    Apparently the Beach Boys had a new album come out this month
    "It was the best of times...it was Tebow Time."

    I thought you loved the Beach Boys, it seemed semi-topical
    "It was the best of times...it was Tebow Time."

    loving the Beach Boys is a very caveat-filled affair




    you can love these pre-Pet Sounds singles: Don't Worry Baby, In My Room, Surfer Girl, California Girls. Maybe one or two others i can't think of right now. You can like, not love, the others


    then Good Vibrations


    the Pet Sounds album


    the formerly mythical, now actual Smile album, plus some albums that had Smile tracks splintered off them, like the album I posted, Surf's Up (Wild Honey is another great post-popular Beach Boys album)



    you aren't allowed to like Help Me Rhonda, Mike Love's decisions, or anything after 1973

    Haha


    I was really into them when I was younger, but somewhere around age 10-12 I slowly started moving away from them
    "It was the best of times...it was Tebow Time."

    The Beach Boys have a good song.
    It is called Good Vibrations.
    Even it, is White+Cheezy, but it's an unusual achievement.
    Some time in the 90's, real hipsters, not the "hipsters" of today, the real hipsters, decided everyone had to be in awe of the Beach Boys.
    It was fun to blow minds at parties..."I think the most important band of the 60's is The Beach Boys, not the Beatles. *raise eyebrow*"
    If you wanted to get laid, you had to make sure you'd heard Pet Sounds.
    I woke up inside an episode of The Twilight Zone, where Brian Wilson was regarded as some kind of dangerous werewolf genius because he was better at making up fruity Daniel Johnston Heavy songs than he was at living life.

    Those days are over. "Hipsters" are no longer Hipsters. The Beach Boys are back to being a suck band that only Mormon families would like.

    they are good


    they are not as good as The Beatles



    they are not as good as Bob Dylan or Simon & Garfunkel (in the 60s heirarchy)



    they are good though. sometimes they are awe-inspiring. they put some strange, melancholy beauty onto tape
