So to speak.


I came into a large amount of funds by completely legal and moral means today. So if that deluxe Rock Band set gets good reviews, I might just have to drop the $250. It's more of a completist thing, though, since I don't dig the games all that much. So maybe that 250 would be better spent buying records, being saved, or having sex with Our Lady of Ill Repute 50 or so times.

they are predicting all 14 albums will land in the uk top 20... wouldn't that be incredible and a testament to the legacy of the band.

It will certainly be better than seeing Michael Jackson's albums back on the charts, that's for sure.

"Man in the Mirror" is an atrocious song.

Sorry, just had nowhere else to say that.

Sounds like someone needs to take another look at that man, Imperor.

"Getting Better" is mah favorite Macca Beatles song. Got a lot of good memories associated with that one.

In fact, the whole of Sgt. Peppers brings back a lot of warm/fuzzy stuff. Still, it doesn't crack my top 2 Beatles LPs.

1. Abbey Road
2. Revolver

Apparently if I order the box set from amazon.ca I can get it delivered in 2-4 days for just 143 euro I think I might be ordering

Hmm, didn't even think of trying that. Comes out to $173 U.S., and they're still available...

Is that cheaper than just buying them all individually? Hadn't that turned out to be the most efficient way of doing things, with the stereo releases?

You are relentless in your MJ hate.

Please Please Me, With The Beatles, A Hard Day's Night, Beatles For Sale, Help!, Rubber Soul, Revolver, Sgt. Pepper, Magical Mystery Tour, Yellow Submarine, Abbey Road, and Let It Be = 12 * $13 = $156.

White Album and Past Masters = 2 * $17 = $34.

$156 + $34 = $190.

Only a $10 difference, and that's for the case, I guess.
$200 for the box is obviously more than $190, but if you can really get the box for $173...

It may be inspirational and brilliant, but it's not really an enjoyable listen. It's great for Halloween soundtracks, though.

They were the best band of all time and there will never, ever be another like them. Even though I've heard these songs a thousand times having probably listened to them more than any other artist in my life, they're just so, so fucking good.

As namkcuR pointed out, for $173 it's worth it. But I still haven't decided if I even WANT Please Please Me, With the Beatles, and A Hard Day's Night. I'm just not sure.

Almost as relentless as the media and public onslaught I've had to endure the last couple months.

I love those early albums (Please Please Me is definitely my least favorite of the three, though). A Hard Day's Night is a must.

I've got With the Beatles, A Hard Day's Night, Beatles For Sale, Help and Rubber Soul blasting on random mode while I clean.
