I won't make this a long review, so I will keep it short.
If you are a fan of Brian Wilson....buy this now!
If you are a fan of the Beach Boys....buy this now!!
If you are a fan of George & Ira Gershwin....buy this now!!!
If you are a fan of all of the above...BUY THIS NOW!!!!
To me this album is a marriage of SMiLE with Gershwin songs. While it has a Beach Boys flavor, the sound reminds me much more of the more personal Brian Wilson album "SMiLE". The songs do have a new breath of life among them and the two new songs by Wilson & Gershwin are a real treat.
I know some critics aren't being kind to this new release but I feel that in the future, this album will be one of the most memorable of Brian Wilson's solo career. I won't spoil the fun by posting clips or by going into the entire album in detail but I will say this:
This album is one of the best albums I have heard in all of 2010 thus far. Now...go buy it! It's only $12.00 at Wal-Mart!!
