Album Review Haiku – The Beach Boys – Wild Honey (2017 Stereo Remix/Remaster)

Beautiful new mix
Laid back after “Smile” album
Sounds sweet as its name

Yes, the haiku pretty much says it all.  I bought the European pressing and it’s flat, quiet and really dynamic.  In a year when the Sgt. Pepper reissue grabbed so much attention, it’s good to see the Beach Boys holding their own.  The new Stereo mix is a real improvement over the duo-phonic version of yore.  I hear things in this new mix that I never knew were there.

It’s a laid back album with nothing to prove.  It was completely out of step with the times in 1967 and that’s what makes it so great.
