I don't like Lennon's solo stuff. For how creative he was with the Beatles, his solo-stuff is really straightforward. And it goes back to George Martin: Lennon's solo music just didn't have the full-body that The Beatles stuff did. I'd say the same thing about McCartney, but McCartney's solo music was much more creative, IMO. Songs like Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey could have passed as a song on Abbey Road.

Let It Be, produced by Spector, was alright; there's no the George Martin feel to it. What made the album for me was Billy Preston-- he really stole the show. I love the electric piano and organ parts he has on the album. Who doesn't love his electric piano solo in Get Back ?
