Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Greg Prato
Along with the Who, it's nearly impossible to keep track of all the Beach Boys compilations that have littered the marketplace since the 1960s. But undoubtedly one of the better and more extensive single-disc collections is the 30-track, 2001 Euro import, The Very Best of the Beach Boys.

And while it's a fair argument that the mysteriously absent "In My Room" could have/should have easily replaced "Kokomo" would anyone have noticed if it was absent?, overall, Very Best Of is a solid Beach Boys overview.
