A nice debut from the Boys, Surfin' Safari, 409, & Moon Dawg all show promise and even Summertime Blues although a cover works well.

The beach boys debut album is an enjoyable one, harmless fun really. It's incredibly charming, yet naive, but you have to remember how young they were when they made it. It's all throwaway material but it's fun. The title track is easily the best song on the album. Surfin' is good too. So this is where it all began. Short and sweet.

Has to be the most inconsistent album out there. There's some really tight songs here that I can't help loving: Surfin' Safari, Summertime Blues, Heads You Win..., etc. But then there's honestly so much tripe here which is musically broken, I'm sure. "County Fair" is the worst Beach Boys song I've heard, by far. And I've heard Kokomo.

Not a bad Debut. Surfin' Sufari, 409, and their Summertime Blues cover stands out to me. The rest is ok.
