shouldn't you be trolling a metallica site or something?

So....I know "Love" is not highly regarded for good reason, but that mashup of Mr Kite/She's So Heavy is one of the coolest things I've heard.

Love isn't highly regarded? It's amazing. I've seen the actual show three times, and that was amazing too.

I heard a lot of people were pissed at the album itself. Then again, I read a lot of the negativity towards it on Atease, so I guess I should have considered the source.

I don't know what they possibly could have expected that would have got them pissed off. It's an ecstatic celebration of all things Beatles, a true love letter.

So I'm ashamed to say that I never really dove into the solo careers after the Beatles broke up. Sure I know the big hits, but never really listened to any post Beatles albums.

Where you would all suggest I start out? I normally favored Lennon and Harrison over McCartney but I'm open to anything.

Harrison's All Things Must Pass is essential. McCartney I has some sweet tracks as well.

Thanks. I was hoping someone would recommend a Harrison album first.

For my money, John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band is easily the best of the Beatles solo albums.

The five you need TODAY:

1. All Things Must Pass
2. Plastic Ono Band
3. Ram
4. Band on the Run
5. Imagine

McCartney I isn't great, and I wouldn't recommend it as a starting point, but I'm very fond of it. It's so sloppy and lovable.

It's a nice transition into his solo work given what ended up on The White Album, what demo'd there, and what made it onto McCartney I.

On that note, I'd also recommend Anthology 3, if your goal is to frame the transition into the Beatles' respective solo careers. I find it to be the most interesting of the three anyway, though the music on 2 is probably of higher quality.

Anthology 2 is killer. Easily my favorite of the three.
