The question is - how does "That Lucky Old Sun" stack up to Wilson's catalog?
If the scale was a 10 being "Pet Sounds" and a 1 being his 2004 flop "Gettin' In Over My Head" I would rate his latest release a 5.
"That Lucky Old Sun" includes masterful melodies found on tracks such as "Forever She Will Be My Surfer Girl" and "Going Home" But it also includes forgettable tracks including the first three songs "That Lucky Old Sun" "Morning Beat" and "Good Kind of Love."
An interesting element to the album is Wilson's narrative tracks that contain some clever and some really bad rhymes.
This album shows Wilson's genius and his struggles.
