Brian Wilson : Smile
Smile is unarguably the most long-awaited album in modern pop history. It’s been more than 37 years since the title first appeared on a label release schedule, intended as the January 1967 follow-up to the groundbreaking art-rock of the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds. But Smile never made its initial release date. Today, this album is not a mere reconstruction of past performances, but something entirely new, a serious summation of a project that has been gestating for nearly four decades.
Rolling Stone
– 5 stars out of 5
– “[With] brief bridge melodies, youthful harmonies more precise and uplifting now…and an enthralling profusion of instrumental colors. Trombone, timpani, theremin and tenor sax brush by and disappear; a banjo shows its head; strings vibe around…”
Entertainment Weekly
– “With a new melodic idea occurring every 45 seconds on average, it’s a gorgeous trip back to a time when anything seemed possible…”
– Grade: A
Uncut
– 5 stars out of 5
– “Much of it harks back, both lyrically and musically, to the past….SMILE is likely to remain a unique and unlikely moment of retrieval, restoration and renaissance.

The Doors : The Doors

The first Doors album was an important development in the evolution of rock, representing the dark underbelly of the ’60s counterculture, the Jekyll to the Beatles/Beach Boys’ Hyde. The Doors were the antithesis of windblown Californian pop. Dark, brooding and alienated, every element of the quartet’s metier was unveiled on their debut album. In Jim Morrison they posessed one of rock’s authoritative voices, while the group’s dense instrumental prowess reflected his lyrical mystery. Highly literate, they wedded Oedipian tragedy with counter-culture nihlism and, in “Light My Fire”, expressed exotic images previously unheard in pop. Howlin’ Wolf, Brecht and Weill are acknowledged as musical reference points, a conflict between the physical and cerebral that give THE DOORS its undiluted tension. Or you can just enjoy it as a brilliant album that sucks you in as it breathes out the ’60’s.

Rolling Stone
– 5 stars out of 5
– Included in “The Rolling Stone Hall Of Fame”
– “…A stoned, immaculate classic…”
