Jon-Luc Arago, The idea of talking about a car and being sentimental for Ole Betsey is what makes it so cool. Brian didn't give a shit and wanted to have fun. Not everything has to be as serious as pet sounds. Compare it to the Beatles and the Stones first few albums. They weren't any better. Remember, these songs are Brian telling a story about California that he saw and imagined. That's excellent, man. Ryan Atkinson, your comments are also very harsh. The Hotroddica comment was great analysis. And it helped me to realize that Brian was able to make a song talking about his car, part by part. Man how legendary is that? I think that's cool, interesting and funny. Not everything has to be like Pet Sounds and Smile, you know?

Y'all must be listening to a different album than me. I love this record, especially in MONO. Beach Boys RULE!
Mave
This album was just fun, filled with their beautiful harmonies, and another piece of art from Brian. 9/10

A concept album about cars could've worked, even in 1963 before any group ever thought about making an artistic statement through the long player, but this album is just bad execution all around. The best songs here are already on earlier albums. "Be True to Your School" is downright silly fun in the true Beach Boys vein. But the rest of the material here is clearly reaching for more than it could carry. Clearly assembled by Capitol to cash in on the hot rod craze and to put more Beach Boys product on store shelves.

Rating: B-This car-themed concept album was rush-released while Surfer Girl was still fresh in the shops. Not only that, but it contains four tracks that appeared on prior albums: the already mentioned title track, "Shut Down," and "Our Car Club," plus "409," one of the better songs on Surfin' Safari. I guess Capitol wanted to capitalize on the era's car craze similar to how they had smartly exploited the surfing fad, but this resulting album is definitely a few steps back in terms of overall quality, as Brian (mostly with Christian) simply didn't have enough time to write enough quality songs (or properly produce some of them). Only "Spirit Of America," an exquisite falsetto-flavored ballad (but of course), is really worthy of being considered for any "best of" compilation among the new tracks, and too many other offerings are largely listenable but instantly forgettable Beach Boys-by-numbers. As for the best of the rest, "Ballad Of Ol' Betsy" is another pretty ballad (about a car, naturally), the very Grease-like "Be True To Your School" (a U.S. top 10 hit and the only non-car song on the album) has a naive charm even if it's also juvenile and corny, "Car Crazy Cutie" is minor but enjoyable doo-wop, "No-Go Showboat" is amusing and melodic, and the sober "A Young Man Is Gone" (a tribute to James Dean) is notable for being a rare a capella effort (their first). Still, none of these songs are standouts, the other new ones not mentioned even less so, and the album deserves further demerits for including repeated tracks and for its crass commercialism.

Crass - clearly concocted to cash in on the then-current car craze. Several tracks from earlier records are repeated (title track, which had just come out on Surfin' Safari; "409," which already seems like an antique compared to Brian's more serious current efforts). And most of the hastily recorded new ones, written quickly around Roger Christian drag race lyrics, are weak. The only strong material is the melodramatic "Ballad Of Ole' Betsy"; the corny, but hummable single "Be True To Your School"; and "A Young Man Is Gone," Brian's car song rewrite of Bobby Troup's brilliant a capella piece "Their Hearts Were Full Of Spring."

Rating: MediocreWhile the time gaps between Surfin' Safari and Surfin' U.S.A., and then between Surfin' U.S.A. and Surfer Girl, worked out to a tight-but-respectable 6 months, the gap between Surfer Girl and this one came out to less than a month, and everything surrounding the hurried release of this album rubs me the wrong way. Around the time of the recording sessions of Surfer Girl (scattered dates between May and June of 1963), Capitol decided to put together a compilation of car songs recorded on their label, including "Shut Down" (which would grant the compilation its title) and "409" even though the band hadn't given permission. The band then decided that the best way to handle this situation was to release its own car-themed album as soon as possible, and the band was back in the studio in early September (just before the release of Surfer Girl). Of course, on such a rushed schedule, the band couldn't come up with a full set of 12 tracks, and so they recorded 8 new songs and filled out the rest with previously released car-centric songs. Yup, in addition to "409" and "Shut Down," this album also contains "Little Deuce Coupe" and "Our Car Club," which means that the band found a way to release the latter two songs on two different "full-length" albums within 3 weeks of each other. There's a term to describe the music industry back in the early 60s, and it rhymes with "custard truck."

Look, I get that the group was under a lot of pressure to keep recording new material while touring virtually non-stop, but didn't someone have ANY better ideas? This is one of the most pointless and vapid albums the group ever did (well, until the late seventies and early eighties anyway). Clearly cut just for the record company to make a couple more bucks on the then-current car craze, the songs just don't work. What hurts the most, and what merits such a low score, is that the title track and '409' were previously released, so if you have them it's not worth it to buy this album; moreover, they're the best songs here. What you have left is 'Be True To Your School', which has some good vocals and music, but the corny lyrics are distracting. It's a real shame in the case of 'Ballad of Ole' Betsy', because it could be a beautiful song in the vein of 'Surfer Girl', until you realize that the whole emotional delivery from Brian Wilson is about a car. The rest of the album isn't even worth talking about, just your typical sub-par lyrics and predictable arrangements that rarely excite and fail to hold your interest.

Singling out cars from girls and surfing makes for a concept album that's 90% compilation and about 20% good. I suppose if you're a real-life motorhead you'll dig Encyclopedia Hotroddica songs like 'Little Deuce Coupe', which runs down his car's mods like a fucking Speed channel special (Updated lyrics courtesy of the Capn 'I got all the Chinese stickers I can fit on the body, it sits two millimeters off the ground and has a tailpipe the size of a Peterbilt'!). I think is damn near unlistenable, especially the 'I got the pink slip, daddy!' snotty little boast, plus the fact that it's really just 'Shut Down' with a couple of different notes. Otherwise, we hear such spicy metaphors as car-as-girl ('Ballad of Ol' Betsey', the hilariously clueless 'Cherry, Cherry Coupe', which begs for the line 'Get to pop her in all four gears!') girl-as-car ('Car Crazy Cutie', which would be hilarious only if it talked about how nothing gets her pussy hotter than the sticky feel of a genuine naugahyde seat cover as it bonds to her naked, moist buttocks.) cars-as-excuse-for-very-homoerotic-male-bonding-sessions ('Our Car Club', which I have to remind you, makes initiates go through a 'very rough' trial period, sucked on Surfin' Safari and sucks now, which also goes for '409', which is as loose as a 3-week old corpse). Of particularly funny note is 'No Go Showboat', where the guys defensively boast that their car is a real looker, though it gets wasted in the quarter mile against an ice cream truck. Never before has performance incompetence been praised so highly, at least since Motley Crue's 'Ten Seconds to Love' from Shout At The Devil.Capn's Final Word: Conceptualize love songs to your crankshaft. Clunky.
