The Beach Boys Surprisingly Strange Discography and History: Part 15

We finally reached the 1970s. There’s a lot to say about this one and what was going on with the band around this time so let’s get into it.

20/20 despite it all, did do better than Friends, in Europe it was a somewhat big hit even if in the US once again, it didn’t sell very well.

Baroque pop at its most poppy and admittedly simple sounding sometimes. However much like the beach boys early 60s albums the sheer amount of positive energy here is infectious. Forever might just be the best non brian wilson song the band ever did. Absolutely worth the listen if you’ve enjoyed any previous albums from them.
