Gettin' in Over My Head album for sale Product Description



Gettin' in Over My Head album for sale by Brian Wilson was released Jan 13, 2008 on the Rhino (Label) label. Part of Brian Wilson's appeal has always been that, despite the sophistication of his songwriting and production skills, he is the eternal man-child. Gettin' in Over My Head CD music On GETTING' IN OVER MY HEAD, the 62-year-old ex-Beach Boy has lost neither his childlike innocence nor his knack for crafting pop-perfect mini-symphonies. His first studio recording in six years is closer to the vintage Beach Boys sound than any of his solo work to date, and Wilson's wide-eyed sense of wonder at the beautiful mysteries of the world is fully present. Gettin' in Over My Head CD music contains a single disc with 13 songs.   ...See Full Description

New Brian Wilson CD
The first studio album from Brian Wilson since 1998's Imagination is a winner if The Beach Boys are a favourite. The tunes are memorable and the harmonies continue to delight. The guest appearances from Elton John, Paul McCartney and Eric Clapton just add more variety to the sound. An excellent album of the same standard as Imagination.

A Forced effort...
Aside from the Waltz, most like Desert Drive sound like a forced effort, like trying to recreate Little Deuce Coupe. And the constant repition with friend Sir Paul,(a.k.a. Billy Shears?),how could two such great minds come up with such limited lyrics? Professor Brian has come so much farther than that, and is capable of so much more, if only those around him would step off the car and surf sound. Even Brians simplistic production of the then formerly Beach Boys;Love You album, refreshingly outshines Gettin' In Over My Head,"...if only then we had a chocolate bar, then we'd have world peace."

A grab bag of songs
Some of the songs date back to the late 80's. Others are from the mid 90's. A handful are recent. The fact that it's diffucult to tell which is which indicates that Brian is blissfully unaware of current musical trends. Of course, his audience is hardly the sort you'd find at an Alternate music festival, so I guess it hardly matters. Brian dances to his own drummer and invites us to dance to the tunes in his head. Highlights includes "How Can We Still Be Dancing" with Elton John performing an energized lead vocal. "Soul Searchin'" with an old recording with the late, great Carl Wilson as the lead vocalist. This is the same song that appeared on Solomon Burke's last CD. My personal favorite is "Saturday Morning In The City", maybe because it drives my wife nuts. Approach this CD without expectations except as a musical post card from an old friend to us all.

GOOD TO HAVE NEW BRIAN MUSIC!
This album has a rather rough feel to it. Some of Brian's lead vocals are scratchy, and a few of the songs are a little on the weak side. Particularly disappointing for me is "A Friend Like You" with Paul McCartney. Two legends of their caliber deserved a much better song. Still, despite some flaws, I give the overall package 4 stars. There is simply some great music here! "Desert Drive," with its falsetto harmonies, echoes back to the Beach Boys. "City Blues," with Eric Clapton on guitar, is highly effective, and the duet with Carl Wilson is superb. Several of these songs were originally slated for Brian's second, unreleased solo album, "Sweet Insanity." Among those titles are "Make A Wish," "Rainbow Eyes," and "Don't Let Her Know She's An Angel." The earlier versions may have been better vocally, yet the production on these new tracks is much sharper and crisper. Brian was wise to re-record them. When you pick up this set, do not expect a Beach Boys album. Do not even expect a polished product like the Sire "Brian Wilson" album or "Imagination." Do expect a package full of hook-laden, sing-along songs by the MASTER of that genre. Just enjoy it, and do not pick it apart. It is a danged good album.

three point five stars
The songwriting was stronger on Brian's first solo record, and his lead vocals were smoother on solo number two, but the production (courtesy of Brian himself) is better here, and Brian's thickly-layered backing vocals are as gorgeous as ever. Highlights: How Can We Still Be Dancin',Soul Searchin', Gettin' In Over My Head, City Blues, Fairy Tale, Don't Let Her Know She's An Angel.
