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...

We won't be including the previously released track on side two.

Quote
Still Cruisin' is the twenty-sixth studio album by The Beach Boys, their thirty-fifth official album (counting compilations and live packages), and their last release of the 1980s. It is also the last album of new material released during a brief return to Capitol Records.
Still Cruisin' was left out of Capitol's Beach Boys re-issue campaign in 2000 and 2001, and is currently out of print.

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

Tally on April 19th

Still Cruisin'
Somewhere Near Japan
Island Girl
In My Car
Kokomo
Wipe Out
Make It Big

My least favorite is Make It Big... tries to rock like Van Halen.. ends up sounding like an 80's infomercial.

There are no great works of art here, but most of the songs are at least enjoyable, which is more than I can say about BB85 or SIP. A somewhat underrated album: it's not that good, but it's fun. With that in mind I vote for the IMO least catchy song:

In My Car.

Alright, I am gonna jump back in on this one. While I agree with pixletwin about Make It Big, I still like it more than some of the other candidates. So, I'm voting off Wipeout.  I like Wipeout as a novelty, but in all reality it is The Fat Boys with Brian Wilson.

Make It Big, gee what a trainwreck of a song. At this point only their name and legacy were making them sell anything.

 Make It Big   Processed 80's crap. At least Wipe Out is...unique in the catalog. And, a hit.

Only the Beach Boys in title only. It's a Fat Boys song that Brian guested on. By the way, just about all of the 1980s music is "processed crap", The Beach Boys (85) was the beginning for them, but that was the trend back then.
