What, no, it's not a Wiki source.
How you think nineteen-seventy belongs to the nineteen-sixties and not the nineteen-seventies is baffling to me.

M.I.U. Album (Does this need an option)
This is the kind of comment I fail to understand - this is the album era polls for the 70s (btw, I would exclude 1970 as it belongs to the 60s, technically)
Funniest sh*t I've read in a long time.

Sunflower definitly the strongest album of the 70s... Surfs Up was good cuz of Til I Die, I always liked Holland/// isnt it fair to say Holland was the end of an era? When they came back with 15 big Ones and Love You it was the new reniassance of rockNroll- the Ramones Rocket to Russia had BBs homage all over it right£€£€£

I think In Concert and Child Of Winter marked the end of an era. And Surf's Up was good because of 'Til I Die.... and the title track, Long Promised Road, Feel Flows, A Day In The Life Of A Tree.... pretty much everything except Take A Load Off Your Feet

1. Sunflower

The last truly great Beach Boys albums (much as I like TWGMTR...).

Sunflower is my favorite Beach Boys album, so I have to vote for it. 

Surf's Up and Holland and close.

SMiLE is America: Infinite Potential Never Reached

Love You is the one I listen to most, went out of my way to buy on vinyl, and consider the "best" album of the lot. But in my mind its really a Brian Wilson solo album featuring the Beach Boys. Holland is their best album as a collective band, the last time they really moved forward as a studio entity, and what I would most imagine a 70s BB album should/would sound like. So I begrudgingly gave it my vote.

Here are my SMiLE Mixes. All are 2 suite, but still vastly different in several ways. Be on the lookout for another, someday.

& This is a new pet project Ive worked on, which combines Fritz Lang's classic film, Metropolis (1927) with The United States of America (1968) as a new soundtrack. More info is in the video description.

So far it's Sunflower, like almost everybody else, but I'm not really 'up' to that yet.  I'm trying to take it all in chronologically, and properly.  I'm currently up to The Beach Boys Party, which is damn good  (except for one really annoying chick in the background).

I love Love You, but I also really enjoy M.I.U., 15 Big Ones, and Sunflower/Surf's Up/Holland era rank after those only because those albums contain tracks that I don't listen to very much (such as Sunny CA, Steamboat, Demonstration Time, Deidre, Got to Know the Woman, among others.  I don't really have a reason why I don't like them as much as the later period that's just how I feel right now.   Cool
