It’s going to be one of those awful orchestral backup albums. They’ve done Elvis, Roy O. and Aretha thus far.

I fear that you're right.

But who knows, maybe I'll like this thing and it'll be a huge seller for the guys. And then they have huge hit and reunite!  Grin

What's the Abbey Road connection?

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Pardon me, but I have to run to both McDonalds and Ruth's Chris Steakhouse...I'm going to get a Filet Mignon from Ruth's, then a cheeseburger from the McDonalds value menu, and put the filet in the McDonalds' bun, complete with ketchup and mustard and that dried piece of processed cheese.  Grin  Sarcasm.

And production aside, I’d so much rather hear a 14 year old David Marks shred some guitar on Chug-a-lug than hear a 51 year old Mike Love sing about bangin some chick in a swimming pool.-rab2591

Why'd they have to make it so important sounding?

They've done this with so many other artists that it's not "new" or "exciting" anymore.  I have one of the Elvis albums and plan to get the other one plus the Roy Orbison album so I feel like 3 is enough for me.

If it was a reunion, I could get the "something's coming" idea, but it's not as big as they make it sound like?  Who's in charge of the brand marketing?  BRI executives?  Or does Mike handle that too?

Now if it led to a reunion  Grin Cheesy, then I'd pre-order my copy now.  Cheesy Grin Smiley LOL Wink

I'm not excited about this idea at all. I'm an Elvis fan, but i've only listened to a couple of the orchestral Elvis tracks. Yawn.
But for the sake of the argument, should they now have a series of Elvis, Orbison, etc releases backed by an angry punk or metal band?

I hear what you are saying. But my question back would be, why do they have to be backed by anything besides the original backing tracks.

And though I'm not too excited about this project, I will admit one thing, unlike Elvis and Orbison, Brian Wilson, Al Jardine and Mike Love are all alive and here to sign off on such a project. So if they are cool with this coming out, then I suppose it is they who we should be disappointed in if this ends up being a waste of time. And on the other side of the coin, if somehow this works out really well, then they deserve credit.

If it was just the orchestra, I think it would be cool...

But combining it with the actual track? Yeesh.
