    The Beatles were an English rock band, formed in Liverpool in 1960, and one of the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed acts in the history of popular music. From 1962, the group consisted of John Lennon (rhythm guitar, vocals), Paul McCartney (bass guitar, vocals), George Harrison (lead guitar, vocals) and Ringo Starr (drums, vocals). Rooted in skiffle and 1950s rock and roll, the group later worked in many genres ranging from pop ballads to psychedelic rock, often incorporating classical and other elements in innovative ways. The nature of their enormous popularity, which first emerged as the "Beatlemania" fad, transformed as their songwriting grew in sophistication. The group came to be perceived as the embodiment of progressive ideals, seeing their influence extend into the social and cultural revolutions of the 1960s.

    So Paul is getting a star on the Walk of Fame now that means that now there's a star for The Beatles and all 4 of them by themselves.

    Yeah I'm not a big fan of Yellow Submarine aside from the actual song.

    And maybe Hey Bulldog.

    After some thought, I would have to say the US Release of Help! Is the worst one. I just cant get in to the US release. Its missing some of my favourite Beatles songs.

    Yellow Submarine wasn't an album, it was a soundtrack.

    Also, their worst album is hands down With The Beatles.

    I can't really say which album is the worst because each one has at least one song I love.

    I guess the least memorable one to me is A Hard Day's Night.

    Instead then focusing on the negative, how about focusing on the positive?
    Whats the best album?

    even though the White album has been said to be "overkill" and "not the best example of their skills as a band", I personally think it's the most insightful work they did. It's a mammoth album that doesn't cease to be powerful.

    White Album is amazing indeed, Helter Skelter and While My Guitar Gently Weeps are on my list of best Beatles songs. But for me Magical Mystery Tour and Help! are tied for first place with Rubber Soul and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band tied for 2nd. Its very hard for me to choose one album since I like one of them pretty much equally as much as the next. And listen to them depending on the mood im in.

    I read somewhere that the experience of LOVE was like the Beach Boys' Smile record, that's why I heard it. It's really amazing what they did.

    I enjoy this album a bunch.

    Rock Island Line, Wings, and Samba are definitely my favorites.

    Overall I really like this album, there's really anything I can really say I didn't like. Although I'm not too sure how I feel about the re-recording of Step Lightly. I really love that song and I feel like the re-recording changed a bit too much, but overall it's not too bad. But it's like the saying goes, "If it ain't broke don't fix it.".


    I'd have to give this one an 8.75 out of 10. It's a really good album but seeing as there's only 9 songs, which is still a lot seeing as he's going on 72, and a few of them are covers/re-recordings anything higher than that seems like a bit much. It was worth the wait and I'm incredibly excited to (hopefully) see some of these live when he (hopefully) tours the US this summer.

    That's my opinion of it.

    Edited:

    Wow automerge just stop working after 18 hours you can't be trusted.

    My brother just showed me the musical Across the Universe. It was horrible, turned it off within the first 5 minutes. They just butchered the songs in my opinion. Helter Skelter was cringe worthy. I am usually a fan of musicals but this was horrible.

    I have a lot of love for Across the Universe, actually. (sans Helter Skelter. I agree, that's one of the worst covers I've ever heard) But the movie itself is fantastic, I think.

    Also I love Jim Sturgess.

    I don't hate Dana Fuchs. I think she has a gorgeous voice and did fantastic covers in Don't Let Me Down and Oh Darling! but Helter Skelter is just one of those songs that is exceedingly hard to cover properly and she just didn't have the proper voice for it.
