1. Baby Blue - My #1 favorite Dennis Wilson song, and a nice apology for the M.I.U. stinkfest. Rest in Peace, True Beach Boy.
2. Good Timin' - Absolutely wonderful.
3. Angel Come Home - Very good indeed.
4. Love Surrounds Me - Same here. Pretty great song.
5. Lady Lynda - Better live at Knebworth, but hey, still pretty good I guess.
6. Shortenin' Bread - Right on Brother Bri!
7. Goin' South - Not too bad, really.
8.  Full Sail - Even Carl can't quite save this one.
9. Sumahama - Insulting. And I'm not even Japanese.
10. Here Comes The Night - And there goes the night....booed offstage and rightly so. Gimme the Wild Honey original any day!

1. Baby Blue - Magnificent.
2. Angel Come Home - Sounds like a Dennis song. Amazing.
3. Good Timin' - Not as good as some members of this board make it seems, but still pretty good.

4. Lady Lynda - Love the "darling, your love is like the coming spring" part.

5. Sumahama - There were so many better songs on First Love, like the title track or You're Looking Better.
6. Love Surrounds Me - *yawn*
7. Shortenin' Bread - Dennis' vocals are so creepy, the Adult Child version is MUCH better.
8. Goin' South / Full Sail - They're the same song, right?  Grin
9. Here Comes The Night - This was so unnecessary

From Worst to Best:
10. Sumahama. Complete sh*t. Probably the worst song the BB's ever did, with the exception of some of the SIP tracks. f*** this song is horrible. Hearing Mike sing in Japanese is intolerable. How did this monstrosity get on this album?! It should have stayed in the vaults with most of Mike's solo work.
9. Goin' South. Don't really like this song. Best way to describe this song is by using RangeRoverA1's word: "Dullville".
8. Shortenin' Bread. An all-right cover. Hasn't really grown on me though. Especially don't care for the vocals.
7. Full Sail. Another all-right song. Don't care for it too much, although I really like the intro.
6. Here Comes The Night. Not as bad as what everyone says, in fact I really, really like this! Understandable that it is one of the most hated BB's tracks, but still they did a good job at Disco. Love Carl's vocals. That being said, it's not as good as the original "Wild Honey" version, and it should have remained a non-album single.
5. Lady Lynda. Not as bad as what some people have said. Always liked Al's compositions!
4. Angel Come Home. Strange for me to hear a Carl song sung by Dennis. Still great, however. Still growing on me.
3. Good Timin'. Great song. Great Vocals. A must-check for any average Beach Boys fan.
2. Baby Blue. Not a favourite, but still I can understand how most people love it. Great Carl/Dennis duo! Sadly the last Dennis Wilson composition on a BB's album (if you discount "You Are So Beautiful" on "Live at Knebworth 1980"). R.I.P.
1. Love Surrounds Me. In a way, slightly underrated, judging by other people's ranking. One of my all-time favourite Dennis Wilson tracks!

1. Good Timin' - 329 (14)
2. Baby Blue - 317 (12)
3. Angel Come Home - 297 (3)
4. Love Surrounds Me - 254 (5)
5. Lady Lynda - 247 (4)
6. Full Sail - 181.5
7. Shortenin' Bread - 144
8. Sumahama - 143.5 (1)
9. Goin' South - 130.5
10. Here Comes the Night - 101.5

My thoughts?  An album of huge discrepancies in quality, there's rightfully a major gap between the top and bottom halves.  A pretty fair ranking, though I would place Shortenin' Bread lower.

L.A. is a 10-song album. I count 9. Is LSM too bad to even rank it? I agree, it is outrageously boring but rules are rules. Add it to the list.

It seems like I forgot it.

Crazy to see Love Remember Me getting some iffy rankings here!

To me, it's dull regardless.
