Depending on your level of Beatlemania, the Beatles' U.S. albums are either a lasting corporate scar on the group's legacy or beloved nostalgic artifacts tailored for a specific marketplace. Capitol Records are hoping it's the latter with its 13-disc box set 'The U.S. Albums.'

'High Hopes' is Bruce Springsteen's most disjointed album, and purposely so. Pulled together from various outtakes, cover songs and re-recordings from the past two decades, Springsteen's 18th album is looser and less structurally sound than anything he's released since becoming a star in the mid '70s.
