With a beautiful tune, and a universal sentiment, Shelter is a very good song. It would have been a standout on some Beach Boys albums, and on many other records, but here it is only top of the second tier.
The vocal interplay between Brian and Jeff Foskett that reminds one of the classic early Brian/Mike duets, but with Brian now in a reversed role. The production is possibly a bit too AOR, and a more 'classic' Brian touch may have taken this to the top rung. But if this is the sort of tune Brian is bringing out as his standard, happy days are definitely back!
