Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this soundtrack is from the Nickelodeon Big Time Movie featuring the popular Nick boy band Big Time Rush in a Beatles'-inspired British Invasion flick that has the boys singing six of the original Fab Four's most-loved songs from their early career.

What's the story?

Popular Nickelodeon boy band Big Time Rush take their TV show across the pond to the U.K. in their made-for-TV film, Big Time Movie. The mop-haired foursome pay homage to the The Beatles in the BIG TIME MOVIE SOUNDTRACK, singing six Beatles favorites, including "Help," "I Wanna Hold Your Hand," and "Can't Buy Me Love."

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

It's hard to replicate something that's already good, but Big Time Rush does a solid job with their updated versions of some of the most-loved tunes from the early Beatles. They manage to sound just enough like John, Paul, George, and Ringo to make the covers legit, but also give the songs a unique, modern twist, especially on "We Can Work It Out." Whether you're a lifelong Beatles fan or the child or grandchild of one, you'll enjoy singing along to these enduring tunes.

The beatles were drug addicted satanists.I have nothing against rock and pop but don't bother. Buy something like Family Force 5 or Skillet for better music.

Sure it's all positive but I really hate BTR. They are annoying and I can't stand them. So there you go.
