That tune is a feeling many of us share when we are alone and wish the people we love were around.  Very easy to relate to that song.....

I've been very impressed with most of the songs I've heard so far, but this one really stands out to me; it's probably my favorite so far. Most of it has to do with the fact that, as Peter pointed out, it's very relatable and emotional. I love it so much!

I'm really looking forward to "Whatever Happened." I think that one's going to be absolutely stellar as well.

What's up with the BBC getting first shot at these songs?  Where's Rodney Bingenheimer when you need him?

I hope it’s good, good, good, good vibrations, yeah!!

It is a little peculiar that they keep premiering all this stuff in Europe, maybe they just have better radio programs over there?  Surely there's somebody running something somewhere in the U.S. (besides Ryan Seacrest) who could play this stuff live.  With that said though, not in my city, there's no live DJ's that are worth a crap.

Well, we know Brian (and the Boys) have always been received better in the UK, right? [Hint of sarcasm in my voice].

Who's idea is this really. Brian's people/label? Does the UK get the jump with the pre-release promo goods before the U.S. on purpose?  Does Brian like them best or do the radio stations over here have their heads up their butts?

I don't think there's a lot of radio interest here in the United States for legacy artists. When's the last time you heard new McCartney / Dyan / etc. on a non-NPR radio show? Just the direction of the business.

Frankly, I doubt the record is going to sell that well here -- it's languishing in the Amazon sales charts, and I'm not seeing a promo blitz. The reviews are polite, but not glowing. Too bad, given how great the record itself seems to be.

I like it.  Bouncy rhythm and catchy tune with on target sad/day in the life lyrics (I can remember times I avoided my house because of loneliness).  The wordless vocal part reminds me of The Association (in a good way) and the subject matter reminds me of "Where Is She?"  

This will be one heck of an album.

I think you're right on all counts, Wirestone.  It's unfortunate the way the music business has been going.  I'm sure Ringo's new album isn't faring any better.....

BW and BB albums also tend to fare considerably better on the charts in Europe, I think.

This is great and I love it, much more so than The Last Song which tips over into over-reverbed Celine Dion schmaltz to me: but what is with the Beach Boys callbacks? Yeah, I know, he's Brian [insert expletive of choice here] Wilson, and he wrote Pet Sounds, so he gets to quote whatever he [repeat expletive of choice here] likes musically; but I found it distracting as all hell that Sail Away is as good as it is (I got good-old-fashioned Brian Wilson chills down my spine listening to the final vocal coda the other day)... but then the Sloop John B flute riff keeps bashing me over the head, especially at the end. And now here; this track is a beautifully performed little gem, but the Kiss Me Baby backing vocals keep floating in, as one poster has already noted in one of the other threads.

These tracks are good enough. They're really, really good, freshly written and beautifully performed, and Brian sounds like he's having a blast and singing to match. They don't NEED the musical equivalent of the irritating Nudge-Nudge man from Monty Python waving a giant luminous plastic hand on a stick and going "THERE you go!!! It's Brian Wilson, by the way, folks!! *HEE* was in the Beach Boys, you know. Sayyyy nooooo MOH-WAH!!!!!"

I mean, people bash Mike for always quoting Fun Fun Fun or Good Vibrations in his latter-day lyrics, but this is almost as bad, except done musically, which makes it slightly more subtle (and I guess you'd have to be a fan to notice).

It's an improvement over the call-backs in Smart Girls, I'll give you that. I just wish they weren't there at all. The songs and the performances are strong enough without them IMHO...

Well, as noted above John - extremely unsubtle musical callbacks to past back-catalogue triumphs!

All that said, this is quite clearly Brian's strongest solo album since... well, probably ever, I reckon. And I think that's probably quite a safe judgement to call now, with nearly half the tracks in the Public Domain. With the film this year and a new release this strong, I'm sure he will pick up some new fans in 2015. It was a film about Brian that did it for me back in 1995...

Me, I was always going to buy this record anyway, but there's more than enough strong stuff here to justify the price of admission, even if the over-sheeny production cheeses me off on a few tracks. It's great to hear Brian still smashing it at his age. We're unbelievably lucky in that respect.
