Not strictly. It's Mike Love, Bruce Johnston and David Marks of the Beach Boys saluting NASCAR. A strange release, entirely dreadful but strangely listenable if you're in the right sort of mood.

This is NOT an entirely dreadful album, as a Beach Boy detractor and possible Mike Love bigot stated.

It's very listenable and as rewarding an experience as any 'recent' Beach Boys product.  It does rock, which is more than can be said for the current album.

I have it, and I think it is terrible. That is not Mike's fault, but more Adrian Baker's...

Wasn't expensive either mate! I opened the cd to have a listen but i've kept the cassette sealed.

 LOL

I'm not even sure if the guy is for real. A Beach Boys detractor on a Beach Boys messageboard? Indeed...

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

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.

Yeah, sorry, but that's insane. 

Just listen to that GTO clip originally posted. It in fact rocks in no way whatsoever.  The drums sound like they're from 1985 instead of 1998 and the vocals are terribly mixed/processed...it's a mess.

It sounds really dreadful.

It's too metallic-sounding. But there's dignity and pride to Mike's vocals. Specially the "shut you down" part.

Mike sounds great here, though. Almost the same as he did on songs like "409". Impressive.

Very similar to Al's PT Cruiser as well, which I kinda liked (prefer it to Drivin' of his album).

Ballad of Ole Betsy on the Nascar album is cool, because Mike sings it.

I have the cd and not too impressed but this song and GTO are the only two good songs on it IMO...and GTO is only decent because it was never recorded by them in the past like the other songs on the disc...
