Brian Wilson
CD Reviews
Review by Steve Alspach
Some albums have been labeled ahead of their time, but this one takes the cake. The quantum leap that Brian Wilson tried to take between the "Fun, Fun, Fun" Beach Boys of two years prior to this sprawling paean to American music left him severely fried and made for great fodder for rumors and speculation.

Brian Wilson - Songwriter 1962-1969 DVD
Review by Gary Hill
If you’ve seen a lot of documentaries on the Beach Boys or Brian Wilson, you’ll probably learn nothing new from this DVD.

Brian Wilson - Songwriter 1969-1982 DVD
Review by Diane Hill
The Beach Boys hits in the 60s were mostly composed by Brian Wilson. In the early 70s his mental health started to decline and his drug use escalated.

Review by Josh Turner
Out of all the progressive rock relief projects, this one features the biggest names: Barry and Robin Gibb (The Bee Gees), Paul Von Merten, Randell Kirsch and Brian Wilson (The Beach Boys), Boy George (Culture Club), Steve Winwood (Traffic), Rick Wakeman & Jon Anderson (Yes), Dewey Bunnell & Gerald Beckley (America), and a handful of others.
The Beach Boys - The Beach Boys And The Satan DVD
Review by Greg Olma
One of the things that I always judge a release by is the title and packaging. In DVD terms, if they call it a documentary on a band but all you get is a bunch of videos and old interviews, then I feel that the makers have misled the consumer.
Various Artists - The Coolest Christmas
Review by Gary Hill
This disc, as many various artists compilations, is a mixed bag. Some of the cuts here are very good, while others are forgettable, and many fall somewhere in between.
