I will say I am no fan of Christian Love's butchering of "god only knows"

I saw them in Dublin on sunday, sold out show, it was a lot of fun.

Mike did three solo songs, unleash the love, all the love in Paris and pieces brothers.

Standard show, no suprises but as I said such a fun show, the venue was rocking.

Whatever people think of this 'new' album, it is certainly garnishing a lot of interest in the band.

Very true

Apparently more of a projection at this stage, looks like this might hit #4 on the UK charts:

That would be amazing and it might have staying power with fathers day coming up etc.

It's currently at 1 on amazon and 2 on itunes which is really remarkable, could easily finish higher.

Sitting at number 1 on amazon UK, 3 versions in the top 100.

Annoyingly amazon have sold out so hopefully that doesn't put off potential buyers, capitol probably didn't anticipate the interest.

I'm here to talk about some interesting things on the album. Sounds like on Help Me, Rhonda they were able to pull The Guitars on the intro from the Mono Master as well as Carl's Solo. His solo sounds less echoey.  I sent the MP3 file through a channel separator in Audacity.You hear the true fiddly sound that Carl was trying to play.  Makes me wonder though was Help Me, Rhonda suppose to be a Country Rock song? On Heroes and Villains, it sounds like they found some of the missing 2nd verse vocals which had been missing for a while and isolated them for the mix. Brian sings a single vocal during that part, which is doubled on the Mono Mix. These vocals weren't used on the Sunshine Tommorrow Vol. 2 Vocal only Mix. On Kokomo, you can hear a buried Bruce harmony vocal double. Which is awesome! On Wouldn't It Be Nice, Mike's Solo Vocal is isolated for the bridge which is clearer than ever before. Better than the Stereo Mix. Lastly on Good Vibrations all they had to work with was the Mono Master but, with technology they were able to push elements up in the mix.

Great post!

Sounds of Summer has come back into the charts in other summers....I literally think it's just people going "oh, its summer, let's goto the beach. I guess we should get the BB's greatest hits"

That' pretty much it.

Safe to say The Beach Boys have very lucrative summers.....and winters actually  LOL

Good Vibrations doesn't really work
21  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Album Discussion Thread on: May 24, 2018, 10:08:19 AM
A good thread would be songs that should have been on this album.

For example, imagine "still i dream of it" or "cabin essance" backed by the royal Philharmonic     Shocked

I'm most excited to hear H&V

For a band that essentially toured for 36 years straight, the amount of live stuff released is absolutely pathetic.

The live stuff we got from the C50 tour still makes me sick

There has to be a reason for posting that.
24  Smiley Smile Stuff / General On Topic Discussions / Re: Beach Boys inspired song in latest Arctic Monkeys album on: May 14, 2018, 08:49:29 PM
Love the new album, Alex Turner has mentioned 'Pet Sounds" being an inspiration in a few interviews.

Vocally, "four out of five" is the most Brian sounding IMO

I love it  Grin
