"Moon Dawg" is boring. The melody, performance etc. I'd give it 0, really.

Aha! Arguably my favourite track on the album. And this was my first ever entry on the now-defunct Capitol Board dd. December 28th, 2004:

I have often wondered why no-one (to my knowledge) has ever mentioned "The Shift" as a pointer to the future. Most reviews quickly dismiss it as "a fashion statement by Brian and Mike" or words to that effect. On the face of it, the main tune is a 12-bar blues (I I I I IV IV I I V IV I V). However, Brian "shifts" the key up a whole tone in bar 3 and back down again in bar 12 (in Carl's solo too). As far as I know this is unique----no-one else has ever done this. Still, we're talking about Brian Wilson so perhaps it's not so surprising after all.

'Nuff said. 5.

Super late to the rodeo, so to speak.
Ratings for songs so far: Surfin Safari -5; County Fair- 2; Ten Little Indians -2; ChugaLug -4; Little Girl -4; 409-4;  Surfin-5; Heads You Win- 2; Summertime Blues-3; Cuckoo Clock -3; Moon Dawg-3.
Based my ratings on a bunch of teenagers (except for Mike) recording their debut in 1962, less than a year after the group formed, with the vast majority of songs bring originals.
Even the worst songs, the ones I rated "2", are redeemed with good harmonies.

The Shift - 2. Maybe I should listen to it again based on John's post about how Brian composed it. The lyrics are a big "ugh" to me though.

A tad better than throwaway. 2.

I gotta remind myself to rate each track on the above scale, I keep forgetting. Was wondering why my scores weren't being counted. Duh.

Hardly up to the standard of The Beatles' debut but yes, a good start.

In view of the fact that I'll be giving most other albums a 5, Surfin' Safari gets a 4 from me.

When I stop and consider the evolution of Brian's music in a mere 4 years, I'm just flabbergasted. Who could've guessed that the guys who barely bashed out this album would go on to record stuff like Pet Sounds, 'Good Vibrations' and SMiLE only a handful of albums down the road.

On Surfin' Safari the boys sound hungry and eager as they begin to paddle out for the first time.

Certainly an interesting start. 3.

3 - not bad, better than the worst songs in Surfin' Safari. Again, since I like Dennis' early vocs, it's nice to hear "girls with a hoola". & staccato "lu-lu-lu-lu-luau" is catchy some.

Don't care much for the song, but the Boys make the most of it with nice, tight harmonies.

The exquisitely beautiful shortie. It displays BBs ability to combine voices in beautiful way. Favorite "Lost & Found" track. 5. Btw, Dorinda is good name.

Yes, me too give 2. Nice Brian vocal, that's about it.

Btw, really glad "Lavender" got 5's & 4's & no low rating.  Thanks, folks! police
