christmas Release for Get Back — Album Won't Set the World on Fire

Mike Gormley, Detroit Free Press, 17 October 1969

THE BEATLES' next album, Get Back, actually recorded before their recent album Abbey Road, probably won't set the scene on fire. It's better than Abbey Road, which is probably the worst they've ever done, but Get Back will worry people. There's nothing new on it. You've heard it all before.
