Calling them “magazines” is quite a stretch.

Who cares about The Beatles’ “Love”? It’s just a bunch of stupid remixes. Come on, iTunes!

The Beatles “Love” album isn’t remixes…. they’re enhanced versions of the old songs no more mono and some are live. I hope they have some kind of package deal.

There are one or two really crappy remixes, but yeah, most of it’s remastered. Some things are changed on a couple of the songs too. It’s actually pretty good, better than I was expecting.

And The Beatles remastered is awesome.

Your comment and others in the “Reviews” section of iTunes annoys me. Why are you blaming iTunes for the content? If Apple had their way, I’m sure they would put everything from every artist on iTunes. Whatever is or is not on iTunes is a directly because the label and artist agreed to allow iTunes to sell it. So quit complaining.

(I bet you’re also the same person who is ALWAYS complaining about the pricing structure, another peeve of mine.)
