Reviews:

''I Just Wasn't Made for These Times'' is the second released album by former Beach Boys member Brian Wilson. It followed his eponymous debut seven years after its release, a period that saw much upheaval in Wilson's personal life.

After his solo debut, Wilson's controversial psychotherapist, Dr Eugene Landy, also had significant influence on Brian's projected follow-up, ''Sweet Insanity'', which was shelved in 1990 and never released. Finally, after several years of overmedication and manipulation at the hand of Landy, Wilson was released from his care in late 1991, by court order, and was forced to restart a new phase in his life. After Landy's enforced departure, Wilson began a relationship with Melinda Ledbetter, who would help Brian reunite with his family and begin his re-entry into public life.

Feeling ready to become active again, Wilson felt the best thing to do was to remind his fanbase – and himself – how far he had come by revisiting a sampling of songs from his vast catalogue. Teaming up with Don Was, and setting himself in an understated and modest musical environment, he created some refreshingly restrained versions of his songs.

Simultaneously with the recording, a black and white documentary, also directed by Was, captured Brian's public re-awakening, bolstered by interviews with family members and friends. - Wikipedia
