I acquired a copy of the latest Beatles album, Love, at the weekend.

For those who don't know, it's a whole host of well-known Beatles classics mashed together - so we get Within You Without You over the top of the drum loop from Tomorrow Never Knows, and other such combinations.

I've been a massive fan of The Beatles since I was 16, and I had doubts over this latest project - could George Martin and his son Giles pull it off without destroying the originals or have the new album become sacriligeous?

In short - they did it. It's clear that a great deal of time and love has gone into Love and I think that the album can stand comfortably beside the rest of The Beatles' recorded output.

OOOOH! I didn't get that they were mashed up. AWESOME, I want it now.

It is VERY good NC - well worth parting with some hard-earned cash. If you've got a home cinema system, get the two disc version - the second disc is mixed in Dolby 5.1 Surround Sound
