Holy sh*t!

From There To Back Again kicks ass.

I think I like Spring Vacation. This is a pleasant surprise. Terrible lyrics in places, mind.

Are there any more?

Eloquently stated, sir.


Well, I wouldn't want to give TOO much away  Wink

And whoops..... Of course, now we are quoting all these posts I can't go back and correct my stupid error. Chalk it up to excitement....

Chance to hear a couple of previews:

http://avro.nl/audioplayer/?p=schiffersfm&d=2012/05/13&h=1

In the 13-5-2012 box click on "11.00 - 12.00" and they're after about 5.30

Fantastic. Thanks.

Thanks a lot for sharing this link AGD!

My thoughts:
Think About The Days is a nice little intro to the album, nothing earth shattering and certainly no Our Prayer or even Meant For You. But still: nice and inoffensive. I think it might be better in the flow of the album than on it's own.

The music to Spring Vacation is alright and it's nice to think of Mike and Brian getting together again to write some songs, but the lyrics are absolutely disgusting.  Roll Eyes

Thanks for the link.

"Think About The Days" is wonderful and lovely. "Spring Vacation" has charming (albeit heavily autotuned) moments (Halelu-who-ooooo-yah) but seems pretty ho-hum.

As a prelude to "From There To Back Again/Pacific Coast Highway/Summer's Gone", it's fit and proper.

"Think About The Days" - absolutely beautiful (did I hear some of the melody before? Can't remember the song and why, but the fairytale EP comes to mind).
"Spring Vacation", better than expected after knowing some of the lyrics. A 2000's production like you would hear it on the radio, like it better than TWGMTR.
What's the name of the guitar song? Sweet vocal by Mike.

Think About The Days is amazing! Proper Beach Boys sound there! It's a shame it isn't longer! Spring Vacation? The lyrics are a bit lazy in places but generally good! I can't wait to hear more now. Considering they have been around for 50 years, are all around 70, haven't worked together for decades and are missing two founding members, I am impressed!

Yes, if Spring Vacation is the worst we have to fear then I am pretty excited.  Smiley

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

Think About The Days (track #1)

I like "SV" in a kinda guilty pleasures way.

Thanks, Andrew. I saw someone mistakenly refer to "From There To Back Again" being part of the preview.

I actually dig "Spring Vacation". Brian's vocals sound great here.

The songs are played back to back.  Think About the Days and Spring Vacation.  There is a Norah Jones song first, then the 2 BB's songs back to back. 

Love Think about the Days for what it is intended to be, part of the whole.  As for SV, I am with you guys.  Better than expected.  Great vocals by Brian, brought a little smile to my face.  Can't wait for the rest...

Well, the theme for this Reunion album is reunion itself. And seems to be done in a pretty classy way.

TATD... Beautiful. Brian is actually singing falsetto in a new BB song. I'm speechless.

SV... I like that one very much. Can't forget the bashing this one got when a snippet leaked. Shame on you, people! I think the lyrics, in their expected simplicity, are sincere as hell. This guys mean what they're singing. And it shows.

"Spring Vacation" I cannot even bring myself to like guiltily.

I like almost everything else I've heard so far, though!

Apart from the 90s boyband lyrics to SV, these two tunes are way better than i expected.

brian singing were back together. mike: the past is behind us; this is beautiful : every artist has a right to a manifesto, even it's heavy with references to their corpus. our whoel lives are full of those references. . . . .

hey, what's it to you!!??

I am in heaven with this. listen to Dave rip a solo of spring vacation!!

wow

got to go to work. . . .

Hmm, rather than answer my question, Mr. Old Rake edited out his comments about all of the other tunes on the album. If you heard an advance stream, just tell us what think about it ala AGD.  We just want the info, my friend...
