This is the most uneven "two-fer" in the Beach Boys catalog. 15 Big Ones is mostly uninteresting oldies covers mixed in with lightweight originals, but it has some good moments, particularly "It's OK," and "Had to Phone Ya," and the covers of "In the Still of the Night" and "Just Once in My Life" are stunningly beautiful. Most of the rest, however, is below average, and "The TM Song" is atrocious. Love You, however, is one of the three best Beach Boys albums. It finds Brian Wilson back with his creative talent and it is a total blast. The first half is great fun, particularly with the raunchy "Let Us Go On This Way" and the ultra-catchy "Johnny Carson." The second half is full of ballads that rival Pet Sounds in their beauty. Particularly moving are "The Night Was So Young," "I'll Bet He's Nice," and "Let's Put Our Hearts Together," but the other ballads are almost as great.
