Sun Kissed Gorgeousness....
When Dennis Wilson's solo debut, Pacific Ocean Blue was released in 1977 few people had high expectations for it. Oh how wrong the doubters were. Pacific Ocean Blue was a gorgeous masterpiece and is a distinctly personal statement revealing Dennis Wilson to be a talented and gifted performer in his own right. Wilson's style, both in terms of singing and songwriting, is unique. His voice somehow manages to be both rough and fragile at the same time, making his vocals strangely powerful and moving. 12 songs of gripping need and tortured beauty, sung in a craggy, soulful voice by a surfer dreamboy for whom the California dream was real, but sadly not enough.
