Sound — 9
Firstly, I must say the Beatles have never sounded this good before. My dad is the hugest Beatles fan, he even named me Sam Lennon Singleton, and when he bought this album I thought it would be just like all the other Beatles stuff. How wrong I could be! George Martin and his son have done a excellent job of remastering and merging the songs seemlessly. Almost every song is combined to the next track and creates a really great effect. Beatles at their best.

Well we've all heard them before haven't we? Although they are the same old Beatles songs there is a few added lyrics here and there. For instance on 'Octopusses Garden' there is more spoken words in the background.But on the whole nothing new except for the backwards played Sun King (Gnik Nus). The lyrics are brilliant mostly the Lennon/McCartney songs but Harrison and Ringo also pulled this off nicely.
Overall Impression — 10
This is a must have CD even for non Beatle fans there is something for everyone. Compared to other Beatle albums This one shines high above the rest. Although not all the Beatles songs are on the album the best are there and digitally remastered to boot. If it was stolen I would hunt down the thief(although I can't blame him for wanting it) I would probably buy it again.The tracks that really stood out to me was'Revolution', 'Back in the U.S.S.R', 'I am the walrus' and a medley of 'Drive my car/What you're doing/The word'. I love everything about this album and I would like to hear some more Beatles songs such as'Nowhere man' remastered. All I can say now is but this album.
