I don't see the point in punishing Brian's musical output solely because Mike wants to wow the President Elect with how long he can weeze "wheeeeeeen" into a microphone.- rab2591

And there’s this...

“Fowl play: Thieves use bird poop ruse to distract and pickpocket victims in Hollywood”

http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-bird-poop-pickpocket-thefts-20170907-story,amp.html


I could imagine fans who might feel hoodwinked after buying an album (that unbeknownst to them, had bad reviews scrubbed from Amazon) might feel a bit like Mike pickpocketed them too.

Just got the CD today, and reading the liner notes, it seems Christian (and Brian) is all over the album. It certainly doesn't sound like Mike (robo or otherwise) on the verses of "Kiss me Baby" so it might be them on co-lead there. Perhaps Christian simply didn't want to be singing lead on "I Don't Wanna Know" and "Too Cruel" this time around, and wanted to be more subtle in his involvement?

Brian Eichenberger and Jacqueline Love designed the booklet, and it's pretty nice.

There's a photo of Brian and Mike on the "Brian's Back" page, with a hat-less Mike playing basketball with Brian. Looks like late 70's. Presumably the latter and/or his management must have approved for the photo to be in there.

Assuming Mike owns the photo or obtained permission from the copyright holder, I don't believe he'd need Brian's permission to use a photo of Brian.

Apologies, I meant Brian Love, Mike's other son. I'd be surprised if Brian Wilson was all over the album.

I find it ironic that Mike's Beach Boys are playing his new solo tunes, while Brian's band just plays the same old songs night after night. My opinion - i'm glad Mike is playing the new songs. I've been listening to some of the songs on youtube, and am enjoying what I've heard so far. Yeah, the autotune is not the best thing in the world, but that's how records are made these days. I will write more when I've had time to listen more. But it's not the trainwreck I was expecting.

The good songs are great...ram Raj quite frankly is badass. The fact that I've had it stuck in my head all day says something,  and it had the best production on the album by far. As for the rest, well...Ambha Love sounds like she could have a good career on her own merits,  and the version of warmth of the sun sounds like it could be a hit today.

The problem is, the bad stuff is so bad that it ruins the good stuff. Like, awful. It'd be like if there was a BB compilation with two songs from pet sounds,  one from Friends, and the rest from SIP.

My quick 2 cents on Unleash The Love...

I'm not crazy about the majority of this album. The remakes are pointless to me, although I do like hearing John Cowsill on Wild Honey. And I think Ambha Love is a good singer. As far as the originals on Disc One go...I always liked Cool Head, Warm Heart (in fact I thought it was the best of the solo songs featured on 2006's Songs From Here & Back). Ram Raj is the best thing I ever hear from Mike as a solo artist. I actually love the song. I'm very impressed by it. A++.  But the rest of the album doesn't really work for me. I'm not gonna rag too hard on him for this release. I've heard worse. That is all from me on this topic....

Ram Raj has its moments, but is ruined by the pointless “curry” remark at the end. There’s a documentary that was just made that talks about how the Apu character is offensive to a number of Indians; I imagine the filmmakers wouldn’t dig this “curry” bit either. I cannot wrap my head around why it is on there.

Imagine the band adding sushi or watermelon food references spoken in racial characterizations at the end of Sumahama or Johnny B Goode. Why is this any different?

I'm glad someone brought up K-tell because that was something I was thinking too.. K-tell was a record label that used to sign "has been" oldies bands and singers to re-record their hit songs in usually crappy rearrangements on cheap studio equipment sometimes with synths, the reason for this is because they couldn't actually use the original masters because the original record companies who originally signed them owned the masters. So we get people like Little Richard, Herman's Hermits, The Classics 4, Jerry Lee Lewis and Jan and Dean rerecording their songs so they can get them released through K-tell (and other smaller labels) also can anyone say "Mike and Dean" lol...not only that but it seems Love is pulling a Ray Stevens, if you notice Stevens has rerecorded ALL of his hits but not only that but he keeps on rereleasing his newer songs from the 80's and 90's on ALL of his new albums mixed in with brand new songs...

In an attempt to curry favor and get upgraded “BBs” tickets  LOL

Seriously, in 2017 I don’t know how Mike okayed the curry line.  I played it for my coworkers, who sat slack-jawed in disbelief. One of them suggested that perhaps it was somebody who worked in production on the album slipping it in intentionally as a goof at the eleventh hour, to make Mike look bad. Troll on the staff perhaps?

Isn’t that also the theory on how the song “can’t stop talking about American girls” is vocally in the wrong key?
