I knew it's "a cappella" since I read that word & began posting here. Couldn't resist to brag.

Dreadfully glad "Custom Machine" & some previous got 2 "1"s. Smiley It went from 5 to this low in 5 years listening to it.

Agreed, JK.  I'll give it a 24.

What strikes me especially is Brian's phrasing and control of dynamics.  Vocal qualities that don't get enough study.
His instincts in those areas are unique and superlative.  ("are" in the historical/editorial sense)

The business of going in and out of falsetto also amazes me in this song and elsewhere. But you allude to such.

(Speaking of which, I've been listening to Jason Lytle's latest, "Last Place" (Grandaddy) and digging the same things. 

Took your advice, D, and gave Last Place a listen. Quite an introspective album in some ways. Good call.

Apology accepted. police Would like to repeat - glad to see "Custom Machine" got 2 "1"s. Yahoo! Smiley

LDC is 3 - nice songs about cars, the very idea to write the album in such vein is cool. It's just among least favorites.

A consistently excellent album, up to and including the closer (yahoo to you too, RR).

I gave it a 3 but it could have easily been a 4.

I hadn't bothered listening to this album due to reading comments that it was almost a throwaway album. And I've not ever been a car fanatic. But every now and then I'd hear an individual song and think "that's pretty good."
I mean, a love song about a car? Shedding tears over a car getting old? The only time I cried over a car was when my ancient Dodge Colt had an engine fire on the highway. Living paycheck to paycheck at the time, how could I afford to pay for another car? Bwaawaa! :-)

I dock it a point for the repeats of songs, although I feel guilty about that - if those songs weren't in there Brian would have had to write/get more songs, as if he didn't a lot to do already. And a couple of songs aren't quite up to snuff, BTTYS in particular.

The last three songs are great IMHO.

This is somehow one of the well-known outtakes in Japan. I like it and it deserves a 4.

Pretty much just guide vocals for the Castells version. Not a bad song but it's nothing I add on my playlists. I give it a 3.

1. Mike at nasal low. The Castells' lead is gracious. It'd be 3. The melody is pretty boring.

I give it a solid 4.

Don't recall hearing it when it came out (do remember the flip side, In My Room).
I'm glad Brian decided to revisit this. The extras added - the Honeys, playing a bit of the HHS Cougars fight song - turn this into a pretty good song.

I give it a "5".

This was the song that made me a Beach Boy fan at not quite 7 years of age. Didn't hear Surfin Safari until later.  I thought Surfin USA was okay but no great shakes, and was too young to appreciate In My Room (but that became a favorite soon after).

Thought it was such a fun song. My favorite part of it was the incredible falsetto ending - that blew me away!

Same here. This is probably the first song I listen to as one of the beach boys songs.

Anyway, an absolute classic. A 5.

One of their greatest moments, and one of Brian best leads, in my opinion. On a side note, when I was kid I was constantly having problems with my speakers on my little stereo system (one speaker was always cutting out). So I was always missing parts of Don't Worry Baby. So I prefer this song in mono. Actually I prefer most songs in mono.
