Just wanted to mention a great channel by a guy named Giggens. He's reviewed almost all Beach Boys' albums and a great deal of their solo albums; as well as many other artists.

His reviews are beyond detailed and an obvious labor of love. You can definitely feel how excited he is in all of reviews and its absolutely infectious.

You can check his work out here: https://www.youtube.com/user/Giggens

I've watched many of his videos. He seems like a cool/good guy.

Agreed! I love how he REALLY gets into whatever he's talking about.

Yes, Giggens is a great guy. A couple days ago, he posted a video about his 8 track tape collection - including several BB's titles.

I love giggens. He seems like a good lad. Would hang out with. I like how he talks about all aspects of the band and their lesser reviewed albums, bringing up a lot of specific details and going in depth about the more obscure avenues of the band, rather than the same endless videos about Pet Sounds and their more commercial material that doesn't really cover new ground. I always wondered if he lurked or posted here. I'm sure he must

I enjoyed his 15 most underrated/overlooked tracks--a lot of very astute choices there. Would like to see him put those into some kind of listening sequence, though--could be an interesting challenge!

Spoilers below, so if you haven't watched the video and want to experience his list as it is revealed, stop reading here.

15. Heads You Win, Tails I Lose
14. Make It Big
13. Had to Phone Ya
12. My Diane
11. Custom Machine

10. Your Summer Dream
9. A Thing or Two
8. With Me Tonight
7. Lonely Sea
6. Airplane

5. Where I Belong
4. Goin' On
3. At My Window
2. Only With You
1. From There to Back Again

Those of you reading here at this point might want to take a crack at putting these in a listening order (as opposed to "correcting" Giggens: after all, everyone is entitled to their own "15 most overlooked/underrated" list and you are free to post those lists somewhere else...

There's a way to maybe link the "love songs" together to get one "side" of an LP from it, but ordering the balance of the tracks could be tricky.
