Night time.  Pretty much the only song I dislike on this album.

Night Time is dislike time.

Could those who decry One For The Boys elaborate? Is it hearing a wall of Brians where the other Beach Boys ought to be that grates, or do you just not like the song? It's one of my favourites on the record and I find it a teasing glimpse into what a half-decent '80s Beach Boys album might have been like.

It's one of the songs from BW'88 that sends shivers down my spine. It's all about personal choice of course, but I have to defend One For The Boys as I see it as a highlight from this album.

Probably Night Time followed by little children.

I say Night Time because I have such unpleasant memories of Brian singing it on that Dick Clark special with Brian and Frankie Valli.  Dr.   Landy's Frankenstein.  Shudder.

Night Time is definitely not delight time, nor star light time, and it's not the right time for me

Love and agree with this.

Whenever I hear it, I can't help but think of it as an impoverished relative of "Our Prayer."

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!

Night Time is definitely not delight time, nor star light time, and it's not the right time for me. (Thanks JG). I personally like this one because I always picture skinny zombie Brian dancing on a stage with mic in hand when I hear it.  LOL (17)

Vote for your LEAST FAVORITE TRACK!!!

Walkin' The Line. I can't stand Brian's vocals on this one. Probably the only BW song (officially released) that is embarrassing to listen to.

Harmonied Be Thy name

Walkin' the line is one of the baddest-ass songs he ever recorded and it cooks. What is up with all these crazy votes? I love Night Time too.

One For The Boys.

To answer the question raised by "Unreleased Backgrounds", back in 88, while I loved the fact that I could hold Brian Wilson's first solo LP in my hand, which seemed like a miracle, One For The Boys was a reminder that the Beach Boys, together, harmonising under Brian's direction, was always going to have been better. It was a reminder of what coulda been, if you like. I love walls of Broan-type tracks but this seemed under-realised, with empty pauses that should have been packed with voices. Seemed more like backing vocals, lacking instruments and a lead.
