I honestly don't think is ALL bad... I like Hot Fun In The Summertime, Still Surfin, Island Fever, Strange Things Happen, and the title track. The production is pretty bad, but the songs aren't all that bad--- EXCEPT SUMMER OF LOVE---- EEEEEEWWWWWW its so creeepy!!!!!!!!!!!!  I also don't like the Surfin remake, even though I love the original 1961 version, and the version with Jan & Dean even more! Anyway, the production is crappy, but the songs and singing are good on the songs I mentioned above.

I agree.  I think the album gets a bad reputation because of the awful production.   And the fact that four songs are almost unlistenable - Surfin 92 and Summer of Love (as you mentioned) as well as the horrid covers of Remember Walking in the Sand (which Andrew Doe called possibly the worst cover of all time) and Under the Boardwalk.

Possibly the worst, most embarrassing album ever recorded by a well-known band. Lahaina Aloha is the only decent thing on it.

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.

Ever hear Metallica's St Anger album?

As a fan, I bought it when it was released in 2003, and it might be the toughest listen I've ever had to any album of a band that I like.  Outside of a few riffs, there is almost no redeeming quality on it. 

SIP at least had 4-6 tracks I like enough to look past the awful production.

There are some really great songs on here, and the worst part of the production is the LOUD SNARE!!!! On Bruce's song the intro always scares the sh*t out of me, cause that snare is so fricken loud!!!!!

I agree.   For a band that spent their golden years perfecting their craft in the studio, the last 25 years sure have seen some questionable studio production.

Not a good album or time in the BB world but 'Still Surfin' is a great song. Wish I knew who did the falsetto. Obviously not a Beach Boy. Was it Adrian Baker?
I give it a 2 based on that awesome song. Everything else on this is awful.

According to wikipedia Adrian Baker sang backup vocals, but not the other regular members of the (then) current Beach Boys' touring band.
