Product Description:

Similar, in some senses, to the 2002 soundtrack to I Am Sam, which compiled newly made Beatles covers, 2005's Revolution: A Rock Tribute to the Beatles finds versions of the Fab Four's songs that have already been out and collects them onto one succinct disc. Fiona Apple is the most contemporary of all the artists on the album, not that it really matters, however, because the Beatles' work is timeless enough to sound good in almost any era, which means that Hooters take on "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds," Kansas' "Eleanor Rigby," and the Thompson Twins' "Revolution" are all pretty decent. Harry Nilsson's addition, "You Can't Do That" is actually ten Beatles' songs in one, and works great with the rest of the record, as does the Jeff Healey's super bluesy version of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" (not that it wasn't bluesy before but Healey really accentuates it). All in all, Revolution is not a bad choice for a Beatles' cover album, although of course, as in most cases, the originals are all still better. ~ Marisa Brown
