The Beach Boys, one of the world’s most iconic rock bands, has reunited to commemorate an unprecedented fiftieth anniversary. The recording marks the first Beach Boys’ album in decades to feature all surviving founders – Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks. The album finds the legendary ensemble recreating their timeless vocal harmonies, reminiscent of the sound that defined countless generations. Coinciding with a nation-wide tour, the album is an exhilarating milestone proving again why they are Billboard’s top-selling American rock band for albums and singles! A must own!
3 stars out of 4 – “…the group’s 29th studio work (including 2011’s The Smile Sessions) contains a number of elegant, shockingly beautiful moments that not only do justice to and expand on the sound of Southern California in the 1960s but serve as a bittersweet and at times heartbreakingly brilliant coda to five decades in music.” – Randall Roberts, The Los Angeles Times
