That Lucky Old Sun: Brian Wilson

Okay Melbourne, it’s time to brush away the chill of an endless winter. No more shades of grey and dribbling noses; it’s going to be technicolour sunshine and rainbows once you pop this in the player. With his slightly goofy, laid-back style, Brian has created a gorgeous collection of harmonious wonder that sends you back to the glory days of Pet Sounds.

The theme of the album is ‘a day in the life of LA with Brian’, and clearly he loves every minute of it. Voluptuous harmonies and abundant strings just make this an absolute pleasure for Beach Boys fans, and those who never gave up on Brian during his darkest days. So be grateful to him for that warm breeze you feel and that permanent grin you get while listening to this lovely album.
