https://play.google.com/store/music/album/Brian_Wilson_No_Pier_Pressure_Deluxe?id=Bc5sies6kucu622hhojlsbkzajy

Some tentative thoughts:
1 This sounds like his best solo album to date (besides BWPS).
2 Somewhere Quiet is the remake of Summer Means New Love plus lyrics.
3 Runaway Dancer sounds really strange. Like electronic polka.

Is it weird that I want to wait until I get my copy (of the Japanese version) of the album before I listen to anything else from it? I'm not even going to listen to "The Right Time" again. I don't want to spoil anything for myself... I shall wait. Eagerly.

"Don't worry" sounds familiar to me,,maybe  "It's as easy as 1-2-3"  or some other song that I can't recall right now...

That one sounds like a mix of "Love You" and modern hipster indie music.

The clips sound really good.  Production is great.  This should be a winner.  It sounds like classic Brian Wilson but also a modern album (and not one that is pandering to a certain sound).

You were correct! If the samples alone are this stunning, just think how incredible the whole album is going to be. This is what we've all been waiting for and the wait certainly feels worth it.  Rock! Rock! Happy Dance Happy Dance Bow Bow Head Spin Head Spin Head Spin w00t! w00t!

If you'll notice, Al has a previously uncredited lead on track 10, "Somewhere Quiet."

Stunning samples. No other description will suffice. This has the potential to be the best BW-written album since the 70s.

A very kind member hooked me up with these sample...

2 words..

Mind blown!

Honestly, i'm at a loss for words, to have Brian creating music at this quality in 2015 is so special.

"Guess you had to be there" really stands out.

Listen to the samples more than once - and they start to sound better and better:

Highlights:

What Ever Happened
Saturday Night On Hollywood Blvd - can't believe how good the sample sounds - I am not a fun. fan at all - but he sings this perfectly - Brian did a great job on guiding him.
Tell Me Why
Sail Away - Al and Brian!!!
One Kind Of Love - Brian singing quite high here.


The chorus of Guess You Had To Be There (which seems to be all the sample is) is pretty great, but not sure how I'll like the parts Brian isn't featured on.  Grin

What's up with the synth horns and general production on Don't Worry?

His voice sounds wonderful throughout  - and those backgrounds are gorgeous. To have gone through all that he has and to emerge this...ebullient...is so deeply moving to hear, even abridged. Congratulations, Brian. This one really soars. And I like the self-referential nods I keep hearing throughout.

Feels like a summing up and a new beginning, all at once.

(Most intrigued to hear Tell Me Why)

And Last Song sounds like a heartbreaker and a great way to go out.

Another gift to us, sent as a note in a bottle found under the pier, in this, the bonus round of his amazing life.

Makes me wonder if Dr. Love was on this record if he would've taken the lead on this one?

If Mike were on this one, he wouldn't have let Al sing five leads, that's for sure.

Ugh, can't seem to find a play button to preview these. Do you need some sort of device, or might it be geographically restricted?

EDIT - Ah, checking via proxy, i found that the samples are U.S only as far as I could see. Grr Angry
