From Gowienczyk 03/11/2014 21:59
My favorite band and the most nostalgic for me. All of my love of melody, harmony, and baroque pop comes from this sunny band that made a decades worth of masterpieces of pop music.

One great album, but mostly a just bunch of inane pop songs about cars and surfing.

The greatest American band of all time! They've made so much wonderful music and I've no idea why they're considered overrated when albums like "Today!", "Wild Honey", "Friends", "Sunflower", "Carl and the Passions - So Tough", "Holland" and "Love You", which are all great from start to finish, can be ranked so low. Unique sound, exceptional songwriting and bringing back good memories of summer.
