Muze PNote Mike Love has worn down the Beach Boys' cars-and-surf sound into empty exercises in nostalgia while Brian Wilson based his reputation among the rock intelligentsia almost entirely upon PET SOUNDS and the unreleased SMILE. Nevertheless, there are many Beach Boys cultists who feel that SUNFLOWER and SURF'S UP are the band's finest work.
Muze PNote Released in 1970 and '71 as the first products of their new Brother Records deal with Warner Brothers, whose commercial and artistic expectations were much different than the group had experienced at Capitol, these are relaxed, confident records with a progressive, experimental edge. While there's some missteps--Love's "Student Demonstration Time" is possibly the band's worst song ever--the high points are exquisite. Bruce Johnston's "Disney Girls," Carl Wilson's "Don't Go Near the Water," and Brian's "Til I Die," "Cool Cool Water" and the astonishing SMILE outtake "Surf's Up" are among the band's very finest songs.

Artist Overview

Admired for both their infectious surfer music and their sophisticated, multi-tracked pop productions, the Beach Boys created a lasting impression on popular music through their complex harmonies and Brian Wilson's genius for composition and arrangement. Their 1966 album, PET SOUNDS, is a baroque/psychedelic-pop masterpiece that easily ranks among the most influential albums of the rock era. Brian's emotional difficulties eventually prevented him from performing, but his brothers and buddies carried on without him, singing his songs and spreading that California sunshine all over the world. In 1999, Brian launched a solo world tour, showcasing his Beach Boys compositions, and has continued to perform live as well.

Professional Reviews

Rolling Stone (8/31/00, p.73)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "...On-par tunes and productions...strikingly unified....ranking among the band's most heartfelt achievements..."

Entertainment Weekly (8/11/00, pp.78-9)
- "...There aren't many who won't want [this]...bearing several of Brian's post-PET SOUNDS mini-masterpieces..." - Rating: B

Q (9/00, pp.118-9)
- 5 stars out of 5 - "...SUNFLOWER is an absolute delight...[they] minted a sound that managed to stride into fresh pastures, but retain the qualities...that had long been their calling card....SURF'S UP ups the ante even further...the sun-kissed psychedelia belatedly reaches full bloom..."

Melody Maker (9/12/00, p.51)
- 4 stars out of 5 - "...Classic symphonic pop mixed confusingly in with naive green politics. Buy PET SOUNDS first, then consider this classic pair of 1970/1 albums."
