2 stars This is a generally poor release, another attempt at milking more money out of the Beatles legend. Like the first reviewer, I fail to see the point of this release, if you're a seasoned fan of the Beatles and have all of their songs memorized, listening to these merged/mixed songs is really akward.

A prime example of this is track 10. Who ever thought of mixing Mr. Kite with She's So Heavy!? An attempt at pure boldness? It comes of horribly, the mystical child like Mr. Kite merges into the intense big pounding drama "riff" of She's So Heavy, and It's an embarrasing listen.

There's nothing special at all, the other tracks contain some moments of weirdness and a sense of things being misplaced, but the odd chance that something actually sounds good together is the second redeeming feauture of the release, next to the excellent production and remastering of the music. I wish they would do the Beatles catologue like this, the sound is superb.

If you're a mad beatles fan, this is worth picking up, but please don't get this album as a starter if you're a newbie, it will forever taint your perception of the original songs and their intended arrangements.
