AllMusic Review by

There are countless Beach Boys compilations on the market, and everything included here is easily available elsewhere, but what makes I Love You a little bit different is that it truly does focus on the group's love songs rather than the surfing and hot rod material that is found on most Beach Boys comps. Brian Wilson wrote marvelous love songs, full of a fragile, yearning innocence that -- in his case -- turned out to be pretty close to the heart of the matter. Includes classics like "Wendy," "Don't Worry Baby," "Wouldn't It Be Nice," and "God Only Knows." [This Japanese release reproduces the original EMI edition.]
