In my opinion, it is the last of their great albums.



Common misspelling.  But, the title of the BB last great album is "H-O-L-L-A-N-D" not "L-O-V-E Y-O-U."  That seems to happen a lot.  Must be autocorrect or something.

Talking about you're not sure.  Dyslexia don't have I.

Most of my friends know how much I love the beach boys, so they are used to listening to Love You at my place. And luckily people seem to like it a lot too. The album is funny (johhny carson, solar system) and poignant (the night was so young) and it anticipates a lot of stuff musically. Also, there's that beautiful Patti Smith piece about it. In my opinion, it is the last of their great albums.

Smiley smile is another one of our favorites here. Love the lo-fi laid-back trippy psychedelicate intensely melodic feeling.

And, yes, also a great fan of the unreleased Adult Child - I'm with thorgil, who said he likes "left-field" Brian.

So, I don't know which albums are the most divisive, but I just don't listen to a lot of their post-77 music.
Do you know jiggy's fantastic work?

Wow! I had been to his website once but didn't have the chance to explore it like I should. I actually had another version of Adult Child, the one with H.E.L.P. is on the way, but without Marilyn Rovell, Diane and Our team, for example. I'm specially fond of Life is for the living (a Broadway song in less than two minutes, and oh, those lyrics!), It's over now, Still I dream of it (one of my favorites songs ever) and that beautiful version of Deep Purple. Really love Brian's rendition of it, with that kind of husky voice - it's like he is giving the song back to its "common use", very heartfelt but not "oversung". It's great, thank you so much! It's so nice to find another fans of those albums! (sorry for my english, not a native speaker).
