At least I don't have to listen to Brinsley Schwarz!

Jazz generally does have a tune but they don’t necessarily play it to you.

Good choice

What do you consider to be their best...?

For me their go to is always, 'House On The Hill'.

Very strange cover for Lunch, I can see why it didn't sell in bucketloads.

"House on the hill" for me, as well, closely followed by "Friends....". Considering I usually have no problems with "odd" voices (Chapman, Verlaine, Corgan etc), it took me a while to appreciate Howard's voice

Love the Beach Boys. "Sunflower" is ok, but still has moments of joy. Been watching "Beach Boys" docu on Disney+. Nothing earth shattering or revelatory. Basically, Brian genius, rest of band felt undervalued, but without their harmony and Mike's insightful lyrics on their early songs, Brian would have been largely unheard

Saw something similar on Prime or Netflix a week ago. It took me into the very early 70s before I really began to like the Beach Boys after I had bought a best of and the Surf’s Up. Always liked most of their singles up to that time but their albums just weren’t on my radar. That soon changed after Surf’s Up, got most if not all their albums now

Argentinian band's debut release from 1999.

I've waded through 6 of their albums over the last few weeks and they are all really good. Although I 1st played a few tracks in 2012, I count this as a delightful discovery.

"Lives outgrown" : Beth Gibbons.
OK, it's basically Portishead, but it still sounds great
