The Wilsons, the much-heralded return of schlock-popsters Carnie and Wendy Wilson — with contributions from dad, troubled Beach Boys genius Brian — is neither a revelation nor an embarrassment. The 4 (of 12) songs featuring Brian’s vocal, production, or compositional input aren’t classics, but they’re not without their charms. The remainder is efficient CHR fodder, less drippy than Wilson Phillips hits but hardly the stuff of pop transcendence. C+
