Beach Boys classic songs are not enhanced by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra playing on top of them. What possessed Brian to condone this travesty? I can understand the money grabbing minor group member giving it the nod...but this
just beggars belief!  well this is yet another "BB" album which won't be seeing any of my money.

Agreed.   Considering in a recent interview, Brian mentioned two BB classics that aren't even on the album, I don't think he's paying it much mind.  

And with the album seemingly doing well (aftering hearing a couple songs on XM Sirius, I have no idea why), you can probably count on a Volume 2.  

To me, this is up there with the constant repackaging of the hits and the many many reissues of Pet Sounds.

I hear that it's not your cup of tea.  But I don't get the anger and charges of money-grabbing and beggar's belief.  It is flattering when the 'serious' world respects rock & roll enough to make such an album, I would think.  I have so much worse feelings about money grabbing and so forth when I see a new Mike Love related release/concert.   That's very transparently been there/heard that.  THAT is offensive to me.  What did the London Philharmonic Orchestra ever do to Brian other than send him checks?
