11Let's Go Trippin'
Beach Boys in First Ever Concept Album Shock? Yep, not Deuce Coupe. And this *is* a bit of a gremmie shocker, even for a difficult 2nd album. But like Safari, we get quality: THE surfing classic, a hot rod killer and the first classic Brian Wilson ballad. All set for wonderful album #3...Sean Macreavy
The two hits sparkle. The rest is mostly Brian trying, with clumsy guitars and thin vocals, to match Dick Dale’s “Surfer’s Choice” lp from fall, ‘62. Still, this has charm and atmosphere. Would be a great lp to play at your Post-Covid backyard luau. Along with “Surfer’s Choice”.Gene Dorney
Surfin’ USA. The album where I found out I can’t sing like Brian Wilson. I blew my throat out trying to hit the high notes on songs like Lana, Farmer’s Daughter, and Lonely Sea. Most importantly, this is the album where you start to realize Brian could write *great* hooks.Rick Kiebiech
A lean and sweet album that hints at the bands potential but is content to live in the moment. Warm, fun, and endlessly charming. Their purest surfrock album that highlights carl's surf lead guitar. Standout track: Lonely Sea. 3.5 out of 5.HÜSKER DÜBU
Carl and David dominated it with their 'Surfing Guitars'. I love their version of Miserlou and like Honky Tonk. Brian sings Farmer's Daughter, The Lonely Sea & Lana. Mike sings Surfin' USA, Shut Down & Finder's Keepers while Noble Surfer is a group vocal. Every track is stereo.Steve Sherokey
