Format: Audio CD
I must admit to cherry picking this new re-issue by downloading the stereo version of Good Vibration plus a few other tracks. But sadly I was most disappointed by this, the first official release of Good Vibrations in stereo. It sounded good but was barely in stereo and I much prefer the unofficial 'Unreleased stereo mix of 2nd version' that may be found on 'A Pocket Symphony - the making of Good Vibrations'
I would be interested in other views on this please.

Brian Wilson completed "smile' in 2006 and won two grammys for it!. But this is the beach boys attempt to finish 'smile' as best they could. And it's still brilliant. And finally you get a stereo version of this great cd. This has truly great songs on it like 'wonderful' and 'wind chimes' and the huge hits 'good vibrations' and 'heroes and villians" The smile sessions are out on a boxset and 2cd version as well. But here you get what came out back in the day. The sound is great on this cd too. Now if they would PLEASE release 'wild honey' in stereo too.

This album came out as all the real fans know after the real Smile was shelved for so many years.Any album that includes Good Vibrations and Heroes and Villains must be reasonable and this one is. It has always suffered because it was obvious Smile was going to be something special and this is not that album.
Here we have different hastily put together songs and bits of songs and even different versions on this French import.
Fans over the years have been hard on Smiley Smile , I for one always enjoyed With me Tonight which is probably my favorite I also like Well your welcome to come both of these I think could and should have been on Smile, but for some reason were not added.Getting hungry is a departure and certainly hints at their next album Wild Honey. The bonus tracks make this a worth while addition to the die hard fans like me.
I wonder why the French album has a different cover ?

Format: Vinyl
Background:

One of those questions that will be posed concerning the Beach Boys recording output is that if emotive, atmospheric well calculate Brilliance tha was Pet Sounds, could it ever be topped? I decided some years ago that it's not worth wasting time on more collecting old 60's releases, I sold unsatisfying Best of Collections but kept a nice price edition of a Pet Sounds which I had actually grown to be very attached to, I was somewhat intrigued about Smiley Smile, had heard snippets of it, but never really prioritised in getting it UNTIL NOW when I ordered 'Party', `Pet Sounds' and 'Smiley Smile' on vinyl the same day.

They say Smiley Smile is not for everyone, does that have to mean it's bad? We will just have to see about that!

Actual Review
There is always these kind of discussion say Pet sound was more refined, it had an ethereal pop moment in God Only Knows, it was up close and personal, a departure from `surfin' and `Fun Fun Fun', and being majestic at that, it seemed beyond compare to other 60's releases. Especially as we turned to Brian Wilson passion for working in the studio, the famous pocket symphony arrangement and other things like it.

Smiley Smile is known for being a little bit of a mess, or the by-product from Brian's mental demise in being burned out - if there ever was an expression like that in the 60's.

But the beach boys all were troupers, they kept going and some of the even still does!

'Smiley Smile' to me was instantly intriguing, known for containing a lush Summer of Love anthem in 'Good Vibrations' one of the few Summer of Love anthems of the day that still leaves a deep impression after all these years.
