A Long Time Coming

I would have loved to hear this as it was originally intended, with the rest of the Beach Boys singing on it and with Brian's voice back in its prime. However, this album is still nothing short of brilliance. The harmonies are still ahead of their time as well as drop dead gorgeous. Not only have I bought this album for myself, but I have also bought it for some of my family members.

amazing album

It exceeded my expectations by a mile, it's absolutly amazing. This is art, and how anyone could give this a review of less than 5 stars is beyond me.

The Album Should be Titled "Grimace"

I had high expectations for this disk. I listened to the Beach Boys in the 60's, in my teens, and have considered Brian Wilson a very talented, although apparently for much of his life a very tormented, person. I find 'SMiLE' annoying, irritating and contrived, far too self-consciously "clever" and "brilliant". Maybe in the late 60's this music and the performing style and attitude on 'SMiLE' would have been accepted as innovative and fresh but to my ears, today, it sounds stupid and dated. Maybe if you're high on some good 60's era drugs you might find this disk entertaining but in my opinion Brian Wilson's first instincts were right. He should have destroyed every trace of it and moved on.
