I feel like I'm sitting in with the four (five) of them.

Beautiful...and I loved the original. But now I can really hear them playing and with the strings and effects brought down I feel like they are playing live right in front of me. It has the same intimacy as Rubber Soul and Revolver.

Its OK

I must admit the songs do sound better than the original release but I dont think its worth the amount of money wanted for it. Unless you really want it of course. The excellent song "Dont let me down" isnt available on many other CD's so thats one good thing. Its about...

Its about time that Capitol records comes out with a collection of Beatles singles on a few discs so all the single that are harder to get on the albums would be in one place.

    Not as good as the original.

    Stick to the original album. The Phil Spector version is far better than this reissue. Everything from the sound quality to the cover photos are better. I absolutely love the string arrangement on "The Long and Winding Road". Besides, if you have the "Beatles Antholgy Album Vol. 3" you already own the de-spectorized version of this song. Everything else sounds pretty much the same albeit in inferior sound. If you're looking for a GREAT new Beatles album, I highly recommend "Love" over this release.

    All they need is cash

    One more milking of the Beatles' cash cow... The differences between this and the original (legit) Let It Be are so subtle it's meaningless (been a serious guitar hobbyist for 30+years)... Actually, I prefer the original over this. There's nothing particularly revealing in this new "official" version. Anyone looking for more "raw" performances of this material probably would do better with any of the bootleg versions!

    Naked.......Not worth it

    I heard the "Naked" album last weekend and all I could think of was here is just another attempt by the surviving Beatles to make some extra Christmas money. Don't get me wrong, I am, and will always be, one of their biggest fans. My God, the Beatles changed my life. I wouldn't be the musician I am today without their influence. But this to me is just another way to rip us Beatle lovers off. Sorry. I loved the original Let It Be album. Strings and all.

    Let It Be... Naked

    I like revised music as much as I enjoy artificial stereo, colorized movies, artificial sweeteners, and sex using condoms. I had already decided I didn't like this revisionist CD when I read it was coming out. I won't even listen to it. It will sell, but it will be as endearing as the YELLOW SUBMARINE SONGTRACK.

    Put some clothes on this one!

    Let It Be was a fine album in its own right. Phil Spector's production actually shone some light into the half-baked songs (particularly The Long And Winding Road). Here, the mess that became Let It Be is even worse. All the funny dialog between the Beatles? Gone! Any hopes of hearing some unreleased songs extracted straight from the vaults? Eighty-sixed! Fully-finished songs in their entirety? Adios! The happiness of Beatles fans like me? See ya! What's more, the brainchild behind the project was Paul McCartney. It's bad enough he listed the credits as "McCartney/Lennon", but now he wants Let It Be to sound the way he wanted to, with a raw sound. That "bonus" disc offers no heart in the project, since all it basically is is little annoying snippets of songs. They should recall this CD and replace it with Get Back...the great lost album that Let It Be should have been.

    Let It Be... Naked

    I'm shrugging my shoulders. Why bother coming out with a "stripped 6" version of this album? Who cares? I surely don't. If they wanted to come out with something worthwhile, why not release the movie, "Let It Be" on VHS and DVD? That, of course, will never happen because Sir Paul doesn't want to be shown as the guy who stabbed his best friend in the back... the friend who'd be dead 11 years later.
