It's frustrating that they chose to remaster Smiley Smile and not Wild Honey. I would pay more money than
I should for a remastered Wild Honey ! ! !

Wild Honey - 5/5
Aren't You Glad - 4/5
I Was Made to Love Her - 5/5
Country Air - 4/5
A Thing or Two - 3/5
Darlin' - 5/5
I'd Love Just Once to See You - 3/5
Here Comes the Night - 5/5
Let The Wind Blow - 5/5
How She Boogalooed It - 4/5
Mama Says - 5/5

Fittingly, after being shut out of the creative side on the last two albums, Mike delivers some of his best set of lyrics ever here. Very strong songwriting on the Wilson/Love front - shame the recording quality is below par.
A very good 4/5.

These days, I've found that Wild Honey has become my favourite Beach Boys album.... At least it's the album I go to the most by them lately

A good album, but one I've always thought was widely overrated. Wild Honey, Aren't You Glad, Darlin, and I'd Love Just Once To See You are among their best songs though.

I love the guitar under the part where Brian is singing "remember when you baked me your pie" etc. On "I'd Love Just Once to See You".  I even love the distortion on the organ on "Country Air". I was never satisfied with the sound of this album on vinyl, and I do love vinyl, but the cd is the way to go on this one. It's just such a feel good album - and not in a stoned way as on Smiley Smile. If Brian was depressed, I sure don't hear it. People don't like "Mama Says"? What's not to like?

I like this one a lot. Let the Wind Blow, Darlin', Wild Honey, Aren't You Glad, Here Comes the Night and I Was Made to Love Her are my favorite tracks. The latter because it just rocks, though the Stevie Wonder version is better. The thing is, and this may go against the grain, I feel that the other songs, like Country Air and I'd Love Just Once To See You are pretty but they could've been better. I still get the vibes of the stripped down, mellower brilliance of Smiley Smile, but also some of the same rushed, toss-off nature as well. Darlin' and Let the Wind Blow are two of my all time favorite BB songs, but the rest are either solid or just okay. Still good, but I prefer Friends. 3.5/5
