Brian Wilson 


Brian Wilson
It’s been 37 years since Capitol Records announced the follow-up to The Beach Boys’ teenage opus Pet Sounds. After being abandoned by Brian Wilson in ’67, SMiLE finally sees its first (legal) release in a complete form. It’s a new recording by Wilson and The Wondermints and it sounds remarkably like the old bootleg versions. Other than Wilson’s weakening vocals, this is a stunning piece of psychedelia that would’ve fit nicely between The Beatles’ Revolver and Sgt. Pepper. It’s been worth the wait.
