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.

I've only heard a few of the songs off of Love, but personally I prefer the songs the way they were.

I prefer the originals as well, but it is nice to hear something different now and then.

Pretty much my go to album for long drives, especially for interviews across town. It just makes me happy and calms my nerves.

I like to play it when I go to bed because it's a great selection of great songs, instead of a whole album or shuffle. it makes me very happy and at peace.

I like it .. and I'm glad most others seem to too.

No harm in 'upgrading' as long as it's done tastefully..

 

now who remembers 'Stars on 45' from the 80s ??? a-hard-days-night-ringo-6

Love is a great excuse to get a "new" product out on the market. It never will, or was intended to, replace the originals.

I tried to think of something powerful and moving… and failed.  "You were given a choice between war and dishonor - you chose dishonor, and you shall have war" - Winston Churchill

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 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.

Love's a great album, my favorite song on it would be While My Guitar Gantly Weeps and that's my favorite!
