About this album

Pacific Ocean Blue is Dennis Wilson’s only solo album, released on August 22, 1977. The crowning achievement of the brand of melancholy and introspective songwriting Dennis had been composing for near on a decade, it is regarded as perhaps the finest The Beach Boys solo album, notably outselling that group’s contemporary album release at a time when tensions between Dennis and other group members were high. Out of print for decades, a lengthy legal battle ensured a successful re-release of the album on compact disc (this time as an expanded 30th anniversary edition) in 2008.

    This is a beautiful little record, Wilson shows that he has picked up some production tips during his year as a Beach Boy. Difference is in that where Beach Boys uses a plethora of instruments to create a sunny day at the beach, while Pacific... sounds more like sundown in a cold summer breeze. What i find most striking is the contrast between Wilsons worn voice, and the beautiful sweeping use of strings. Truly wonderful! 8/10

    I swear I cook by this re-release and I always either end up singing along and dancing around with utensils in hand or just starinfg into the sink... Wistful it is, yet with an underlying mastery, however haphazard...

    sublime. i never knew Dennis had this much in him as a solo artist until getting the reissue last year.

    'River Song' is like the lovechild of the Beach Boys and Elton John — and that's a good thing!

    And Bamboo is now spelled as Bambu, as Dennis apparently intended it to be spelled.
