Great cd, but it leaves you wanting the "real" thing.

I love this cd. The covers are beautifully done and subtle- especially Sarah McLachlan's "Blackbird" and Ben Folds "Golden Slumbers". Even the unknown artists on the cd put in some great covers. I think the only song that disappointed me was Nick Cave's version of "Let it Be" (WHAT were they thinking?) I just don't get the whole Nick Cave thing in general, so maybe I am missing something...
However, nothing can be as good as the Beatles' versions of these songs. After listening to the cd for a few days, I pulled out my Beatles collection and had a great time listening to it all.
Like most soundtracks, it gets old after a while. However, it's upbeat, great for mixes, and a good listen. It's worth having, even if you won't have it in your cd player for days on end.
