A great Dennis-Brian song with just a suggestion of "Walk On By". Five.

One of my favorite beach boys songs. That cello break is one of the coolest moments in their catalogue.

5/5

Dennis' first proper composition is excellent! And of course the great tag from Child Is Father Of The Man blends nicely. Five!

Reminds me a lot of the ‘Butcher’s Tale’ from the Zombies album - I mean only in that the organ is the main instrument.

Evocative and mellow. Makes me feel good. And that's enough to give it 5.

A grossly underrated gem, up there with "Our Prayer" in the spirituality stakes. Five.

Apparently the directions Brian gives are super-accurate, although it helps to know where you're leaving from. Grin

The ultimate slice-of-life song. Five.

My favorite bossa nova song ever written. Breezy and free flowing. Definitely my favorite track on Friends. 5 all the way.

Today's song is Diamond Head.

The Wrecking Crew do Hawaii! And very nice too.

It also makes the perfect transition between the preceding chilled-out tracks and the insane party atmosphere of "Transcendental Meditation".

Five.

Excellent work by Brian, Al Vescozo, Jim Ackley and Lyle Ritz! They should've put together a studio-only side project and made a whole album of this type of stuff. FIVE!

Today's song is Transcendental Meditation.

I didn't understand the charms of this album until quite recently, when SWD's study video converted me (said that before).

Looked at in terms of the album, "Transcendental Meditation" is like a noisy party in the evening after a quiet day spent doing day-to-day things.

Five.

4 - I like jazz. If Friends fell into this kinda music thru & thru, you can bet it'd be in my Top 5 BBs albums. 3D

Today's song is Transendental Meditation.

Years back I would've given it a 2 or 3. But in recent times I've learned to like it alot more. When Made In California came out I was playing the intrumental version of the song quite often. I like how JK said it "Looked at in terms of the album, "Transcendental Meditation" is like a noisy party in the evening after a quiet day spent doing day-to-day things". Well said JK. Even though not my favorite part of this album I do appreciate it alot more than before. FOUR.
