About this album

Love You is the twenty-first studio album by American rock band The Beach Boys, released on April 11, 1977. Originally conceived as a Brian Wilson solo album titled Brian Loves You; the album was almost entirely written and performed by Brian.

Penned during a process of mental and drug rehabilitation for Brian, Love You has been praised by critics for the album’s honest, unpretentious lyrics, and has been described as a portrait into Brian’s sense of self in 1977. Heavily reliant on 1970s analog synthesizer, the album has been recognised as an idiosyncratic and creative oddity in The Beach Boys’ canon.

    Severely underrated. This is one of the best Beach Boys records.

    Poor Brian. His voice is so hoarse and croaky here. It makes me sad.

    definitely one of my favorite beach boys albums. Brian's music isn't as inventive as it used to be, but the tunes here are undeniably heartfelt and catchy and the entire thing sounds so remarkably odd.

    I can't believe Brian wrote this over 10 years after Pet Sounds. His voice aged about 40 years in that time. His wife doesn't quite fit on this album, either. This album is both bad and great at the same time!!!

    Just listen to the freaking Moog basslines he plays in Johnny Carson between :32 and :36 in between the lines "Ed McMahon comes on and says 'Here's Johnny'." and "Every night at 11:30, he's so funny." It's so good it hurts.

    This album blows my mind. The Moog bass lines that Brian plays for basically every song are incredible. Especially at certain parts in Mona and Johnny Carson. What a freaking genius. Also the 3-hit snare hits he does in several of the songs, particularly in Johnny Carson are so damn awesome. Such an incredible album. So overlooked.
