A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

OF MONTREAL - SKELETAL LAMPING is by far my favorite album of all time. It is a masterpiece on so many levels. Think an erotic, funky, electronic Smile with lyrics worthy of Dylan.

Hello, Will. Late response, haven't checked this thread in awhile. To answer, I tend to like his late stuff. My favorite album is "Bone Machine". It's eclectic, odd-loaded, noise-centric, non-commercial & yet, it won awards & was quoted in RS. All tracks are very stylish, the music doesn't sound 90s, it's very modern. Sometimes I get the image he's jamming in my room. Crazy stuff is my thing, mostly. It's a win-win.
  "Bad As Me" I've not heard, but I did "Chicago" - great song! It's abrasive & quick as quicksilver; anything with marches is good in my book.
