Think this is the only one I haven't ranked yet. Easily one of their least satisfying releases ever, even though there are glimpses of brilliance throughout. Still, not even half as good as its predecessor (which is, admittedly, a favorite of mine).

Great:
When Girls Get Together
Goin' On

Good/enjoyable:
Livin' With a Heartache
Santa Ana Winds (much prefer the earlier version)
Some of Your Love
Oh Darlin'

Somewhere in between:
Endless Harmony (I really really like the Free Design's cover version of this!)

Forgettable:
Keepin' the Summer Alive
School Day

1. Goin' On - Awesome. Leave it to Carl to save an iffy album (see Beach Boys '85 for further proof).
2. Livin' With A Heartache - LOVE this song. One of the smoothest Carl vocals.
3. Oh Darlin' - quite strong, nice harkening back to a far better song, 'God Only Knows'.
4. Keepin' The Summer Alive - notice how I have the top 4 clogged with Carl Wilson songs? Wonder why... Wink
5. Santa Ana Winds - the spoken bit sucks, Mike's nasal voice is seriously distracting and it could have been recorded MUCH better. But still pretty decent.
6. Endless Harmony - Half good.
7. When Girls Get Together - Eh? Nah. Well....
8. School Days - Better on the Knebworth DVD. Otherwise meh.
9. Some of Your Love - blah, Mike, blah!
10. Sunshine - Forget about it! No, seriously.

1. Goin' On
2. Santa Ana Winds - I don't see what's wrong with Al's spoken intro.
3. Sunshine - If you go on Webster and search for the word RAD, there's just a link for a .mp3 of this song.
4. Some Of Your Love
5. Keepin' The Summer Alive
6. Oh Darlin'
7. Endless Harmony - I LOVE the coda, but the rest... ugh.
8. Livin' With A Heartache
9. School Days
10. When Girls Get Together - If you don't feel insulted by the mix, there's something very wrong with your ears.

1. Goin' On - 306.5 (19)
2. Santa Ana Winds - 255.5 (4)
3. Keepin' the Summer Alive - 232 (3)
4. Livin' with a Heartache - 220 (4)
5. Some of Your Love - 207.5 (1)
6. When Girls Get Together - 180.5 (2)
7. Oh Darlin' - 177.5
8. Endless Harmony - 149.5 (1)
9. Sunshine - 141.5 (1)
10. School Day (Ring! Ring! Goes the Bell) - 109.5 (1)

My thoughts? Probably the toughest album to make sense of because there's nothing amazing, with most of the songs being middling.  The top and bottom spots are pretty decisive, but beyond that I don't have much to say.  Some of Your Love may be too highly regarded for my tastes, however.

Keepin' the Summer Alive-Knebworth version
Oh Darlin-Brian Vocal
Mike Come Back to LA
School Days-Knebworth version
Goin' to the Beach
Why Won't They Let Us Fall in Love
Santa Ana Winds (version with different lyrics and no voice over)
Lookin' Down the Coast
When Girls Get Together-Sunflower version

Yeah, I know it's not the actual album, but KTSA is just so terrible that I'd rather hear the outtakes.

10). School Day
9). Keepin' the Summer Alive
Cool. Sunshine
7). Livin' With a Heartache
6). Santa Ana Winds (Spoken word intro just kills it for me, the earlier version is FAR superior!)
5). Endless Harmony (If only that last minute was about something other than how awesome america is, then it could've ranked higher. Still find the rest of it very haunting though!)
4). Some of Your Love (Mike Come Back to LA anyone?)
3). Goin' On (I'd prefer it without the sax solo, but still very good!)
2). Oh Darling (Love either version, I don't really get the hate for this song!)
1). When Girls Get Together (Just beautiful)

3/16/16 Edit:

Decided to re-listen to the album, and my opinions have changed significantly.

10. Keepin' the Summer Alive
9. Santa Ana Winds
8. Sunshine
7. Livin' With a Heartache
6. School Day
5. Some of Your Love
4. Endless Harmony
3. Goin' On
2. Oh Darling
1. When Girls Get Together
