What do you think of the Cirque Du Soleil "Love" Album? I have it and think it's great. the beginning for "Get Back" is really cool.

I love the Octopus's Garden beginning, and I also love the Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!/Helter Skelter/I Want You (She's So Heavy) mix, and of course the While My Guitar Gently Weeps version.

Oh yeah! I completely forgot about the Octopus's Garden beginning! With the "Good Night" instrumental it really sounds like a children's song.

The 'Love' Album is a nice addition to their catalog. It makes all the songs sound so fresh and alive again. Giles Martin did an excellent job with the mixing. I only wish 'Help' was mixed differently. It sounds too much like the original version.

Unbelievably fantastic album, I agree with paulsbass that it almost brought new life to me as a Beatles fan.

My favorite song would be Eleanor Rigby/Julia, the guitar from Julia always makes me feel like I'm swimming.

The Love story has to be about John Lennon, I mean we hear the guitar from Julia immediately followed by police sirens...or maybe I'm just looking into it too much.

Yeah, I have to agree with you about "Help!" sounding too much like the original. 

 

I love the ending of "All You Need Is Love." It sounds like an ending should. It just sounds...conclusive.

@GniknuS Sorry, I can't quote on my iPod, but I also thought that Love was about John, the whole Julia and then sirens part and more. Maybe it is.

Well, I don't think it's an "excuse." I personally love the album. As you said, it wasn't intended to replace the originals. I mean, was Revolver intended to replace Rubber Soul or even With the Beatles? It's not the same thing as the originals because the Beatles themselves aren't performing the songs, but I think it's a brilliant idea. 

If I seem to act unkind, it's only me, it's not my mind that is confusing things.

Those two make my day. Every day. I can't get enough of it.

I salute the lady who screamed "I love you Paul!" at a tribute band's concert.

I have really been listening to Love on YouTube for a few days, and blimey, what an album.

Better than the originals: I Am The Walrus, Come Together, Get Back, probably Here Comes The Sun (minus The Inner Light). Within You Without You/Tomorrow Never Knows is phenomenal as well, and so is Eleanor Rigby. There aren't any bad tracks or ones that don't do the originals justice, but there are some that are too similar to the originals, like Revolution, Help!, and A Day In The Life.

And I neeeeeeeeed her all the time

I especially love the ending for All You Need Is Love. It brings a smile to my face every time I hear it. And the shorter version of Hey Jude, how it cuts off some of the instruments for a little bit is just awesome. Have any of you heard The Fool On The Hill ITunes special? I love that version. Anyways, this album just awesome.
