On this album filled with crap, Maybe I Don't Know is the crappiest.

 Thud

For me that's my favourite Beach Boys song of the last 34 years!


My vote goes to California Calling. Only truly awful song off this underrated album.

There is nothing worse than a Passing Friend.  On this album.

The worst bit for me is when Carl, who I can only speculate/imagine may singing to a vocal guide-track, starts doing a Boy George impersonation - ; I wonder if he popped on a hat and beads to get in the mood - flattering for Georgie-Boy, somewhat deflating for us spectators.

Na na not again.

Man.  This is tough.  I usually know, full-well, what I'm in for listening to this album.  To pick the worst is like asking -- "would you rather get punched in your kidneys -- or your liver?"

I don't know... California Calling?  I guess.  For actually "trying."  It's way too contrived.  Even though it's one of the more "beach boys-y" songs on the album -- it actually, somehow, manages to spoil "the mood."

I actually really like this album.  And I love Maybe I Don't Know, I've talked about my love for that song before on here.  It's like the best Huey Lewis song Huey Lewis never recorded.  I think some of Carl Wilson's best vocal performances are on this album.

Anyways, my least favorite is She Believes In Love Again.

Passing Friend. This album is kinda underrated - there are maybe more decent songs than people give it credit for - but PF is dreadfully boring.

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

Welcome back to a new round of BEACH BOYS SURVIVOR. Remember to be respectful of others opinions. Please don't spam the thread with too much opinionating (a little is ok  :D ).... and without further ado...

For me this album  is fraught with tracks which bear little resemblance to THE BEACH BOYS and far too much much resemblance to Culture Club. My least favorite Beach Boys album.

Quote
The Beach Boys is the self-titled twenty-fifth studio album by American rock band The Beach Boys, released on June 10, 1985. Produced by Steve Levine, the album is the band's first to be recorded after the death of founding member Dennis Wilson. It was also the first of the band's albums to be recorded digitally and released on CD. It's also the last album released by James William Guercio's Caribou Records.

For the album, the band hired Culture Club producer Steve Levine, who took them into the world of drum machines, synthesizers, sampling, and hi-tech recording technology. Brian Wilson, Carl Wilson, Mike Love, Bruce Johnston and Al Jardine all took an active role in the project, writing several new songs for it, with Stevie Wonder and Culture Club each donating a song. The album was recorded during summer 1984 at Red Bus studio in London, and Westlake Audio in Los Angeles during late 1984/early 1985. It features Motown artist Stevie Wonder on harmonica and keyboards on the song "I Do Love You", which he also wrote. Ringo Starr also appears on the track "California Calling" (Starr also appeared live with The Beach Boys in 1985 during the 4th of July concert in Washington D.C.). Noted guitarist Gary Moore features on all tracks playing both guitar and synthaxe.

Although "Getcha Back" (composed by Love and his new musical partner, former Byrds producer Terry Melcher), was a top 30 hit, the album only reached #52 in the U.S. (making it their highest charting album since the release of 1976's album 15 Big Ones). After the album, CBS Records let the band's contract expire, leaving them without a record deal for the first time in years.

Brian Wilson contributed a song written in 1982 by himself and Dennis Wilson called "Oh Lord", but the song did not make the final cut. Also cut from the album was a cover of "At the Hop" with lead vocals by Mike Love.

There is nothing worse than a Passing Friend.  On this album. Na not again. (19)

As usual vote for your least favorite track. The track with the most votes gets voted off.

Tally on April 21st

Getcha Back
It's Gettin' Late
Crack at Your Love
Maybe I Don't Know
She Believes in Love Again
California Calling
I'm So Lonely
Where I Belong
I Do Love You

On this album filled with crap, Maybe I Don't Know is the crappiest.

California Calling.

I actually quite liked Passing Friend. It may have been a little repetitive, but I always enjoy it when it's on. You can say it's a guilty pleasure.

I do love you. Not really a big Stevie Wonder fan, especially his 80's material. For me the combination just didn't mix, although I do like Al's vocal on the chorus
