It sounds nothing like the classic Beach Boys familiar world wide, and yet, it is the most cohesive, unified and, to my ears, "Beach Boys" album since Today and Summer Days. It was written and produced almost entirely by Brian Wilson, but it features the distinctive vocal input of each group member in roughly equal proportions.
Pet Sounds and Smile are, of course, masterworks, but they had much lyrical involvement from outsiders - Tony Asher and Van Dyke Parks, respectively - and Brian sang lead vocals on a disproportionate number of tracks. The Sunflower-era albums are strong and highly underrated but, with Brian's decreased involvement, reveal a number of disparate creative interests taking the band in different directions.
Therefore, Love You is the natural progression from the early-mid s Beach Boys foundational template - Brian writing the songs, and the boys singing the tunes. It's a shame that Brian and the group couldn't keep going in a similar mold for the next decade or so but sadly, after just one more Brian Wilson-orchestrated album the unreleased Adult Child , our main man would again retreat and the group would again be lead in a number of different directions most of them negative as Mike Love, Al Jardine, and Bruce Johnston took up the reigns.
Thankfully, we have Love You as a one-off reminder of how things could've been for the post-popularity Beach Boys. It would be fantastic if we could now see the unreleased Adult Child released in full several tracks were included on the box set. Until then, I'm just a dreamer. Great album! Brian did all of the bass lines for the record with an ARP and a Moog synthesizer. One person found this helpful.
Love You is one of the strangest albums Flawed but beautiful. Love You is one of the strangest albums the Beach Boys have ever put out. But it's also one of their best. It will confuse many people, but once you "get it", it resonates with you. I cannot recommend it enough. Facebook is showing information to help you better understand the purpose of a Page.

The 'waivering' referenced previously is an effect I guarantee was a decided factor prior to printing the mother plate for this pressing. Essentially limit bass, use vari-speed like old VHS on everything but vocals if you listen closely it does not occur on vocals. I would know as a mixing and mastering engineer.
I believe she wanted a "vintage" sound added to her L. If you expect it to sound like Spotify or your CD, it's not the product for you The CD raced its way right into regular listening rotation, becoming one of my favorite albums ever.
I got a record player for Christmas two seasons ago and never used it as I had no albums for it. I finally broke the player out of it's box and set it up in a way to force myself to get out there and start purchasing some vinyl. It comes of no surprise that when it came time to finally purchase my first album, Lana Del Rey won the choice. Not only was it very affordable, it was packaged nicely and sounds great.
Vinyl has a sound of it's own that is not matched by other media formats, and it fits Lana perfectly. So happy to have this! Very satisfied.
Let the vinyl addiction begin! It's hard to describe the aesthetic and tone of this or any other Lana Del Rey album. Lana creates nostaglia that intentionally subverts your expectations.
Her music is powerful and helpless at the same time. She's struggled in relationships and with things like anxiety just like the rest of us. The difference is she bum rushes those feelings, while the rest of us pretend they don't exist.
This album is beauty and sadness harmonized into a perfect combination of chic and vintage. I don't know if it's something you "get" or "feel", and it's not for everyone, but those of us who vibe with her music see our own struggles reflected therein.
I have to say that this is one of the most unusual and most successful debut albums I have ever heard, from an artist that even a few months ago I did not know existed. Both lyrically and musically, the album takes us into an alternate world, a world populated by young women who are fatally attracted to seriously flawed men, but this doesn't seem to bother them.
They not only accept it, they revel in it. Although most of the songs are built around this theme, redundancy is avoided because the characters are vividly detailed and the musical presentations are diverse. I would like to mention that any comparisons I make to musical genres or other artists must be considered approximations; the music on this album is highly original and frankly, rather difficult to describe.
The next track, my favorite, "Off To The Races", is completely different, an upbeat hip-hop track. In this song a girl with "a Las Vegas past" is kept and well-tended by a gangster type who " This relationship would seem dysfunctional to most, but the picture Lana paints makes it sound valid, desirable and a lot of fun. Then too, why feel sorry for someone who doesn't feel sorry for herself?
Lana's characters are content with the lives they are living. I hope Lana gets to make a second album because I certainly want to see where she takes us next. See all reviews from the United States.
