The opening and initial verse of "I'm Feeling Sad" are slightly reminiscent of Simon & Garfunkel's "Punky's Dilemma." A coincidence, but a neat one.  Smiley

Nice to see that a new member has decided to register and spend both of his / her first two posts bad-mouthing the new album!

... And people make fun of those of us who suspect conspiracies in BB/BW land.

With good reason.  There's a lot of hype and attention in BBs/BW land right now because of the new album, which makes it natural that new members would be joining the board.  A lot of them may even be long-time readers/lurkers who never registered or posted until motivated to do so recently.  And...shocker...not all of them may like what they hear of the new music.  That's a lot simpler and more realistic explanation than "there's a vast conspiracy attempting to trash Brian's new album on a quasi-obscure Internet message board!"

I'm a newbie, who read the forum for years and years before I registered and started posting, spurred in part by the hype happening around the new album and whatnot.  I am a huge Beach Boys and Brian fan, though I don't universally love every single thing they've ever put out.  And I'm also not really a fan of what I'm hearing so far of the new stuff - I can't get down with the production style, and some of the songs leave me cold.  It is what it is.

And it's a bit discouraging to see insinuations of nonsensical conspiracies related to this topic - it's really unwelcoming to those of us who might be relatively new.  Reasonable human beings can disagree about the merits of a piece of music and voice their opinions - there's no need to try to formulate conspiracies about it.  These sorts of responses in threads like these make me really not want to return to chat about one of my favorite bands.

I think this may be the first time I don't bother buying the new Brian Wilson album. Everything I've heard so far from NPP is cheesy, corny, clichéd, predictable and has very little to do with the work of the great Brian Wilson. Sorry, but that's it. There were some great moments on TWGMTR, but the well has finally run dry.
I am going to buy the album, but mostly for the 1975 version of In The Back Of My Mind. I'm one of the biggest Brian Wilson fans and defenders, but this album is a Frankenstein monster.

So ... longtime fans are drawn to post because of hype surrounding a new album ...

And all they post is how awful the album is, how much of a husk Brian Wilson is, how they have no desire to buy it ...

Right.

"Longtime fans."

Mmm-hmm.

I visit this board a lot more often when there's a new release on the horizon, but I tend to absolutely HATE it at the same time. I abhor differing opinions, I suppose. But the criticism of an album that hasn't even been released it is especially maddening this time around. Here I am, excited and cheerleading for a change, and people dare to air their negative opinions?! Heresy!

I dunno. People are complaining that Brian has stepped outside the box of their preferred vision of his "artistry," but the Brian Wilson of my head canon has never really been a true living, breathing person, either-- but he's getting closer and closer.

I suspect Capitol Records. Back in 66 they sabotaged Pet Sounds by releasing a Greatest Hits Lp; now, 49 years later, heure sabotaging NPP by releasing Pet Sounds*.  I suspect they have recruited an army of filth columnists to slag this album off and ruin its chances of ever selling more copies than Summer in Paradise.

Does everyone else get a definite vibe that The last song was written with Bruce Johnstons voice in mind? Shame that didn't pan out.

I'm just watching the lyric video for "On the island" again. Man, so much is done right this time. This video is great and imo the video to "That's why God made the radio" (which also had the beach theme) should've been done like this instead of that lame, cheesy 90s Disney teenmovie style.
BTW is that supposed to be Carl at 1:47 mins?

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

If there's any REAL conspiracy against Brian Wilson it's the folks who try to justify getting the new album via internet leaks i.e. stealing money out of his pocket.

Agreed. It's a very clever video. Love the "no food, no pets" visual gag.

Agree that the video adds another layer of interest to what seems to be the ditty of the album. The visual aspects add a level of coolness to the track. Gotta disagree about the TWGMTR, though. At the time, I thought the appearance of the guys in the garage was legendary, if bizarre.

I have listened to this song about 8 times and it still brings tears to my eyes dammit.  LOL

Hold on tight
And everything will be all right
I never really felt this way before

Don't let go
There's still time for us
So let's take it slow
I wish that I could give you so much more

La la la la, etc.
La la la la, etc.

Far away
And maybe we'll be coming back someday
Together in the end
To sing with you again

Ah ah ah
Da da da

I never really felt this way before
Don't be sad
There was a time and place for what we had
If there was just another chance for me to sing to you

La la la la, etc.
La la la la, etc.

There's never enough time for the ones that you love
There's never enough time for the ones that you love
There's never enough time for the ones that you love
