One of the best that The Bobs have to offer, especially tracks 3, 6, 12, 13 and 14--but the rest are interesting and fun also.

The Beach Boys - Surf's Up as reviewed by joseph_blough

January 21, 2011
edited over 7 years ago
Though most Beach Boys aficionados will tell you that Pet Sounds is their greatest release, my personal belief is that this is the Beach Boy's finest album, and the one that is most indicative of the group as a whole. The first side shows the quirkiness of the group, and an early interest in the environmental, along with a dose of tunes delving into health, and human rights issues. Then we get to the second side, which I believe to be the best group of five songs ever assembled together on one side of an LP. From the beginning of the hypnotic pulse of Feel Flows, all the way to the last falsetto note of Surf's Up, this is one set of songs that I can listen to over and over, and its impact never seems to diminish.
