All Summer Long Album Tracklist

One of the greatest bands in Rock History... | Reviewer: Steve | 5/27/2007

A classic, full of great rockers and more sophisticated than earlier efforts. Brian is still doing some car songs, including well-deserved hits like "I Get Around," with its famous a capella intro, and the slightly more primitive, but equally exciting "Little Honda." There's also the occasional churning surf rocker, like the haunting, angst-ridden "Don't Back Down" - but even that stuff is really solid. He's also moving in a more sophisticated, introspective direction, with increasingly complex arrangements and incredibly rich harmonies: the title track; "Hushabye"; the fantastic, up-tempo love song "Wendy"; Brian's sincere falsetto lead on the silly teen drama "We'll Run Away"; and "Girls On The Beach," whose modulations and harmony are so intricate it's literally confusing. Unfortunately, the few low points are truly low, with unlistenable lyrics that Mike Love recently convinced a jury were all his fault (topical 50's throwbacks like "Drive-In" and the pathetic high school nostalgia piece "Do You Remember"). There's also a bogus "bonus" track consisting of aimless, spliced-together studio chatter ("Our Favorite Recording Sessions").
