Blogcritics Goodie Bag: Beatles, Jibbs, Taylor Hicks, Test Your Reflex, and UGK

After being asked by the remaining Beatles, Ringo and Paul, along with Yoko Ono Lennon and Olivia Harrison, to make experimental mixes from their master tapes for a collaboration with Cirque du Soleil, Sir George Martin, The Beatles legendary producer, and his son Giles Martin have been working with the entire archive of Beatles recordings to create LOVE. The result is an unprecedented approach to the music. Using the master tapes at Abbey Road Studios, Sir George and Giles have created a unique soundscape. The release of this album, which is also featured in the Cirque du Soleil/Apple Corps collaborative production of the same name at The Mirage in Las Vegas, has been much anticipated. Check out the e-card, screensavers and wallpaper downloads, and audio streams of these songs: "Lady Madonna" (lo|hi), "Octopus's Garden" (lo|hi), "Strawberry Fields Forever" (lo|hi), and "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" (lo|hi).

Earlier this month, we had the streaming audio for Jibbs' song "King Kong" featuring Chamillionaire. Now we have the video. Enjoy.

Taylor Hicks, the 30 year-old Birmingham, AL native that captured the hearts and minds of more than 63 million people who voted him this year's American Idol, is gearing up to release his debut album on December 12.

Check out two tracks from the album: "The Runaway" (lo|hi) and "Dream Myself Awake" (lo|hi).

Test Your Reflex's debut album The Burning Hour won't be released until next year, but in the mean time you can watch the video for the single "Pieces of the Sun":
