The review of The Beatles by Piero in the first post is blatant self promotion. Critics have to be critics to make a writing job for themselves. That's OK as everyone needs to eat. Still to realize that here at Head-Fi we now have kids who were not even around at the time of The Beatles shirt-tail onto such a farce and try to explain how they even have a real-life concept of what they are talking about is just silly. Most posts here condemning the Beatles suffer from a very commen form of self importance. That's OK too as music is a personal thing which everyone enjoys in their own small way. The truth is the impact they made will not even be able to be judged for another 50 years. The myopic view is still blurry as the nuclear bomb The Beatles detonated is still exploding out. Still a thread like this is good fun, close to troll thread in concept it sells lots of web page advertising for Head-Fi. So it's all good, unless you choose to believe it as fact.
