The Beach Boys Surprisingly Strange Discography and History: 35
Summer In Paradise

After 1988 the band had a short resurgence in popularity which was due to them having their first number 1 hit since Good Vibrations with Kokomo it pretty much gave Mike a big ego boost and the guy already had a big ego.

Now he WAS a hit maker without Brian, technically speaking he proved himself, so now he would become the leader…Al was fired so everyone seems like they didn’t wanna be there, ... read more


Now I know why Brain Wilson hates Mike Love.


Oh no Beach Boys. Oh no.

Tbh if it was any other artist making this, it'd probably be a moderate 30-40. But this is the Beach Boys. THE BEACH BOYS.

I think this is the worst album I’ve listened too. Like yeah ive given other albums a zero but holy shit none of them are so bad they end up offending your ears.



I listened to this album for the first time over 2 years ago and wow, I really sugar coated how bad this album was when I was 16, I gave it a 50/100 because I found it too boring and the funny moments were too funny. I'm back here at 19 years old, after not hearing this album since then and how do I feel now?
