    I love the Beatles. My friend got me into them when I was in junior high, been a fan ever since. I prefer their later stuff over the early stuff though. My favorite song is "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds."

    So is anyone buying either of the box sets? Or any of the remastered albums or rock band?

    I'm not a rock band fan, but the videos look incredible. The game follows the Beatles through their career starting at the Cavern Club through Abbey Road Studios. Once the band is in the studio, there's all these visual representations of how the band interprets the song (I read an interview in Game-Informer where Paul/Yoko/Ringo etc decided what would go on screen).

    I haven't had a video game since Atari 2600, so I don't know anything about that, lol. Video games are not my thing.

    I REALLY, REALLY want the mono box set. I've got two of the Stereo remastered albums already -- Revolver and The White Album -- and have listened to them. They are superb. I would love to get Rock Band, but, sadly, I have a PS2 and not a Wii, PS3 or Xbox.

Most of the reviews I've read say that Mono is better because it's the quality that George Martin used and put much time and energy in, opposed to stereo, which was in its infancy stages and mixed by George's underlings. And that the Beatles mixed them in Mono, so that's how they're supposed to sound, and therefore the closest representation to what took place in the studio. Do you agree w/ any of this, or do you think it's just music snobbery and that the two mixes sound the same (or do you prefer stereo?). I've read a few comments @ amazon's boards preferring one over the other, and countless mono-fans swearing by mono.

    i've listened to mixes on youtube and mono sounded better, but it wasn't an official mix (i think the user was 'theonebeatle' who posted/mixed them; not quite sure how one does that). i've tried finding posts of the 09 remasters of the same song to compare, but accuracy is very difficult because different people post them, which may affect the sound. anyways any thoughts on the subject?
    Oh, and on this, the first four albums had only been released on mono only and had not been released on stereo until now. The albums from Yellow Submarine all the way to Let It Be were released in stereo only because that was the only one they were recorded on. The others had been recorded on both stereo and mono prior to those. But, the four new songs on the Yellow Submarine songtrack are in the mono box set in the "Mono Masters" set. Some songs, once you listen to them, you can determine were either "made for mono," "made for stereo," or sound good on both. You can definitely hear instruments better on the stereo versions, and everything seems pretty balanced for the most part.

    One of my friends suggest me buying Sergent Pepper Lonely Heart Club Band (?) (weird name ^). But I've come across a lot bunch of ppl who say Sergent Pepper is far from their best album and one of the most overrated album ever, they say Revolver (?) should take its place. I think I should get some advice from you ^^. Thanks in advance for any recommendations.
    the Beatles! sounds like a thread for me lil Lennon's girlll! :lol: My favs is the white album. definitely. I also luv revolver and the abbey road. sgt pepper has high notes in my heart. somany of them. I would not suggest any on 'the best of', tho. the ones I luv the most are not so well known...

    They have a new box set out, but it's way too much money for me at this point.

    you have the Stereo remastered ones???? OoOoOoOoO what is the quality? How do you like it? Please share your opinion... I've seen some in the shop, but wasn't sure if I want to buy them (I have old ones) and can't afford just buying anything I want :lol: so I would luv to know the opinions about remastered ones...

    o :lol: I see that you've already posted your opinion! Thank you for saying that... I will needto go to the shop and listen to it first. Yeah, just like Earth Song, can afford all this stuff right now... but I hope I will at some point!

    I've got the White Album and Revolver. I kept on switching the CDs after every song to make my comparisons -- I took notes! lol

    "Tomorrow Never Knows" is one of THE BEST remastered songs. And the whole White Album is so much louder (as is every other album) and clearer and you can hear everything...and I mean EVERYTHING! I've heard that Revolver is the best remastered album from a lot of people...we'll see, once I make more purchases and comparisons.

    I'm a Beatle freak!!! :P


    EDIT: I'm a college student, so I'm watching what I buy. And my dad keeps saying that he doesn't know if they're gonna get me the mono box set because they have other bills to pay along with paying my tuition AND my brother's tuition. BUT, it's cheaper to buy the remastered stereo albums separately instead of in the box set. I have pics of the albums I got -- I took pics of the covers, insides, booklets and CDs. If you would like to see them, I can PM you the link!

    I sort of have the same dilemma concerning Mono Vs Stereo.I hear wonderful things about the mono boxset & it seems to be the one that most Beatles fans are chamioning as the better set.But on the other hand I'm not a complettist or hardcore enough to the point where I'd have to own everything.i.e both sets.
    I have a few Beatles best ofs & grew up with my parents owning the vinyls.I have always held off buying their catolag because I always found it too expensive to buy the albums seperately & I always wanted to buy it in one swoop rather than building it over a long period.
    For those reasons I'm gonna go with the stereo set plus the fact that it includes all the albums including the latter albums which are IMO the better albums.If your gonna fork out that kind of money you might aswell have everything & I've noticed the mono set in some places is more expensive.
    In all theres give & take for both formats & positive arguments for both mono & stereo.I was never hung up on mono though so it'll be the complete stereo boxset for me.
    Not that I can afford this right now.
