Nothing will ever be as great as the"Wilson directed albums" that inspired TLOS. It's easy pickings to negatively compare this concept to that, which agreeably misses the mark.
However, this is as strong a batch of tunes BW has delivered since 1988, and it should be noted as such. The individual songs are sweet,melodic, and beautifully arranged. No, it's not "Pet Sounds", but nothing else ever will be. After the total disasters that were "Imagination" and "Gettin' In Over My Head", we finally have some material worthy of the Brian Wilson brand name. Amongst a current musical landscape I can only describe as desolate, that should be good enough.
