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.
