Chuck is firing on all cylinders!  Can't wait to hear the full album.  Does this mean Bear Family will have to
update and reissue they're fabulous Chuck Box Set?

Well, I don't know. With this new song, the fire is gone after 1:20 and then it's just lame and the whole production has a strange non-rocking sound. "Big boys" was better imo. Let's see what the rest will be like

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.

My local independent radio station, KRCL, played Big Boys this morning. It was awesome!

The proper swan song to a legend!

I don't see the point in punishing Brian's musical output solely because Mike wants to wow the President Elect with how long he can weeze "wheeeeeeen" into a microphone.- rab2591

It's a good album, although short by 2017 standards - 35 minutes. Chuck is in good voice, the lyrics are as entertaining/amusing as always, and I don't know if he is doing all the guitar work on the record - there are credits for others, but no telling who does what solo; if it is others, they are channeling Chuck very nicely. Not straight ahead rock all the way through, about half the album is slower songs, which IMO befits a man about to turn 90.
I wonder if this album might encourage Little Richard to bless us one more time?
