New Brian Wilson Album Coming Soon

Brian Wilson's album Smile has quite a story behind it. Begun in 1966, it was released in 2004 and now holds the all time highest score for an album at Metacritic. (Actually it is tied with a Loretta Lynn and a Led Zeppelin but edges them out on tie-breakers). Wilson is an acknowledged genius whose groovy harmonics fooled us shallow thinkers early on but who has always been known as top-tier to those in the top tier. All that is background to say that Wilson has a new album scheduled for release on August 17th called Brian Wilson Reimagines Gershwin. I've heard of that guy, too.
