I dunno whether a tour would suck or not, but I'd consider going if they came to the UK, seeing as it'd probably be the last time to see them on stage.

Pretty cool stuff.

Not many bands can do this... I mean, a 50 year reunion? That's just amazing.

Not an over-the-top, but it'll be interesting to see what comes of it. Might be interesting.

I'd agree in the sense that Smile is definitely not for everyone, it's more like moments of utter brilliance with amazing pop songs in between as opposed to the tour-de-force of inspiration on Pet Sounds.

But really, Surf's Up is probably the finest pop song ever made

I'd be lying if I said I was aware of more than two songs by these guys, way before my time.
