Hello. This is a thread to discuss Brian Wilson's solo songs day by day.

Based on the one that was run by Dick Rising on PSF, we're going to discuss following albums:
Brian Wilson
Sweet Insanity
I Just Wasn't Made for These Times
Orange Crate Art
Imagination
Live at the Roxy Theatre (partial)
Gettin' in Over My Head
Brian Wilson Presents SMiLE
What I Really Want for Christmas
That Lucky Old Sun
Brian Wilson Reimagines Gershwin
In the Key of Disney
No Pier Pressure

After discussing all tracks of an album, we will take a day to discuss and rate the whole album. Non-album tracks from around the same time will be discussed after that as well.

Look forward to your participation! If you have any feedback on this thread, don't hesitate to let me know through PM or on this thread.

By my observations, many fans prefer "Melt Away". I'm in the L&M camp. It's instant classic & very good song. 5.

One of my all-time favorites, and have been fortunate to hear Brian perform it live, twice. I enjoy all versions, even the one with Brian wearing leather and "crooning" on stage, but love the Kennedy Center Honors with the boys' choir, Libera.

5. It must have been incredible for long-time fans who had heard so little from Brian for so many years to hear a track like this! One of his best solo songs. This should be a concert staple!

I give Melt Away a five, which isn't quite fair. It's not a five out of five, which is perfect (or at least rounds up to perfect). I find flaws in both released versions but still hear some platonic ideal of the song somewhere in my head. It's fantastic, one of his very best songs of the past 40 years.

I would have given 5 to Walkin' the Line, it's really grown on me, particularly the instrumental break. Brian was right to be excited about this and Night Time IMHO.

WTL-great song that deserves a 5 but I'll give it a 4 because of it's production which is a bit flamboyant IMHO.
