There's a decent chance the above post is horrifically embarrassing, so I'll apologise here

No you made a mistake. L.A comes after MIU. LA was 1979, MIU was 78.   Grin

Probably the toughest call out of these three polls.  I went with Sunflower first mainly because it has excellent top-tier songs as well as quality control.  Surf's Up might even have a better top-tier but offers fewer songs and more inconsistency.  With the track changes that were possible at the time, it could have actually won this.  Love You is actually relatively consistent, and while I love the imperfect vocals for what they are I can't help but think how some of these might have fared in earlier times.  Then there's Holland, which is probably one of their most consistent albums but only a few songs go above good/great.  Any of these four would get consideration in a top 5 Beach Boys album poll for me, so it was very tough.  Everything else after that is pretty straight-forward in my opinion.

1. Sunflower (1970)
2. Love You (1977)
3. Surf's Up (1971)
4. Holland (1973)
5. Carl and the Passions - "So Tough" (1972)
6. 15 Big Ones (1976)
7. M.I.U. Album (1978)
8. L.A. (Light Album) (1979)

Sunflower.

I, I love the colorful clothes she wears, and she's already working on my brain. I only looked in her eyes, but I picked up something I just can't explain. I, I bet I know what she’s like, and I can feel how right she’d be for me. It’s weird how she comes in so strong, and I wonder what she’s picking up from me. I hope it’s good, good, good, good vibrations, yeah!!

08. 15 Big Ones - shame this is what was released when the US was ready to embrace them again
07. M.I.U. - kinda have to agree with what Dennis Wilson said about this album and Mike's karma
06. Carl and The Passions "So Tough!" - nice album but doesn't sound like the BB - shows them clearly as 2 fragmented subgroups
05. L.A. Light Album - Dennis tracks alone get it to #5, the others are dreck (hello Sumahama & disco Here Comes the Night)
04. Holland - I personally like the flow of this album and the homesick Al/Mike California tributes, but overall a mixed back of good with bad tracks
03. Surf's Up - I actually think this is an overrated album (makes its way on the 500 albums you must listen to before you die, etc--not in their 10 best overall, but 3rd best here)
02. The Beach Boys Love You - gem of an album that creates a great vibe all its own with Brian and the Moog
01. Sunflower - great balanced album with equal contributions by all band members
