#385 Dennis Wilson – Pacific Ocean Blue

Dennis Wilson‘s Pacific Ocean Blue came out and went mostly unnoticed until later it developed a cult status. This is probably due to the fact that he died a few years later. He was the only Beach Boy who was a real surfer. He was briefly an acquaintance of Charles Manson who was a songwriter and a murderer.

This is a hard album to review. I cannot decide if I like it. I do not hate it, but I do not feel an instant connection to it. I guess it sits in a place that needs to be revisited eventually. The music is interesting and his voice is okay. It is an oddball of an album. He sounds sad on most of the songs. Suicidal sad. 6/10.
