Review by: dumanglOn 17 Sep 2007 at 22:48 CEST
This album came out the same year as Carl Wilson's self-titled album (a time when the band usually strained relationships were at an especially low point). The two albums are about the same except that Carl's album is pretty good and this one sucks. As Mike Love's only officially released album, this gets a rating of 10/10 for historical interest and about 4/10 for musical value. It's actually not nearly as bad as it's reputation. The songs are generally uninspired, but not gratingly bad like "Summer of Love". Mike voice is so nasal on some tracks that it almost seems like a joke. This is such a shame since Mike's voice can be exquisite. It's hard to believe this is the same Mike who sang "Meant For You" and "All I Wanna Do". For someone who didn't want to "fk with the formula" the lyrics are sort of wierd and there aren't any surf or car songs. The highlights are probably "Rockin' The Man In The Boat", a delightfully offensive song about female masturbation and a peeping Tom (or peeping Mike) and "Paradise Found" a lovely duet with Joanie Sommers. Serious Beach Boys fans will probably find "Looking Back With Love" interesting, but if you're looking for great music, check out the albums by Mike's cousins.
