Is that David singing the "lead" di-dims on Think About The Days or Al (hope you know what I mean)?

Nope - nor is it Mike, Bruce or Jeff.  Smiley

The lack of Beach Boys harmonies in "Think about the days" is slightly disappointing

Spring Vacation reminds me of Do you have any regrets.

Am I right or wrong?
I don't hear it.
I do.

I'm just listening with headphones. The words I meant are do-do-do-do (if that makes any sense). Sounds now like Al to me. Is it really Brian ? I mean the very first voice

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

If you really can't hear at least Bruce on there (hint: falsetto), may I respectfully suggest an audiologists appointment asap ?

First song is really lovely. Spring Vacation...um.

Oh, I definitely hear Bruce on that first song. No one does that high "Love Surround Me" vocal like him.

Holy cow, though. I only listened once and that Spring Vacation song won't leave my mind, even though I don't particularly like it. Weird. Catchy little number, I'll give them that.

I only listened to it twice, through poor-quality laptop speakers, but Al definitely sings lead and Bruce is all over it. I think I remember Mike being quite audible, too. In fact my first thought was "this sounds a *lot* more like the Beach Boys than That's Why God Made The Radio did".

What's to mis-read in the sentence I replied to: "singing the "lead" di-dims on Think About The Days" ? Unless English isn't his first language, no excuse.

If there's still time - ditch Spring Vacation from the record.

Think About The Days is nice. Must be a Bruce. I think I hear Brian on some of the falsetto as well.

I wanted to like it, I really did. I don't mind a bit of pitch correction, but this is just horrid. This must have been purposeful, as when pitch correction is used like this, it is stylistic, rather than correctional.

Maybe they're trying to appeal to the kids.

Oh well, Judging by the first track, they're trying to keep the fans happy as well.

I'll definitely be flicking past Spring Vacation though. I found it physically painful.

BLOODY WOW , I've now played these 2 songs about 10 times and if SV is the ( supposed ) weakest song the album then what are we in for ?? Great stuff , SV is really catchy.
My only gripe , why couldn't they have been performed in German  Roll Eyes

"Spring Vacation" seems to borrow a bit of Elton John's "Tiny Dancer". Given that Joe Thomas reportedly contributed the heavily "Loves Lies Bleeding"-derived coda to "Sunshine" (on IMAGINATION), I am to assume that Mr. Thomas wrote some of the music to "Spring Vacation"?

This song is about as insipid as I imagined it would be, but "Think About The Days" is completely left-field; perhaps the most mournful track the Beach Boys ever released.
