The LP was named for being their 20th overall album release. Much of it consists of outtakes from earlier albums.

20/20 released in 1969 which did feature the stunning single Do It Again, yet at the time, was the lowest charting Beach Boy album of all time, sliding in at number 68, with Brian Wilson having been hospitalized for nearly all of the sessions. And yes, due entirely to Dennis Wilson, the album will forever be haunted by the Charlie Manson song Never Learn Not To Love. In 1976, prior to his own death, Dennis Wilson said of 20/20, It was the biggest, letdown of The Beach Boy’s career, an album that has embarrassed me through and through.

For 1969’s 20/20, we were presented the ultimate contractual obligation album to close out a decade that saw the surf rock icons transform into various personalities that culminated in a band that didn’t have a direction that seemed absolute nor commercially sound. Like a great deal of their albums, 20/20 barely cut the thirty-minute mark with several cuts of wondrously done pop music, yet in 20/20’s case, hardly any of the music was new and instead relied heavily on outtakes on the elder Wilson’s scrapped pet project Smile and covers. Once you get past the fact that 20/20 is essentially the rest of the Beach Boys relying on years-old songs and covers (a fact that bothered Dennis Wilson immensely upon the album’s release), the album itself isn’t that bad, but provides an interesting look into the identity crisis the band were experiencing.

Irresistable and accesible. 2 people found this helpful. Having heard a lot of Beach Boys from this period? This album doesn't hold together as an instrumental concept in the same manner as their previous several albums to it had. All of the songs on here are of the utmost high quality of course. But they all have the flavor of having been recorded at different times,for sessions that seemed to have very different intentions.
