It's odd but when this album (yes, we used to call them albums) came out, the rock scene had divided itself into two camps--those who saw the Beach Boys as musical dinosaurs and who wouldn't listen to them because of who they were and what their music represented, and those who still longed for the music the Boys had made earlier in the 60's. Because of this the album was not a huge success at the time. However, if you go back and listen to it now you'll be amazed at how much more complex it was than some of what we were infatuated with at the time. It really represents the best work that Brian Wilson ever did. And don't adjust your set. It was recorded in mono and although it's been remastered in a stereo version, you wouldn't buy the colorized version of Casablana, would you?
