Opinions? The music and the concept? Believable or not?

I listened to Four Guys. It's an ok remix. I'm checking the other tracks.

 

I noticed something. The guy's name is James Richards. a-hard-days-night-paul-5a-hard-days-night-ringo-12

 

And something that doesn't ring true… George and Paul working together in a song?? LOL!!!!

I know it's fake, and a mix of all their hits, but still… The music is reaaaally good. IMO, of course.

Exactly! It's just weird that the person who did it couldn't just say that they remixed it, and tried to make a pass at "going back in time".

Haha, well, I know. He just said that he was going under that, also. But still…fake…

Haha, I think Paul was too proud for that.

I heard "Four Guys" before I heard Band on the Run so to me it sounded awesome. Then I listened to Band on the Run and thought, "Actually the real is one is a lot better."

But you want a really good Beatles remix album I would suggest "The Grey Album" by DJ Danger Mouse. It's basically the acapella tracks of Jay-Z's Black Album mashed together with bits of the White Album. Not for people who aren't fans of Hip Hop however.

You all will have read that Dave Dee is no longer with us. But Mickey and Titch and I would like to carry on the good work that's always gone down in number two.

The whole concept is interesting but obviously fake, however it's a nice idea to think that in an alternate universe ,The Beatles are still making music.

I think the remixes are nice. My cousin showed me The Grey Album, and though I don't like rap, it was interesting to see him try and guess the Beatles song in the background.

I agree.
I've made a playlist with songs for my imaginary album "Imagine" (released in late 1970/early 1971 in an paralel universe):

  1. Imagine (John)
  2. Child Of Nature (earlier version of I'm a Jealous Guy – John)
  3. My Sweet Lord (George)
  4. Junk (Paul)
  5. Gimme Some Truth (John)
  6. Working Class Heo (John)
  7. Teddy Boy (Paul
  1. Isn't It a Pity (George)
  2. Every Night (Paul)
  3. Instant Karma! (John)
  4. Maybe I'm Amazed (Paul)
  5. All Things Must Pass (George)
Sont des mots qui vont très bien ensemble.

Just had another listen to this album. Four Guys is fairly good, but the "long time ago when we was BAND ON THE RUN" bit doesn't work.

What is Talking To Myself composed of? I recognise Admiral Halsey, but bizarrely not the John or George songs- I'm guessing John's is from Walls And Bridges?

Days Like These, Over The Ocean, I'm Just Sitting Here and Sick To Death were let down by the backing tracks, which don't fit at all.

Actually, I quite like it. It is mesmerising, and one of the most ambitious sounding "Beatles" albums. Whilst it doesn't make sense (how has John written a segment of Nobody Told Me?) and the mashups aren't always smooth, I wish they had released something like this album.

That would surely make for an incredible album, has anyone here read the Fixing A Hole series? it`s about some imaginary beatles albums and tour that happened between 1970-2008, it' about 14 chapters.

Here is the first entry in the series

The intresting part is that most of the time i checked back a new chapter was added,but now it's finished.

Conceptually, musically, artistically a resounding… failure. As I type this, I realise why they broke up. They couldn't work together. Or, as this shows, neither do their songs. I meant to type this when I listened to it in May, and it is aggravating. (Oh, and any attempts to create a 1970/1971 album need to take into consideration that songs were inspired by the break up. Therefor those songs can't be on a Beatles album.)

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

I love all the remixes, though they sound modern. 

I like his story, too. Though, it's obviously phoney.

And none of I Me Mine's selection were songs inspired by the break up. None of John's primal songs (except possibly Working Class Hero), no Too Many People, no Wah-Wah.

Hard to say what songs would NOT have been written without the breakup.

Certainly "How do you sleep?"

"Too many people" would have had different lyrics.

Imagining the next Beatle album is nearly irresistible. 

My book is a serious history book, but a couple of pages from the end I can't help but "imagine" the next album. My list is similar to I Me Mine's above, but I think you have to throw in a Ringo song:

Side 1: Maybe I'm Amazed, Imagine, My Sweet Lord, Every Night, Jealous Guy/Child Of Nature, Junk.

Side 2: All Things Must Pass, Give Me Some Truth, You're Sixteen, Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey, Another Day, Instant Karma.

 

Or maybe a double album?

In any case, you could argue that it would have been up there with their best.
