QuoteI remember this being discussed before....there are some really funny mp3's with "Beatles-songs with a Metallica twist".....can be downloaded here:http://music.metafilter.com/index.php?q=f&f=%2FBeatallica
QuoteEarly to mid 60's the Stones were the band that your parents hated, whilst the Beatles were portrayed as good, home lovin, innocents (yes we all know that to be nonsense, but still). The Stones were real rock n roll, the Kinks wrote better songs and Bill Haley et al actually changed music before the Beatles.
QuoteThe amount of rubbish they produced is always ignored or called "genius" or "before it's time". MMT is indulgence - first concept album, first vanity project. The White Album is actually unlistenable. The dreamy hippy drug stuff is better done by the REAL hippies and many of the lyrics are twee and embarrasing.
QuoteHowever, I cannot deny they way that they tapped into the psyche of a generation, in the same way that the Sex Pistols, Nirvana and Oasis also did in later decades. Despite their limitations, they came to define everything about the decade and have been credited, very unfairly, with being responsible for the huge societal change of the time.
Quote70's rock rules!!!
QuoteWell, that says it all really lol Without the Beatles, '70s rock would be unrecognisable as we know it today, if it even existed.
QuoteThe White Album is actually unlistenable.
QuoteYou're quite wrong there. I'm listening to it right now actually.
QuoteActually I really like Revolution 9. It's not a piece of music, but it is a rather captivating sound collage .. it has a really profound cinematic effect, for me anyway - it paints fascinating mental images.It does sound out of place on there, though, granted. It doesn't do anything for the album as a whole.
QuoteThe question is what would you leave of it to cut it down to the then maximum running time of around 45 minutes?
QuoteA good question, and one that's in discussion here
