I like both tunes. I do. But MMIMDT is just a bit too ersatz Spector, and Brian sounds strained and terrible. On the other hand, TSM is a lovely, relatively underproduced piece of song craft -- with lame lyrics.

Darn.

I'll go with Meet Me. And I know which track is next.

Are you guys crazy? There's So Many is the best track on the album, if not Brian's whole solo career!

Glad someone else thinks so. I like all the songs left in the race, but my vote is for Meet Me In My Dreams Tonight.

"There's So Many".

Sad to see "Let It Shine" go because I'm actually a fan of Jeff Lynne and the song.

Ditto that.

Hey Little Tomboy is creepy. Banging women by the pool is fun and conjures up warm summer thoughts a Beach Boys song should.

  The track I really think is the weakest of the rest is
"Baby Let Your Hair Grow Long".

Brian Wilson is the eponymous debut solo album by Brian Wilson released in July 1988 on Sire Records. Working with an array of collaborators including his therapist Eugene Landy, Wilson accordingly themed the album around love and spirituality exemplified by its lead single "Love and Mercy". Although the album's sessions were contentious, where some participants demanded a progressive artistic statement versus conventional pop songs, nearly a quarter of the LP is devoted to "Rio Grande", a piece which was intended to rekindle Wilson's experimental drive from the mid 1960s and early 1970s.
It was voted one of the best albums of 1988 by NME, and as part of its acclaim, garnered the nickname "Pet Sounds '88" among some critics.Brian Wilson has since been reissued on several different formats with bonus tracks, and cited by some as a standout in Wilson's solo oeuvre.

The album is on Spotify!

There's So Many Votes (12)

Vote for your LEAST FAVORITE TRACK!!!

Tally on September 4th

Love and Mercy
Melt Away
Baby Let Your Hair Grow Long
Meet Me in My Dreams Tonight
Rio Grande

Round#1 - Night Time August 20
Round#2 - Walkin' the Line August 22
Round#3 - Little Children August 24
Round#4 - One for the Boys August 26
Round#5 - Let it Shine August 30
Round#6 - There's So Many

I am going to change my vote for least favorite. I have had a change of heart. Baby Let Your Hair Grow Long has lasted about 3 rounds too long.

Maybe This Track Stayed In Too Long
Logged

On our way through this "backstage" maze, Bruce joined up with the group and said hello, singing "It Never Rains in Southern California" and joking with some of the older ladies. I'm not sure if they knew he was a Beach Boy or simply an enthusiastic elderly gay gentleman.
