I agree - yet I'd say "Wonderfully" superb!  This LP has been part of my rather extensive life soundtrack since I first heard the opening notes.  I love the way Van Dyke writes his own story here - great memories for him, it sounds:

"The essence of our relationship was one of complete trust. From the get-go, we had a surreptitious joy in our role-reversals. It was Brian who opted to just coast in the vocals and honor me as a producer, blind trust." 

Though I'd argue that the vocals were much more than 'coasting' - they have the Brian Wilson vocal arrangment stamped all over the place, don't you think?

But I completely agree with this - "The tracks are peppered with great musicianship."

I love expanded re-releases!
