I'm glad the topic of The Beatles Love came up on these boards. When I heard about this album, it sounded like the biggest, most sacrilegious pile of shit. Then, on a whim, I bought it last Tuesday.

All I know is that it's HIS money. He earned it. She doesn't need 1 billion pounds to raise a kid.

I think What's the Story Morning Glory is a very good album, and one Hebrew Hammer will be surprised with (Hebrew Hammer, my apologies for addressing you in third person, but I thought it proper seeing as these are public boards).

Great outtakes from my all-time favorite record. Lovely.

I actually have "Thin Wild Mercury Music" and my version (God knows what generation it is -- 40th?) doesn't sound as good as these MP3s. Fucking bootlegs.

Hey, I for one haven't heard the Paris Hilton album. Has anybody else on these boards?

I was pleasantly shocked when I heard a few Shakira albums (no joke, no irony intended).

This is wild. All Music Guide gave it a steller review (4 1/2 stars).
