F09766 - The Beach Boys "That's Why God Made the Radio" CD
I waited too long
I waited too long to open it & play. I love the Beach Boys. Been to see them in concert at least 5 times in past 25 years. I already have most of the songs on the Greatest Hits CD that is included, but it is a good mix. As far as the new CD, I would tell them, this is why God created retirement. I really wish I had opened it up 2 weeks earlier, it would have gone back.
Let me start by saying I love the Beach Boys! Grew up loving their music. The Fifty Years of Hits CD was good, some of my favorites were not on it, but enjoyed it. The other CD to be honest, not so much. I could not see spending that much for one CD. I returned mine.
We love the Beach Boys!
I gave this to husband for Father's Day.
Unfortunately the CD "That's Why God Made the Radio" skipped several songs and didn'y play parts of others. I returned for exchange. I hope the next one works and comes in soon!
Bought one for myself gave one as a gift, very happy!
Mellow and Bittersweet
Classic Beach Boys "sound. For summer people and beach bums alike,the Beach Boys have been the soundtrack of our lives....good times,days and nights at the beach,love,the future was ahead of us.This CD is "grown up" Beach Boys.Songs reflecting on life.Memories of life as it was.Instead of songs abt the end of the day or summer,these songs reflect a life "lived".Each song touched me. The Beach Boys "grew up" along the way and so did we.Beach Boys continue to tell our stories just from --a different perspective.Heartwarming,bittersweet-Is this a "farewell" CD from the Beach Boys? I hope not.
Sometimes the volume of the music seems to overtake the lyrics.(my only complaint)
I love the Beach Boys but...
I love the Beach Boys and listen to them throughout the summer.I am glad to see them still performing and recording. Summer isn't summer without them. They are an American institution. I was really looking forward to this CD set. I am open minded enough to give the new music a chance and found I really liked the quirky song about Bill and Sue and our fascination with reality shows. With time I am sure I will like some of the other songs too. I was, however, disappointed in the CD of the older songs. My favorites were missing and there weren't very many songs on the CD. I expected a lot more songs for 50 years of hits!
I really enjoyed the CDs. As shown above, I found the music uplifting in these stressful times. I especially liked the new CD and the music with it. It was fun to listen to the older songs on the 50 years of hits also. Now I feel ready to hit the road!!
Listened to both cd's few days ago & absolutely loved them! Been a fan of the Beach Boys for many years:)
50 Years of Hits is fabulous!!!
The cd titled "50 Years of Hits" was GREAT! However. we were all very disappointed in the CD titled "That's Why God Made The Radio". It just is not up to the standards of the Beach Boys style of music. Didn't like it at all. I would only recommend the "50 Years of Hits".
WHATS NOT TO LIKE!!!
We grew up with THE BEACH BOYS. We all can sign along with the music. Summer would not be summer without this great and everlasting sound. Great new CD. We too will wear this out enjoying every minute. We should feel blessed to have the Beach Boys able to continue this music entertainment.
Love love love Brian Wilson and this has to rate as one of his best. The songs, the melodies, the harmonies, classic Beach Boys. Bought this as a Father's Day present for my husband and had to give it to him as soon as it arrived. It;s been playing non stop and just keeps getting better. "That's why God made Brian Wilson"
I loved both CD's. They are great listening and brings back a lot of memories. I actually wish they would have recorded both CD's in the present time since I think they still have remarkable voices. Thank you Beach Boys and QVC!
