This is a fine collection of Beatles songs interpreted by some of hard rock's finest musicians including all 3 members of Motörhead, Alice Cooper, Billy Idol, Steve Stevens, Billy F. Gibbons (ZZ Top) and many more.

I've never been much of a Beatles fan myself as I've always found their productions way to clean and not dirty and raw enough. But it can't be argued that they wrote some great melodies and what the hardrockers do on this compilation is to kick some extra power (and screamin' guitars) into many of the songs.

The end result is 12 enjoyable tracks and absolutely one of the better tribute albums I've heard in a long while.
