The Beatles on Repeat

BeatlesKlosterman reviews the new 13 Beatles remasters (out tomorrow) as though they were from "a 1960s band so obscure that their music is not even available on iTunes." It's funny.

The entire proposition seems like a boondoggle. I mean, who is interested in old music? And who would want to listen to anything so inconveniently delivered on massive four-inch metal discs with sharp, dangerous edges? The answer: no one. When the box arrived in the mail, I briefly considered smashing the entire unopened collection with a ball-peen hammer and throwing it into the mouth of a lion. But then, against my better judgment, I arbitrarily decided to give this hippie shit an informal listen. And I gotta admit -- I'm impressed. This band was mad prolific.


Also noted: the nearly 400 comments, which are almost all about Chuck. Weird.

Wow. Chuck is so divisive. Come on haters, try to deny this money shot: "I give Let It Be a B-, although The Replacements get an A and the cast of Sesame Street gets an B+."
