i posted this in another thread.  I skipped a couple, but you get the gist i think.  Also i think he may say "moonlight" instead of "sunlight" sometimes

Thanks!

Also, Brian is getting to relatively high notes on Bill and Sue. Love that song just because of that.

I was just flipping through Paul Williams' book (damn, why did we have to lose Paul Williams?!) and was amused to find a reference to the suite on page 189 from an interview with Anderle dated March 20th, 1997

CINDY: Well, Melinda tells me that Brian's working on an incredible song cycle right now.

DAVID: Really? He told me, we ended the phone conversation with him saying, "I've got to get back to the piano now." That's a good sign.

They discuss the Chicago house and Joe Thomas a few pages later.

Then I got an email asking for help on an LA tribute for the OTHER Paul Williams. What the?!!?

I think the ghost of Gene Landy appeared to Brian on his TV while he was watching Bravo and sang this to him.

Yes, but it's all in Brian's delivery. I'm with EH, regardless of who wrote it, it has that Brian quirkiness to it.

Meh, it's not really quirky Brian if it's not Brian's lyrics. And Brian writing about Cameron Diaz doesn't seem likely.

Finally got the new album ! And I like it very much ! Some people complain about "Beaches in mind" but (and remember I was terrified when that title first was mentioned !) it's a nice little funky rock. The weak side of it (and the album) is in the lyrics. Unfortunately the songs Mike and Brian wrote together - Isn't It Time and Beaches In Mind - partly feature terrible, cheesy (and not good cheesy but tasteless 90s cheesy) lyrics. I don't know what's going on in their (especially Mike's) minds when it comes to this stuff. Back in the old days Mike was capable of very good and at times great lyrics. But what is this ? The title track shows how nostalgia can be done tastefully. I really wished that Brian and Joe would've told Mike to go back and work more on the lyrics instead of goin' with some of this stuff.
Anyway, I'm really glad with the album. It's more or less what I wanted it to be; a good pop album with catchy pop songs. The autotune isn't that big a thing as some people try to make it to be. It's the Beach Boys in 2012 and it does sound new and yet like the Beach Boys

Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen I have time I'll write a review but that might take a while.


I'm a little confused about the credits. I heard that not all instrumentalists are mentioned and that David doesn't get singing credits. But he isn't listed at all on some songs. What's that about ?

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Beaches In Mind is, so far, my least favourite track on the album. It's like the song was built around a strong riff but failed to live up to it; the "beach" thang doesn't move me here.

Bill & Sue is, again to my mind, one of the stronger tracks though the chorus drags it back to ground already trodden, long ago – the list of places etc – and is so different to the rest of the track as to distract from the charm of the verses. It sounds to these ears as though some elements of the song might have been trimmed, as the story doesn't seem to be full developed. Trim the chorus and give us the rest (assuming I'm right!)!

Wow - my 3-year-old's picking up on it also.

Have you any idea how great it is to have a new Beach Boys album for my own kids to grow up on!!
