Just came across this and found it to be an interesting cover of my absolute, all time favorite song of the Beach Boys.  I enjoy listening to Pentatonix occasionally, but for some reason this cover seemed overly produced and lacked a sense of expressiveness.  It was however, a nice attempt at a beautiful song.  I've listened to many covers of God Only Knows, and still, no one can sing it like Carl.

I like what they're getting at, but you're right, it seems overly produced. I was amused at some of the comments though - someone was adamant that this is a Christmas song!

My favorite cover of GOK would have to be the BBC cover from 5 years ago - it seems like it was just yesterday that this came out!

My second favorite is Brian's own version from the What Love Can Do single: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kOCnkiBv29U
Brian sounds so darn good singing that song. I'm glad he put out an official studio cover.

The Beach Boys legacy is still being mortared to this day...it has a solid and unbreakable foundation of incredible songs that tower above most bands, yet some bricks are more brittle and ugly than others (even some bricks put down more recently)...thus is the nature of any entity that continues to exist. You are not defined solely by your good achievements in life, you're also defined by those unpleasant moments too. This law of life, thankfully, helps keep us all in check.

Watched a lot of the video but it kept reminding me of this stone cold classic and I had to turn it off:

Well, they somehow managed to make Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" a Christmas song, so maybe this one is next.
