Beatles Cash In On Your Memories

The Beatles Love mashup, is well fab. But it's a gimmick, isn't it? It takes your musical memories of the Beatles and makes you long for Abbey Road like genius. George Martin and his son add just enough different sounds to old faves that it'll keep your attention for a full hour. Does anyone remember Danger Mouse's Internet only Grey album from 2004 (mashing Jay Z with the White Album). Or RCA's remix of "Little Less Conversation"? I kept thinking about those listening to Love. Back to my first point. A gimmick's a gimmick, and Beatle fans will scoop this up. For our collections sure, but this won't be the one you'll pull out to convince the kids about their greatness. But it stokes our precious memories.
