In looking at my album ratings and how often I play albums/songs, I noticed I have a pro-Brian bias.

I don't listen to 20/20, CATP, LA much at all, and subconsciously probably knock Surf's Up, Holland, KTSA and beyond down a peg purely for that reason. And when I do listen to those songs, I'll skip songs without Brian's contributions for the most part. Conversely, I find myself rating albums higher and listening to them more often (15BO and MIU in particular) if Brian plays a bigger part.

What's odd about this all is I'm not a huge fan of Brian's solo material (though I am warming up to it some). I think the other boys are certainly extremely talented and an essential part of the blend, but I definitely listen to their contributions less often and prefer them less.

Hey-there is no doubt that Brian was THE MAN and nobody else could match him---but I think Dennis's stuff gets real interesting-the recent 1968 comp was a great Dennis feast....as I'm sure will be the upcoming Feel Flows....I think Carl was not a prolific writer but his stuff is usually interesting too..The Feel Flows period saw everyone make solid contributions-but I will admit even Brian's throwaways often stand out....Genius is an over used word but he had flashes of genius for sure
