5. A highlight of the Ď67-73 era (or any era). This song captures that classic BBs sound/feel, perhaps, better than any song thereafter (Brianís falsetto obviously plays a large role in that). To me, itís a special recording only surpassed by some of Brianís mid Ď60s productions.

Today's song is Forever.

It's confession time, folks. It took me years to get to like the Sunflower version of "Forever". For a while [puts on hard hat] I even preferred the Stamos-driven revisit! But time is the great healer or something and now I can appreciate the sonic splendours of one of Dennis's finest hours. Five.

I'm glad to see this. Smiley

"Forever" gets 4. But it's way too drenched in backing vocals. It should be minimal &, to say unpopular thing, I don't very much like Brian's falsetto in the end.

Thumbs Up

The next track is step back; guitar solo doesn't fit in with the rest of song. It's kinda heavy. Carl sings mellow as he did in GOK. But here his vocal is wasted for insipid melody. 2.

Curiously, I voted for "OSL" and when I looked again it was for "AMW". All good, lol. Good stuff, this Sunflower album.

Great sitar-guitar sounding solo on "OSL". "AMW" is full of endearing goings-on.

Five apiece.

Ta. CCW doesn't seem catchy yet you can sing along to it. Each fragment is fab. It's the best "outside the box" song. It's tasteful, creative. Problem with many psychedelic songs is they feature flourishes, trippy voices, macabre sound - as result, they're samey. CCW is single-standing. 5.

There's so much to like about CCW. The water chant from Love To Say Da Da is mesmerizing. Paul Tanner's moog synthesizer is awesome. Excellent vocals. The whole track is amazing. FIVE

Really good album.
Only clunker IMO was Tears in the Morning. Guess it was cathartic for Bruce to write it but it's a major chore for many of us to listen to. Melody isn't so bad but the lyrics are too whiny and don't fit in meter-wise with the music. To Bruce's credit he said in a later interview that this song shouldn't have been included in Sunflower as it messed up the "flow."

I rate Sunflower as the second greatest album of The Beach Boys (#1 is Pet Sounds), but it could've been even better by using tracklist like this:

1. Slip On Through
2. This Whole World
3. Add Some Music To Your Day
4. Susie Cincinatti
5. San Miguel
6. Deirdre
7. It's About Time

8. Loop De Loop
9. Tears in The Morning
10. All I Wanna Do
11. Our Sweet Love
12. Good Time
13. Fallin' In Love
14. Forever

Got To Know The Woman is fun but not better than either Fallin' In Love and San Miguel. Also, At My Window is good but Susie Cincinnati and Loop De Loop are even better.
I omitted Cool, Cool Water because it doesn't exactly fit the vibes of the album IMO. Maybe It could've worked better on Surf's Up (I know Sunflower wouldn't have existed without it, but still...)

There are also two tracklists I made:

Break Away (The Last Capitol Album)
1. Break Away
2. Got To Know The Woman
3. Slip On Through
4. Deirdre
5. When Girls Get Together
6. Celebrate the News

7. Loop De Loop
8. Cotton Fields [Single Ver.]
9. San Miguel
10. Games Two Can Play
11. All I Wanna Do
12. Forever


Add Some Music (Alternate "Sunflower" album)
1. Soulful Old Man Sunshine
2. This Whole World
3. Add Some Music
4. Susie Cincinnati
5. Good Time
6. It's About Time

7. Tears In The Morning
8. I Just Got My Pay
9. Our Sweet Love
10. Fallin' In Love
11. At My Window
12. Cool, Cool Water
