The cheap, generic, budget off-brand of Beach Boys blogs.
According to wikipedia its going to be postponed for an unknown amount of time. For some reason I'm not very impressed by TLOS. I think Brian's new band isn't nearly as good as the old Beach Boys. They sound like a show tune group to me.
Well, to each their own. I personally love it. Not counting SMiLE, its probably the best stuff he done since Love You, or maybe even Mt. Vernon and Fairway. I like his current band. No, they don't have that irreplaceable vocal blend, but they sound a hell of a lot better than the Mike and Bruce Endless Summer Paradise at Kokomo Oldies Revue, and a lot better than what the now-65ish year old Beach Boys with cracked aged voices would sound like if they got back together. They pulled of the FULL arrangements of Pet Sounds and Smile LIVE!! If that's not a good enough argument for liking Brian's band, then I've got 2 words: TAYLOR MILLS. She's reason enough for me to like them.But, as well as they can pull off the harmonies, there's no other Wilson brothers in there but Brian to get that classic Beach Boys vocal sound.
I can't wait for this album- it's been way too long since "Gettin' In Over My Head" and the Christmas album. Obviously, Brian wrote many of my favorite Beach Boys songs. But, I've also loved his solo work, especially because it's still hard to believe that he can produce such great music and after all of this time.I hope the album does well and that Brian will continue to record some more!~JimThe Laptop Sessions Cover Songs
