Wilson & Alroy’s Record Reviews
It was pasted together from an incoherent array of sources, including some cheesy covers; new tracks by both Dennis and the hyper-tacky Bruce Johnston (“The Nearest Faraway Place”); a couple of Brian’s absolutely brilliant out-takes from Smile […]
Brian (Wilson) is fading out of the picture fast, only co-writing FIVE of these 12 songs.
