A Beach Boys album from 1968 that continued the organ-dominated sound of 1967's Smiley Smile album. A collection of little vignettes, some under a minute long, and many of staggering beauty.
Also contains Dennis Wilson's first two real compositions, Little Bird and Be Still, although the rest of the album is, as usual up to that point, primarily made up of Brian Wilson songs. Lyrical themes include Transcendental Meditation, birds in trees and directions to Brian Wilson's house. The album sold practically nothing and had no hit singles, but is now considered one of their best, namechecked by bands such as the High Llamas and Supergrass
