Review by: MrBeatlegOn 15 Aug 2005 at 01:56 CEST
An EXCELLANT remix of this album. Nice job guys. My hat is off to all involved.
Review by: r willisOn 22 Aug 2005 at 16:50 CEST
Well,at first i was against all the remix discs out there.Sorda like tampering with sacred scrolls(lol) but i have to admit after opening or altering my mind a bit i have found a lot of them fun to give a chane.This one i dearly enjoy.But this is just a opinion as The Walrus says"everybody's got one"
Review by: mackOn 23 Aug 2005 at 21:59 CEST
This is an excellent album, you may never want to listen to the original version again!
Review by: oobuOn 31 Aug 2005 at 00:29 CEST
I loved the updated version of The End! My favorite track.
Excellant! Kudos to all involved.
Review by: oldclevelandboyOn 14 Oct 2005 at 23:26 CEST
I only listen to this version!! The End and Oh! Darling is worth the price of admission!!!!
Review by: Dan RyanOn 29 Oct 2005 at 07:09 CEST
Great stuff. Forget about the original releases. This is the way that Lennon and Harrison would want you to hear the Beatles.
Review by: RapillardOn 26 Nov 2005 at 20:01 CEST
Excellent - j'adore ! superbe version remixée d'Abbey Road - les BRG se sont surpassés - depuis que j'ai eu ce disque je n'écoute plus que cette version de ABBEY ROAD - elle est fantastique - je recommande vivement le final et "Oh Darling" ainsi que "Come Together" : GENIAL !
Review by: loboOn 16 Jan 2006 at 17:19 CEST
Sorry, but cannot agree with the other reviewers (and I like remixing!). Some songs (The End, Oh Darling) are really good. The rest is interesting but not essential. At times (Come together) the sloppy editing affects the listening pleasure.

If you want an excellent mashed-up Beatles album go for "Revolved", if you want a good sounding Abbey Road go for Toshiba CD or MS needle-drop. If you want a fun Abbey Road, this one won't hurt you.

SOME WORK WELL I.E COME TOGETHER ,OCTOPUS GARDER,MUSTARD AND PAM AND AGAIN SOME DO NOT BUT WORTHWHILE TO HAVE...........
Review by: TheLazenbyOn 06 Jul 2006 at 22:45 CEST
A terrible mess, and a very uneven one at that. Some tracks are awesome, and some are just pure destruction.

1) Come Together - much more mellow than the album version, but the editing is disgraceful. Has possibility of being a very good remix, with a more careful hand. [5/10]

2) Something - nothing to complain about here... a pleasant enough stereo remix. [8/10]

3) Maxwell's Silver Hammer - no direction at all; just another reason why seeing the name "Terminus J. Threnody" makes me flinch. [2/10]

4) Oh! Darling - doesn't hold together as a coherent version, but a fun listen nonetheless, combining various outtakes with the commercial version. [5/10]

5) Octopus's Garden - a simple remix, giving Ringo's vocals a watery, echoey effect. Surprisingly effective. [9/10]

6) I Want You - four minutes of pure static, as if the remixer was trying to turn this masterpiece into "Sister Ray". Horrendous and painful, though the attempt to make a proper ending is interesting. [2/10]

7) Here Comes The Sun - a stereo remix, missing some elements of the album version to make for a slightly simpler song. Pleasant, having almost a 70's Beach Boys feel about it. [9/10]

8) Because - another miss... the remixer attempted to mix different parts of the song with each other, and they just sound out-of-sync, and as though they're constantly stepping over each other. Again, could've been better. [4/10]

9) You Only Give Me Your Money - a marathon extended version, mixing the "good children" vocals over the cropped jam-session ending. It's alright, but the looped vocals at the end tend to get very out of synch. [7/10]

10) Sun King - Terminus must've made this; long, meandering, and sometimes sloppy. [3/10]

11) Mean Mr. Mustard - YES! F**KING BRILLIANT! This combines the demo with the album version. Absolutely wonderful. [10/10]

12) Polythene Pam - And we go into another pit. An attempt to make the demo sound trance-y and psychedelic. [2/10]

13) She Came In Through The Bathroom Window - No direction, and the beginning is utterly painful. The almost acoustic body of the song sounds nice, however. [6/10]

14) Golden Slumbers - like Because, this mixes similar parts of the song with each other. Works well enough, but can be distracting. The main part ("Golden slumbers fill your eyes") is heavenly. [7/10]

15) Carry That Weight - an attempt to use part of "Money" to make a full ending. Not perfect, but enjoyable. [8/10]

16) The End - a shorter version of the rambling "Natural E" mix. Some parts work, but some parts just don't mesh at all. Luckily, they cut out some of the more horrendous parts, so that boosts the score a little. [7/10]

17) Her Majesty - bizarre. Just bizarre. [2/10]

18) What's This One Called, John? - WTF? Pointless. [0/10]

19) The Ballad Of John And Yoko - almost sounds like an acoustic demo, and sounds nice enough. Loses a couple points for being incomplete, however. [7/10]

20) Ain't She Sweet - I won't rate this, because it's just the OOPS of the Anthology mix; nice enough though, but not a true 'remix'.

21) Old Brown Shoe - a cool stereo remix with slight elements of the demo if you listen closely. Can't complain, really. [9/10]

That gives a final score of 112/200, or a 56%.

"Mean Mr. Mustard" and "Carry That Weight" are worth finding, but I'm definitely dreading their "White Album" remix.
Review by: bagofsoupOn 17 Jul 2006 at 01:44 CEST
This is a really fun collection made by fellow fans. It is done with great reverence and creativity! I find myself with this disc in my player more often than many true "Beatlegs!"

Recommended!
Review by: AudioarchivistOn 30 Oct 2007 at 02:34 CEST
Yeah, it's a hit and miss affair, depending on your status as a fan...
The casual fan might not appreciate what went into the making of these tracks. Maybe they ought to stick to the albums. Musicians, recording engineers, diehard fans that collect mono versions and obscure tracks that know the sounds inside and out will truly appreciate what has been done. Hardcore bootleg collectors that are finding they have the core collection now and still want more might like these differences, too.
Personally I like listening to something a bit different for a change from the regular albums. How many times do you need to hear the exact same versions of the same songs you can hear on the radio? Bootlegs are cool, but ultimately limited to what was done way back then, and not every track has a bootleg - yet!
It's kinda cool to make something new out of something old. George and Giles Martin had some ideas they presented, but they barely scratched the surface. There is so much more re-creative work that could be done. I'm looking foreward to the day they release multitrack versions for remixers to play with. Can you imagine some interface to let you mix on the fly on the HD-DVD-A of the future? Maybe it could be a recording engineer training tool...
I'm sure that if we outlive ourselves, we'll be talking about The Beatles in 200 years from now. Bach. Beethoven. Beatles. This kind of stuff will keep us talking about them for generations.

Brilliant! Some guys with Pro Tools and a lot of time on their hands! Some songs work better than others but very interesting work. I loved it!

When I was told about this CD - I was told I would not be disappointed. I must say it is even better than I expected. Some of the mixes are so good - you would think it were done by the Beatles themselves. It kinda makes you wonder if they would have had the technology back then that we have today - Is this what some of the songs may have evolved into??? Some of the reviews have been critical of the CD - I say it is worth a listen. I bet you will listen to it over and over... and I bet you will be happy you did.
