I like Heathen Chemistry although I guess you're not wrong at all with what you say about it.. It's derivative but some nice songs. An ex girlfriend liked "Stop crying your heart out" so I guess I have some nostalgia for that one.
Don't remember Lucky Old Sun at all and sadly have no desire to hear it or most Brian Wilson solo that isn't his self titled. I really appreciate that 1988 self titled more and more as time goes on.. I went from hating the production to appreciating that it sounds kind of like if Pet Sounds were done with a Fairlight and 80s synths.
