They better put Paperback Writer, Ticket to Ride, If I Fell, Eight Days A Week, She Loves You, Roll Over Beethoven, Magical Mystery Tour, Come Together and Across The Universe in it. Otherwise it's good.

"...'All You Need Is Love' will be available to download exclusively from Xbox Live, with all proceeds donated to the Doctors Without Borders charity." It's unfortunate when charity becomes console exclusive.

Please let Abbey Road be compatible with the other Rock Bands as well!

Albums shouldn't be DLC, if it's the Beatles Game just give us all the songs.
