This is all judging by the fact it follows a modified Brian Wilson Presents SMiLE structure, except not directly unlike most of the popular pre-Sessions/post-BWPS fanmixes back then, specifically Purple Chick's "stereo reconstruction".

And production aside, Id 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

BWPS is what it is.  TSS Disc 1 is what it is. Each is great in its own ways.
But neither is or can be a "finished Beach Boys Smile album" ... Too many of the 1966-67 tracks lack vocals.  The Elements will always be vague.  A final, definitive version/mix of Heroes & Villains remains elusive.  A vintage instrumental track of Surf's Up 2nd movement has never surfaced.   I think that Mark & Alan did a wonderful job with TSS Disc 1, particularly doing things like "flying in" Brian's demo vocals for IIGS & Barnyard, but without lead vocals on CIFOTM or Worms and for a bunch of other reasons, it's always going to be unfinished.
