Is The New Beatles Album The Most Pointless Compilation Ever?
The Guardian reports that a 14 track compilation called 'Tomorrow Never Knows' is to be sold via iTunes, with no physical release planned, and the LP features no unreleased tracks, no re-works and no re-masters. Put simply it's the most pointless greatest hits of all time. In fact the only thing it has going for it is the fact that the price of it is about half of what it would cost to buy all of the songs on it individually.
In an attempt to gloss it up a bit, iTunes have quoted a handful of well known rockers to pass on their thoughts on The Beatles. "There is a straight line from James Brown to death metal, and it runs through Helter Skelter," said Arcade Fire's Win Butler. "I've always thought of them as heavy. It's the edge in the voice." FOO FIGHTERS' DAVE GROHL, meanwhile, said he "would not be a musician . if it weren't for the Beatles . Over the years I have drowned myself in the depth of their catalogue. Their groove and their swagger. Their grace and their beauty. Their dark and their light." What a momentous occasion.
