Brian Wilson - Brian Wilson (1988) Retail CD
The best thing Brian Wilson has turned out since "Sunflower" (1970). You hold your breath for the first few seconds but when the chorus of "Love and Mercy" kicks in you know you're in for a treat. The album is really Brian with helpers; most of the songs are co-written with others and/or co-produced as well. Needless to say, some combinations work better than others. One of the best is with Jeff Lynne (ELO, Travelling Wilburys) on "Let it shine", which combines the best elements of both men's song-writing and producing talents - curiously it's instantly recognisable as a Wilson song and amore… Lynne song. There are no dud tracks on this album although the eight minute opus "Rio Grande" may not be to everyone's taste as it is a little self-indulgent. The album has a strong 80s feel about in places where it is synthesiser heavy. Having said that, this album has a number of treats on it that make it worth buying - "Night Time", "Meet Me In My Dreams Tonight", "Love and Mercy", "Melt Away" would all grace any album, and the a capella fun of "One for the Boys" might just remind you of a certain Californian group! There are a good number of better Brian Wilson efforts that you ought to have before this (Pet Sounds, Friends, Today!, All Summer Long) but it is a good solid album and definitely worth the cash.
