That link you sent me had a message saying "File removed for copyright infringement" or something like that!

But looking at all these (mostly) positive reviews, I just might pick it up at the store!

What you should have done in the first place, Mr. Beatlesque.
I want to watch the DVD content already.

I only found out what this was 2 days ago

I read about it in the Sunday Times who were saying it was basically a complete waste of time! They seemed to be of the opinion that it's really only mere mixed up versions of the songs you all know except that we can hear John's vocal coming to the forefront or something to that effect!

Are they talking shit or what? I read through this thread and everyone seems to think it's great!

I wondered what your comments on the critic's point of view is?

It's a gimmick cd, but it sounds fantastic!

It makes me wish they would remaster the entire Beatles catalog.
C'mon already!!

Does the cd/dvd version have a real dvd with video content? Or is the content a dvd audio version of the cd in 5.1 surround sound??

I'm a little underwhelmed.

I mean, it sounds AMAZING and makes me want to wail to the heavens: why aren't the Beatles CDs being remastered yet???

I think I was spoiled by hearing Strawberry Fields Forever first. That's the best thing on the album, I think. The rest of it is good, but I was expecting more of what they did with that song: the use of demo versions, the additional snippets of songs at the end.

I know there's some of that here and there on the disc, but I thought the whole thing was going to be like that.

Oh well. It sounds amazing, anyway. I'm not sorry I bought it.

I am, however, sorry I sprang for the deluxe edition. I thought the DVD was a DVD of the stage show. A DVD of 5.1 audio does me no good on my rinky-dink TV and DVD player.

Oh well.

Listening to it for the first time... on Something right now. Wow, sounds beautiful so far. The transitions are very nice.

I thought Something and Revolution sounded the best amongst the tracks that didn't have major tweaking done to them.

To be fair, though, none of the songs had truly "major" tweaking done to them. They sound fuller and now I want more than ever for the catalogue to be remastered, but better sound and the fleeting string section switcheroos aren't anything to get too excited about. I feel like people who think this album is the second coming don't listen to any mash-ups, as a very general, imprecise "rule."

By the way, it's time to stop the presses, kids--Stephen Thomas Erlewine is threatening to be relevant, again!

http://www.allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p...fjm7i6ng77r~T1

That's easily the most spot-on review I've read, so far. Not too vitriolic, but certainly not as laughably apologetic as most people in this thread and pretty much all the other critics whose feelings I've read on the matter. Love, hate, or feel casual indifference towards the album, if you must...but you gotta recognize a solid piece of music journalism when it comes up.

Yes, even if it's from Erlewine.

Also, as corianderstem kinda alluded to, good sound does not a good album make. If that were the case, then Rings Around the World wouldn't be such a piece of shit. If somebody remastered Metal Machine Music, it would still be unlistenable, regardless of the clarity of the din, or whatever.

Meh, I look at this as a continuous listening experience. If you just pick the odd track or three it doesn't seem that overwhelming.

As far as mash-ups, there are a lot of good ones out there but they're still mostly tacky, and the novelty is gone after one listen. There's a lot of care in the re-arrangements on Love, thankfully and some of the mixes seem so natural (Drive My Car for example). It's more like a big live concert.

Oooh, I may have to amend my wish list to include this. I saw it at Target last night and almost bought it.
