Robert,

Don't feel bad.  I had to pull up Brian's solo discography to figure out what WIRWFC referred to.  Probably because it doesn't come up in conversation as much as GIOMH, BWPS, or TLOS. 

I don't remember how much that album was promoted when it was released in 2005, but I'm assuming not well.  I know it wasn't reviewed very well.  Just a year or so off Smile, and with covers of two BB Xmas classics, I would think it would've at least cracked the top 100 for a week.

all true, kds. But recently there have been some very good reminisces RE WIRWFC, so I am quite looking forward to getting to it during the aural review !

    We'll see what happens but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that No Pier Pressure has a shot at being Brian's most successful solo album to date.  Who knows if it gets good reviews and receives strong promotion maybe it will be.   And I'm not rooting for the album to be hit so Brian can make more money.  Brian obviously is well off financially.  But I'm pulling for the album to do well so maybe younger music fans who might only have casual interest in Brian and/or The Beach Boys might check it out and see that Brian's still got it.   Maybe it won't hit number 3 like TWGMTR but I think even Brian himself would be pretty blown away if one of his solo albums even cracked the top ten.

yes, so the existing highwater marks are #21 TLOS and #13 BWPS (thanks Andrew). A single digit BW album would be most welcome. Buy it twice !
