So who, given the choice above, votes for these?:  Huh

Mike Love, Bruce Johnston and David Marks Salute NASCAR  1 (0.3%)
Summer In Paradise  1 (0.3%)


Mike Love is probably an anonimous poster here. I can't think of another explanation.  Wink

That was surprisingly easy.

1 ) Pet Sounds
2 ) The Beach Boys Love You
3 ) Good Vibrations - Thirty Years Of The Beach Boys
4 ) The Beach Boys Today!
5 ) Surf's Up
6 ) Sunflower
7 ) Brian Wilson Presents SMiLE
8 ) 20/20
9 ) Brian Wilson
10 ) Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!)

The only other one I'd really miss would be Friends... so I'd smuggle that to the desert island in my pants.

Pity the results aren't shown in popularity order...

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."

Wow..  even Dr. UNH, Esq. aka Jason was wondering why not a lot of people were voting for LOVE YOU.  If you want him to respect others opinions, you gotta respect his, mate.

My post had nothing to do with disrespecting someone's opinion.  The quote that I was responding to was:

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

That's not stating opinion. That's taking your opinion and stating it as fact and degrading people to go along with it. That's not cool.

You're right, that's not cool. If you found my post offensive, I hereby apologize.

I should've said 'understand' instead of 'believe'. If English isn't your first language you sometimes make a bad choice of words, I guess.  Smiley

I picked (in no particular order):

Friends
LA Light Album
Sunflower
Carl & The Passions
Orange Crate Art
Pacific Ocean Blue
Summer In Paradise
20/20
Love You
In Concert (73)

Then I saw that the Boxed Set was an option...I'd probably drop 20/20 for the boxed set, in retrospect.  I wish that GH2 & GH3 were options...I probably would've chosen GH3 for sure.

Good vibes,
Eric

Wild Honey  44 (4.6%)
Smiley Smile  34 (3.5%)
Stack-O-Tracks  3 (0.3%)
Surfer Girl  21 (2.2%)

Total Votes: 100

Cool to see that over half (51%) consider "Friends" to be essential.  That is the essence of Desert Island Music right there...

Interesting that What I Really Want For Christmas was essential enough for 8% of the voters...much higher than I would expect.  It made me notice, however, that Ultiimate Christmas is missing from the list.

That means it got 0.8% of the total votes.  What I was referring to was that (at that point) 8 out of 100 voters had voted for it, which is 8%.

Brian Wilson Presents SMiLE

Where's the 3-volume Greatest Hits comps up on there? I enjoy the first two, imperfect though they are. I mean, you got wickedly out of print stuff like Made In USA and Endless Summer on there, but not these still in print GH albums? Hmm...

And who the f*** voted for MIU?

I didn't realise that a person in the world would like both BW Smile and Summer in Paradise! One or the other, but not both.
