Isn’t It Time For The Beach Boys?

With the new Beach Boys album out for a few days, it’s interesting to look at the critical and commercial reaction to the album. Most telling is the #1 position on Amazon, where the album has been since release. Even nicer are the customer reviews -even allowing for Amazon reviewers being kinder than the paid critics, the reaction is very good. Mike Love, who mentioned the Amazon chart a few times at the Hollywood Bowl, will be happy.

Metacritic is a useful guide to critical reaction, and the current reviews are more solid than spectacular, which is probably decent given the recent album reputation for the group.  The main thing is, with a Jay Leno performance last night, the Beach Boys are back in the limelight. And isn’t it time?
