Love You doesn't have enough votes. I guess there aren't enough believers on this board.

SMiLEY has 4, which is hilarious, but just proves it's still the cool album.

Some of these desert island picks are unsettling....Surfin' Safari? Shut Down, Volume II? Brian Wilson Presents Pet Sounds Live? Going Public? 15 Big Ones? Sheesh. People have no taste.

That was surprisingly easy for me. I got through my 9 'essentials' and right when I wasn't sure if I could go through the rest, the Good Vibes Box was there. I think the only song I'd REALLY miss would be Lonely Sea.

I seriously can't believe that there actually are people that think Pet Sounds isn't among the 10 best Beach Boys albums...

Why?  You can't believe that some Beach Boys fans might not like Pet Sounds?  Maybe orchestral style rock 'n' roll just isn't their thing.  Maybe they perfer a more traditional "rock band" sound like what you got on later albums and the very early albums.  I certainly love Pet Sounds, but come on, to each their own.  There's going to be people that don't like everything.  Hell, I could say "I don't understand how anyone could beleive that LA is not in the top 10 Beach Boys albums."

Today
Sounds of Summer (Euro edition!)
Pet Sounds
Wild Honey
Sunflower
Surf's Up
Holland
POB
BW
BWPS

and... my reserves are Friends, 20/20, Smiley and Love You.  In fact, I'd bump BW for Friends and move it into the reserves. D'Oh! Pity I'd already voted.

I can understand it if Pet Sounds isn't your favorite BB album. I can even understand it if it's not in your top 3. Maybe I can even understand if it's not in your top 5. But not in your top 10? No way...

But each his own I guess.

Surfin' Safari ia great album.  It's my favourite 'under-rated' Beach Boys album.  I'm a much bigger fan of BBs pre-PS than after.  The only post-PS ones I voted for were Love You and BWPS.
