If the first nine tracks of 'That's Why God Made The Radio' simply show that the Beach Boys have moved from Summer In Paradise territory to something like Holland, the tenth track takes us to the ultimate highs of Pet Sounds.
In simple terms, From There To Back Again is at least the best Beach Boys song since 'Til I Die. Indeed it belongs in the same universe as In My Room, Warmth Of The Sun, God Only Knows, Caroline No, Surf's Up, Break Away and 'Til I Die- songs that are amongst the greatest creations in any art form, and the reason why Brian Wilson needs to be revered as one of the greatest American artists in any genre.
Late in his seventh decade, almost drowned by a flood of water under the bridge, Brian Wilson has come back and showed his mastery of the pocket symphony and the ability for melody, harmony and words to come together perfectly.This was one of the songs written new for the album.
