Pacific Ocean Blue by Dennis Wilson
Released: Aug 1977
Label: Epic
The Beach Boys' Dennis Wilson released Pacific Ocean Blue in 1977 to strong sales and positive reviews before it sank from view. An aptly named theme album, it contrasts the majesty of the sea with the confusion and turmoil of Wilson's life. The frazzled vibes are matched by music that wraps a slick '70s L.A. studio sheen around the euphoric freakiness of psych-era Beach Boys. The results are kind of like Michael McDonald snorkeling through Bowie's submerged Berlin. The bonus cuts from the unreleased follow-up LP are almost as revelatory. It grows deeper with each listen.
