Brian Wilson: Imagination (Giant)
Barney Hoskyns, Spin, August 1998
IT IS HARD NOT TO harbour mixed feelings about Brian Wilson in the late '90s. While its great that hes up and about (and not being "treated" by Dr. Eugene Landy), there is something a bit pathetic about the music he makes whenever anyone tries to carve out a niche for him in the modern world. We have become too used to Brian the professional idiot savant, the walk-on Forrest Gump.
