Of course you might expect an album from a a parallel beatles to be very similar to their solo stuff. Except, rather than write and perform the songs
themselves they simply wrote and recorded them as a band.
e.g maybe John Lennon was always going to write 'Watching the Wheels', it's just that in the alternate universe he wrote and recorded it with the
rest of the beatles.
Edit: I've just listened to some of it and I think it's clearly a mash-up. So far there hasn't been one song that hasn't been a mixture of other
songs. Also when the Beatles split up they were moving in the direction of paring down their music to a simple four piece and a more live-like sound,
eschewing the studio tricks of previous albums. This album is the total opposite of that. If the story is to be believed they would be recording
songs only to sample pieces from them in order to create new songs. Which seems an inordinately complicated way of producing an album.. However,
it's not so complicated if it has been produced by a hobbyist sampling existing tracks.
Having said that, it's a very good album. The person/people responsible clearly has talent. My take on the alternative universe story is either the
guy is just having a bit of fun or he has stumbled upon what he thinks is a way of getting his work out to an audience while protecting him from being
sued for copyright. I'd love to see him offering this defence in the courts
