The Onion on the remasters

Writing for The Onion, the great Chuck Klosterman dissects the remasters in an alternately hilarious and somewhat annoying piece. Either way, it's refreshing to see that sacred cows don't always need to be treated as such.

My favorite line:
A concept album about finding a halfway decent song for Ringo, Sgt. Pepper has a few satisfactory moments (“Lovely Rita” totally nails the experience of almost having sex with a city employee), but this is only B+ work.

Now hitting on all 16 cylinders, the Beatles bolted back to the woodshed for The Beatles, a blandly designed masterwork that could inspire any reasonable citizen of California to launch a race war.

A band so obscure they aren't even on iTunes.
