TJR says

So named as a follow-up to Capitol’s 1963 Hot Rod compilation, “Shut Down”, which included “409” and “Shut Down” but was not a Beach Boys album. The big question here is how on earth can an album lead off with the excellent “Fun Fun Fun”, continue with the sublime “Don’t Worry Baby” (Brian Wilson’s magnificent response to Phil Spector’s “Be My Baby”) yet still be classed as “average” by me? Tunes like “Pom Pom Play Girl” (complete with lyric “Rah Rah Pom Pom Play Girl), “‘Cassius’ Love vs. ‘Sonny’ Wilson” (a banal offering featuring cringe-inducing banter between the two) and “Denny’s Drums” (where we’re subjected to a solo Dennis practice session) ensure that this one goes down forever billed as a “mixed bag”…
