The Beach Boys Today! is the eighth studio album by the American rock band the Beach Boys, released on March 8, 1965. The album signaled a departure from their previous records with its orchestral approach, intimate subject matter, and abandonment of themes related to surfing, cars, or superficial love.
The Beach Boys: Album Guide. America’s longest-running band - from surf rock to studio symphonies and beyond. Further Listening: ‘Wild Honey’ (1967). After the crash-and-burn of the Smile project, the Beach Boys got back to basics, banging out their purest rock & roll manifesto. No poetry, just a 24-minute rush of Carl Wilson soul and garage-band mania. Further Listening: ‘Sunflower’ (1970). Full-grown men by now, the Beach Boys sound ruggedly soulful on Sunflower – their most optimistic and uplifting music ever, in mellow-gold soft-rock mode

The Beach Boys’ first album, Surfin’ Safari came out in the autumn of 1962 and aside from its urging to get on a surfboard it was a mix of covers and co-writes between Brian Wilson and Mike Love as well as Gary Usher. Surfin’ USA continued where their debut album left off, with the distinction of including the Beach Boys first big hit single, when the title song of the album made N. on the Billboard charts. By the time their third album, Surfer Girl, in late 1963, Brian had hit his song-writing stride and their songs were beginning to reference life beyond the beach
In 1985, the Beach Boys released a self-titled album which returned them to the Top 40 with "Getcha Back. It would be the last proper Beach Boys album of the '80s, however. Brian had been steadily improving in both mind and body during the mid-'80s, though the rest of the group grew suspicious of his mentor, Dr. Eugene Landy. Despite the many quarrels, the Beach Boys kept touring during the early '90s, and Mike and Brian actually began writing songs together in 1995. Also, a Brian Wilson documentary titled I Just Wasn't Made for These Times aired on the Disney Channel, with an accompanying soundtrack featuring spare renditions of Beach Boys classics by Brian himself.
NOTE: Although The Beach Boys' reputation was built as a singles act, it was through listening to their albums that I really grew to love them. The depth of their albums, starting with Surfer Girl on, began to be filled with not only the familiar hit singles, but increasingly challenging album cuts and production touches that made them the envy of their contemporaries.
