The reviewer below me feels that he hasn't gotten enough and has been ripped off. Well, if you're looking for the Beach Boys Greatest Hits Volume 1 and 2, um, buy those albums instead. Anyone that looks over the tracks before he purchases would have known that this isnt' it. But in a way, to the more serious fan of the group (and you're invited, casual fans, all it takes is one listen to Pet Sounds) it is! Instead of feeling empty, you'll be wanting more, more, more. The influence of the Beach Boys is shown here, whether it is the 'unfortunate' influence on the throwaway pop of the day (check out the concert medley, something very few bands pull off today but countless teenyboppers attempt) or the trancey shadow that "Til I Die" casts over the 1990's more advanced rockers. (The first song on Spritualized's 'Ladies and Gentlemen" album is great, but it can't hold a candle to this gem). While so many releases and reviews are dedicated to endlessly reaffirming Brian's genius (and this collection once again does its job in this department), Endless Harmony also dispells the myth that the Beach Boys were compromised of 1 genius and 4/5 also rans. Al's lead vocal on 'Help Me Rhonda' was about as honest as pop music could get in 1965, his 30 year Loop production shows that he learned something in all those years of studio work, and that he isn't such a slouch after all. Before it all went wrong, Mike and Bruce's campy songs (Endless Harmony and Brian's Back) at the very least show that at the start the descent into parody wasn't such a bad idea, at the best they offer a knowing wink to historians of the band. Dennis comes into his own (though sadly, on only two songs and only one of his own) on this collection, it should whet the appetite for the Brother re-releases on which he plays a much larger part. Carl's vocals and contributions make new "soul" artists like Eric Benet sound like English skiffle players. In summary, a brilliant collection, and very frustrating too-why not 10 discs instead of only 1?
