I could ramble for ages about how brilliant SMiLE woulda shoulda coulda been, but I'll let more capable users handle that on The SMiLE Sessions' page. In the aftermath of that album's demise, The Beach Boys relased Smiley Smile, a weird, stoned listen that (to be frank) baffles all expectations for a Pet Sounds II.
'Heroes and Villains' and 'Good Vibrations' are as brilliant as they're held to be; two daring slices of psych(ish)-pop with impeccable vocal arrangements, soaring melodies, and highly fragmented structures. The other tracks, while retaining some of the singles' wit and an abundance of quirkiness, are just a bit too raw and rushed to satisfy beyond novelty.
Make no mistake, hearing something like 'She's Goin' Bald' from the former Kings of Surf is absolutely hilarious. But it's not something I'd reach for on a regular basis. Gags can be fun the first couple times, but when you hear the baked chuckles of 'Little Pad' for the eightieth time, it's hard not to be a little impatient for 'Good Vibrations' to roll around.
I can see this being a major grower, though. Especially after coming around to the DIY brilliance of Love You.
