Album Review

The dedication is to the parents of Wilson Phillips — Brian Wilson and John & Michelle Phillips, in specific — so this Dedicated contains plenty of faithful, loving versions of songs by the Beach Boys and Mamas & Papas that you know by heart. "California Dreamin'," "Wouldn't It Be Nice,' "Monday Monday," "God Only Knows," "Dedicated to the One I Love"— the staples of oldies radio are all here, given sweet, clean treatment by Wilson Phillips, whose signature harmonies shine in this pristine setting. Unless a stiffening of the swing in "Do It Again" and "Fun Fun Fun," or a streamlined a cappella rendering of "Good Vibrations" are taken into account, there are no real surprises here, either in attitude or arrangement. This is designed as comfort food for fans of any generation of the Wilsons or the Phillips and, provided that you share the same pristine production sensibilities, this can be a pleasant nostalgia trip.

Sheer perfection

For anyone to 'cover' the songs of great artists, you risk criticism. It can be seen as a lazy way of making music, and seeking to ride on the coat tails of a successful artist. In other words, it is the hardest job in the world. There will also be those who think it nothing short of a crime to re-record some of these classics - no matter who does so. In this case - and in every sense - it is totally valid that the girls should have done this, rather than some band with no emotional connection with the original artists. I love the album. It's probably their greatest collection so far. It gives a 'hint' of where and how these tracks might have evolved if the original artists had done this. The shame is that it won't get the media coverage and attention it deserves. Well done all involved.

The Pop Princesses Are Back!!!

This album is PERFECT!!! I love all the tracks and you get a PDF of the CD Booklet with photos of Wilson Phillips duplicating covers of the songs original albums and special photos of Carnie, Wendy and Chynna with their parents when they were children. The harmonies are rich and warm and makes the Wilson Phillips Sound a Fantastic Tribute to the Originals! I LOVE the Beach Boys and I LOVE the Mamas & The Papas and I REALLY LOVE Wilson Phillips, so I'm in HEAVEN!!!

An OK tribute album but.....

.....if the family connection wasn't there then I'm sure the reviews would be far less favourable. The biggest problem anybody will have when attempting to cover songs featuring both groups but primarily The Beach Boys is that they aren't The Beach Boys. They don't have the same outstanding vocal blend, they don't have Brian Wilson producing the studio tracks and they don't have, in the case of "Good Vibrations" and the "Pet Sounds" tracks, the Wrecking Crew playing on them. So what you need is to *attempt* to revitalise them somehow but Chynna, Carnie and Wendy have just kept them as close as possible to the originals. There are some interesting vocals and "Good Vibrations" is nice but regardless of how highly I rate the offspring, they just struggle to match their parent's legacy. I'd sooner have had a new album of WP material!

Wilson Phillips first appeared in 1990 flaunting a harmony-rich sound that helped send three singles from their first album -- "Hold On," "Release Me," and "You're in Love" -- to the top of the Billboard charts. Carnie Wilson, Wendy Wilson, and Chynna Phillips comprised the vocal trio, whose sudden success was matched by an equally impressive pedigree. The two Wilson sisters had grown up in California with their father, Beach Boy bandleader Brian Wilson, and often made appearances on his albums throughout...
