Sweet Insanity

I've been having some issues with Mediafire recently so I've temporarily moved to Rapidshare. Apologies for the lack of recent updates...
:-/  Mediafire's working again. Updating all the download links now...

Here's Sweet Insanity, Brian Wilson's intended follow-up to his self-titled first solo album. General consensus is that the album isn't really all that good (though it has had some praise; some have even called it brilliant), and as a result the album was rejected by the record label. Controversial psychologist and attention whore Eugene Landy had a strong part in the album's creation - at the time he was on a quest to scam as much money as he could off of Wilson by bringing him back into the mainstream, which explains the more... notorious songs on the album. *cough*
