Brian writes a song about the concept of "Shelter" -- and that's not weird?

I had a tweet from the huffington clocktails blogger.  He said he greed with that review, the beach boys have always been corny, but the best beach boys has also been WEIRD.  new album: not weird.  i think he was referring to jon's/old rake's review

Obviously the guy has a very limited/shallow view of the band.  We don't need to get into the corny vs. not corny vs. hipster argument again, but some of the best of the band's material isn't weird at all! Love You and Smiley Smile are weird. Smile to a certain extent.  Today!, Pet Sounds, Surfer Girl, Sunflower, I wouldn't classify those albums as being weird.  I just...I guess I don't get it sometimes.  Why can't things be of quality without being "weird" or "corny" or "hipster" or whatever.  I guess it deals with the schematics of music criticism.  Heck, I've looked at a few colleges that offer music criticism as a class for a music minor! The point being, there's intelligent music criticism, and there's moronic music criticism, and it goes both ways whether it be praising an album or dismissing it.  Saying that, I've really liked both what Jon Hunt have said and guitarfool.  Both have very interesting and intelligent opinions regarding critique.  

I suppose it is inevitable for people to immediately classify an album as corny or hip or sophisticated or weird.  But, why can't an album be all of that? Or none of that? (i.e. Sunflower, At My Window = sort of corny, weird, but brilliant.  Cool Cool Water = hip, etc.) Oh whatever, as is the case with so many of my extended posts, this rant is now over.

Well i thought he meant weird as of being experimental, looking forward for new obscure different sounds and being adventurous, but i might be wrong..

Right! But at 70, why in the world should the be adventurous? Why can't they be retrospective, and do it in fine format?

True, and i said that like two posts again, but then i just remembered how good That Lucky Old Sun is and that if the band lets Brian take control again, he might do something as good and big as That Lucky Old Sun is, even tho it doesn't mean it's actually weird music.

Okay, but what I was commenting on dealt with delegating music as "weird" and putting it in categories.

Yes i really love Shelter, but is that drum roll everywhere before the chorus comes in ? i remember hearin' an amazing clip where it was different, there's the silence and the drum came in a much much cooler way, like tcha boom tcha
that little drum roll kinda kills it for me :/
