Reviews

-Mention. San Gabriel Valley Newspapers, June 10, 2007 --Sanford Lakoff
""Inside the Music of Brian Wilson: The Songs, Sounds, and Influences of the Beach Boys' Founding Genius "is a pick any Beach Boys fan needs: while Brian Wilson's life has received extensive documentation in other biographies, here the focus is solely on his music, not his life and what a welcome change that is, for fans of his sound...Rock music collections will find it an invaluable exploration."- "The Internet Bookwatch, "July 2007--Sanford Lakoff
"Here, author Lambert dissects every element of Wilsonworld and also provides an abundance of associated stories and intriguing insight. As a source of information, the book is invaluable...this is a welcome addition to the existing surf-sodden library." Fred Dellar, Mojo, May 2007 --Sanford Lakoff
"Lambert's work is extraordinary for what it is, examining the young songwriter piece by piece as Wilson teases out his own voice. It's not exactly poetry, but it is of extraordinary value."--Sanford Lakoff "Times "
"Now, Philip Lambert chimes in with "Inside the Music of Brian Wilson, "which does in fact break new ground...Lambert demonstrates that in the work of composers such as Wilson, popular music can be much more than three minutes of ear candy."- Erik Himmelsbach--Sanford Lakoff
"This book is long overdue. Lambert's knowledge allows him to root Wilson's music exactly, and to detail its growth and the composer's ability to take the unexpected routes...its scholarly approach will fascinate." --Sanford Lakoff
