Took me years to finally appreciate this record. This one shows that the boys could rock! There's no weak one actually but songs like "Misirlou" and "Lonely Sea" drag me down a bit.

A nice stepup from the first album, especially on a few key tracks.  The harmonies are notably fuller.  The amount of instrumentals does make it feel like a legitimate surf rock album, although Stoked is the only one that I find to be particularly gripping.  There are plenty of Beach Boys album I'd take above it, but it's a respectable crop and holds up to where their contemporaries were at the time.  Once again I bolded the ones I particularly enjoy.

This is the album that began my life-long Beach Boys obsession, my sister bought this LP and the Freewheelin Bob Dylan LP on the same day in 1963. The sound of the guitars on the SUSA LP made me want to learn how to play and from this point (I was 5 yrs old) I bugged my parents incessantly until they finally bought me an electric guitar. Like millions of other kids I had no idea who Dick Dale was, but I really dug the Beach Boys surf instrumentals and the tough, raw sound, not to mention their image on the back cover which seemed so cool and unusual for 1963. The vocals, especially on the title track, took it all to a new place that no other band could match. To me this LP is a complete statement and in retrospect is one of the most perfect garage-band moments in rock history.

Surfin USA - An anthem, harmony meets surf/punk Chuck Berry.
Shut Down - You can smell the burning rubber
Miserlou - This one completely blew my five year old mind
Stoked - Quick mom and dad, get me a guitar before I freak out!
Let's Go Trippin - Carl and Dave sound like a 20 finger, 12 string teen-beast
Farmer's Daughter - Gorgeous melody over surf guitar riffs, the Beach Boys owned this territory
Lonely Sea - Deep and soul baring
Lana - modestly cool
Surf Jam - loose as a goose
Noble Surfer - the keyboard/celeste solo is wacky
Honky Tonk - its there
Finders Keepers - this one always felt out of place to me

I love this LP, don't ever tell me its filler, or not important. For its time it was revolutionary.

It'd be awesome if people started maybe saying what they like about tracks that warrants their placement on the list or something. A whole lot of threads full of ordered lists isn't very interesting or provoking for discussions...

I think that's a great idea.
I'll try to push that in the next one!
