I don't review music or movies as I find them to be a highly subjective subject and open to a vast array of opinion which may influence people in ways not meant to and I prefer to sway no one's opinion. The "beach sound" WAS my high school years. Everyone wanted to be on the West Coast surfin' and watchin' babes in convertibles. The Beach Boys have withstood the test of time for 50 years. I am glad I was a part of that era as it is still something I get to look back on with a fondness I can't begin to define.
