Imagine yourself sitting in your favorite chair, one lazy afternoon, you've just poured yourself a favorite drink, leaning back in the chair...closing your eyes...aaaahhh. Suddenly a familiar sound sneaks into the very room where you're sitting...filling the air with soothing and fulfilling sounds...walls of breathtaking vocals and superb musical themes. The wallpaper crumples with joy and your ears are caressed with omnipresent beautiful sounds.

It seems that every bird in your garden sings along, trees and flowers have never seemed more beautiful.

So what could induce this wonder, other than god? Well, I'll tell you......a smile can!

In this particular case the smile comes from Brian Wilson, yes he of Beach Boys fame, he has created a unique and brilliant epic, to go into music history!!

Smile is the appropriate title of this masterpiece!

If you can imagine the wonderful vocal arrangements and supreme musical compositions of Beach Boys and then add some operatic style (a blend of Zappa...soft edition and elaborate pop sequences...with a twist of modern cabaret and add to that some very very brilliant musical infectious compositions)....then you are almost there!

I've always been intrigued by the: Beatles vs. Beach Boys syndrome back in the sixties, as I thought (and still do) that Beatles were second to none, of course both groups have inspired many bands and still do. But you cannot compare those two groups!

However, this is a Brian Wilson album and as such it must be hailed as an absolute masterpiece! There's no doubt as to his talent, when writing and arranging music/vocals, it certainly must count as a modern day classical epic.

This is how Wilson, originally wanted his music to be and after all these years, I can only say: wow...the brilliance, the sheer talent, the fantastic arrangements, the music and by god, the ever extraordinary vocals.

I can not even begin, to describe how much this American musician's impact are on the music today, as it has influenced almost anyone (direct or indirect) that we hear!

I will not mention a special track on this superb album, as every track is excellent, but i will state this: no one in his right mind, be that a prog freak or a music freak in general..can do without this "historic piece of music", well maybe with the exception of hard core prog metal freaks and avant garde/fusion fans.

I will rate this fine album as high as possible, as it is to me one of the rare wonders in this age and tide of our time! I'm stunned and amazed!

And the cover includes a nice thick booklet deluxe. So, go buy this beautiful epic. If that doesnt make you Smile I dunno what will?!
