Nothing of the history behind this song can detract from its beauty in Dennis's hands. Five.

Dennis took a mediocre song and turned it into an awesome song. FIVE!

Today's song is Our Prayer.

My favourite version, perhaps because I heard it first. A perfectly crafted gem. Five.

Our Prayer = 5

Absolutely stunning! I also heard it first on 20/20 and probably prefer that version as well.

Like it? Yes & no. But to give it even 4.5 is to hint at the BBs being bad at singing this type song.

This song is the best track in 20/20. It's Smile's best too. Interesting combination - slow & fast, did anybody expect the chorus to begin like that? It's crazy in the coolest way. 3D  Big 5. Thumbs Up

I heard this back in '69 or '70 and was blown away. Those backing vocals in the "Iron Horse" section! And much more...

What an album closer! Five.

This was one of those songs that I had the reaction of "what the ??" to. It took me a few listens to truly appreciate it and it's now one of my favorite BB songs.
I prefer the outro of this version to TSS.
A resounding 5.

Today we'll discuss 20/20 album.

It's a patchwork quilt of an album and as such it works very well. Some tracks fall flat out of context but the whole is a great listen. Five.

I want to give it 5, but I really dislike Nearest Faraway Place. So I gave it 4 (call it 4.5)

Some of my favorite songs by them are on this album. It's one of my favorite LPs. I just wish they could've replaced Bruce's song with something else from that era.

A resounding 5.
Fixed it for you. police Let's stop this "a whatever" rubbish. "Resounding 5" is better.

Then - liked 20/20. Now - leave the best tracks/ delete boring. 3.

It's good to see 20/20 get 3 3's Smiley ("3 3's" - catchy, eh?).

WTA=3. I did like it initially but it faded away. But definitely this song isn't in "nothing special" category. I should add it's solid 3.

The coda of "WTA" is amazing. Those added chords give such a warm feeling. But the entire song is joyous. Five.

Great block harmonies and melody. I've always been curious as to who this unrelated Ron Wilson is (writer of this song). Surely it can't be the drummer for the Surfaris? Either way, FIVE.
