Review this album
Oct 31, 2010I was very happy to see Brian Wilson had a new album out after loving every bit of "That Lucky Old Son". I loved the more musical kind of approach he used on it so I was interested to hear his new album would be based on George Gershwin who wrote a lot of musical music in his life.
I don't know what happened! I guess somewhere during the recordings nobody had the guts to step up to Wilson and tell him his "Reimagines" were really forced and boring. Most of the tracks on the album have good arrangements and could be very nice instrumentals, but his voice is really not up to the task. It sounds all wrong and very forced. Some parts of his singing also sound very heavily modified. Like you're listening to a robot Wilson.
No, I won't be listening to this album anymore, it's a really bad one.… Expand
