Brian Wilson- "That Lucky Old Sun"
POP MATTERS "Four years later, That Lucky Old Sun answers all doubters with a big ol’ burst of that classic Beach Boys feel. The central theme of this album is looking back to ‘50s and ‘60s Los Angeles, so any concerns about aiming for modern production sounds can be tossed out the window. Clearly laying out this retro thesis right from the start, the album opens with its title track, a remake of a tune made famous by Frank Sinatra in 1949. Despite songwriting billed to Gillespie/Smith, there’s no doubt this is the beginning of a Brian Wilson record."
