"Spread the love and sunshine to a whole new generation" If this was the aim... Well it's a start. I didn't expect to like this as much as I did - it's no Pet Sounds but works on a sunny day. And Pacific Coast Highway is an absolute work of art.
Better than I thought it would be. While 2/3 of the album is pretty crappy (the lyrics in general are terrible throughout), the opening and final three tracks = best songs Brian Wilson has written in some 30+ years, hands-down. Now if only he did an album like that, we would've had something special.
