Welcome, it's never too late

Bono, Edge, Adam and Larry need to be put on LSD

You can see some video from the show here: http://www.cirquedusoleil.com/love

The only bad thing about this clip is the last frame.

I want this show on DVD

heard 20 minutes from Love this morning
the rework seems heavily inspired by Brian Wilson's Smile

Wilson being a more brilliant composer of course

Article in the L.A. Times today:

http://www.calendarlive.com/music/cl...,6247608.story

Martin's "Love" Fest

If you want to read it and can't access it, lemme know. I can copy & paste, but it's rather long.

Man, this project seems completely intriguing. The track-listing seems perfect.

Comes in around 3:10.

it is also used in the original version, but it's very faint. you'll have to turn the volume up really loud to hear it.

I've been listening to this over and over again, and I gotta tell you...it's pretty much worthless.

Don't get me wrong, now--The Beatles sit untouched at the top of my list of favorite and best musical acts of all time. They ain't goin' no place any time soon, either. This whole thing just feels freakishly pointless to me, though. Frankly, I was more intrigued by The Grey Album, which was in itself a pretty hit-or-(mostly)-miss affair, than I am by this.

Never in my life did I think I would say that George Martin has zero talent, yet here we are...the poor bastard just reached to far and, in the process, wound up not doing enough. These songs are basically unchanged from their original incarnations, particularly in structural terms. My lack of enthusiasm could easily be attributed to my own relative ignorance of all things this album, though--I mean, I came in expecting a mind-bending mash-up, but I suppose I was probably barking up the wrong tree. This is safe as safe can be, and aimed directly at the middle-aged, espresso-sipping types who read or write nationally syndicated music columns in non-music publications. The whole thing feels to me like a big-ass missed opportunity to have worked outside of the box; what could and indeed should have been adventurous and brave is staid, bland, and embarrassingly predictable.

At any rate, I still love these songs and all, but I couldn't possibly justify shelling out any money for an album I could easily make on a Mac with my own CDs, if given a weekend.

Great music, great songs, great memories therein...but a bland-as-poo album. If nothing else, though, it'll probably get a few kids to give the band a whirl, and I got nothin' against that. Also, anything which keeps that blasted, wallet-raping U218 thing off the top of the charts can't be all that bad...

There's an article on the album on cnn.com:
http://www.cnn.com/2006/SHOWBIZ/Musi....ap/index.html

Quote:
......Giles Martin said he came away impressed with the Beatles' abilities as a unit. Even when cracks were appearing in their personal relationships at the end, you could still hear the chemistry and quality in the music, he said.

Periodically, he would invite the two Beatles and two widows to hear what he had done.

"They didn't have any disagreements," he said. "They really didn't. Yoko was concerned about the quality of John's voice on 'Strawberry Fields Forever' because it was a demo. All they care about is whether it's good or bad."

During a playback of "Come Together," McCartney leaned over to Starr and said, "I remember that. We were really good on that day."

Starr said hearing the finished product was powerful for him and that "I even heard things I'd forgotten we'd recorded."

When journalists were recently invited into a New York studio to hear Martin play some of the songs, a security guard stood at the entrance to make sure no CDs or recordings snuck out. Beatles received the same treatment, Martin said. They weren't allowed copies of the project in progress, Martin said. ...................

I've listened to it, and some parts are very intriguing, but something tells me it won't hold up to repeat listenings for me because the original recordings are just

What does stick out for me is the sound quality, and just reaffirms that the entire Beatles catalogue will absolutely blow us away once the remasters come out, something I've been dying for since the Yellow Submarine songtrack was released.

Bought the CD/DVD set at Best Buy for $16.
I just listened to it too. I need to listen to it properly with headphones though. The album opener is just Really gorgeous harmonizing.
And the mashups? x 100. Drive My Car ->The Word ->What You're Doing is amazing. All of them are.

The album artwork makes me really want to see the show.
