I can imagine Todd's review... But then again, I could be wrong.

Paul can't sing.

This song bores me.

The only good thing about this song is (as an example...) the piano playing.

Etc., etc., etc.

We know how you probably feel Todd.

I am going to start calling you Robert Hilburn. If you don't know who he is look it up.

And yes many of his critiques read like yours Todd.

BTW, I hope you know Todd that this is all with tongue firmly planted in cheek.

Ok, I just listened to this cd today and well, i'm disappointed, upset, and a little p*ssed off. I'm not saying this is a bad cd, but I dont think its for me. The first thing that really p*ssed me off was the constant treble hiss. There's a microphone, channel, port, whatever thats hissing throughout the entire cd. Not just one song, but all of them. At first I thought it was the snare wires vibrating in a bad way, but it wasnt. I then thought it might be the brush work from the drummer, but that wasnt it either. I'm not sure what it is, but it goes away when that mic (whatever) is turned off. It happens on every song. There will be the hiss and then on one part of the song, it quits and then starts again. I cant listen to the cd without concentrating on that.

My second issue is, well I cant lie, it bores me to death. The songs are all done well and Pauls sounds good, but its just not for me. Slipping my wife a roofie is about as romantic as I get, but if I were to ever be in the mood, I have tons of easy jazz and crooner stuff thats better than this. I'm kind of mad that I even spent money on this especially when I was kind of excited to hear it. Oh well, i'm not saying this CD is bad, but i'm going to quietly slip this on the shelf right beside Macca 2 and the Firemen projects. Unless there's a serious review of the songs, I doubt i'll ever listen to it again.

Tkitna, at least you gave it a good listen, keep listening it may grow on you.

That hiss you hear is indeed the brushes from the drummer, it has been debated in full on the Steve Hoffman forums, and it is the drummers brushes.

Throw me a link to that conversation. I want to see what they are saying. Thanks.

Maybe this is all a review of your reviews.

I think I will start a new topic:

Todd Under the Microscope: His reviews

There is little about this Todd's reviews I like. A total waste of time. Occasionally there is something positive. He probably should have left this opinion out and left it on the cutting room floor. Good spelling though. Nothing about his reviews drives me to read them again. They will probably sit in the old posts, never to be read again.

I don't think so, I look forward to your reviews, they provide a grounded version that isn't afraid to be tough.  Too much fluff in the world.

Well done Gary.  ha2ha

Now who is this fellow that submits these unbiased, brutally honest reviews? I'd like to read more.  ;D

It is considerably harder for me to be unbiased about The Beatles.

I guess it is sort of like being unbiased about the family you love. If I was to give a review of your kids, you probably would not feel the same. You probably would come to their defense (and you should), even if your "review" is biased. The Beatles have done a lot for me. I can't even tell the times that their music has been there for me. I know that they don't personally know about this, and it is doubtful that they ever would, or even care to. I still have that affection and it is now built in to me. Listening to The Beatles is kind of a "safety zone" for me. Maybe even an escape.

At times it was this album, or at this time it was that album. So it is with great affection that I am biased.

Tkitna, it's nothing specific, it was just part of the general conversation on the Steve Hoffman forums under the title Kisses On The Bottom, just go to the Steve Hoffman website.

Dare I say Gary that your point of view on your bias we've all shared at some point, but usually with "outsiders" or "non-believers" of all things Beatles.  It is interesting that within these hollowed grounds there are still significant and different "levels" of bias.  It surprised me a little bit but I get it.
