When it was new, I tried to like it and succeeded with the Carl Wilson rockers.  I found some of the other stuff just unconscionablly pandering to those who only thought of the band as an oldies act.  I like She Believes in Love Again, but DID NOT like Bruce's intro lines as sung.  Imaging that part sung by Brian withthe voice he had on that album.   Would have been much more compelling ...although I realize they were shooting for a single on this one....

Nowadays, there is not much of this LP I care to hear.  Would like to hear getcha back from the 50 tour...haven't heard it yet as I recall.

1. Where I Belong - Transcendent. Carl, you're beautiful.
2. It's Gettin' Late - GREAT song, deserved better production than this.
3. Maybe I Don't Know - Not as good, but I still like it a lot.
4. It's Just a Matter of Time - I'm officially the only human being that likes this song. Yay.
5. I'm So Lonely - dumb Brian goodness.
6. She Believes in Love Again - Could have been a lot better, but it isn't entirely awful.
7. Getcha Back - Um...meh. And then some.
8. I Do Love You - reason #57 why Stevie Wonder LOST his wonder in the '80s, What a waste.
9. Male Ego - eehhh....no. NO.
10. Passing Friend - ....zzzzzz.....
11. Crack At Your Love - Crack at your skull, more like.
12. California Calling - Ugh. Call an ambulance, my ears have bled themselves dry.

The bad production ends up sinking the album, despite a few well-intentioned goodies.

From Worst To Best:

12. California Calling. The only downright awful song off this underrated album.
11. Male Ego. By far the most overrated track on this album. Not one of the worst BB's songs, but it's bad, and the lyrics are slightly creepy.
10. It's Just A Matter Of Time. Not a good song, quite boring and repetitive.
9. I'm So Lonely. Best real Brian song. Below average, still. The vocals is surprisingly good.
8. Passing Friend. Good intro, the track itself is all-right at best.
7. It's Gettin' Late. A bit repetitive, but still all right.
6. Crack At Your Love. Not a bad song. Don't care for it too much. That's all i can really say.
5. Where I Belong. Not a favourite, and probably never will be. But still, it's quite a piece of work!
4. She Believes In Love Again. The intro is another example of good music, bad lyrics. Other than that, it's a highly enjoyable song.
3. I Do Love You. Didn't like it at all at first. But it's grown on me a lot. Great track, now in the top 3 of this album.
2. Getcha Back. Best BB's single in a long, long time. Should have been a major hit, instead of the horrible "Kokomo" 3-4 years later.
1. Maybe I Don't Know. By far the best track off this album. From the first time I listened to it, I knew this was going to be a favourite.

Getcha Back - 272 (5)
Where I Belong - 255 (14)
It's Gettin' Late - 223.5 (2)
Male Ego - 196 (2)
She Believes in Love Again - 167.5
I Do Love You - 162 (2)
Maybe I Don't Know - 161 (1)
Crack At Your Love - 149.5 (1)
It's Just a Matter of Time - 145.5
California Calling - 144
I'm So Lonely - 135.5
Passing Friend - 94.5 (1)

My thoughts?  Despite having about 3 times as many first place votes as any other song, Where I Belong falls short of top place, which is a shame IMO.  Despite Male Ego being absent on a number of lists, it lands very favourably.  I would have California Calling higher and She Believes in Love Again lower.

1. Male Ego (this song is awesome, especially the coda)
2. Getcha Back
3. She Believes in Love Again (Bruce sounds great here, I like the roughness in his voice!)
4. Where I Belong
5-12 I honestly couldn't care more for

EDIT 2/25/16:

Okay, just decided to listen to the rest of the album, time to judge the album more appropriately!

1. Male Ego
2. Getcha Back
3. It's Gettin' Late
4. She Believes in Love Again
5. Where I Belong
6. It's Just a Matter of Time
7. I'm So Lonely
8. Crack at Your Love
9. I Do Love You
10. Maybe I Don't Know
11. California Calling
12. Passing Friend

EDIT 7/1/16:

My ranking has changed once again!

12. Passing Friend
11. Maybe I Don't Know
10. I Do Love You
9. Crack at Your Love
8. California Calling
7. She Believes in Love Again
6. I'm So Lonely
5. Where I Belong
4. It's Just a Matter of Time
3. Getcha Back
2. It's Gettin' Late
1. Male Ego

Hopefully I don't change my opinion again in another six months!
