Despite the creative renaissance of Beach Boys Love You, the group was in shambles. Brian Wilson was falling back into drug use and battling mental illness. Mike Love insisted the album be recorded at Iowa's Maharishi International University (hence M.I.U. Album). Then the record company rejected the idea of a Beach Boys Christmas album, so several tracks needed to have their vocals scrubbed and new, non-seasonal lyrics added. Only the group's superior musicianship rescues this one. The songwriting is strained. However, the covers of The Del-Vikings' "Come Go With Me" and Buddy Holly's "Peggy Sue" let Al Jardine do his vocal best and for the group to kick back with some old favorites. Carl Wilson brings a prettiness to "Sweet Sunday Kinda Love," while "Belles of Paris" features inventive harmonies. Yet the overall feel of the album is of one that's out of fashion with current trends in pop music and more aligned with adult contemporary music.
