4 Not perfect but the coolest album!diamondal | 12/10/2009 | See all diamondal's reviews (30)I remember buying the CD of this back in the late 80s and being disappointed with the tinny and thin sound of it. Thank God for this remaster! It rocks where it should rock and it has a much richer bottom end sound to it. I would say though, that most people won't notice the difference unless you have good quality audio equipment. In these days of Ipods who really cares?It is my favourite Beatles album even though it is definitely patchy for about a quarter of the album. I cannot define what I love about this album. Probably the sheer scope and variety of the tracks. You can hear the Beatles foreshadowing their solo years ahead. It is a fractured and imperfect album but it is endlessly fascinating and you need to have it in your CD collection, even if to play to people who do not realise just how edgy and experimental the Beatles could be. Of all their albums, I feel the White album is great because a lot of it has not really dated. I also enjoy the extremes of the tracks - from 'Blackbird' to 'Helter Skelter': you don't get more extreme than that!I will stop gushing now and just recommend that you buy this because it is the Beatles' coolest album too!
