The attraction to the Anthology Collection is the use of alternative takes of old Beatles standards. While I have heard "Strawberry Fields" and "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away" countless times, these alternate takes are interesting because they make you listen carefully for any differences. The new song, "Real Love" has a serene feel that makes one wish they were still releasing albums to this day. On another note, however, the record doesn't bring much more than the same material we've all heard numerous times back to life, only in an incomplete form. I think highly of this record because I am a die hard Beatles enthusiast. But I only listened to it a few times because I was interested in how these takes differed from the ones placed on the U.K. official releases. "Anthology 2" is a nice collector's item for Beatleheads, but those interested in their hits should look into picking up "1" or even one of their classic U.K. releases such as "Revolver" or "Rubber Soul" first. If you want to hear "Free as a Bird," download it off the web.
