The new Beach Boys album is great. Its the first with new original material since 1992, and the first since the death of Carl Wilson (I'm not counting the Smile Sessions since it spanned many years). I missed their harmonizing, and the first track ("Think About The Days") is a perfect lead in to what we love about The Beach Boys. They said the album would be very "Pet Sound-ish" and I agree, it certainly is their best work in quite a while. Perfect summer album, and who knows might end up being my favorite album of the year.
