CD Reviews

One of the greatest Rock'n'Roll Albums, ever !
D. Christen | Rushville, IN United States | 03/04/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This soundtrack is unbelievable. It shows, that great music never gets old. All these Rock'n'Roll classics are performed in a fast and furious way without ever disrespecting the original composition or arrangement. Dave Grohl, Mike Mills, Thurston Moore, Gregg Dulli and Dave Pirner must have had a ball recording this session and it shows. The production is simply timeless and no matter if you were around when the Beatles first played these tracks in a dirty basement in Hamburg or you just came across this soundtrack because you like Nirvana, Foo Fighters, REM, Afghan Wings or Soul Asylum, you will be blown away by this short and sweet collection of gems."
You can't lose it.

"This is the soundtrack to a movie about the Beatles early years working in Hamburg, Germany. Actually, it's more about the friendship between John Lennon and Stuart Sutcliffe, and Stu's romance with Astrid Kirchherr (not Ashton Kutcher). Anyway, the album features cover versions of cover versions that the Beatles used to play back in the day. The songs are performed by contemporary rock musicians in a hopped-up style. Greg Dulli sings the "John Lennon" parts and Dave Pirner sings the "Paul McCartney" parts. There are far more songs sung by Dulli, since the movie is more John's story than Paul's. The songs are good cover versions of Little Richard, Larry Williams, Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran and etcetera songs. They don't sound anything like the Beatles, but it's still enjoyable. But I should probably point out that the CD is only 27 minutes long."
