Hi, my name isn’t Rob Gordon, and I don’t own Championship Vinyl. However, if you were to ask me “Top 5 records with the best first 4 tracks”, I would have to heavily consider “California Nights” by Best Coast to be in that list. The album starts off with “Feeling OK”, followed by “Fine Without You”, “Heaven Sent”, and “In My Eyes”, and I’ll be damned if that isn’t a hell of a way to kick off an album. To be fair, despite the upbeat-ness of many of the tracks, it’s apparent that someone broke Bethany Cosentino‘s heart and the lyrical theme of heartbreak permeates throughout the entire album.
Below are youtube videos, where possible for each of the four songs. Enjoy.
