This was a weird album to digest. It takes a couple listen to fully understand it's power and meaning.

A incredible musical wonderland of joyous, glorious sound. Some of the most memorable pop you will hear, with huge, larger than life vocal harmonies & immaculate production with layers and layers of sound. And yet, behind all of this joy lies an overarching sadness that hints at feelings of frustration, disappointment & even depression with the darker parts of the world. Classic album, for sure.

So the guy who, according to George Harrison, wrote 'granny music' thinks it's a great album?? So what? It's not. It's seriously flawed.

It took me awhile to "get" this album. The prettiness sometimes hides the intent. A truly genius work.

One of the best Pop albums ever. I love every single track, but my favorite's are God Only Knows, Wouldn't It Be Nice and Sloop John B. Beach Boys were such an awesome band , and this album shows it.
