    Engineer and record producer Glyn Johns has deemed The Beatles' album Let It Be as "trash."

    Seriously.

    Johns has said the he believed he would work on the album as an engineer under longtime Beatles' producer George Martin. But that wasn't the case. Martin bolted and Phil Spector stepped in.

    And Johns thinks that the album sucks because of it.

    "I was disappointed that Lennon got away with giving it to Spector, and even more disappointed with what Spector did to it. It has nothing to do with The Beatles at all. Let It Be is a bunch of garbage. As I say in the book, he puked all over it. I've never listened to the whole thing, I've only listened to the first few bars of some things and said, 'Oh, forget it.' It was ridiculously, disgustingly syrupy."

    Ouch!

    Do you dig Let It Be?
