    for a band that was (or still is) unfairly stereotyped for only playing "surf" music, you'd think the beach boys would have released more than one "surfing" album. surfin' usa is the band's only true/legit "surf" music album. this is hand's down the band's weakest album until carl and the passions. there aren't many highlights to the album since 5 of the 12 tracks are "surf" instrumentals. aside from "surfin usa" and "shut down", the main highlight of this album is "lonely sea", and that's mostly because that was an album only track. i also enjoy the cover of "misirlou", but that's really it aside from those 3 beach boys original highlights. this was a step backwards in direction after surfin sufari, but we all know the band would continue to make one step forward after another in direction in the albums that would soon follow this release.

    ** stars.
