The romantic numbers were carefully and sincerely written. The long imagistic songs were evocative without being obvious."

"Surfin'," their debut single, is also good, and one of the few Beach Boys tracks that could be said to have a garage-like quality. It does afford a glimpse of the group as they sounded when they were a true band in the studio, before most of their parts were played by session musicians."

The fact that Cohen does more real singing on this album can be seen as both a blessing and a curse -- while his voice sounds more strained, the songs are delivered with more passion than usual."
