To celebrate their 50th anniversary, Beach Boys Brian Wilson, Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston, and David Marks reunited in Los Angeles’ Ocean Way Studios for That’s Why God Made The Radio
, the band’s 29th studio album, the first in decades to feature all of the band’s surviving original members. Produced by Brian Wilson and executive produced by Mike Love, the album’s eleven songs illustrate The Beach Boys’ unique and evocative West Coast story with the band’s timeless signature sound.
Classic Rock – 8/10
“The songs float in melody and nostalgia like every great Beach Boys song since Surf’s Up or Do It Again.”
Mojo – August 2012 - ****
“This album, at its best so wistfully reliving our golden yesterdays, ranks up there with Today!”
